Olivia Rodrigo's Clash Interview

Clash Magazine releases the interview they had with Olivia Rodrigo. Not to be confused with this post, when Clash just teased the magazine cover.

Interview Cliff Notes

- About her angsty music: “I'm never the type of person who's like, ‘Oh, it's the girl's fault that this guy did something wrong to me,’” she says. “It's never made sense logically in my head, and I don't subscribe to that mindset.”

- ‘Sour’ allowed her to make space for her lived experience as a biracial, Filipina woman. “I'm very proud of who I am and where I came from now,” she pauses. “But growing up, me and my other more ethnic friends grew up in this world where we thought that being a white girl would be better, and you'd be happier, and people would like you more.” Rodrigo no longer subscribes to that mentality, but she has subtly injected “the insecurity that goes along with growing up in the world and figuring out your placement in society” into her songwriting. “I think race and ethnicity plays a very big role in that, even if it's not super obvious that it does,” she says. “Hopefully young girls who felt the way that I did growing up can relate or find confidence and solace in the music that I write. That would be the coolest thing.”

- Shuts down fan theories that she has a second album coming out called Sweet

- Wants to collab with St. Vincent and Jack White
