Among other news related to Olivia Rodrigo, the singer’s life has totally changed since the beginning of the year, when she broke out with the song “Drivers License”. With that, she had to learn to quickly deal with the pros and cons of being a world famous star. And that’s all while #FreeBritney happens, a movement calling for an end to the guardianship of Britney Spears, another Disney daughter, like Olivia.
“The Britney stuff was just horrific, and I’ve been following it closely. I think its just so awful. I think, as a industry, people are getting better at not taking advantage of and manipulating and bullying young women. But it’s still apparent, and I witnessed that too. Not near at the level that Britney has, obviously.”, she commented.
“I’ve definitely seen corporate dollars be prioritized over people’s mental health. That’s always been something that I’ve been very conscious of in my own career, and I’m really lucky I’m surrounded by people who are conscious of that and conscious of my mental health being the most important thing”, she said.
