During a recent interview teen Vogue Contributor P. Claire Dodgson, the ‘Good 4 U’ singer, opened up about rosé and what it was like to “hang out” with the K-pop star at the 2021 Met Gala. Although the singer’s tales did not make it into The last teen Vogue Speciality, Dodgson later posted an excerpt of the interview transcript on his Twitter account.
Rodrigo said she was “overjoyed” to sit down with Rosé while attending the 2021 Met Gala. “I was so nervous, and when I sat down it was like, ‘Oh my god, I have a friend here,'” she said.
“She’s absolutely the best, couldn’t sing her praises enough. She’s so talented,” Rodrigo said, and also noted that the two hung out “before the 2021 Met Gala.” She really is the sweetest angel “

Earlier this year, while Rosé was in Los Angeles to work on a musical with Blackpink’s partner Jenny, the Korean-Australian K-pop idol was spotted having dinner with Rodrigo. The two pop stars were accompanied by director Petra Collins and stylist Devon Carlson.
Elsewhere in the interview, Rodrigo also talked about Britney Spears’ highly publicized legal battle to remove her stereotypes. “I’m very excited to have him waive my case,” she said. “I just hope she gets all the justice she deserves and lives the best life she possibly can.”
Rosé, as well as former 2NE1 rapper CL, recently attended the 2021 Met Gala, making them the first two female K-pop stars to do so. Rosé arrived at the gala as Saint Laurent’s global ambassador and was seen alongside the brand’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello.
