Charlie Puth Gives Advice to Disappointed TikToker After He's Rejected from Juilliard

Charlie Puth is sharing some words of encouragement with a disappointed fan.

TikToker Axel Webber recently shared a video revealing that he was rejected from New York City’s Juilliard School.

“As you are already aware, due to our callback process, you are no longer under consideration for admission for Fall 2022,” Axel said as he read his rejection letter out loud.

He then added that he would “have to find a different way to be an actor.”

After catching wind of Axel‘s video, Charlie, 30, shared a video in response, giving Axel some advice.

“Hey friend… I also didn’t get into Juilliard… but things ended up being just fine for me. I cried too,” Charlie started his video response to Axel. “Not only did I not get into Juilliard, but I didn’t get into five of these ‘prestigious’ schools that I wanted to get into that I thought would better my career.”

“While I do think school is great, and I did end up going to Berklee [College of Music], a prestigious conservatory for the arts is not going to be the thing that defines your career as an actor,” Charlie continued. “It certainly wasn’t the only and most important thing that made my career happen.”

Charlie went on to say, “We experience rejection every day of our lives. And as hard as it is to swallow in the moment, it’s the thing that pushes you further creatively. It pushes my music, and it’s going to push your acting as well.

“You, Axel, do not need to worry at all,” Charlie concluded. “I like your videos a lot, there’s something very special about you. And I like your tiny apartment. You’re gonna be OK bro, I promise.”

If you missed it, Billie Eilish recently came to Charlie‘s defense after this musician called him a “f–king loser.”
