8 Male Celebrities Who Slid Into a Fan’s DMs Looking for a Hookup
If you’re familiar with the hit Yo Gotti song, “Down In the DM,” OR the “Sliding into the DMs Like…” meme, then you understand that private messaging someone on social media has basc become a cultural phenomenon. We’re joking (kind of), but it IS true that a lot of people are choosing to communicate over Twitter and Instagram direct messages as a way to get to know someone they wouldn’t necessarily meet IRL.
Stars like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift have used direct messaging on apps to talk to fans and thank them for their support… but other celebrities’ use of the DM has been, well, not as ~pure~. Honestly, as long as the online convos are between two consenting adults, there is NO judgement coming from over here! In fact, a lot of us would probably feel #blessed to see a message from our favorite celebrity pop up in our IG inboxes… flirty or not!
We all know Nick loves the dating game, so it wasn't exactly shocking to hear he uses his phone to find ladies. Even though the go-to dating app for most millennials is Tinder, this 24-year-old stud prefers IG to set up his smooch seshes.
"Slide right in [the DMs] sometimes. And then you'll text the person and finally meet the person. It's like online dating," he told Complex magazine. However popular the former Disney Channel star is, he's still not immune to first-date jitters. "Even that freaks me the f*ck out. I'm like, should it be a group? Just the person? It's scary."
Ummm, if he thinks he's nervous for his first date with a girl he met on Instagram, just imagine being the fan! #goals.
