Singer and rapper Ashnikko has hit out at TikTok “straight boys” for using her latest single ‘Daisy’ as a sound for their videos.

The blue-haired singer is a well-known voice on TikTok after her song ‘Stupid’ went viral on the platform. The song was used by some of the app’s biggest stars including Loren Gray, Josh Richards, and Avani Gregg. In total, the official track was used 2.4 million times.

Since then Ashnikko has enjoyed even more success and attention, having collaborated with other musicians such as Grimes and Brooke Candy.

Her most recently released single ‘Daisy’ has been used by TikTok stars such as Abby Roberts and Caleb Finn. It’s also a sound frequently used for one of the latest trends where creators imagine themselves inside the Harry Potter universe.

Ashikko herself is an avid TikToker, frequently posting clips from her music videos or short comedy videos, and she’s earned 1.3 million followers as a result.

But when it comes to the use of her music, Ashnikko isn’t afraid to express her opinion. On Tuesday she duetted user @jacksonpassaglia who used ‘Daisy’ for a video, made faces of disgust, and wrote, “Please god no don’t let straight boys do this to my baby.”

In the comments below she added, “the way this brought me straight back to my twilight phase, actual chills down my spine! Fear and terror.”

The video in question is captioned “pov a girl wants to become a vampire, like her bf” and uses two lines from the song: “I’m crazy but you like that, I bite back.” The rest of the dialogue is made up by Jackson to fit the scene he created.

Ashnikko even commented on the video itself saying, “yes Edward kill me!!”

Fans of the song were quick to agree with one user writing, “I’m so sorry we’ll get through this together.” Another person added, “Imagine making a video and the creator of the song you use makes a video gagging lmao.”

Obviously, sounds on TikTok are free for any creator to use, so Ashnikko might not have much luck stopping people, but she’s clearly not afraid to make the request.


TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
