Internet stars Valkyrae and Bella Poarch are ringing in Valentine’s Day with a bang after unleashing a surprise photoshoot together — and the internet losing their minds.
YouTube streamer Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter and TikTok star-turned-music artist Bella Poarch are two major powerhouses in the influencer space.
The two are fairly close friends, as well, with Rae notably appearing in Poarch’s ‘Inferno’ music video alongside several other prominent streamers in August 2021.
But no one was expecting Valkyrae to announce she would be revealing a full-scale photoshoot with Poarch for Valentine’s Day — and that’s exactly what she did.
On February 14, 2022, Poarch and Hofstetter unleashed a slew of photos on their Twitter timelines, showing the pair decked out in several jaw-dropping outfits to celebrate Valentine’s Day (and Poarch’s birthday, which was on February 8).
Poarch even created a full-on website to showcase all of the photos and behind-the-scenes videos, some of which they shared to social media, too.

It’s safe to say that these pics broke the internet, with several high profile content creators losing their minds in the comments section.
“OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I FELL TO MY KNEES IN THE MIDDLE OF TARGET,” streamer Emma Langevin praised.

“Love is fake,” Minecraft star Dream joked in a comment, to which Valkyrae responded: “Who hurt you, Dream?”

“Happy birthday, I’m just glad Valentine’s Day isn’t real,” YouTuber Quackity replied.

Even esports organizations got in on the fun, with SoaR Gaming saying in a cheeky reply: “What I would give to be the teddy bear in the 3rd pic.”

Bella Poach also interacted with streamer Karl Jacobs, who jokingly told Valkyrae happy birthday as a cheeky congrats on their internet-breaking shoot.
Valkyrae & Bella Poarch’s Dropbox disabled over Valentine’s Day photoshoot
It seems that the deadly duo did, in fact, break the internet: Shortly after posting their pics to Twitter, Poarch revealed that they’d been temporarily disabled on Dropbox, where it seems they were hosting images from the photoshoot.
Screenshots from Dropbox support shows that the influencers were “generating excessive traffic” and needed to upgrade their subscription to continue hosting their images.
It’s clearer now than ever that the internet can’t get enough of Valkyrae and Bella Poarch’s spicy Valentine’s Day pics, leading some fans to wonder if this collab could signal for even more projects from the two influencers in the future – say, perhaps, another music video?
