Lewis Capaldi Has A TikTok Account And It Doesn't Disappoint
| Last updated
If ever there was a pop star who truly captured the zeitgeist of his generation, then Lewis Capaldi is that pop star.
For those of you who have become a bit jaded by social media, the Scottish entertainer has been a shot of pure viral content. Straight into the vein. Regularly sharing videos and pictures, largely poking fun at himself, he's become something of a cultural phenomenon.
But if you are one of the millions who has seen all of his Instagram stories, read all his tweets and are up-to-date with all his YouTube clips, then we have good news for you - the Someone You Loved singer now has another platform for you to enjoy. TikTok.
TikTok is an app for posting short videos of lip syncing and comedy skits. Fans have been sharing clips from the singer's profile and it's pretty brilliant.

Posting a recording to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Nah @LewisCapaldi has got TikTok and am pishin. Too funny."
And they're not the only one in stitches after watching the 21-year-old's vids, with another fan calling him the 'funniest person ever'.
"The gift that keeps on giving," wrote a third.
Another said: "This guys is a f***ing legend. Keeps me listening to his songs... but thinking 'top lad, top craic'."

This is, of course, not the first time the Scottish singer has made a splash online.
Earlier this month he jumped on the FaceApp craze and really outdid himself. Using the app to make himself look older, it became clear he bears an uncanny resemblance to none other than 77-year-old music legend and former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney.
Posting the photo on Twitter, he wrote: "I look like Paul McCartney if he was really ill."
There is definitely a likeness between the two - there's no denying that.
Now, not everyone is a fan of the cheeky crooner. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you will have seen his online beef with Oasis legend Noel Gallagher.
But whereas some might be offended at being likened to Chewbacca, Capaldi's response to the criticism was to change his Twitter handle to Chewis Capaldi.
About a month ago, in an interview, Noel questioned who 'idiot' Lewis Capaldi was, while discussing the 'f***ing w***' state of music.
Since then, Capaldi has ridden the wave incessantly: posting numerous videos on social media, taking to the stage at Glastonbury donning a parka and Noel Gallagher t-shirt, and partaking in 'Don't Look Back In Anger' singalongs with fans.
However, Noel broke his silence recently in an interview with Variety, in which he said: "F***ing Chewbacca should enjoy his 15 minutes."
And to be fair to the lad, it looks like he is.
