On May 31, BTS made a monumental trip to the White House to promote diversity and decry anti-Asian hate crimes. After giving their speeches and posing with President Joe Biden, who even held up a finger heart with the group, the boys then spent a night out with Coldplay’s Chris Martin and other Hollywood stars. It’s been several years since BTS formally debuted in the USA, and they frequently make time for their famous friends every time they visit. So who have they met and gotten close to? Chris Martin and Coldplay BTS’ friendship with Coldplay started when the K-pop group reached out to Chris Martin to propose a collaboration. While Martin initially thought that “it won’t ever be able to match” given their different styles, according to NME , he eventually wrote My Universe and flew to South Korea to record the song with BTS in person. The documentary of the recording revealed that they bonded over their shared passion for music. What happens to failed K-pop stars? 4 former idols who changed careers Martin later said to Ellen DeGeneres, “We love them. For something that could have seemed so artificial, it turned out to be one of the most real feelings. We genuinely love those people.” Most recently, they spent an evening together after BTS’ visit to the White House, per Zoom TV, along with celebrities Dakota Johnson and H.E.R. Fans even noticed that Martin was wearing a set of Jin’s self-designed pyjamas at dinner. Megan Thee Stallion Megan Thee Stallion is another star who became friends with the boys through a collaboration. In 2021, the group released a remix of their hit single Butter featuring the rapper.
