Imagine getting personal advice from Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. For Olivia Rodrigo, she doesn’t have to imagine!
The “Drivers License” singer spoke with Variety about her musical journey, and admitted to being a Taylor Swift “fangirl for life.” Don’t worry, Liv, us too.
Turns out the feeling is mutual, because T-Swift sent Olivia a letter, complete with some advice about the cruel world that is the music business. “I don’t want to divulge too much because it’s really sweet and personal,” Rodrigo told Billboard, “but she talks a lot about how, I think, you make your own luck in the world.” Truth.
Taylor’s not the only artist who welcomed the “Deja Vu” star into the industry: Selena Gomez also doled out some wisdom. “She talked to me a lot about prioritizing mental health, which I think is really important in this industry,” said Olivia. She added, “All of us were in the limelight very young… That can be taxing on your psyche and can bring about all these weird issues.”
So, if you were looking for some advice from two of music’s most decorated women, there you have it! Looks like O-Rod has some new perspectives, and hopefully it’ll help her navigate all the stardom that her music is creating. Best of luck, girl!
