Dionne Warwick

Dionne Warwick is a singer, actress, TV host, activist -- and now has added professional tweeter to her list of pursuits.

The 79-year-old legend has gone viral on Twitter over the past few months, often sharing her very honest and very funny thoughts on life, her career and, of course, her fellow musicians. She sometimes gets a reply back (except for Snoop Dogg, who has yet to reveal if he has "received" her tweet), leading to the most heartwarming exchanges.

See below for all the times Twitter Queen Dionne Warwick shouted out musicians.

1. Taylor Swift

"Okay, what about Taylor Swift? I want to tell her I hope that she’s having a good day and keeping her head high," Warwick wrote in early December, searching for Swift's Twitter handle. She soon figured it out, and added, "Hi @taylorswift13. I hope you’re in good spirits and having a wonderful day. Keep your head high!"

A few days later, Swift herself saw the tweet, and sweetly responded, "I just saw that you tweeted me!! I’m a huge fan and I respect you so much, thank you for wishing me well. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, thank you for spreading joy."

To wrap up the wholesome conversation, Warwick wrote back, "Happy holidays, baby. Continue uplifting others with your wonderful spirit."

2. Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper was starstruck to say the least when Warwick pondered, "If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this."

"I am now Dionne the Singer," she followed up.

"Sorry I’m still freaking out that u know who I am," Chance, unable to conceal his joy, wrote back. "This is amazing!"

"I will be whatever you wanna call me Ms Warwick. God bless you," he added, politely.

"Of course I know you. You’re THE rapper. Let’s rap together. I’ll message you," suggested Warwick. Here's to hoping a collab is soon in the works!

3. The Weeknd

After her exchange with Chance, Warwick wasn't done poking fun at artists with "The" in their names. "The Weeknd is next," she joked. "Why? It’s not even spelled correctly?"

"If you have 'The' in your name i’m coming for you," Warwick warned. "I need answers today."

4. Snoop Dogg

Warwick really, really wants to get in touch with Snoop Dogg. "How do send a tweet to @SnoopDogg? Did I do this correctly?" she asked her followers on Dec. 3.

After a 12-hour subsequent Twitter spree, the singer wrapped up for the night, noting that she "will be back to see if @SnoopDogg has received my tweet. Until then, be kind to one another."

Unfortunately, he never got back to her. Answer her, Snoop!

5. Megan Thee Stallion

Dionne Warwick is a total Hot Girl, even if she doesn't want to know what that means. After Megan Thee Stallion received four Grammy nominations, Warwick took to Twitter to congratulate her. "Good things to good people," she wrote.

Fans were surprised at Warwick's interest in Meg's music, and one tweeted, "miss warwick, you’re a hot girl??? what you know about megan?"

"I know that she is a smart young lady with a good heart!" she replied.

"I don’t know what a 'hot girl' is, but women support women in this house! I am happy to see kind people receive recognition," Warwick concluded. "That’s all. (I’m turning 80. Please do not tell me what a 'hot girl' is )."

6. U2

Rumors began to swirl that Warwick was a psychic, though she quickly shut them down with subtle shade at U2's 2014 album Songs of Innocence, which was added to everyone's iTunes library involuntarily.

"Don’t you think I would have warned you all about iTunes making you have that U2 album if I were actually psychic?" she wrote.

7. Bruno Mars

Warwick wants no slander against Bruno Mars. "Did you know that the artist can see the names of the playlists you’re adding their songs to on Spotify?" Warwick wrote back in November.

In response, a user named @RachelRecently shared her playlist titled "Songs that make me irrationally angry," noting that the artists on the list including Mars, Owl City, MAGIC! and Andy Grammer "need to know" that their songs made the cut.

"Please leave Bruno Mars out of this..." Warwick clapped back.
