The 'I Understood The Assignment' TikTok Audio Explained

Kid smiling with an A plus grade

A social media trend has reached peak popularity whenever brands start participating in it; by the time junior creatives and social media interns finish pitching and explaining a trend for approval, it's probably already been seen on every platform. So, with that in mind, it should be easy to backtrack the timeline of a trend to learn more about it when a brand joins in on the fun. One glaring exception is the Duolingo Owl — that's one up-to-date bird.

McDonalds' "I understood the assignment" era on Twitter began in the second half of 2021. So did  Starbucks '. With a calculation based on conjecture, the trend can be traced back to the beginning of 2021. We looked to Know Your Meme for confirmation, and it turns out we were right. This is what high school teachers meant when they said that we'd use math after graduating.

This particular phrase has garnered extreme attention across all social media platforms. On TikTok , videos submitted under the "I understood the assignment" hashtag have received more than 600 million views; an excess of 30,000 posts wear it on Instagram . But what does it mean? And why is there an entire song dedicated to it? Read on to learn more.

The 'I understood the assignment' trend has been used by celebrities

How was the "I understood the assignment" trend created? In March 2021, a Twitter user @thering26 posted stills of Uma Thurman in numerous acting roles. "Uma Thurman will always understand the assignment," the accompanying text read. Soon, the phrase and meme format spread across Twitter like wildfire; it is used to describe someone who knows how to get the job done (via Know Your Meme ). The meme format is particularly popular for talking about actors who can pull off very different roles with top-notch acting.

A few months later, artist Tay Money put a new spin on the trend. She released a song that claimed she understood " The Assignment ." The artist herself used a part of the song that said "I understood the assignment" on TikTok. This led to a trend of people posting accomplishments and stories that proved that they knew what was expected of them and went above and beyond (via Know Your Meme ). 

Even celebrities hopped on the trend. Taylor Swift used it to promote "All Too Well" (via YouTube ) and basically immortalized the phrase. There are currently around 250 million views on the "the assignment" hashtag on TikTok . It also led to the creation of another relatable sound that remixes Tay Money's song with Reese Witherspoon in "Legally Blonde" saying, " Actually, I wasn't aware that we had an assignment ." And that's how one meme took over the internet.

TikTok explores what it truly means to 'understand the assignment'

You've probably seen the phrase "understood the assignment" used to death on social media. Here's why everyone is saying it. The slang term is a popular way to praise someone who is going above and beyond to do a good job. According to Urban Dictionary, "understood the assignment" means, "a phrase used when someone is giving it 110% ... Whether it’s what they’re doing, what they’re wearing, someone who is really on top of their s***" . In the Twitter trend, users pay tribute to their favorite actors and actresses who've been able to pull off a slew of eclectic roles. TikTok tends to go along with Urban Dictionary's definition, rather than focusing on celebrities

30+ ready-to-use TikTok lesson ideas for teachers - The Complete Classroom Guide

the assignment tiktok song

TikTok… yet another social network that keeps today’s students even more glued to their smartphones. Its short, entertaining videos have become immensely popular during the early days of the pandemic, but many teachers, parents, and researchers are worried about the impact of this application on today’s youth.

Despite this justified skepticism, TikTok does offer interesting possibilities for adding interactivity, creativity, and fun to lessons. Moreover, questions and assignments can be easily linked to a TikTok video by embedding it in BookWidgets.

This blog post is a complete “TikTok guide for teachers”, which includes the following components:

What is TikTok?

How does tiktok work, reasons to consider using tiktok in the classroom, ready-to-use tiktok lesson ideas.

  • How to integrate TikTok videos in BookWidgets?

Best practices for using TikTok in the classroom

All digital exercises are created with BookWidgets . Create a free BookWidgets account (if you don’t have one already) and duplicate the widgets, which will allow editing. All examples are in this BookWidgets Blog group .

What is TikTok

TikTok is a video-sharing platform launched in 2016 by the Chinese company ByteDance. With over 1 billion active users and counting, it ranks 7th in the list of most used social media applications.

According to TikTok’s website, the application is “the leading destination for short-form mobile video. TikTok’s mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy”.

The platform is hugely popular amongst teens and tweens who watch, like, share, comment, and create uncountable ultra-short videos. The content on the platform is created by TikTok’s users (TikTokers) and covers a large variety of topics: pranks, DIY tricks, cooking tips, fashion, education, fitness… but TikTok is best known for its music and dance videos. The trending hashtags (#) and popular challenges encourage users to create and share their versions of viral videos, which might give some creators the hope of becoming a famous TikToker one day.

With an average usage time of 52 minutes per day, it is apparent that TikTok is an engaging (while some might say addictive) platform.

How does TikTok work

What makes TikTok different from other social media platforms, is the way new content is shown to the users. On most platforms, users begin by following people, brands, or organizations and then see the content they share. Sometimes, users get some suggestions based on interests or the popularity in a network ( similar to the suggested videos YouTube provides users on the right side of the screen ), but basically, the majority of content is related to user choice.

TikTok is different. When users set up a profile, the app directs them to indicate some areas of interest (with suggested topics) before being redirected to the TikTok home screen - the For You Page .

TikTok Choose content

Once at the For You Page , the video stream immediately starts playing! Users will be able to see the first video which they can like, comment and share. If they want to see the next video, swipe up on a mobile device (or use the arrows on a computer keyboard). It is possible to watch thousands of videos without following a single profile.

Over time, TikTok’s algorithm understands which kind of content you like and will show you related videos. Even if you follow some accounts, the home screen will show you a lot of content from accounts that you’re not necessarily following, except if you click on Following on the top of the screen. Nevertheless, most users don’t seem to use this Following option and prefer scrolling through the For You Page to discover new trends.

TikTok For You Page

It is also possible to search for specific videos in the Discover -area of the app. Here, viewers will be able to see a list of trending hashtags and related videos. They are also able to search for videos by topic using the search bar tool.

Users who want to create videos will quickly find the + button in the middle of the page. There are endless possibilities to video creation. Adding images, stickers, text, and audio, adding special effects and applying filters … anything is possible. Creative minds will certainly find enough tools to produce fun, engaging content.

TikTok create content with special effects

One of the best features for creative TikTokers: the app contains a database with thousands of songs that creators can very easily add to videos.

This music library definitely contributes to the app’s popularity, given the huge number of videos where young people dance and/or lip-sync to popular songs. Some of these videos go viral and are the start of a “TikTok trend”, which encourages others to make their own version of a popular video. Viewers might even be tempted to try a TikTok challenge , like The Celeb Look-Alike Challenge which needs no further explanation.

With features like Duet , which allows creators to put a video next to an existing one, and Stich , which allows users to add a video at the end of an existing video, TikTok is pushing even harder on the idea of users inspiring each other to create more content for a fastly growing community.

Reasons why you should consider using TIkTok in your lessons

With this understanding of TikTok, how can educators add value and incorporate these videos into lessons? What are the benefits of using TikTok in the 21st century classroom? How can the platform be used as and education tool? Let’s investigate:

  • TikTok videos are short and to the point . This is important knowing the attention span of many classroom learners. Suggestions for use are as a lesson starter, or lesson summary. This may be a great time saver rather than selecting a longer YouTube video.
  • Depending on grade levels, many students may already be using TikTok. Learners will be excited to utilize TikTok in the educational environment and may even encourage user to discover more instructive TikTok videos and accounts.
  • When introducing the use of TikTok in class, educators have a wonderful opportunity to discuss digital citizenship, media literacy , screen time and the influence apps like TikTok have on learners. A reflection and discussion about social media in general is a great idea in any classroom environment.
  • Last but not least, the platform offers funny, original, and inspiring videos relating to almost any topic an educator can imagine. By providing students TikTok assignments with authentic real-world content this moves teaching and learning up the SAMR model of technology creation while at the same time allowing educators to show “withitness” by keeping up with trending topics in students’ lives..

Ready-to-use TikTok lesson ideas

Fully convinced now with the idea of using TikTok videos in your lessons? Wondering how to introduce TikTok into lessons? Where can good, appropriate videos be found? Let’s check out some lesson ideas and examples which can be used for any subject.

First, I’ll give you some general TikTok lesson ideas and examples. These TikTok ideas for teachers could be used for any school subject:

1. Use a TikTok video as a lesson starter

  • 2. Use a TikTok video for a summary at the end of a lesson
  • 3. Ask students to search for a TikTok video about a lesson topic
  • 4. Ask students to present a TikTok video
  • 5. Ask students to create a video about the lesson topic
  • 6. Write a comment for a TikTok video

Click on the links (below) for curated lesson ideas and examples for specific content and subject areas:

  • 1. World languages
  • 5. Economics and Marketing
  • 7. Physical education
  • 8. Technical courses
  • 10. Information Technology (IT)

General TikTok lesson ideas (+ examples)

With a TikTok video at the start of a lesson, educators will definitely grab students’ attention. Showing a video related to the upcoming lesson will be a great starting point to start a discussion, activate prior knowledge and create excitement for learning.

2. Use a TikTok video for a summary at the end of your lesson

TikTok videos can also provide a solution for bringing it all together at the end of a lesson. A short yet powerful video will catch the learners’ attention of last time… and may even create opportunities to extend the lesson beyond the ringing of the dismissal bell. A TikTok video may also be integrated into an exit slip to assess students’ understanding of the day’s topic. Read more about exit tickets in a previous blog post .

TikTok lesson idea - Physics - Centrifugal force

3. Ask students to research for a TikTok video about your lesson topic

Why go looking for good videos when there is a classroom full of TikTok expert users. Ask students to find a school appropriate video on the lesson topic and create a curated video library. Students will be using their critical thinking skill and may even consider this the best homework assignment ever. In addition, they will probably find good videos that you can use again in your next lessons. Tip: teach them how to search for videos using hashtags and how to share the video link.

TikTok lesson idea - English ESL - Tourism in Europe

4. Ask students to present a TikTok clip

This lesson idea stems directly from the previous idea. If students are able to find and appropriate TikTok video, extend the learning by allowing learners to orally present their research in class.

TikTok lesson idea - English ESL - Cooktok

5. Write a comment on a TikTok video

Ask students to write a comment for a particular video. This activity will encourage students to spend time analyzing the video content as well as understanding the importance of writing thoughtful comments on social media. Of course, always get parental permission as needed. Students don’t actually need to post this comment on TikTok. Comments can be easily sent to the instructor using the Split Worksheet option is BookWidgets. An example is provided below.

TikTok lesson idea - Video about opinions - Writing exercise

6. Ask students to create a video about the lesson topic

“I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand.” - Confucius

It is a very good idea to ask students to create a video about lessons. By engaging with the lesson content in a different way, students will learn more and acquire various skills while stimulating creativity, critical thinking and communication.

Note that the word “TikTok” is missing from this lesson idea. As explained later in this blog post, it is not recommended that you require your students to create a TikTok account and add content to it. There are plenty of alternative video creation apps that allow students to let their creativity run wild (e.g., Clips, Flipgrid, Kinemaster, and Quik).

TikTok lesson ideas and examples for specific school subjects

Below, you’ll find you some TikTok lesson ideas and examples for specific school subjects:

  • 10. Information technology (IT)

1. Tiktok lesson ideas for world languages

Apart from the above mentioned general ideas, there are numerous ways to utilize TikTok videos in a language lesson:

  • I. Make use of thousands of videos published by dedicated language-learning accounts

II. Incorporate the Duet function for practicing conversations

III. Deploy TikTok videos for listening comprehension

  • IV. Utilize the surprise effect of the “For you page” to practice expressing an opinion

V. Find inspiration for book reports

I. Make use of thousands of videos published by dedicated language learning accounts

There are many dedicated language learning TikTok accounts. Because their videos are so short, they often contain very concrete tips or a short, simple explanation of important grammar rules. The videos with pronunciation tips are also an added value because this is something you find much less on other platforms. I’ve made a selection of interesting and good-quality TikTok accounts for learning English, French, Spanish and German.

Suggested TikTok accounts for learning English :

  • I am that English teacher
  • Real-life English
  • Lingua Marina
  • Andrea Holm English
  • 15 seconds English
  • 30 seconds English
  • Learn English every day

Suggested TikTok accounts for learning French :

  • Madame Paname
  • Studyfrench
  • Encore French Lessons
  • Français avec pierre
  • Oh my French Class
  • Monsieur le prof
  • Maîtresse Adeline

Suggested TikTok accounts for learning Spanish :

  • HelloTalk Spanish
  • Spanish Teacher Latef
  • Spanish Teacher Barcelona
  • Learn SP with me

Suggested TikTok accounts for learning German :

  • Deutch Eins
  • Deutsch coach Begi Begi
  • Dein Sprachcoach
  • German Jobtalk
  • DW Deutsch lernen
  • Deutsch verstehen

Ideas on to to use language learning TikTok videos in class can be found in these BookWidgets examples.

TikTok lesson idea - English ESL - Prepositions

The Duet feature allows TikToks users to react to an existing video by creating a new video. The result is a split-screen video where the original video and the reactions are posted next to each other. This feature is often used for music videos where TikTokers make music together, as in the example with Ed Sheeran earlier in this blog post. Some of the dedicated language-learning accounts publish videos in which the idea is to have a conversation by using the Duet function. If you like this idea, but you don’t want your students to post the result on TikTok because of privacy concerns, you could do this kind of activity within a split worksheet in BookWidgets, like in the two examples I’ve prepared below (one for English, the other for French).

TikTok lesson idea - English ESL - Duet Conversation asking for direction

When teaching language, TikTok is also a great place to find short, interesting authentic videos created by (young) native speakers. Using current, appropriate and fun content in the target language is very motivating for your students. These videos can be used as listening comprehension exercises. See the example provided for French learners, which is based on a video published by an account that promotes interesting activities in the area of Lille, France:

TikTok lesson idea - French FLE - Listening exercise

IV. Use the surprise effect of the For You Page to practice expressing an opinion

This is a really fun TikTok assignment when students are taught how to express their opinions about something. Ask a random student to watch the first video on his or her For you page and provide their opinion. This can be done as a written assignment but may be more engaging and valuable if done orally in class. If there is the option to mirror or project the student device others will be able to watch the video and provide opinions as well.

It is also possible to incorporate (highlight) media literacy at the same time by asking students to reflect why the believe the video appeared on the For You Page and why their classmates see different videos. Please be aware that some topics may be sensitive. Alternatively, you could do the same exercise with some screenshots of preselected TikTok videos, as shown in the example below.

TikTok lesson idea - Languages - Speaking

#Booktok is a popular hashtag on TikTok and it might be a way to introduce some books to students. By researching this hashtag, students may find some interesting ideas for their next book report.

Another lesson idea is to ask students to find a video on TikTok about a book they’ve read or to make their own video book report.

2. TikTok lesson ideas for science courses

If teaching biology, chemistry, or physics, there are plenty of TikTok science experiment videos. Encourage students to create cool science experiment videos just like their favorite TikTokers do!

In the assignment below, students will find nine simple, yet engaging science experiments to do at home. The idea is to watch the videos and then recreate at least three of them, accompanied by scientific explanations.

TikTok lesson idea - Science experiments

Link these TikTok science experiment videos to your lesson topic, like in the example about Centrifugal force (presented earlier in this blog post).

For geography teachers, the Hotspot Image in BookWidgets is a great widget type for integrating TikTok videos from different countries or regions. Check out the example on the Seven Wonders of the World.

TikTok lesson idea - Geography - 7 wonders of the worls

  • Steam Forward Academy
  • Physics is Fun
  • Impossible Science
  • Mel Science
  • Magic Teacher 22
  • A Biology Teacher
  • Mrs. Nancy Bullard
  • Incredible Science

3. TikTok lesson ideas for History classes

Surprisingly, History may be the school subject that has jumped on the TikTok train the fastest. History enactment and explanation videos have been trending on the platform for some time. In this Time magazine article , find more information about the phenomenon and some ideas about the use of this concept in History lessons.

These short history-related videos can be a great addition to lessons. It is important that students understand that a TikTok video never tells the whole story, as it is impossible to do this in the short video format. But it can be a starting point to do more research about a historical topic. One of the first things students will need to learn about is to check the quality, accuracy and bias of the videos as anyone is able to publish videos which may contain incorrect or unsuitable information.

TikTok lesson idea - History - Josephine Baker

Looking for more TikTok videos related to History? Use the hashtags #historytok and #historytiktok , which may help discover relevant content. Here are some suggested TikTok accounts (below).

  • 7 Minutes in history
  • History hit
  • Quick.History
  • Simple History
  • Black Country Living Museum
  • Slavic Caesar
  • History Man
  • S. Dilla Thomas
  • Ryan Tretsky
  • Michael McBride

The accounts listed below are great for covering current events in class.

  • The Global World News

4. TikTok lesson ideas for math lessons

Quite unexpected, but TikTok can also be used for mathematics instruction. There are plenty of videos explaining the basics of math, as well as tricks and best practices. In some videos, the creator gives a question to the viewers, which they can solve via the comments on TikTok. If you want your students to send the answer to you, it can be done very easily via the equations question type in BookWidgets, as shown in the example below.

TikTok lesson idea - Math - Addition of radicals

There are also many instructive videos on geometry. Once again, it is very easy and practical to integrate these videos in BookWidgets to add exercises and receive answers from students. The example below utilizes the WhiteBoard Question type in BookWidgets.

TikTok lesson idea - Math - Theorem of Pythagoras

Want to find more TikTok videos related to math lessons, use the hashtags #mathtok and #mathtiktok to find relevant contend. Some suggested accounts are listed below. As always, please preview content to find the best fit for the classroom.

  • Miss Roseann
  • Markie Does Math
  • Smaller Brain
  • Your Bummy Math Tutor
  • Math Explained 2
  • Quick Learn Academy
  • Quickk Maths

5. TikTok lesson ideas for Economics and Marketing

If teaching Economics, it is interesting to explore the business model of TikTok and other social media platforms with students. Provide an assignment in which they search for information like the mother company, business model, and yearly revenue. Additionally, ask students to investigate how these platforms keep trying to take away each other’s market share. An example of this type of assignment is shown below.

TikTok lesson idea - Economics - Business model

Interesting and relevant economics-related videos on TikTok can be found on the Planet Money account . Their short and funny videos explain a lot of economic concepts in an understandable way.

In Marketing classes, students can explore how some companies use TikTok as part of a marketing campaign. By analyzing these examples, students discover the interests of the platform for companies.

TikTok lesson idea - Economics - Marketing

6. TikTok lesson ideas for Music lessons

TikTok is known for its music videos in which young people dance or lip-sync to popular songs. The platform has become very important to the music industry, as many songs were hits on TikTok long before they were picked up by the mainstream media. There are also plenty of examples of old songs that are enjoying a revival thanks to TikTok. Below are some ready-to-use TikTok lesson ideas for music lessons. Keep up with current trends, new opportunities will undoubtedly emerge.

I. Analyze popular TikTok songs

A first lesson idea is to have students analyze whether there are certain elements that a song should have in order to become popular on TikTok. Today, music creators are searching for the answers because being successful on TikTok can also generate commercial success. Many of the popular TikTok songs have an upbeat rhythm and are easy to sing along, but what exactly makes a song suitable for TikTok is a question that is probably best answered by students.

TikTok lesson idea - Music - TikTok songs

II. Understand the different layers of a song by listening to TikTok Duet creations

TikTok often brings out the musical talent of young people. Thanks to the Duet function, musicians from all over the world can jam with each other, and in this way, new songs can even be created, as in the example below. Such videos are great content when you’re learning students the different layers of a song. They’ll easily understand what each instrument adds to the song.

III. Participate in a musical challenge

In addition to the many dance challenges, there are also some fun musical challenges. We selected three that can be perfectly implemented in the classroom or as home learning.

TikTok lesson idea - Music - Challenges

IV. Rhythm exercises

There are a number of teachers who create their own TikTok videos to teach students basic concepts of music. Rhythm, for example, as in the video below by Jen Slaght. Be sure to check out her account for even more inspiration, she’ll show you musical games and activities like bucket drumming (from beginners to more advanced learners). The ready-to-use lesson example below is based on a video by Miguel Jaramillo , another music teacher.

TikTok lesson idea - Music - Rhythm

V. Learn to play famous TikTok songs on the piano (or another instrument)

When students learn to play an instrument, they don’t always have to play the classics by Mozart, Beethoven, or Bach. There is nothing wrong with teaching them to play contemporary music as well. In the Quiz Widget below, there are the notes for five popular TikTok songs. Students can listen to the music before learning it themselves. If necessary, they can adjust the tempo.

TikTok lesson idea - Music - Notes

7. TikTok lesson ideas for physical education

Of course physical education teachers will want students to spend less time on devices and move around more. TikTok has a solution for this. Make up a TikTok challenge and ask students to imitate the video as best they can. This is also a great activity for a substitute lesson when absent.

TikTok lesson idea - PE - Challenge

In addition, there are also physical therapists who publish good TikTok videos. Hopefully, they can inspire students to be more active. Be sure to check the quality of the videos, though. There are many workout videos that are less suitable for students.

8. TikTok lesson ideas for technical courses

For technical subjects, relevant instructional videos are more likely to be found on YouTube, but TikTok videos can be inspiring and help give technical subjects the cool image they deserve. The Widget below provides examples that may be useful. The accounts Popularmechanics and Katvoltage also provide good quality content related to (electro)mechanics.

TikTok lesson idea - Technical courses - Examples

9. TikTok lesson ideas for art class

If any museum knows how to reach young audiences through TikTok, it is the Uffizi Gallery in Florence . They have fully understood the language of the platform and create fun content, like the video below where the protagonists of Boticelli’s “Spring” do the “Nails Hair Hips Heels challenge”. You might ask your students to make such a video, to look at a historical work of art from a different perspective.

Other museums with a TikTok account can also provide useful content for your classes:

  • Museum of Neon Art
  • Museum Het Rembrandthuis
  • Rijksmuseum

10. TikTok lesson ideas for Information Technology (IT) lessons

It is surely appropriate for IT teachers to cover the use of TikTok, social media, digital literacy and digital citizenship in class. Teach students how to select appropriate privacy settings, create a secure password, how to pause or delete accounts; how to report inappropriate content and more. Instructional videos for IT classes are more likely to be found on YouTube than on TikTok, but there are a few accounts that share interesting tips:

  • Microsoft 365
  • Ta Tech Tips
  • Excel Friend
  • Hardware Savvy

How to integrate TikTok in BookWidgets

How to integrate TikTok videos in BookWidgets

Integrating a TikTok video lesson using BookWidges provides several advantages over other methods:

  • Students don’t need to go to the TikTok app or website to search for the video. They’ll find it right away, inside the digital lesson or exercise.
  • Easily create exercises related to the video: BookWidgets offers almost 40 different question types: multiple-choice questions, open-ended questions, audio recording, draw or annotating a picture… all possible directly within BookWidgets platform.
  • Easily receive student responses, check them and provide feedback. Many BookWidgets tools provide auto-grading of student work.

Embedding a TikTok video in BookWidgets may take some practice. Follow the steps below to become a BookWidgest embedding pro.

Step 1: Find the video code

To find the video code, first, find the video link. If you are working on a computer, just watch the address bar. If you’re on a smartphone or tablet, hit the share button and send the link to yourself.

The link should look like this:

Those numbers at the end of the URL are the video code. Copy this code.

Step 2: Create an embed link

Type the link and paste the video code at the end. For our example, this would be “ ”

Copy this complete embed link.

Step 3: Use the embed link in BookWidgets

For Split Worksheets and Split Whiteboards

In the Text part, under Text pane type , choose web embed . Under Link type select the option I have a URL . Then paste the embed link in the URL field. Click on Preview in the upper right corner to verufy that the video appears correctly.

As TikTok videos are always vertical, you might want to make the Text part a bit smaller. To do so, go back to the widget editor and click on Design . Under Split style , change the Initial % text pane (e.g. 30%)

TikTok lesson idea - Emebed TikTok video in BookWidgets

For quizzes and worksheets

Add a Text question . Add a title and text in the fields provided. Scroll down until you find the Web embed-part . Under Link type select the option I have a URL . Then paste the embed link in the URL field.

As TikTok videos are always vertical, change the width and height. A width-height ratio of 1:2 works well for TikTok videos (e.g. Width 200 - Height 400). Click on Preview in the upper right corner to check if the video appears correctly.

In its fast rise in popularity, TikTok has been pointed out several times for different areas of concern. When considering using TikTok in class, it is important to be aware of this criticism. It is important to have a balance in this blog post. Below please find a summary of the main concerns as well as tips for responding to these issues.

Like with any social network, I use it with moderation and caution, especially in a school setting. Since TikTok is hugely popular amongst students, the TikTok-related issues and concerns may just be a starting point to initiate a reflection on the use of the platform with them (and colleagues!).

1. TikTok’s privacy and security

Critics opinions of TikTok’s privacy and security range from “ it’s similar to other social media like Facebook, and that’s not a compliment ” to “ it’s just spyware disguised as a social media platform .”

It comes as no surprise that TikTok collects data from its users. Lots of data. Things like your username, phone number, location, IP address, search history, the device you’re using, the content you’re viewing…

The big question is who has access to this data and what can be done with it. TikTok gives the following answer on their website:

“We share your data with third-party service providers who help us to deliver the Platform, such as cloud storage providers. We also share your information with business partners, other companies in the same group as TikTok, content moderation services, measurement providers, advertisers, and analytics providers. Where and when required by law, we will share your information with law enforcement agencies or regulators, and with third parties pursuant to a legally binding court order.”

That’s a vast list, and what’s particularly concerning is that it’s all very broadly interpretable .

In addition to the limited control over what TikTok does with personal data, sharing so much content with other, unknown users is never without its dangers. This privacy issue is, of course, extra sensitive because TikTok a massive amount of young users . Officially users must be 13 years old to create a TikTok account. However, there are ways around this. Statistics show that up to one-third of TikTok subscribers are between 10 and 19 years old.

The platform, meanwhile, is aware of the sensitivity and in early 2021 updated the default privacy settings for children. The accounts of children between 13-15 are now private by default. Children under 16 also can no longer make Duet or Stitch videos. Kids aged 16-17 can, but by default only with friends. TikTok has also released several Family Pairing features to let parents link their TikTok account to their children’s to enable some content and privacy settings.

What can be done about these concerns if using TikTok in the classroom lessons?

Taking these privacy and security concerns into account, there are a couple of recommendations:

  • Discuss with colleagues and school administration about the use of social media and TikTok in particular in the classroom.
  • Understand that it is not necessary to create a TikTok account in order to watch a video. Use the BookWidgets tools to integrate fun, engaging TikTok videos into lessons and thus provide students with an assignment that does not require creating an account on the TikTok platform. Integrate a fun TikTok video into BookWidgets and thus give students an assignment about it without the need for an account.
  • Engage students in a discussion about these privacy and security concerns. If students already have a TikTok account, teach them how to make it private and how to best configure other privacy settings , such as turning off personalized ads.
  • ​​ Reflect with students about the content they share on TikTok and other social media platforms.
  • Ask students if they are aware of how many people have access to their personal data and if they want these people to have access to their personal data.
  • Have students reflect on whether they would want this content to be available online 10 years from now.
  • When giving a creative assignment that requires students to create their own video content, do not force them to do so on TikTok . There are other video creation apps available that allow them to create a “TikTok style” video and upload these into your school’s LMS. Some examples include Clips (available by default on iOS devices), Flipgrid, Kinemaster, and Quik. Of course, prior to using any application, check in with parents/ caregivers, and administrators. Look at the privacy policy of these applications as well.

2. Concerns about TikTok’s content and the algorithm

Who sees what content?

There is also a lot of criticism about TikTok’s content. This is a difficult issue because the algorithm shows different content to each individual user. So, it is difficult to estimate what other users are seeing, although a look at the most popular videos can tell a lot. But, the content not seen can be the most frightening. On a platform where anyone can post videos so easily, fake news and conspiracy theories can spread quickly if there is no proper moderation.

An unrealistic image of society

On social media, everyone is ( almost ) always showing their best side. When growing teens constantly see perfect photos and videos of others, it can subconsciously make them insecure. This is not new, but TikTok can reinforce this phenomenon. When young people only see explicit dance videos with perfect bodies on a daily basis ( because those videos simply score well ), this can give them a very unrealistic image of society .

When TikTok worsens problems

But the opposite can also be true. There are cases of teenagers going through a more difficult period. The algorithm recognizes their mental state and shows videos of other young people testifying that they are having a hard time. This is not necessarily a bad concept, as it may help the viewer to feel less alone with their problems. However, when viewers get into a constant loop of “ depressing ” videos this can worsen the problem. For example, using the TikTok algorithm, there have been instances where teens with eating disorders only receive video recommendations of others counting calories or giving so called “tips” to lose weight.

When content doesn’t fit the picture of TikTok

In addition, TikTok has been criticized many times for deliberately pushing back content from certain groups of people. According to a leaked internal document , moderators would have been asked to suppress content from ugly, overweight, disabled and LGBT creators. In the summer of 2021, there was a strike by black TikTokers who felt that non-black influencers often take over their creative ideas without giving them the credits they deserve. Again, it is unclear to what extent the algorithm does or does not show content from social groups to which viewers do not belong. However, TikTok did not turn a deaf ear to this criticism and created an official BlackTikTok account .

Impact on children’s attention span

Finally, many scientists are concerned about the impact of constant exposure to super-short films on the attention span of growing children. So far, there has been very little scientific research on this topic, but there is no question that today’s young people are growing up with an overabundance of flashy, energetic, and rapidly changing content.

Taking these content related issues into account, there are a couple of recommendations:

  • ​​ Reflect with students on the content they get to see on TikTok and other social media. Ask them to give examples of how social media platforms create a distorted view of society.
  • Ask students how much time they think they spend on TikTok and other social media. Teach them to use a screentime app and after a week, ask how much time they effectively spend on these platforms.
  • Show diversity, equity and inclusion as often as possible in the chosen content for classes. Be critical and include all sectors of society in teaching materials as appropriate for the school or district.
  • Vary the types of content. A fun TikTok video from time to time can add value, but alternate this content with other formats where there is room for a more in-depth analysis of the work. This may include podcasts or other long-reads.
  • Reflect on the use of social media in students’ lives by applying this ready-to-use lesson idea, based on three short films about social media .
  • Teach students to fact-check information , and to distinguish facts from opinions . Below is a video that was published on the official TikTokTips account on this topic.

3. It can be hard to find the right TikTok videos

When I asked some teachers about their experiences of using TikTok in class, one of them answered me “I once used a nice TikTok video that a colleague had shared with me, but when I tried to find videos on my own I found that it was impossible without spending hours on the platform. I found the app far too addictive and deleted it after three days” … and I completely understand her reaction!

being a math teacher and preparing a lesson about the Pythagorean Theorem. It is possible to to to YouTube and utilize the search term “Pythagorean Theorem” and the first results may provide good quality Videos. This is due to the fact that YouTube’s algorithm does its best to show user the most relevant videos based on elements including the number of views, likes and comments as well as the videos previously watched. Using the same search term on TikTok will not necessarily guarantee that the videos first selected are useful. There may even be students videos complaining that they don’t understand the Pythagorean Theorem

Yet, the Pythagorean Theorem is an easy example, which does have some nice videos on TikTok. The process can be frustrating and time consuming in order to find the perfect videos for the content being taught. Remember, many social media applications are designed in a way to keep the user engaged and spend as much time as possible interacting with the application.

What can be done about these concerns when using TikTok in lessons?

Using hashtags is one solution (e.g. #EduTok , #LearnTok , …).

Additionally, looking for accounts that post content related to the course being taught may provide good content. Also, this blog post has some great suggestions.

Y/N's POV:

Y/N's POV:

"Alright." I set my live camera down on my desk, adjusting it so it was steadily standing. "So, Jenna is in the shower and I saw this TikTok where you call yourself ugly in front of your partner to see what they'd do. We're gonna try that today." I smiled at my camera, winking at all the comments that poured in immediately as I pulled Jenna's hoodie off my body.

I heard the shower turn off and a few minutes later Jenna walked out with a towel wrapped around her body. "What're you doing, baby?" Jenna asked mindlessly. The good news was she was out of the frame when she dropped her towel to grab clothes from our closet.

"Live stream." I pointed to the camera as I flip my hair to one side of my shoulder. "Ugh." I groaned, beginning my experiment as I looked at myself in the tiny mirror that sat beside my camera. "I'm so ugly."

Jenna approached me from behind — she wore grey sweatpants and an olive green sweater. Her arms wrapped around my neck, peppering kisses along my neck. "Hm?" She hummed curiously at my statement.

"I'm so ugly. See?" I turn my head towards her and it took everything in me to not smile when she gave me the most loving look ever.

"You're not ugly." She softly whispered, pulling away just enough to cup my jaw. "You're perfect, and there's nothing that could ever make you ugly."

I glanced at my camera, the comments rolling in at Jenna's words. She didn't pay any mind towards the camera, just focusing all her attention on me.

User67: Jenna us a sweetheartttttt

User90: omg y'all are so cute

User35: awww Jenna understood the assignment

User82: WIFE HER UP!

I chuckled to a few of them and it caught Jenna's attention as she turned to read them as well. She turned back to me with a small grin. "Did you call yourself ugly on purpose?"

"I wanted to see what you'd say. I saw a TikTok." I grinned with a nod after kissing her cheek. Jenna giggled and sat in my lap, hooking her arms around my neck as she pecked my cheeks several times over and over, whispered "you're beautiful" in between each kiss.

"Well, in all honesty, I'll always react that way. I just don't get how you don't see your beauty, you're absolutely gorgeous." Jenna smiled and cupped my red cheeks. I groaned slightly and removed my head from my hands to stuff it in her neck, hiding my flustered state.

I heard Jenna chuckle from above me, running her hands through my hair, her legs wrapping around my waist to hug me closer. My arms circled around her waist, my head lifting up to rest on her shoulder. "She's a charmer."

"It just comes naturally." Jenna pretended to braggingly flip her hair back in pride.

I rolled my eyes playfully and leaned up to longingly kiss her lips. "Hm, and I love it."

three tiktok's using "how you spell chauffeur" song

What Is The 'How Do You Spell Chauffeur' Song? TikTok's Viral 'Fancy Pants Rich McGee' Meme Explained

Back in 2020, a screenshot of a funny comment exchange on X started spreading online. The exchange shows one user asking how to spell the word chauffeur, spelling it "showfer." Another user gives him the answer, but instead of thanking him, the user who asked the question writes mockingly, "Ooooo fancy pants rich mcgee over here."

The exchange inspired a few memes and continued to spread in 2023 and 2024. Then, in April 2024, TikToker Chat Music posted a video where a number of funny viral comment exchanges are sung in the style of a country song, including the "Fancy Pants Rich McGee" song. The catchy audio went viral in May.

South Korea bans viral North Korea propaganda video praising Kim Jong Un

the assignment tiktok song

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea ’s media regulator said on Monday it was banning access to a North Korean propaganda music video that it said idolized and glorified leader Kim Jong Un as a “friendly father” and “great leader.”

South Korea’s National Security Act blocks access to the North’s government websites and media to restrict exposure to the efforts by Kim’s autocratic regime to “praise, incite or propagate” its activities.

The two Koreas are still technically at war since the 1950-1953 Korean War ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.

The decision to ban the video was made after intelligence authorities asked for a review on whether it breached the law, Seoul’s Korea Communications Standards Commission said.

“The video is typical content linked to psychological warfare against South Korea, as it was posted on a channel operated to connect with the outside world and mainly focused on unilaterally idolizing and glorifying Kim,” the regulator said in a statement.

The video has become an unlikely social media hit around the world, going viral on short-form video app TikTok and other platforms.

Pyongyang’s state media often displays exaggerated demonstrations of loyalty by citizens toward its leaders to help the latter consolidate power and to craft a personality cult around them.

Titled “Friendly Father,” the clip was unveiled last month by the North’s state television. It shows North Koreans ranging from soldiers to schoolchildren exuberantly belting out such lines as: “Let’s sing, Kim Jong Un the great leader” and “Let’s brag about Kim Jong Un, a friendly father.”

The South’s regulator blocked access to some North Korean propaganda YouTube channels last year on the spy agency’s request.

NBC Chicago

Who is Harrison Butker and why is he at the center of controversy? An explanation

Butker's words have sparked both criticism and praise across the country, by nbc chicago staff and the associated press • published may 17, 2024 • updated on may 18, 2024 at 12:06 pm.

In a single 20-minute speech , Harrison Butker went from being known largely as the kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, to the man behind a controversial graduation address that has drawn both criticism and praise across the country.

But who is Butker, what did he say and why has it sparked such conversation?

Watch NBC Chicago local news and weather for free whenever and wherever

Here's a breakdown of what happened:

Who is Harrison Butker?

Butker is the 28-year-old kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 2017 seventh-round pick out of Georgia Tech has become one of the NFL’s best kickers, breaking the Chiefs’ franchise record with a 62-yard field goal in 2022. Butker helped them win their first Super Bowl in 50 years in 2020, added a second Lombardi Trophy in 2023, and he kicked the field goal that forced overtime in a Super Bowl win over San Francisco in February.

He is also a conservative Catholic and has shared some of his religious beliefs on social media in the past.

What did harrison butker say.

Butker appeared as the commencement speaker last week at  Benedictine College , a private Catholic liberal arts school in Kansas, and said most of the women receiving degrees were probably more excited about getting married and having children.

Feeling out of the loop? We'll catch you up on the Chicago news you need to know. Sign up for the weekly Chicago Catch-Up newsletter here.

Butker also said some Catholic leaders were “pushing dangerous gender ideologies onto the youth of America" and assailed  Pride month , a particularly important time for the LGBTQ+ rights movement, and President Joe Biden’s stance on abortion.

“I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolical lies told to you,” Butker said.

“Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world. I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say that her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother,” he said.

Butker said that his wife embraced “one of the most important titles of all. Homemaker.“

He referred to a “deadly sin sort of pride that has a month dedicated to it” in an oblique reference to Pride Month and took aim at Biden's policies, including his condemnation of the  Supreme Court's reversal  of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and advocacy for freedom of choice — a key campaign issue in the 2024 presidential race.

Butker also tackled Biden's response to COVID-19, which has killed nearly 1.2 million people in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“While COVID might have played a large role throughout your formative years, it is not unique,” he said. “Bad policies and poor leadership have negatively impacted major life issues. Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as growing support for degenerate cultural values and media all stem from pervasiveness of disorder.”

At one point Butker used a quote from Taylor Swift, who is dating his teammate Travis Kelce.

"As my teammate's girlfriend says, 'familiarity breeds contempt,' " Butker said.

The line is part of Swift's song "Bejeweled ."

What was the response from graduates?

Video of the commencement shows virtually all the graduates and spectators rising to a standing ovation, but student interviews showed a more mixed reaction.

ValerieAnne Volpe, 20, who graduated with an art degree, lauded Butker for saying things that “people are scared to say.”

“You can just hear that he loves his wife. You can hear that he loves his family,” she said.

Elle Wilbers, 22, who is heading to medical school, said she was shocked by Butker’s criticism of priests and bishops and his reference to the LGBTQ+ community, one that she described as “horrible.”

“We should have compassion for the people who have been told all their life that the person they love is like, it’s not OK to love that person,” Wilbers said.

Kassidy Neuner, 22, who will spend a gap year teaching before going to law school, said being a stay-at-home parent is “a wonderful decision.”

“And it’s also not for everybody,” Neuner added, saying, "I think that he should have addressed more that it’s not always an option. And, if it is your option in life, that’s amazing for you. But there’s also the option to be a mother and a career woman.”

The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica, one of the founding sponsors of Benedictine College, issued a statement Thursday criticizing Butker’s speech, contending it did not properly represent the college's values.

“Instead of promoting unity in our church, our nation, and the world, his comments seem to have fostered division,” the statement said.

“One of our concerns was the assertion that being a homemaker is the highest calling for a woman,” it added. “We sisters have dedicated our lives to God and God’s people, including the many women whom we have taught. ... These women have made a tremendous difference in the world in their roles as wives and mothers and through their God-given gifts in leadership, scholarship, and their careers.”

What about the NFL?

The NFL is distancing itself from Butker .

"Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity,” Jonathan Beane, NFL senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer, said in a statement released Thursday. “His views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger.”

The Chiefs declined to comment on Butker's commencement address.

But the wife of Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, Tavia Hunt, wrote a lengthy Instagram post addressing some of Butker's remarks.

"I’ve always encouraged my daughters to be highly educated and chase their dreams. I want them to know that they can do whatever they want (that honors God). But I also want them to know that I believe finding a spouse who loves and honors you as or before himself and raising a family together is one of the greatest blessings this world has to offer. Studies show that committed, married couples with children are the happiest demographic, and this has been my experience as well," she wrote. "*Affirming motherhood and praising your wife, as well as highlighting the sacrifice and dedication it takes to be a mother, is not bigoted. It is empowering to acknowledge that a woman’s hard work in raising children is not in vain.* Countless highly educated women devote their lives to nurturing and guiding their children. Someone disagreeing with you doesn’t make them hateful; it simply means they have a different opinion. Let’s celebrate families, motherhood and fatherhood. Our society desperately needs dedicated men and women to raise up and train the next generation in the way they should go."

She also added, "I also caution against taking things out of context. Sound bites overlaid with hateful comments are not what we want to model for our children or others. We need more dialogue (and VALUES, IMO) in this country and less hate."

Meanwhile, the Chargers took aim at Butker in their viral schedule release video.

During the end credits, the video showed Butker cooking and cleaning.

What is Benedictine College?

The fast-growing college is part of a constellation of conservative Catholic colleges that tout their adherence to church teachings and practice — part of a larger  conservative movement  in parts of the U.S. Catholic Church.

The college is located in in Atchison, Kansas, about 60 miles north of Kansas City, and traces its roots to 1858. It has an enrollment of about 2,200.

Its “mission as a Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts, residential college is the education of men and women within a community of faith and scholarship,” according to its website.

But its also home to more traditional expressions of Catholicism, such as the Latin Mass, all-night prayer vigils and a strict code of conduct. Its mission statement further cites its commitment to "those specific matters of faith of the Roman Catholic tradition, as revealed in the person of Jesus Christ and handed down in the teachings of the Church.”

The school gets a high ranking from the Cardinal Newman Society, a group that touts nearly two-dozen conservative colleges that exhibit what it calls “faithful Catholic education." That includes upholding church teachings and Catholic identity while providing ample Masses and other devotional activities in shaping their students.

The society seeks to differentiate schools that “refuse to compromise their Catholic mission” from those that have become “battlegrounds for today’s culture wars.” Others praised by the society include Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., Ave Maria University in Florida and Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio.

The society's ranking says Benedictine benefits from having monks in residence, multiple Masses and prayer groups, spiritually focused organizations and theology programs with professors with a “mandatum" of approval from the local bishop.

Benedictine's enrollment has doubled in the past 20 years. Some 85% of its students are Catholic, according to the Cardinal Newman Society.

Annual tuition for full-time undergraduates is $35,350, but Benedictine says 100% of its students receive some form of financial aid.

Benedictine’s sports teams, called the Ravens, compete in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Its athletics department says it is committed to ”setting the highest standards for academic success, athletic competition, ethical behavior, fiscal responsibility, and spiritual development.”

What has the response been elsewhere?

The TODAY show's Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager slammed the speech with a fiery response.

"Well, I'm where I am today because I have a husband who leans into  his  vocation, which is being an equal partner. And I tell him that all the time," Hager said.

"Don't speak for us," Kotb added. "Stop speaking for women out there."

Hager noted that those who stay home with families are "amazing," but said "let's not compare one to the other."

"There are lots of women who actually would like to stay at home, but because they need to earn money, they don't even have that privilege to do it," Kotb added.

NBC News Correspondent Maria Shriver also weighed in, saying "We all have the right to voice our opinions, but let us strive to do so with dignity and respect."

A petition demanding the Chiefs dismiss Butker from the team has garnered more than 180,000 signatures.

Meanwhile, as of Friday, Butker's jersey was listed among the top sellers on the NFL shop's website and was named the most popular jersey for Kansas city Chiefs players, besting even popular stars like Patricks Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Commenters have taken to Butker's social media accounts to share their reactions, with responses ranging from both support to criticism.

"As a woman who graduated valedictorian from high school, finished my four year degree in three years (double majored) and tacked on a Master’s during the fourth year, who now owns a business (a school, nonetheless) and is absolutely the epitome of a confident woman…..THANK YOU for your words," one commenter wrote. "My greatest joy in life is found in my family. My husband and my children are the most profound gift and the most beautiful responsibility I have ever been given. Serving the people I love in our home is a joy. I’m not chained there; I choose there because I CHOOSE them. There is no greater purpose. And AS a woman, I will never allow anyone to insinuate that somehow devalues me as a female."

"I am the breadwinner for my family of six. I Iove my job. Harrison, please tell me where I went wrong so I can repent and start cooking and cleaning," another user said.

"I feel bad for those poor women who looked forward to their graduation and had you inflicted on them. You misunderstood the assignment of a graduation speech. It’s not your own personal platform to do a manifesto," one commenter wrote.

‘It’s the Most Important Song I’ll Ever Sing’: Celine Dion on Health, Happiness, and Her Powerful New Documentary

By Liam Hess

At some point in 2008, while on the road with her Taking Chances world tour—one of the highest-grossing shows of that decade— Celine Dion remembers feeling something wasn’t quite right. “Quite rapidly, I was having difficulty controlling my voice,” Dion tells me over Zoom from her home in Las Vegas, perched on a sofa in a pair of tropical-leaf-print pajamas. “It would go really high, and then it would spasm. So the first thing you do as a singer? Well, you go straight to the ENT.” With no clear answers from her doctors—“they looked at [my vocal cords] from every angle, and they said it was pristine,” she recalls—she just kept pushing through and finished the tour. Then she completed another Vegas residency. Then five more tours. Somewhere along the way, she also began experiencing bouts of muscle stiffness. “I started having a hard time walking. I was holding on to things.”

It wasn’t until 2020, when COVID forced her to slow down, that Dion finally reckoned with the mysterious health concerns that had been a recurring part of her life for more than a decade. “When the pandemic arrived, I said to myself, The universe makes no mistakes, and I will take this time—this opportunity—to search,” says Dion. “After years and years of playing hide-and-seek with myself, with my friends, with my family, with my kids….” She pauses, visibly emotional. “I no longer wanted to be brave. I had tried as long as I could. It was time for me to be smart.”

After undergoing a more intensive round of checks—and a lengthy process of elimination—Dion was diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that causes muscle stiffness and spasms. “It probably sounds very strange to say this to you, but when I was diagnosed, I was happy. I was finally able to move with the wave, not against it.” In December 2022, she decided to share this information with the world through a video posted to Instagram. “I don’t know if you know me well enough to know that I’m an open book,” she says today, breaking into a wide smile. It was the same openhearted spirit that saw her approach her diagnosis with candor and share the news with her fans soon after. “I couldn’t hold it in anymore.”

Less than two years later, Dion is unveiling the trailer for her new documentary, I Am: Celine Dion, which streams globally on Prime Video from June 25. While the film captures the more challenging moments of Dion’s journey over the past few years, it’s also a remarkable portrait of resilience—and a love letter to the fans whose support has provided her with a light at the end of the tunnel.

After being forced to cancel the remaining dates of her Courage world tour back in 2022, Dion channeled her tenacity as a performer into her slow but steady process of rehabilitation, with the hope of being able to return to the stage and connect with her devoted fan base once again. (This past February she made her first public appearance post-diagnosis to present Taylor Swift with the trophy for album of the year at the Grammys.) “I wanted to do it as a documentary because it’s not a quick thing and there is no quick fix to what I’ve gone through,” Dion explains. “It’s not just about vocal exercising and doing Pilates. It’s rehabilitation physically and vocally, emotionally and spiritually—the whole shebang. And I want this story to be told in a classy way. I respect my fans and myself enough for them to know the full truth.”

In order to tell that truth, Dion knew that she would need to find the right storytelling partner. Having already begun conversations with a handful of directors at the beginning of 2022 to explore making a film about this phase of her life, Dion was connected with the Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Irene Taylor, and the pair hit it off immediately. “I wanted to find someone I could vibrate with as a partner on the project,” Dion says. “I wasn’t looking for someone who would dramatize my life or reinvent what I was going through. Or someone who would always be saying, ‘Can we ask you that? Can we go there?’ When I met Irene, I knew right away that she was the person.”

Speaking with Taylor, whose background as a photojournalist has taken her to all four corners of the globe, it’s clear that it was Dion’s unusual ubiquity—and the presence of so many facets to her the general public might not be familiar with—that drew her to the artist as a subject. Besides, there was Dion’s willingness to open up. “At the beginning of knowing Celine, she said to me very clearly, ‘I would like to be the voice of the film,’ which was like music to my ears,” says Taylor. What did Taylor interpret that urge to mean? “I think what she was saying to me was, ‘If you will let me, I will tell the story. Just talk to me. And over time you can piece this together,’” Taylor explains. “If Celine is saying, I will give you myself , why would I want anyone else? The film is about her, you know—and not only was it about her, it was about her during a very specific time in her life where she was pivoting, and not by choice.”

While the documentary is woven through with archival footage of Dion’s rise to fame—and her many decades at the top of her game as a musician and performer—Taylor was eager to make it a portrait of Dion in the here and now. “I think that her dearest fans have a very good sense of how wide-ranging her repertoire is,” Taylor says. “But I think most people don’t know—the general public, me included. The film is about discovering present-day Celine in the context of this 40-year-plus career that brought her to this point.”

She continues, “I didn’t make a film for her fans, but the film is undeniably this love letter, and her fans really are concerned about her right now. They want to know what she’s doing, but they also want to just let her music wash over them. I think—I hope—the film manages to offer both.”

For obvious reasons, the majority of the present-day footage was shot in Dion’s Las Vegas home—a space she’s deliberately kept sacred and which she was only willing to open up to cameras for the first time after establishing a sense of kinship with Taylor. “This is the only place I have that I could suffer, cry, go crazy, be happy, sing, miss a beat—and right now, be vulnerable,” Dion says. “I needed to trust someone so much to be able to show them that. And just by hearing a little bit of Irene’s own story, I was able to do that. I don’t have a lot of friends. Now I consider Irene a friend. Because she understood.”

Part of the reason Dion has kept her home life so closely guarded, she explains, is to protect her children. (Dion has three sons from her marriage to René Angélil, her late husband and manager who died of throat cancer in 2016.) After many decades of intrusion from the tabloid press, Dion knows when—and how—to keep her private life private. “I died already in newspapers many times,” she says with a touch of gallows humor, before noting that the worst thing about the frenzied speculation around her health has been having to explain the headlines to her children. “I have to remind them not to believe everything you read or hear.” Still, Dion says, it’s partly for the sake of her children that she felt compelled to make the documentary. “The film was done with so much respect,” she says. “I did allow Irene to capture things that maybe will be hard for some people to see, but it’s my reality.”

As for Dion’s reality at this exact moment? She’s taking things a day at a time. “It has been a big burden on my shoulders, and a lot of that weight’s gone,” she says of sharing her diagnosis with the world. “Because now I can just focus on reality. That’s wonderful. My happiness came back.” So too does she hope that releasing the documentary will help raise awareness around stiff-person syndrome and encourage those who identify with her symptoms to speak to their doctors. “I hope that the documentary doesn’t frighten people but awakens people to SPS,” she says. “It took 17 years for me—please don’t wait that long.”

Most of all, though, she’s excited to hand the gift of this documentary over to those keeping the light on for her throughout her darkest moments: her fans. “What’s my mission in life? Is my mission to be a singer? Is my mission to be a spokesperson for SPS? Is my mission to be a mother? Or is my mission to be all of the above? I guess today is the beginning of the rest of my life,” says Dion. “It’s a song that I’ve never sung before. But it’s the most important song I’ll ever sing.”

I Am: Celine Dion is presented by Amazon MGM Studios and is a Vermilion Films production in partnership with Sony Music Vision and Sony Music Entertainment Canada. The documentary will be released globally exclusively on Prime Video on June 25.

Why South Korea is banning a song that recently went viral on TikTok

A North Korean propaganda song extolling Kim Jong Un as “a great leader and a friendly parent” has gone viral on TikTok, with mashups and dances racking up millions of views, leading to South Korea banning the tune due to “psychological warfare.”

Seoul’s media regulator on Monday announced it was blocking access to versions of “Friendly Father,” the cheery propaganda hit that became an unlikely social media sensation.

The song was unveiled in April during a nighttime concert to mark the completion of a housing project in the capital Pyongyang, according to North Korean state-run Korean Central News Agency.

Its lyrics praise Kim – the third-generation leader of one of the world’s most autocratic nations – as “a great leader and a friendly parent,” and the music video depicts North Koreans enthusiastically belting out the orchestral song proclaiming that Kim “takes care of us with affection.”

While North Korean propaganda is nothing new, the difference this time is that “Friendly Father” was posted on TikTok – whose owner is Chinese internet giant ByteDance . The song went viral after content creators around the world used it to make their own edits of the music video adding dances and  unserious captions to their own short one-minute clips on the platform, garnering over 2 million views.

But it wasn’t necessarily a propaganda coup for Pyongyang.

“This isn’t Gen Z suddenly declaring allegiance for the regime,” said Alexandra Leonzini, a Cambridge University scholar conducting research on North Korean music.

“They’re laughing at the regime not with the regime.”

Nonetheless, South Korean security officials came down on the parodies. The Korea Communications Standards Commission decided to block 29 videos of the song, following a request from Seoul’s National Intelligence Service. But some versions of the song on YouTube were still accessible to users in South Korea as of Wednesday.

“The video is typical content linked to psychological warfare against South Korea, as it was posted on a channel operated to connect with the outside world and mainly focused on unilaterally idolizing and glorifying Kim,” the regulator said in a statement.

The ban was not a surprise, as the country’s National Security Act blocks access to North Korean government websites and media, restricting exposure to Kim’s autocratic regime and penalizing behaviors promoting its authoritarian and nuclear-armed neighbor.

More than 90% of the reclusive state’s propaganda songs are about idolizing its leader and “Friendly Father” is no different, said Ha Seung-hee, visiting professor of North Korea studies at Dongguk University.

But it does show an improvement in production values, and could signal a new propaganda strategy for the country.

“North Korea’s music videos used to show nature and scenery, like something you’d see at a karaoke with subtitles… but now, it’s changed,” Ha said, adding that “Friendly Father” appears to have used better choreography and video editing.

“North Korea didn’t intend it, but whether it was the algorithm or something else, the video got attention and once Pyongyang learns that it is effective, it can make new content in this method,” Ha said.

North and South Korea have been cut off from each other since the Korean War in 1953 ended with an armistice. The two sides are still technically at war, but both governments have long sought the goal of one day reunifying, and still view each other as hostile.

Millions of North Koreans live in impoverished conditions under totalitarian dictatorship, which has continued for over seven decades spanning three generations of the Kim dynasty. The regime controls everything from food rations, access to education and assignment of jobs, and people are often put into grueling work camps.

Sabrina Carpenter Wore Miu Miu's Next Viral Accessory to SNL

Sabrina Carpenter clearly has her finger on the pulse of what's cool, especially on TikTok, where her hit single "Espresso" is currently the song heard around the world (literally). If you don't believe me, take one look at her outfits from her recent gig on Saturday Night Live , where satin pumps, vintage lingerie, and burgundy were all featured and praised by fans of fashion and Carpenter alike. But there was one outfit that felt especially relevant and on-trend in 2024, and it all centered around a pair of… glasses.

Specifically, Carpenter's look came almost completely from Miu Miu—minus her Hermès crocodile Kelly—and featured a cropped navy-blue polo, a white poplin miniskirt, white socks, and black platform heels as well as a pair of Miu Miu's Miu Regard glasses in tortoiseshell. The shape first debuted at the brand's F/W 23 runway show, immediately stirring up excitement among fashion people. It wasn't until the office siren and geek-chic trends took off on TikTok, though, that the internet began sharing in our joy over the optical masterpieces. Below, see the "Feather" singer's SNL look and compare her styling of the Miu Regard glasses with Miu Miu's from the runway.
