TikTok star Noah Beck has spoken out about the controversial pricing of his TikTok collaborations, with fans initially believing that they had to pay up to 10,000$ in order to duet with him on the app.

Sway House star Noah Beck enraged fans and critics alike with his apparent decision to charge 10,000$ for fans to perform TikTok duets with him.

With many people calling the price bracket “unfair” and “insane”,  the whole ordeal went viral, which led to fans mocking Beck for “thinking he was Harry Styles”, with one Instagram user asking: “Who does he think he is?”

After Beck didn’t comment on the situation publicly, he was confronted by paparazzi group Pap Galore while he was out walking his dog.

“There’s been a lot of drama with people saying that your prices are too high, with TikTok…” one paparazzi remarked. “I think it’s worth it; you’re one of TikTok’s top creators so obviously you should charge more, right?”

Defending himself, Beck claimed that the prices for TikTok duets were set “for a brand”, and argued that “people don’t seem to really understand what [the feature] is.”

Admitting that he thinks the price is a bit “ridiculous”, Beck affirmed that the duet prices weren’t set by him, and further clarified that the prices weren’t there for fans, but for a brand: “Obviously I’ve done [duets] before, and I’ve never charged for it.”

Beck had initially angered fans after they thought that he was charging 10,000$ for TikTok duets with them.

“I know people have been saying like: ‘He thinks he’s Harry Styles’ but it really isn’t like that, it’s just a brand deal,” Beck elaborated. “I don’t think anyone should be charging 10,000$ for a TikTok duet.”

Fans of the TikTok star have certainly faced a lot of confusion recently; his girlfriend, Dixie D’Amelio, caused speculation earlier this month that the two had split after tweeting that she was single. She later reassured concerned followers that the Tweet was part of a YouTube video she was doing with Sway House member Bryce Hall.

Either way, at least we know Noah Beck isn’t audacious enough to charge 10 racks for a simple TikTok duet.

YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles may have just teased one of the biggest games of Among Us we’ve seen yet, tagging massively popular personalities like Corpse Husband, Dream, and many more.

InnerSloth’s whodunnit-style game took over the entire internet last year — two years after its initial release — due to its group-based gameplay and hilarious moments that can arise at any time as players attempt to determine the impostor in their midst.

In that timeframe, quite a few content creators also rose to prominence in part because of their hilarious Among Us playthroughs, with the likes of Corpse Husband and more gaining millions of subscribers.

Since then, internet personalities from the “mainstream” have even jumped in on the trend, as seen when TikTok star Addison Rae tried her hand at the game with Dream and Quackity.

Innersloth’s viral video game has become a viral internet sensation two years after its initial release.

Now, makeup mogul James Charles is getting in on the hype, and he’s bringing some of the game’s most popular players along with him for a huge lobby that will undoubtedly score an impressive amount of viewers.

On February 25, James Charles sent out a surprising tweet that tagged some of Among Us’s biggest names: Dream, Corpse Husband, GeorgeNotFound, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, TommyInnit, Quackity, and Karl Jacobs, to be exact.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow?” he asked — and while it’s not 100% certain that an Among Us lobby is exactly what he’s got in mind for February 26, it certainly seems to be that way, considering the sheer number of players he tagged who have quite a history with the game.

At the time of writing, Charles’ tweet has certainly amped up the hype, garnering over 32k likes and counting as more and more of the tagged players chime in.

Charles himself has a fairly decent Among Us track record of sorts, having played an “IRL” version of the game with fellow YouTube stars before. That being said, these players could be grouping up for something similar, although considering the current health crisis, a virtual Among Us lobby seems more probable.

There’s no set time for their broadcast just yet, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on for those interested in seeing what sort of antics this star-studded squad will get into in just 24 hours’ time.
