In Focus: New BLINKs In Your Area—Meet BLACKPINK's New Celebrity Friends From Their Recent US Trip!

 

From a successful North American world tour under way to a history-making Coachella debut, BLACKPINK definitely has a lot of cards up their sleeves in the States. See, the foursome didn't fly to the other side of the world much more sign to a global US record label just for play. They came to slay. Yep, it's true. BLACKPINK is the revolution.

But guess what? History isn't the only thing they made while in the area, but also new friends (and fans) in the form of big league names in Hollywod and the international music scene! Imagine, in just a blink of an eye, new celebrity recruits have been welcomed to the girls' evergrowing fandom. This K-pop super group is just a commanding powerhouse that nobody can resist. Here, meet the A-list stars who secured a spot in the BLINK nation!

Khalid

The power of K-pop is really taking over this American teen-no-more. After BTS, the "Young Dumb Broke" hitmaker got caught up in the moment fanboying over BLACKPINK at Coachella. Isn't it lovely?

Will Smith

We were thrilled when Will surprisingly jumped on the Coachella stage to join his son Jaden's performance, but we're even more hyped when the American actor declared himself and wife Jada as official BLACKPINK fans! This photo right here, this is called happyness.

Jaden Smith

Of course, Jaden won't dare lose to his father. Besides taking a group photo with the girls, he also managed to party with them. That's what a squad is all about!

Paul Klein of LANY

This one we love so bad! The alt-pop band's frontman attended BLACKPINK's concert in Los Angeles and called them "the sweetest girls" he's ever met. Rosé even snapped a solo photo with Paul and, seriously, who's not shipping this?

Billie Eilish

The congratulatory shoutout goes to Jennie as she met the breakout artist and her girl crush Billie at Coachella. We're not hinting you girls should do a collab, but that's exactly what we're saying.

James Corden

BLACKPINK sure had a lot of fun performing at The Late Late Show and joining host James Corden for a Flinch game. We have to say, Jisoo nailed it!

Benny Blanco

This American songwriter also came to witness BLACKPINK live at their In Your Area world tour stop in Los Angeles. In case you don't get it yet, the concert was, indeed, star-studded.

Nina Dobrev

Any BP-Vampire Diaries mutuals here? Spotted in Nina's Instagram story are her newest buddies! What a concept!

Diplo

Sporting literally black and pink, the American DJ posed backstage at Coachella with Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé. Is the outfit planned or a coincidence? Who cares, we only want them to do a song together!

Ariana Grande

They want it, they got it. After hoping and wishing and praying for them to meet, look what we got: an Ari x BLACKPINK photo. We knew Coachella would never be complete without this moment.
