Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

This is not a get off my lawn post but this is the #1 song on the billboard charts and 4.7 million likes on Youtube and maybe the biggest hit of 2021 so far.

Sounds like Billie Eilish and some other singers you heard before.

She's a former Disney Channel star (technically still a Disney Star since she's on the High School Musical the Musical Disney Plus series... and yes that's the name of the series).

I just watched that series, and while it was too heavy on the teen angst, I liked it. The fact that Rodrigo and her co-star wrote some of the songs is impressive.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

Maybe she will be dating Pete Davidson soon


For Olivia Rodrigo, seeing a sketch of her song "Drivers License" on Saturday Night Live was the greatest compliment.

Talking to Radio.com on Tuesday, the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star shared that the SNL sketch was extra special, because her celebrity crush Pete Davidson was in it!

"I was absolutely floored. I was screaming. I think being made fun of and parodied on SNL is the biggest compliment in the whole world so that was so surreal," the 18-year-old said. "I had actually no idea that it was going to be on there."

"Pete Davidson, who's my biggest celebrity crush, was singing it and compared me to Taylor Swift, who's my idol," she added. "It was on my 18th birthday too, so that was crazy."

According to rumors, I'd fear for her safety... nothing about personality or drugs or anything either.

Jeez. Both songs are so angsty. How many teenage girls are crying themselves to sleep to these songs every night.

Then again, this was my teen angst break up song when I was in high school. Not too much different in the great scheme of things.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

I don't see how her music stands out from the other females that make the same type of music.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

I like her, even bought her album, but total flash in the pan. 10 years from now she'll be the answer to a clue on Jeopardy that none of the contestants will get right.

I noticed that practically every song on the record includes the word "fuck", but never in the sexual sense. She likes to be "bold" and "controversial", but still with the training wheels on. And finally, I found it really hard to believe that she's been through so many heartbreaks. No teenage boy in his right mind dumps a hottie like that. If there's been any breakups in her life, she's the one doing the dumping so she can move on to the next hot guy who strikes her fancy.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

Maybe this is her trying to break the Disney mold with using the F word.

She is ok but maybe she might be around and we probably said the same about Billie Eilish and she has not gone away.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

Eilish's continued career has indeed surprised me. I should point out though, that part of the reason I saw her as a one-hit wonder is her avoidance of the spotlight. I still don't think she'll have a long career in music though, at least not at the top of the charts. And I also still think she doesn't even want that career.

Rodrigo still has "flavor of the month" practically written in letters on her tongue though.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

What am I missing here, because I am not getting flash in the pan vibes from her. She is a good looking female singer with several hits under her belt, has done some acting, and did a great job covering a well known song from a beloved singer.

To me, it is a plus that she does not want to go overboard thrusting herself into the spotlight where she might burn bright for a brief period of time but just as likely also quickly burn out.

I suspect she will be around for a while, but I have no crystal ball that can see into the future.

Re: Olivia Rodrigo Drivers License

In a interview she said she listens to My Way by Frank Sinatra and thinks about all the moments in her life and starts crying.

That was a funny story I started cracking up since I might have done that before too
