Even Lizzo Loves Vmin — BTS Members Jimin and V — Enough to Sing About Them
From John Cena to Emma Stone, there are a few celebrity ARMYs who often share their love for members like RM and J-Hope. During one Instagram live, Lizzo revealed her BTS bias, later freestyling about his relationship with another member of this K-pop group.
Here’s what Lizzo said about the singers V and Jimin.
Lizzo is an unapologetic fan of the K-pop group, BTS
Lizzo is a Grammy Award-winning artist known for her hilarious and inspiring social media videos and her surprising flute skills. She’s also shared her love for other musicians, including one of the world’s biggest boy bands — BTS.
During one Instagram live, a fan asked about Lizzo’s relationship with the K-pop group. The artist revealed that she is a BTS fan.
“I do like BTS,” Lizzo said according to Koreaboo. “My sister loves BTS. My sister is an ARMY and she introduced me to BTS. I think they’re extremely talented, it’s mindblowing, and funny when you really get to know everyone’s individual personalities.”
“I love Jimin,” she continued. “I think Jimin is hilarious and like, fierce and beautiful.”
Lizzo freestyled a song about BTS’ Jimin and V
Within BTS there are several close friendships. Jin used to drive the youngest member of the group, Jungkook, to school. RM wrote songs like “Stay” alongside Jungkook. Before they were even in BTS together, Jimin and V attended school together.
When Lizzo was on Twitter freestyling about everything from pizza and wine to sleeping, some ARMYs asked for a mini-song specifically about the K-pop artists.
“I love you, you love me, just like Jimin loves some V,” Lizzo sang while snapping along. “Gooey like that butter, B. Gooey like that butter, B. Say I like you, you like me, BFF like Vmin, G.”
Since posting her freestyle, this Twitter video earned over 55 thousand likes from BTS and Lizzo fans. However, Lizzo wouldn’t be the first artist to sing about this iconic friend duo. In 2020, in conjunction with the album Map of the Soul: 7, V and Jimin released their subunit song “Friends,” offering a glimpse into their close relationship.
