Olivia Rodrigo didn't hold back in her latest interview! Here's the lowdown on everything the songstress had to say, from talking about her newfound fame to how her love-life inspires her music...
Olivia Rodrigo’s star shows no signs of dimming!
The 18-year-old pop powerhouse seems to climb to new heights every week and now we have a little more insight into Olivia’s envy-inducing world.
From that Courtney Love drama to the young star moving out – here are the main takeaways from the star's most recent interview!
Olivia sat down with GQ for a tell-all interview as she donned the cover of their August edition.
She got candid about all aspects of her new life as she's thrown into superstardom!
In April, Olivia spoke in an interview about how Cardi’s music empowers her, the rapper caught wind of the flattering comments and she couldn’t help but tweet out in support of the rising star.
In response to Olivia saying that Cardi’s work gives her the courage to be honest in her music, the rapper wrote: “This is so sweet. You doing sooo good for your age. Don’t let no toxic s*** get to you and don’t let nobody restrict your voice.”
The starlet told GQ what the special moment meant to her: "I honestly bawled. I literally saw it and cried. I was like, ‘Thanks, Cardi. I'm not going to listen to bulls***'."
She even hung up a printout of the tweet in her new apartment – who can blame her, that’s all the décor you need!
This is so sweet 🥲 She’s such a cutie.I hope that she’s adjusting to https://t.co/L00a0il6x6’s a weird transition from being a regular girl to a mega superstar .Just always remember who you are .💜 https://t.co/Z6IsfLG3EH— iamcardib (@iamcardib) August 4, 2021
Since we mentioned her new apartment... Olivia got real about living on her own for the first time!
We've followed the Disney starlet every step of the way as she leaves adolescence, from getting her driving license to getting her very own flat.
She told the publication: "I love living alone, I also just don't know how to take care of myself, though.
"I don't know what to buy from the grocery store or how to clean up after myself, I realised. It's been a learning experience."
Yet another influential celebrity has spoken out in support of Britney Spears! We love to see it.
The 'deja vu' singer put it simply: "The Britney stuff was just horrific... I think it's just so awful."
Ever since her breakout hit, everyone's been obsessed with the young star's personal life.
A media storm surrounded the pairs romantic history and love triangle after Olivia burst onto the musical scene.
Olivia was quizzed on this, but graceful as ever she set the record straight and stated it wasn’t her story to tell: "I know nothing about it, and it's not my business to speak on it."
The pop prodigy proclaimed that she was “flattered” over the Courtney drama!
There was some slight controversy surrounding the promotional material for Olivia’s Sour Prom – a video special of the singer’s critically-acclaimed debut record.
Courtney Love made comments online, likening the photo to her own album artwork for 'Live Through This' – fans thought there might be some bad blood between the two singers but once again 'Liv quashed the rumours...
She said: "To be honest, I'm just flattered that Courtney Love knows that I exist."
We would be too, Courtney is somewhat of a pop-punk legend!
This talented youngster can do it all – she's a Disney darling as well as a record-obliterating songstress (no big deal)!
But what path does she want to focus on? Olivia revealed that she's pursuing all her creative paths but has a special place in her heart for music.
She told GQ: "I really don't know where my career's going to go… I just think it's about finding projects and writing songs I feel really passionate about."
The 'brutal' songstress was quizzed on the internet overanalysing her personal life and Olivia had a very unfiltered response!
She said: "I try not to look at stuff like that, to be completely honest. I like to think that if there's actually something that I should know about, my team would tell me.
"It was really hard for me to watch people on TikTok and stuff that dissects my 17-year-old love life. That was really weird."
The 18-year-old musician spoke on the issue very maturely, saying: "But again, I think I understood the curiosity. It doesn't affect me; it doesn't matter. It doesn't affect my songwriting and my life."
This gal is wise beyond her years!
