Olivia Rodrigo Dishes On When She Found Out Taylor Swift Commented On 'drivers license'

Olivia Rodrigo is opening up about being the biggest Swiftie!

In a new interview about her debut single “drivers license,” the 17-year-old revealed just when and how she found out that Taylor Swift commented on her song.

“I’ve never met her in person, but I posted a cover of one of her songs off of Lover, ‘Cruel Summer,’ like a weirdo, and I did it on Instagram Live and she found it and she posted it on her story and was like, ‘This is amazing. Thank you so much.’ And I screamed my head off, I was so excited,” Olivia told Apple Music.

“I’m just the biggest Swiftie in the whole world, so I tweeted at her all the time and just post stuff about her just organically because that’s how I’m feeling as a 17-year-old girl,” she continued. “But this time, I was dead asleep and my friend called me on the phone and I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s 6:00 AM, can I call you back in two hours?’ And he’s like, ‘No. Absolutely not. Check your Instagram right now.’ And in the grogginess of my sleep, I checked my phone and she commented on my photo and I just about died… just about died. Literally, I’ve looked up to her as long as I can remember, so it was so sweet of her to do that.”

Olivia also talked about her song and how she wrote it.

“I wrote the bulk of the song literally crying in my living room, and I think that it definitely has that feel to it,” she shared. “I was driving around my neighborhood, actually listening to really sad songs and crying in the car, and I got home and I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll write a song about this, crying in the car.’ So, I just sat down at my piano and plucked out some chords that I liked and it kind of happened that way. But it was really, really natural and organic. Very much me writing in the depth of my emotion. I think that’s really cool.”
