Sabrina Carpenter Was Asked About Using the Word 'Blonde' in Her Song 'Skin'

Sabrina Carpenter is speaking out about her song-writing process for her new single “Skin.”

In case you missed it, Sabrina recently dropped a new song which fans have theorized is a response to Olivia Rodrigo‘s single “Driver’s License.” Olivia‘s song supposedly details her relationship with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bennett, who Sabrina is currently dating.

In “Driver’s License,” Olivia mentions a blonde girl who makes her doubt the relationship. Fans have interpreted Sabrina‘s lyrics, “Maybe then we could pretend / There’s no gravity in the words we write / Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe ‘blonde’ was the only rhyme,” as a response to Olivia‘s.

In an interview with on Wednesday (February 3), Sabrina was asked about her inclusion of the “blonde” line and how she felt people would interpret it.

“At the end of the day, the more I dance around the subject, the less people kind of understand where I’m coming from,” Sabrina explained. “Not that the goal is to get them to understand, ‘cause I don’t think at the end of the day you’re ever going to accomplish that. But the more honest I could be in that moment, and that fact is, exactly what I said, it wasn’t a call out to one person. That situation is a situation, and plenty of other things have happened in this past year alone in my life that I was like, ‘it’s getting to be a lot,’ and I need to compile these thoughts into one place, and into one message that I can kind of come full circle with and constantly remind myself that people can only get to you if you allow them to.”

Sabrina addressed speculation that “Skin” was a diss-track about Olivia in an Instagram post after its release.
