BLACKPINK‘s Rosé recently sat down with Elle Korea for a quick little interview filled with the cutest questions.
During her interview, Rosé read a question that mentioned the guitar she received from none other than singer John Mayer! John Mayer gifted Rosé after viewing her amazing cover of his hit song “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” during her appearance on Sea of Hope.
Before sending the beautiful pink guitar, John Mayer took to his Instagram to praise Rosé and performance.
While the guitar was a beautiful surprise, Rosé shared she actually thought something serious had happened but it was simply her staff trying to surprise her with Mayer’s gift.
When I received this, somebody from my company, they kind of surprised me with it. They were like, ‘We have something to give you, like it’s really important.’ ‘Yeah…? What’s up? (Rosé ).’ I thought it was something very serious.
Upon finding out it was actually a great surprise, Rosé shared she was shocked and, of course, ecstatic that he posted her cover.
She delivered it to me and she was like, ‘John really wanted to send this to you.’ I was like ‘OMG’ I couldn’t believe it. I was very grateful that He reposted my cover of ‘Slow Dancing In A Burning Room’ and he said very nice words about it. He seems like the sweetest person ever. I’m going to treasure it for life.
Rosé also couldn’t keep in her excitement over the guitar’s color. As many BLINKs know, pink is Rosé’s favorite color and the guitar was, of course, “The prettiest pink guitar!!”
Moreover, Rosé adorably bragged that all her friends were jealous of the attention and present she received from her icon.
I feel very excited that one of my first few Stratocasters would be one gifted by John Mayer!! All my friends were so jealous. They were like, ‘Are you kidding me? He’s like the legend of our generation!’ They were like freaking out. So I’m very very thankful.
