Justin Bieber is totally okay with YouTube star Tyler Oakley thinking he’s “so hot” in the video for “Where Are U Now.” On Sunday, Oakley tweeted to the pop star, “When @justinbieber snarls through clenched teeth at :44 of ‘where are u now’ I kind of die & go to heaven it’s so hot sorry SORRY I’m sorry.”

Bieber responed to Oakley’s tweet, writing, “@tyleroakley It happens. No need to apologize. Lol.” Apparently, Bieber’s simple response made Oakley’s day. The YouTube star wrote back to Bieber, “You acknowledging & accepting my thirst on the day of the LA gay pride parade??? What an LGBTQ icon thank you for this blessing.” Oakley added in another tweet, “When a pop star notices you thirsting for him okay yes hello okay cool hi hello.”

Although different in many respects, both Bieber and Oakley owe their careers to YouTube. For Oakley, YouTube has allowed him to reach a huge audience for his commentary on pop culture and a number of social and political issues. And Bieber, of course, was discovered by Scooter Braun, who saw him as a young boy performing on YouTube.
