Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter and Joshua Bassett are Disney’s three favorites right now. There is a love triangle and an unexpected musical success.
First, let’s talk about Olivia Rodrigo and the success of her song “drivers license“.
Olivia Rodrigo was born on February 20, 2003, in California. She began to take acting and singing lessons from very young age. I mean, she is one of those kids who was directed to Hollywood when she was little. She first starred in Bizaardvark and then appeared in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The High School Musical was the reason for the drama that made more dramatic. It was rumored that Olivia Rodrigo was dating Joshua Basset. Many sources also wrote that the two were dating for a while.
Let’s look at the interview they gave together, how things started between them.
Joshua Basset and Sabrina Carpenter later started dating. Together they participated in the Black Lives Matter protests and short Tiktok videos. These events affirmed that there were a relationship between them.
Olivia recently released a single called “Driver’s Licence”. The song has garnered a lot of attention lately and got an amazing breakout. It is now number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Even Olivia didn’t realize how famous and loved she was, because everything happened so fast.
Joshua Basset also played a big part in getting this much attention. Olivia wrote the song for him. They also accepted this afterward. The song is about Joshua’s beginning to date someone else and how this situation broke his heart. Someone else here is Sabrina Carpenter. The drama begins here. There is a blonde girl mentioned in the song.
The Meaning Behind the Lyrics
In this song, Oliva talks about the fact that the person Joshua loves is the blonde girl she always suspected. Sabrina Carpenter is the first name that comes to the mind because the affinity between Sabrina and Joshua is known by everyone. The first reason Sabrina is mentioned by this song is the song was originally written for the brunette girl. In other words, Olivia wrote this song for a brunette girl, but in the light of the events, she changed the lyrics in the song. Because of that, the song was directly attributed to Sabrina.
Normally this story might not attract much attention, but the song became very popular. When so many people listened to this song and liked it, the story behind the song became interesting.
Maybe we can call it PR, maybe we don’t believe it was a coincidence, but before the same month ended, other people in this story also released new songs.
There are details in Joshua’s new song about someone who lies to people and deceives himself. At first, everyone said it might be about Olivia, but Joshua explained that this song is neither about Olivia nor any other ex-love.
I wrote ‘Lie, Lie, Lie’ after I found out a friend had been lying about me behind my back for a long time,” the 20-year-old Disney star wrote via his Instagram Stories ahead of the song’s Thursday, January 14, release. “It always sucks to hear that someone you thought you could trust would throw you under the bus when it benefits them. It happens to all of us, and I think all you can do is seek out people that build you up rather than tear you down
Then Sabrina Carpenter released a song. This song has an explicit reference to Olivia’s song. “Maybe blonde was the only rhyme” says Sabrina in the song. The content of this newly released song implies that the issue between this trio is different than what is actually described.
Sabrina made a new statement on all these events on her instagram.
thank you to everyone who has listened to skin 🤍 especially those who have opened their minds to lyrically what i was trying to get across
i wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it.
i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. so i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope, write something that i wish i could have told myself in the past.
people can only get to you if you give them the power to. and a lot of people were trying to get to me.
the song isn’t calling out one single person. some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I’ve had this past year..
it also shows that many things have actually gotten under my skin.. and I’m still learning to not give other people so much power over my feelings. I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing.
i don’t want this to become an endless cycle so please don’t take this as an opportunity to send more hate anyone’s way.
lots of love to u all.
thanks for letting me grow.
Not only Sabrina but Olivia made a similar statement. Unlike the story told in the song, she tried to convey the message that this issue should be left behind by telling people how much he touched and how much people liked the song to focus on.
So they both made songs about each other and argued that everything is for art, as if there was nothing negative between them
Still, there are those who believe that Olivia is referring to Sabrina through stories. Some call this story commercial work, and there are no few. Because all three of them came out of Disney and all three of them sing at the same time. Creating the perception that there was a story behind for the songs to hold was something they had done before.
