It’s every fangirl’s biggest dream to receive a DM from Justin Bieber. I mean, the pop star is constantly on Instagram anyway. He might as well share the love with his fans. So imagine School of Rock star, Breanna Yde’s surprise when she logged into Instagram only to find that Justin Bieber himself had slid into her DMs.
“I just saw the little ‘1’ on my DM, so I swiped over and I was like ‘Um.’ It was literally like when you’re reading a script and they go ‘Dot, dot, dot.’ That was me,” she said.
A singer herself, Breanna is a huge fan of Justin’s music, especially “I’ll Show You” from Purpose. Justin sent Breanna “Ur awesome” with a little red heart underneath.
“Justin always sends hearts,” Breanna told J-14. “After every message, he sends a heart after. I think that’s kind of his thing. I kind of evolved and I do that, too, now.”
But how does someone even respond to one of the biggest pop stars in the world complementing you? According to Breanna, there’s a lot of trial and error.
She told us, “I kept sending responses and then un-sending them. I was so nervous I was gonna make a bad impression. I ended up saying ‘Thanks so much, I love your music.’”
It turns out that the feeling is mutual. Justin told Breanna how much he likes her voice and tone – a huge compliment coming from him. Now, they’re kind of like Instagram friends. Since then, Breanna and Justin have a had a few conversations and she says that “he goes on [her] Instagram sometimes and checks out some of [her] videos.” Breanna’s Instagram is full of her singing covers of popular songs or songs from her TV show, School of Rock.
School of Rock is returning for season three soon and J-14 got an exclusive scoop on what we should expect straight from the star herself.
“We get to do this amazing huge performance at the end of this season,” Breanna, who plays Tomika, teased. “I can’t say why, but it’s huge and it’s probably one of my favorite performances that we’ve done.”
Even though season three will be full of original songs, the huge performance features a song fans everywhere will know, but you’ll just have to wait and see! Breanna says “Anyone who knows the song is going to be like ‘Yes!’”
But since new episodes of School of Rock won’t be back until November, you can catch Breanna Yde in the new movie Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library on October 9, 2017 on Nickelodeon.
