The Wednesday actress, 20, said she would kick anyone out of her house if they dared to play the former Byron Bay busker’s global hit Dance Monkey.

During an interview with Netflix’s Cookie Jar she was asked the question: ‘What song is on your ‘Do Not Play’ list?’

Disney star Jenna Ortega has slammed Tones and I and said she will ‘kick anyone out of her house’ if they play her iconic hit song Dance Monkey 

Jenna answered: ‘I’m not big on pop. A couple years ago, there was a song out called Dance Monkey.’

‘If anyone ever played that in my house, they’re instantly being kicked out.’

Tones and I, real name Toni Watson, has revealed she despises the song herself during an interview with Nova FM’s Smallzy’s Surgery in March. 

‘I loathe that song a lot of the time,’ she said of her breakthrough hit. 

‘I don’t want to write another song like it… and a lot of the time I don’t want to sing it,’ she added.  

Tones said she started to find Dance Monkey irritating while working in Los Angeles at the end of last year because it was all her collaborators ever wanted to talk about.

She explained several producers wanted to record similar songs when she was ready to take her career in another direction.

Later in the interview, she did concede Dance Monkey was ‘good for me’, but said she doesn’t want to spend her career ‘chasing that song’.

Before finding fame, Tones lived an itinerant life, sleeping in her van and earning money busking on the streets of Melbourne and Byron Bay.
