The lyricist and singer Olivia Rodrigo he recently put his heart up his sleeve and addressed the best advice he received from Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez.
In a conversation with Variety for editing Power of Young Hollywood, which she covers, the singer of “Driver’s License” 18-year-old called herself a “lifelong fanatic” of Swift, 31, and expressed his gratitude for the pop icon’s kindness. Swift even has a non-collaborative composition credit in “Deja Vu” of Rodrigo for his influence.
The singer was honest during her interview with Variety and was quoted as saying, “It’s so nice to be welcomed into the music industry and so good to support other women.” “Taylor Swift she wrote me a letter a while ago, and she wrote something about how you do your own luck in the world, and how you treat other people always comes back to you.”
While “I don’t want to divulge too much because she’s so sweet and personal, but she talks a lot about how, I think, you do your own luck in the world. I don’t know, he said it so eloquently, and when I say it now… it’s not that cool.”
Swift it’s not the only insider trading Hollywood with which Rodrigo has connected, also has a great friendship with Selena Gomez.
“I met Selena and he was very friendly. He talked to me a lot about prioritizing mental health, which I think is really important in this industry. We were all the center of attention from a very young age… That can be exhausting for your psyche and can lead to all these strange problems.”
Olivia Rodrigo he recently spoke precisely of the impact of the music industry on musicians and young musicians, and charged that it prioritizes money over the mental health of artists.
Selena Gomez she has often talked about the way social media affects and fosters hate, and also about the impact being a child star had on her mental health and found a way to link it to her makeup line Rare Beauty.
For the Mental Health Awareness Month in May, her beauty company launched a new education and advocacy campaign focused on providing more mental health services and financial support to schools called Rare Impact Fund.
“I wish I had learned about mental health the same way I learned about other topics growing up“, said Gomez in a statement at the time. “All young people deserve to learn about their mental health at an early age so they are prepared to ask questions, access resources and empower themselves.”
