Olivia Rodrigo is putting her brutal past few years in the rearview mirror.
The “Drivers License” singer reflected on her lifestyle changes since releasing her debut album Sour in May 2021 and confessing to having some regrets—including ones in her dating life.
“I had such a desire to live and experience things and make mistakes and grow after Sour came out, I kind of felt this pressure to be this girl that I thought everyone expected me to be,” Olivia told The New York Times in an interview published Aug. 24. “And I think because of that pressure, maybe I did things that maybe I shouldn’t have—dated people that I shouldn’t have.”
Without naming names, Olivia, who sparked romance rumors with producer Adam Faze in June 2021 and DJ Zack Bia in April 2022, clarified, “I’m very tame.”
Nonetheless, her sophomore album, Guts, will contain songs “about reckoning with those feelings and coming out of that disillusionment and realizing the core of who I am and what I want to be doing and who I want to be spending my time with.”
