Imagine being roasted on Twitter by legendary singer Dionne Warwick.

That's what happened to The Weeknd and Chance The Rapper, and their responses were actually quite wholesome.

It all started when Dionne randomly called out Chance for his stage name: "Hi, @chancetherapper. If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this?"

She then added in a separate tweet: "I am now Dionne the Singer."

Caught off guard by the post, Chance admitted that he was "freaking out" that Dionne even knew who he was. "This is amazing!" he wrote, adding: "I will be whatever you wanna call me Ms. Warwick. God bless you."

Things got even better from there when the 79-year-old, who turns 80 in just a few days, asked Chance if they could rap together.

After letting everyone know that Holy by Justin Bieber and Chance The Rapper is one of her favourite songs right now, Dionne set her sights on The Weeknd in another hilarious post.

"The Weeknd is next. Why? It's not even spelled correctly," she said, calling out everyone who has "The" in their name. "I need answers today," she wrote.

Just like Chance, The Weeknd responded with a sweet message, saying that he was honoured to have been roasted by Dionne.

Dionne assured everyone that the posts were "all in good fun" and that she was "just kidding".

The singer shared another wholesome exchange with Taylor Swift, telling her to keep her head high, before letting everyone know that she was off to catch up on some Lucifer.
