Lizzo says J-Hope of BTS is ‘a great texter’

On April 28, Audacy’s Kevan Kenney shared a new interview with Lizzo. In the interview, Lizzo discussed her friendship with Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook of BTS.

“You guys are buddies, right?” Kenney asked Lizzo.

She replied, “Yeah, I got J-Hope’s number, so we be texting. Yeah, me and Hobi.”

Kenney then asked Lizzo what J-Hope is like as a “texter.”

“He’s a great texter. Expressive,” Lizzo answered.

When Kenney asked if J-Hope ever left her “on read,” Lizzo affirmed that the BTS rapper would never do that.

“He does not leave you on read,” Lizzo said. “And if it’s been a while since he’s texted, he’s like, ‘I’m so sorry,’ you know, like he apologizes for how long it’s taken.”

What Lizzo thinks about BTS

Over the years, Lizzo has proclaimed her admiration for BTS multiple times. In 2021, she hung out with J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook at Harry Styles’ concert in Los Angeles.

In her recent interview with Audacy’s Kenney, Lizzo once again shared her love for the Korean septet.

“Good people. Like, really good energy. I think that’s why I’ve always gravitated towards BTS because they remind me of myself where it’s like self-love, and this positive energy, and the way that they love their fans,” Lizzo said.

She continued, “I feel the same way, and they genuinely have just like a pure, positive energy all the time.”
