G Flip expressed their joy over Taylor Swift's acknowledgement of their cover of her hit song.

The Australian singer-songwriter who identifies using they/them pronouns, performed the cover for Swift's hit song Cruel Summer.

As per PEOPLE report, during an interview at the G’Day USA Gala in Los Angeles, G Flip shared the unexpected interaction, saying, “She just liked it. I know everyone's asking me so many questions. I'm like, we've never met, we've never chatted. She was just lovely enough to obviously see my cover come up and just gave it a double tap.”

Expressing disbelief at the approval from the global pop icon, G Flip added, “I can't believe that happened. She's such an icon and just the greatest musician of all time and greatest songwriter, so I'm very, very fortunate, and I love that song. I love 'Cruel Summer' — it’s one of my favorite songs, and it's just cool that she even gave it a watch.”

The cover featured G Flip's impressive singing and drumming skills, accompanied by violins and other string instruments.

G Flip had previously explained changing the lyrics' pronouns to reflect their identity as a gay person.

In the cover, they substituted 'bad boy' with 'bad girl' to align with their own experiences and perspective.

The original lyrics of the song were, “Bad, bad boy, shiny toy with a price, you know that I bought it,” and the musician changed it to, “Bad, bad girl shiny pearl with a price, you know that I bought it.”
