These days, celebrities are getting super creative with how to entertain their friends while everyone is stuck at home. And many have turned to Instagram Live to do so. Whether it's a DJ set, a concert, or in Diddy's case, a celebrity dance-a-thon, social media has become everyone's friend during this trying time. 

So yesterday, for the Easter holiday, the music mogul asked some of his celebrity friends to join him in busting a move, and it was iconic.

In celebration of Easter, Diddy hosted a dance-a-thon on Instagram.

"Here’s a story.... of a man named Diddy. ⁣HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!" he posted with a video of himself and his children. "See you at 3PM EST today for the biggest dance-a-thon in the world!!! Raising money and showing appreciate to our healthcare workers!!!!! TEAMLOVE.COM to donate."

And boy, was it star-studded.

Champagne Papi himself, also known as Drake, made an appearance and, of course, did the Toosie Slide with the hip-hop family. Most notably, when the song played the lyric about dancing like Michael Jackson, Diddy broke into a hilarious pelvic thrust trying his chops at the icon's dance moves. "Spreading nothing but LOVE and POSITIVE VIBRATIONS all day!" Diddy wrote on the clip.

Then, everyone went wild when Jennifer Lopez and her soon-to-be-husband Alex Rodriguez showed up.

It looks like the exes are still cordial, and Rodriguez is even a major fan of Diddy. They all broke it down to some salsa and hip-hop, displaying some serious moves. Now that's what we call a party!

And then queen Lizzo made an appearance.

However, Diddy made a slight pause to the party after the pop star broke into a twerk. And while we were all enjoying it, Diddy said that due to it being a family party, she needed to keep it PG.

But then, model Draya joined the party.


And she twerked as well. However, unlike Lizzo, she wasn't stopped by Diddy for the moves.

It turned into many accusing Diddy of being fatphobic.

"Lizzo started twerking on Diddy’s IG live & Diddy talking bout stop its Easter Sunday but Draya twerks on that same live & there are no issues," someone tweeted. "Y’all can’t even hide yall disdain for fat women & I hate it."

But Diddy once again took to Instagram to clarify.

He said that it wasn't the twerking that he was trying to stop. Instead, he said that her song selection included a song that boasted lots of expletives. 

And while, of course, not everyone was buying it, we're hoping that it's the truth, and Lizzo was given a fair chance. 

What a party that was!
