On August 18, Lizzo went live on Instagram to celebrate ‘Rumors’ when she was talking to fans. She suddenly started on with the topic, ‘K-Pop.’ She said, “K-pop, hmm... Let me tell you all something. I just really love BTS. They're on my fyp (For you Page) so much on TikTok now cause my sister is ARMY. She loves BTS. She introduced me to BTS. So when I would see a BTS video on my fyp, I would send it to her.”
She went on to say how because of TikTok’s algorithm, now the more she shared BTS videos, the more she saw it. She said that constantly seeing the members of BTS she was introduced to their personalities she kept liking them. She continued saying, “Like of course, the music is good. But I get why people, why ARMY is ARMY, cause (of) their individual personalities and style.”

I love Jimin.” Lizzo has been vocal about her love for Jimin and fans can see why. Jimin has an overall lovable personality which is why he draws so many people towards himself.

They'll be like they're BFFs.” Lizzo had once in the past also mentioned that how she became ARMY and how she got introduced to BTS from her sister who is an ARMY.
