Olivia Rodrigo spoke about new music and support from fans

Olivia Rodrigo knows that teen heartbreak isn't only for teenagers. The pop artist has built a profession out of turning her personal ups and downs into sing-along anthems that represent the overpowering sensations that can arise during adolescence's final years. However, she frequently discovers that the relatability aspect of her subject matter stretches far beyond the grasp of Gen Z.

In a recent interview with People Magazine, she said,  "I actually think I'm really excited by the way that people are getting behind artists who would normally be deemed for young people. I love interacting with fans my age and people who are going through the same struggles that I am in real time, but it's also been really fun to also experience those girls' dad be like, 'Wow, I remember when I was going through that heartbreak.'"

Rodrigo took pleasure in knowing that her music is accessible to anyone. She further continued, "It's really cool. People from all walks of life would approach me after hearing Driver's License and say, I remember exactly where I was when I was experiencing that heartbreak for the first time. It's just such a cool thing to see how much more alike we are than we are different. It just makes me feel a little less alone. Wow, my experiences aren't really that unique,' I think. Everyone has felt grief, loss, and insecurity at some point in their lives. I think people are starting to take teenage girl music a little more seriously, which I'm really happy about."
