“I don’t really understand what people want me to write about,” she said.

“Do you want me to write a song about income taxes? How am I going to write an emotional song about that?”

“Something I’m really proud of is that this record talks about emotions that are hard to talk about or aren’t really socially acceptable especially for girls: anger, jealousy, spite, sadness, they’re frowned-upon as bitchy and moaning and complaining or whatever. But I think they’re such valid emotions,” she went on to say.

Olivia Rodrigo is set to perform on this high-profile stage.

She also recently revealed that a TikTok user inspired a lyric on her upcoming album. She also compared the upcoming album to a famous album by another singer-songwriter – find out which one!
