Fans amused, confused by Charlie Puth’s unmade bed on One World: Together at Home live-stream

On Saturday, music stars from around the world participated remotely in Global Citizen and the World Health Organization’s historic live-stream event, “One World: Together at Home,” to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and celebrate healthcare workers and first responders on the frontlines. 

Some performers sounded heavily edited and slickly pre-produced, while others, like Adam Lambert and Sofi Tukker, made the extra effort to conjure a Coachella vibe by decorating their homes with disco lights and tropical plants. But others kept it real — like Kesha, whose pet cat was mewling in the background, or Irish rock band Picture This, who, while not exactly keeping six feet apart, at least conscientiously slathered on hand sanitizer before high-fiving each other.

But no one kept it more real than superstar singer-songwriter Charlie Puth, who didn’t even bother to make his bed or fold his laundry before broadcasting live to millions of viewers.

People tuning in for “One World” were divided on Twitter. Some seemed annoyed by what they perceived as laziness, a lack of respect, or an affront to moms and neat-freaks worldwide.

However, the majority of fans appreciated Puth’s relatability — because let’s face it, how many regular folks actually care about perfectly fitted sheets and fluffed throw pillows when there’s an international health crisis going on? 

Regardless, it seems fans of both sides of the bed debate agreed that Puth’s performance was a “One World” musical highlight. His song choice, the already-poignant Fast & Furious mega-hit “See You Again,” took on new meaning: as a dedication to the friends and family that we are all missing and looking forward to reuniting with once life returns to relatively normal. And Puth himself took all the Twitter flak in stride.

The “One World: Together at Home” global live-stream kicked off at 2 p.m. Eastern, with a prime-time, multi-network television broadcast — curated by Lady Gaga and co-hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert — to follow at 8 p.m. ET. Powered by commitments from supporters and corporate partners in benefit of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, the event benefits local and regional charities that provide food, shelter, and healthcare to those that need help most.
