Macaulay Culkin dances with Lizzo on stage at her LA concert
Macaulay Culkin demonstrates his dancing skills as he joins Lizzo on stage during her sold-out LA concert
He's a beloved child star and she's one of this year's hottest talents.
And unlikely friends Lizzo and Macaulay Culkin truly tickled fans when the Home Alone star, 39, joined the Truth Hurts songstress on stage during her sold out concert and The Palladium in LA on Monday night.
Immortalizing the moment on Instagram, Culkin shared a clip of himself dancing on stage that was captioned: 'When @lizzobeeating asks you to do a silly dance... You get up there and do a silly dance.'
He also shared the moment on Twitter, writing: 'Went to see my friend @lizzo tonight' and letting the video speak for itself.
In the clip Culkin went into a mean sprinkler before Lizzo and dancers mirrored his moves.
The artist - born Melissa Vivianne Jefferson - sent off the star with a big hug, telling the audience: 'Make some noise for Macaulay Culkin everyone!' before he made his exit.
The moment came right ahead of her track Like A Girl, which interestingly name-checks the Ri¢hie Ri¢h star with the lyric: 'I don't really need you, I'm Macaulay Culkin home alone.'
Lizzo is riding high after her track Truth Hurts topped Billboard's Hot 100 for the 7th week in a row.
The song now ties the Iggy Azalea's 2014 song Fancy for the longest chart run for a female-fronted rap song.
Her meteoric rise to fame has not been without its ups and downs.
Lizzo is currently facing accusations she plagiarized some of the chart-topper's most beloved lyrics.
Brothers Justin and Jeremiah Raisens contend that one of the track's most iconic lines- 'I just took a DNA test turns out I'm 100 percent that b***h'- was written by them.
The Truth about "Truth Hurts" On April 11th, 2017, we wrote a song called "Healthy" w/ Lizzo, Jesse St John, and Yves Rothman at our studio. "I just took a DNA test turns out I'm 100% that bitch" was taken from "Healthy" and used in "Truth Hurts". We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of "Healthy" (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in "Truth Hurts". After reaching out to Ricky Reed and Lizzo's team about fixing it, we put the song in dispute in 2017 when it came out. We've tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% each but were shutdown every time. Coming forward publicly to family, friends, artists, and colleagues seems to be the only way at this point in relieving some of our emotional distress caused by this. The last thing we want to do is throw any negativity toward Lizzo's momentum and movement as a cultural figure. If we believe in what she's preaching, believing in ourselves & our own voices is something we thought she'd understand. Shout out to the singer Mina Lioness ( @minalioness ) for tweeting "I just did a DNA test turns out I'm 100% that bitch". A meme of that came up in our writing session & inspired the lyric and melody we wrote together. If Ricky and Lizzo's team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mina for her influence on Healthy. The clip below shows a video & photos from the day we wrote "Healthy" along with the comparisons between the two works. All the Love, Justin & Jeremiah Raisen #lizzo #truthhurts #healthy

They are asking for five percent each for helping create the line, which they claim happened during a songwriting session for a different song with the hitmaker in April 2017.
This is the second time Lizzo's lyrics have been called into question.
She was first accused of plagiarism in February 2018 by British artist Mina Lioness, who originally tweeted the line in February 2017.
Mina called out Lizzo on Twitter last year, saying: 'Everyone believes those were your words, when in fact they were mine. My creativity, my wit and my comedy'.
However, Lizzo replied that she was 'inspired' by a viral meme and had never seen the tweet.
