Olivia Rodrigo

Reveals How Selena Gomez Helped Her After Branching Out From Disney

She rose to fame on "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.”

Olivia recently opened up to Variety about the impact Selena had on her when she was trying to shed the Disney aura.



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

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

Olivia opted NOT to sign with Disney Music Group’s Hollywood records, unlike Miley, Demi, and Selena, according to Variety.

This unconventional way of transitioning from on-screen talent to musical talent is paving a new path for young Disney stars who want to break into music.

Selena recently revealed that she didn't know what she was doing earlier in her career and that she ‘sold my life away to Disney.’
