Rosalìa and Rauw Alejandro were photographed yesterday heading to the Lakers game. I love her outfit. Like not for me…but for her? I mean that’s what I would wear if I were a global pop superstar. That’s a link to a 2022 New Yorker piece that refers to her as both “avant-garde” and “populist”. When you’re making music that’s building upon and deconstructing genre and tradition the way she is – of course a bikini top and an exposed g-string up the hip with a pair of cargos and pointed boots is the way to go to a basketball game.
Rosalìa will be performing at Coachella this coming weekend and the next on both Saturdays. Rauw will probably be there too, right? And might join her on stage? After all, they confirmed their engagement in the video for their song “BESO” which was released just a couple of weeks ago. If you don’t know much about them, just watch it. The visuals here are basically just cut from their own home videos and they’re just so f-cking cute and hot and sweet, how can you not ship them?
Rosalìa and Rauw have been together since at least 2021. They’re around the same age, hovering at 30ish, and if we’re talking about celebrity couples at Coachella, well, there are two much more polarising couples who everyone will be watching for this weekend: Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner and also Timothée Chalamet and Kylie Jenner. Polarising might even be a generous adjective here because… well… I’m not sure I’ve seen any commentary about either one that’s all like, “I love them together!”
Where love is concerned then, the answer in the desert are Rosalìa and Rauw. Let’s obsess about them instead.
