Beat Saber creator really wants Elon Musk’s new EDM track in the game

Tesla CEO and tech billionaire Elon Musk surprised the internet by releasing an impromptu EDM song on January 30 — and a certain game creator is vying for the track to make an appearance in their product.

Musk’s electronic single, titled “Don’t Doubt Ur Vibe,” isn’t a full-on banger that the online buzz might have you believe, instead boasting a rather relaxed atmosphere and oddly inspiring lyrics provided by the SpaceX CEO, himself.

At the time of writing, Elon’s track has amassed over 1.9 million plays on Soundcloud, alone — and although it doesn’t necessarily slap, that isn’t stopping the creator of a viral video game from trying to get the song on its playlist.

Popular rhythm game “Beat Saber” is a known haven for electronic bops, which players jam out to while wielding lightsabers and cutting various directions in half to the beat.

As ridiculous as it sounds, the title provides some seriously hype moments for players and fans alike — and it seems that creator and composer Jaroslav Beck hopes to add to those moments with Musk’s new single, according to a Tweet he made the very next day.

“Hey, how about bringing this to Beat Saber?” Beck wrote, prompting a slew of mixed opinions in the comments below.

While Musk has yet to respond to Beck’s humorous request, it would certainly make for an interesting addition to the game, which can already be customized with whatever tracks users so desire.

Beck isn’t the only game-centric creator to have commented on Musk’s viral EDM single, either: Epic Games’ Brian Sharon also weighed in on the song, writing, “EDM = Elon Does Music.”

Even Incubus’ lead vocalist Brian Sharon had something to say regarding the track, commenting, “@IncubusBand and Elon Musk release new dope tracks on the same day… coincidence? Come on tour with us, bro.”

Although whether “Don’t Doubt Ur Vibe” will make it on Beat Saber as an official track remains to be seen, the song adds yet another chapter to the celebrity’s already bursting book full of memeable internet moments from the past few years.

TikTok Star Zoe Laverne admits she “caught feelings” for underage fan

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
