The internet is losing its collective mind after Andrew Lloyd Webber dropped a “Phantom of the WAPera” remix of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP”.
British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, 72, posted his remix of “WAP” to his TikTok account and captioned it: “Phantom of the WAPera ft. the man himself”.

The Cats creator has left the internet “screaming” and “craving death”, with one Twitter user writing: “As soon as he started playing BABY THE WAY I THREW MY PHONE. Ban TikTok immediately.”
Another wrote: “He should have never had access to the internet to begin with. Who do I need to call?”
idk why but the idea of ALW listening to WAP makes me uncomfortable

A TikTok commenter added: “There are no words to describe how much I didn’t want this on my For You page.”
Weirdly, some on social media realised that the more they listened to “Phantom of the WAPera”, the more it began to grow on them.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Actually, I wanted to know where that beat was going to because it was kind of fire.”

Granting their wish, one TikToker even extended the remix themselves, to which someone responded: “Oh, so it IS a bop!”
“I literally don’t care about TikTok itself at all, but if anyone claims this isn’t pure art then they’re wrong”, said another Twitter user.

The Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion collab that’s given countless women and queers of all genders life, and left many a Republican frothing at the mouth, received an LGBT+ makeover last week.
Created by Los Angeles dancer Nicole Kirkland and beauty influencer Mac Daddyy, the all-gay “WAP” video involves a lot more lace, leather harnesses and six-packs.

The clip premiered Wednesday (August 26) and has already tallied more than 230,000 views. It sees Kirkland, as well as dozens of dancers, glide into the splits and sashay their hips all the while sporting pouty faces, all in a glorious and glamorous tribute to the instantly-iconic music video.
