Olivia Rodrigo for GQ Magazine

Olivia Rodrigo talks to GQ Magazine about her overnight fame, #FreeBritney, the therapy of depressing songs and goes undercover on the Internet.

"It was really hard for me to watch people on TikTok and stuff that dissects my 17-year-old love life. That was really weird. But again, I think I understood the curiosity. It doesn't affect me; it doesn't matter. It doesn't affect my songwriting and my life."

Olivia credits Lorde's Pure Heroine album as the reason she got into music, "I was like 11 or 12 or something like that. I had the vinyl record of it. I got it from Urban Outfitters. I remember listening to the lyrics and thinking, Oh, my God—I can actually see myself in these lyrics."



She was also asked about Britney Spears' ongoing conservation battle, "I've been following it very closely. I think it's just so awful. I think, as an industry, people are getting better at not taking advantage of and manipulating and bullying young women. But it's still so apparent, and I witness that too."
