Olivia Rodrigo Reacts To Fan Theories That 'drivers license' Is About Joshua Bassett & Sabrina Carpenter

Olivia Rodrigo is addressing some rumors about who her hit song “drivers license” is about!

Many fans believe the track is about her co-star Joshua Bassett and Sabrina Carpenter, who are rumored to be dating.

In a new interview with Billboard, the 17-year-old singer reacted to the rumors and the fan theories.

“I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song,” she said. “It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important.”

“To see it do really well — to have this really painful moment in my life, and turn it into something beautiful that can maybe help people through a tough time that they’re having, like I was having a tough time — it’s just so empowering,” Olivia added. “I feel grateful that I got to do that.”
