Drag Race fan-favorite Gottmik and pop star Ariana Grande share a fun moment on Instagram that has their fans hoping for a future collaboration.

RuPaul’s Drag Race star Gottmik shared an iconic social media moment with princess of pop Ariana Grande. Grande took to social media to show her love for the drag performer in a cute and hilarious way. Gay history was made as soon as Gottmik responded. The interaction had fans of both Gottmik and Grande saying Gottmik’s iconic catchphrase, “Gagatondra.

Gottmik made history by being the first transgender male to compete on RuPaul’s Drag Race. The drag performer, whose name is Kade Gottlieb out of drag, made an immediate connection to both the viewers and the judges’ panel with their stunning fashions, comedic timing and joyous personality. They won the two most iconic challenges a queen can win on Drag Race: the ball and snatch game. Grande’s obsession with the star is no surprise at all.

“Help Me” said Grande in an Instagram Story, “Guess who doesn’t know how to do drag make up.” The Grammy Award-winning singer donned Gottmik’s signature make-up consisting of a white clown face and black lipstick. “Love you so much,” said the star while sharing her ode to Gottmik’s artistry. She giggled throughout the two posts, captioning them, “@gottmik I really want to be u but it’s just not in the cards” and “I MEANT WELL @gottmik.

“I AM DYING,” responded Gottmik on their own Instagram Stories with a laughing emoji. “Love you my fav drag queeenn.” An additional Story by the trailblazing queen said, “Ok honestly I live my gorge twin.” Grande responded to that one with a crying emoji and a white heart. Gottmik posted a reaction on Twitter as well, posting, “My drag daughter is stunning.” Fans of both icons went crazy in the comments, affirming both stars with love. Many fans asked for a collaboration between Grande and Gottmik.

Gottmik made the final four in season 13 of RuPaul’s Drag Race and competed for the crown. The herstory maker faced off in a lip sync for the crown against the tough competition of Rosé, Kandy Muse and Symone. Gottmik stood a fighting chance at taking home the win, but Symone ended up winning.

Season 13 has been a fun season of drag race filled with iconic moments, one that even landed an MTV Movies and TV Award nomination. Gottmik has served throughout the competition and it was exciting to see how they did. They would have been a shoo-in on RuPaul’s Drag Race as long as Ariana Grande had anything to say about it.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …





Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a
