Olivia Rodrigo Reveals The Advice Selena Gomez Gave To Her

Olivia Rodrigo rocks a colorful crochet cardigan on the cover of the newest issue of Variety.

In her feature, the 18-year-old singer and actress is opening up about her music and her quick rise to fame following the release of “Driver’s License”.

“I definitely talked about my deepest, darkest secrets and insecurities on Sour — which is sort of strange to be like, ‘Here, you guys can have this,’” Olivia mused.

She added, “Anyone who wants to listen to it can listen to it. But it’s really empowering when it comes out, and it’s been really awesome for me to see people resonate with that vulnerability and relate to it.”

Olivia also opened up about the advice she received from not only Taylor Swift, but Selena Gomez as well.

“It’s so nice to be welcomed into the music industry and so great to be supportive of other women,” Olivia says. “[Taylor] wrote me a letter a while ago, and she wrote something about how you make your own luck in the world, and how you treat other people always comes back to you.”

She also opened up about the advice Selena gave her, too.

“I met Selena, and she was so kind,” she says. “She talked to me a lot about prioritizing mental health, which I think is really important in this industry.”

Olivia added, “All of us were in the limelight very young. … That can be taxing on your psyche and can bring about all these weird issues.”

If you didn’t see, Taylor is actually credited on Olivia‘s album.
