“THE TALENT,” Taylor wrote of the rendition on her Instagram Story. “Love it !!! Thank you for a great performance @ olivia.rodrigo @mtv.”
It’s not just the musical talent that Taylor and Olivia have in common. As the world struggled to decipher whether Taylor was referring to her friendship with the then model and best friend Karlie kloss on her always bonus track “it’s time to go” fans were also trying to find out if Olivia’s new single was about her HSMTMTS co-star Joshua Bassett and her potential new romance with Girl meets the world star Sabrina carpenter.
While Olivia and Joshua have never confirmed their romance, some fans seem to believe the “driver’s license” was about their breakup and Joshua’s alleged new relationship with the actress.
On the track, Olivia sings: “And you’re probably with that blonde girl / Who always made me doubt / She’s so much older than me / She’s everything I’m not sure.”
If the actress looks like her idol Taylor, she’ll never publicly name her song names – but that won’t stop fans from speculating!
