Comedian and TikTok star Connor Wood recently found himself in a whirlwind of emotion after his phone was bombarded with messages. He initially feared that someone in his family had passed away, only to discover that Dua Lipa had shared one of his tweets on Instagram. The “Dance The Night” songstress included Wood’s tweet in a photo dump she posted, which led to an overwhelming response from fans and followers. Wood, speaking exclusively to Page Six, recalled waking up to the barrage of messages and the temporary panic it caused. He humorously remarked, “I was like phew, no, you’re just on Dua Lipa’s Instagram! That was all time.”
Humor and Manifestation
Wood, who gained fame on TikTok in 2020 under the username @fibulaa and has since garnered almost 800,000 followers, playfully shared that he had actually “manifested” the interaction with Dua Lipa. In one of his tweets, he expressed his desire to be included in one of the pop star’s photo dumps. Little did he know that his wish would come true. Wood even jokingly suggested that meeting Dua Lipa would grant him superpowers akin to Spiderman. While unsure of the specific powers he would acquire, he admitted that the experience felt life-changing and left him “acting different.”
Wood’s online encounter with Dua Lipa was just one among a series of interactions with celebrities since his rise to fame in the comedy world.
