Olivia Rodrigo says she ‘doesn’t know’ Sabrina Carpenter amid drama around her hit Drivers License

Olivia Rodrigo is continuing to dominate the charts with her hit debut single Driver’s License, which recently claimed its 7th consecutive week atop the Billboard Hot 100.

But the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star is remaining elusive about the inspiration behind the song, as speculation continues.

She recently pulled a Mariah Carey, as she said she ‘doesn’t know’ Sabrina Carpenter, even though many fans believe Drivers License is about a love triangle between them and her HSMTMTS costar Joshua Bassett.

The 18-year-old told Radio.com: ‘I actually don’t know her at all. I think we’ve met once or twice in passing, but I’ve never had a conversation with her.

‘So, I don’t think I could write a song that was meaningful or emotional about somebody that I don’t know. But I think artists should be able to write about whatever they want to write about.’

She’s recently made headlines with her love life, after dropping Driver’s License in January, supposedly inspired by her love triangle with Bassett, 20, and Carpenter, 21.

Rodrigo’s onscreen romance reportedly made its way offscreen, as she and Bassett were linked last year, before he moved on with Carpenter during the summer.

The Bizaardvark actress sings in the final version: ‘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 insecure about.’ 

Bassett released his own single Lie, Lie, Lie a week after Driver’s License dropped, with Carpenter unleashing her own apparent response track Skin another week later.

Playing coy: Rodrigo has been playing coy about the story behind the song, telling Billboard: 'I totally understand people's curiosity with the specifics of who the song's about and what it's about, but to me, that's really the least important part of the song' (pictured in September, 2019)

She continued: ‘It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important.’
