Olivia Rodrigo is opening up about her relationships!
The sensational singer-songwriter, who initially gained recognition as a Disney actress, has taken the music world by storm with her soulful voice.
After experiencing a memorable year filled with seven Grammy nominations, a successful album named “Sour,” and a documentary film, the 19-year-old recently reflected on the inspiration behind her achievements.
Olivia Rodrigo Says Female Friends Are Better Than Boyfriends
At the premiere of Rodrigo’s new documentary, “Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Film),” the “Bizaardvark” star got candid about her personal affairs with ET‘s Lauren Zima.
The gorgeous brunette explained that she used sad moments such as a broken heart to create hit songs. However, she couldn’t do this without her amazing female friends.
To anyone struggling with heartbreak, take a page out of the “traitor” singer’s book as the Murrieta native stated that having a cheer squad may be the best cure for pain. In her words:
“I think prioritizing your friends, and especially female friendships for me was super helpful. That kind of love and support is so incredible, and I think more fulfilling than any boyfriend relationship in my life.”
One of these unique female friends was the 7-time Grammy winner Billie Eilish, who reportedly wished she could protect the “good 4 u” singer by keeping her “in a glass box.”
Similarly, Rodrigo had nothing but love for the “Bad Guy” artist as she proudly praised the 20-year-old for being an “incredible” human being. The Grammy nominee said:
“It’s so cool to be able to look up to someone like her. I just really admire how confident she is and how she just marches to the beat of her own drum. And I just think she’s incredible.”

As for Eilish wanting to lock her in a glass box, the “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” alum wasn’t offended; instead, she felt touched by the L.A native’s words.
Perhaps like her famous friend, the “deja vu” songstress may become a 7-time Grammy winner at this year’s prestigious event. Although, having seven nominations as a new artist was an incredible feat.
According to Billboard’s Woman of the Year, attending the award ceremony has been her childhood dream. Not only did she get nominated, but the “happier” singer would also perform at the show.
Naturally, the songwriter couldn’t help but gush about the upcoming event, which she planned on attending with her family. She said:
“I’ve dreamed about the Grammys since I was a little girl. It’s so exciting. And I’m so excited for the day, and I’ve just been a fan of it forever, and so, it’s just gonna be so exciting to go there in the flesh.”
As for her newly released documentary, The Blast previously revealed that the film would give fans an in-depth view of the singer’s debut year, especially the creation of her chart-topping song “Driver’s license.”
“Driving Home 2 U” would also explore the story behind the 19-year-old’s songs, the creative process behind her “Sour” album, and an authentic look at the singer’s personality.
In a statement by Ayo Davis, the President of Disney’s branded television, the documentary was described as a “first-hand experience at how Olivia Rodrigo became one of the biggest music stars of the day.”

Taking to the stage at YouTube’s Theater in Inglewood, California, the humble musician stated that she felt lucky to be recognized for her talents and praised other female artists for their contributions to the music industry.
The AMA winner said, “Every woman here today is working to break down those barriers and change the narrative and support each other. I’m constantly moved by your vulnerability and your creativity and bravery.”
The 19-year-old also assured fans and aspiring female singers that everyone was working hard to make the “world and industry” a better place for them.
Rodrigo’s “Sour” album broke several records, making her the first female artist to have all the songs on an album reach the Billboard Hot 100 charts top 30.
