TikTok star Nessa Barrett has hit back at claims that she copied Madison Beer’s ‘Selfish’ music video with one of her recent Instagram posts.

As TikTok has boomed in popularity and hit the mainstream, it has created a wide-ranging number of new social media stars. Some have branched out from TikTok to YouTube while others are all about Twitter and Instagram instead. 


In recent days, Nessa Barrett – who has close to ten million followers on TikTok – has come under fire from fans of Madison Beer for apparently copying her ‘Selfish’ music video but taking pictures of herself sitting under the backdrop of rain.

While the TikTok star had remained quiet on the matter, she has now responded with a few different comments on her Instagram.

Nessa Barrett has gained popularity through TikTok.

Instead of replying to different individual comments, Barrett just dropped a general comment under her post on July 27 noting that she isn’t “copying anyone” with the theme of her photo.

“Hi! Rain has been used so many times before not just by one person,” the TikTok star commented on her post. “No, I’m not copying anyone. It’s a total different vibe. Please stop comparing me. I’m myself and only myself.”


That wasn’t her only response on the matter, however, as Nessa also dropped an Instagram story about the comments with a similar message. 

“Hi babes! Pls [please] stop comparing me to other people,” she said. “I’m myself and will also be myself.”


While the TikTok star will, no doubt, want the matter to be closed, she can’t stop people making comparisons because that’s always going to happen in one way or another. 

She could restrict comments on her Instagram posts like other people do themselves, but that would also take away the supportive responses that she gets. So, we’ll just have to see what happens later down the line.

Mr Beast has announced The Creator Games 2 that will put internet personalities like Charli D’Amelio, Ninja, MKBHD, and more, to the ultimate test of wits where the winner will get $300,000 to giveaway to their fans.

Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” Though it doesn’t look like the winner of yesteryear’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, will be returning to defend his title.


This means that there’s going to be a new champion of The Creator Games to crown. Though the contestants shouldn’t expect the same format as last year.

Instead, Mr Beast is going to change the competition with a “Wheel of Games” that will pick every matchups game.


When is The Creators Games 2?

The $300k event will pit some of the biggest personalities for the second round of the Games.

Mr Beast is going to go live for The Creators Games 2 on Saturday, October 17 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST on his YouTube channel.

Who is in The Creator Games 2?

Mr Beast invited 24 creators split into two different brackets, and the gamemaster already revealed the first round of matchups to look out for.


In Round 1 matchups:

  • Addison Rae v Ninja
  • KSI v Rosanna Pansino
  • Mark Rober v Gibi
  • Safiya Nygaard v Kwebbelkop
  • Charli & Dixie D’Amelio v Preston Arsement
  • Yes Theory v Bretman Rock
  • Typical Gamer v Lexi Rivera
  • Dream v Matpat & Steph
  • Alex Warren v Lazarbeam
  • Matt Stone v Marques Brownlee
  • Laurenzside v ZHC
  • Swoozie v Jaiden Animations

Needless to say, the tourney is stacked with some of the most popular faces on the internet today. Though there are fans who are already casting their predictions, it might be too early to call because of the unpredictability of the event.

There’s going to be a ton of twists and turns for competitors and fans alike to watch out for. The Wheel of Games will have challenges that range from “trivia to geography, spelling bees, and beyond.” Not only that, the fans will be able to vote an eliminated contestant in the late rounds of The Creator Games.

In 2019, the Games was one of the most-viewed YouTube Originals live events bringing in over 662,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 35 million views.
