NYLON Last year. “My music is definitely separated from my acting in a way that I’ve always dreamed of. When ‘Driver’s License’ came out, everyone was like, ‘I have no idea who that Olivia Rodrigo girl is. , but I love this song.’ It’s the absolute dream for me, because I’ve always wanted to be taken seriously as a songwriter.
