Olivia Rodrigo's Mom Didn't Like 'Drivers License' At First - Find Out Why!

Everyone’s a critic – including Olivia Rodrigo‘s mom!

The 18-year-old superstar revealed during a stream of her debut album Sour that her mother had some constructive criticism about her record-smashing debut single “drivers license.”

“I actually never said this in an interview before, but I was thinking about it the other day, and it’s so funny,” she started to say during Apple Music’s First Listen special live-stream.

“When I played ‘drivers license’ for the first time for my mom, she goes, ‘The bridge is really weird. It’s too much; it doesn’t fit with the rest of the song.’ In hindsight, I’m glad I didn’t take that to heart but, she’s very honest,” she revealed.

“But, I mean, obviously, she’s my mom and would support me in whatever I did, but I just thought that was a funny little anecdote.”

“My mom is the first person I play every song for,” she went on to explain of their relationship.

“And my mom is the best; she is the sweetest woman. She’s from Wisconsin, she’s a third-grade teacher, and she’s the sweetest, purest woman you will ever meet in your whole life. Her favorite music is punk music and metal music and really hard, gritty stuff, so she’s always been the one that has instilled in me that, ‘I don’t care the technicalities if it makes you feel something, then its good music.’ If my mom doesn’t like it, I know it’s not music that makes you feel.”

Fans are tweeting about Olivia Rodrigo‘s album, and they’re bringing up another star – find out why!
