Bella Poarch and Valkyrae break the internet with hot Valentine’s Day pics

When Bella Poarch sang: “Baby, I’m the reason why hell’s so hot,” she didn’t lie because she really is—and the fans can attest to that!

On February 14, TikTok star-turned-music artist Bella Poarch teamed up with YouTuber Valkyrae for a Valentine’s Day-themed photoshoot. The duo stunned their fans and broke the internet after showing off their dark sides in a slew of steamy photos.

Poarch shared a snap on Twitter where she and Valkyrae are shown sporting red and black leather lingerie while holding a sword and a dagger, and being entangled in a rope. The ‘Build A B*tch’ singer wrote: “Enter at [yo]ur own risk @Valkyrae.”

Shortly after, Poarch uploaded a series of photos where the pair can be seen stabbing, tearing off, and beheading a teddy bear. Another snap also featured Poarch holding a fake human heart and Valkyrae licking a bloodied dagger.

The duo then switched from being dark and bold to innocent and sweet as they changed to an all-white ensemble where they are surrounded with black roses.

Poarch even created a website containing all the photos from the Valentine’s Day-themed photoshoot, as well as some behind-the-scenes clips and love cards.


Bella Poarch and Valkyrae broke the internet—and Dropbox

After unleashing the photos, several social media stars and fans went wild from Poarch and Valkyrae’s photos.

Twitch streamer and content creator Emma Langevin took to Twitter her reaction, saying: “OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I FELL TO MY KNEES IN THE MIDDLE OF TARGET.”

Another Twitch streamer Leslie Ann Fu, known as Fuslie, said: “My heart stopped when I saw these pics YOU TWO ARE SO HOT.”

Social media personality Bretman Rock commented on Instagram and wrote: “I can’t handle these.” While Twitch streamer and gamer BrookeAB praised the two. “WOW YOU TWO LOOK AMAZING,” she said.

Some also expressed that they’re willing to be stepped on by Poarch and Valkyrae.

The photoshoot is too hot to handle that it even broke Dropbox. Poarch shared on Twitter an email from Dropbox, saying that the links she had posted were suspended as it “generated a large amount of traffic.”

This isn’t the first time that Poarch and Valkyrae have been seen together and collaborated. Valkyrae has appeared in two of Poarch’s music videos for ‘Build A B*tch’ and ‘Inferno’. The two have hung out many times before, and just recently, they celebrated Poarch’s birthday along with their friends Melanie Martinez, Bretman Rock, Pokimane, and Aria Saki.
