Olivia Rodrigo’s excitement over Taylor Swift getting in touch with her is the most relatable reaction.
“All of these people who I’ve looked up to since I was like 11 years old are reaching out… Taylor obviously commented on my Instagram post and it made a big splash, it was insane.
“I am the biggest Swiftie in the whole world and the fact she did that truly just made my life.”
Olivia also declared her love for Lorde, adding: “India Yelich, who is Lorde’s sister, said ‘me and my sister love your song!’ And I am such a big Lorde fan so that was also surreal.”
The ‘Drivers License’ singer also credited Taylor for inspiring her to write songs, revealing she knew the words to ‘Picture to Burn’ at just four years old.
She recalled even singing the lyrics: ‘Cause I hate that stupid old pickup truck you never let me drive’ in an old home video her mum captured.
And when quizzed on who she’d most love to collaborate with, obviously Olivia answered Tay.
