Chappell Roan has been trending on social media for some time after the phrase "your favorite artist's favorite artist" started appearing on the Google search engine. Also known as Google bombing, the phrase pops up when someone tries to search the details of Roan, and Google replies by saying, "Did you mean: your favorite artist's favorite artist?"

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on June 20, 2024, Roan clarified that she was not the mastermind behind the phrase and it was inspired by Sasha Colby. Also known as Sasha Kekauoha, Colby won RuPaul's Drag Race last year and is 39 years old.

Chappell Roan initially used the term while performing at Coachella earlier this year, and during her interview with Jimmy Fallon, she said:

"Sasha Colby said, 'I'm your favorite drag queen's favorite drag queen,' and it just hit me through the heart. And so I was like, 'I hope Sasha Colby one day watches me', and that's why I said it."

The conversation is getting a lot of attention after Roan performed on her song Good Luck, Babe! She was spotted wearing a dress resembling a black swan for her interview and later changed to a white swan-like outfit before going on stage.

Fallon then displayed another photo taken when Chappell Roan appeared at the Governor's Ball. As the audience cheered for Roan, she stated that she felt like she was "right all along." Furthermore, Fallon questioned Roan about the alternate career she would have chosen in her early days, and she replied:

"I was thinking about becoming an esthetician or something. But the other thing I'm really good at is genetics. So, I was, like, either a singer or a genetics person."

Chappell even spoke up on the outfits she selects for her performances and tours, saying that she prefers to appear "pretty and scary." She mentioned that the costumes are mostly taken from drag or horror movies.
