Kate Upton is stepping into her social media royalty era and she has no bigger fan than us. The supermodel, who is best known for landing on the cover of three SI Swimsuit issues (’12, ’13 and ’17) over her six separate years with the magazine, shared a hilarious video about how her TikTok content creation is going.

She duetted a popular user, Mark (@snarkymarky) who often makes satire and parody videos poking fun at teachers an millennials—all in a very lighthearted and endearing way. 

Mark wrote “millennials doing transition videos” on-screen and acted out a get ready with me transition video, and Upton copied on her side of the screen.

The mom of one, who shares her daughter Genevieve with husband and MLB player Justin Verlander, started the clip in a tank top and held a makeup brush in her hand. The two creators sang along to Taylor Swift’s “Bejeweled,” purposely a millisecond behind to demonstrate the millennial pause.

The transition was also intentionally butchered and far too late. Upton changed into a classy outfit including a white top, baggy dark-wash jeans and a black Prada puffer corduroy jacket.

“Best believe I’m still bejeweled / When I walk in the room / I can still make the whole place shimmer,” the 31-year-old sung while twirling and dancing around her bathroom.

“TikTok is hard for millennials ok??,” the Michigan native candidly captioned her Jan. 13 post.

“Omg hi queen,” Mark responded in the comments.
