Sabrina Carpenter's Music Video Appears To Shade Olivia Rodrigo After Fans Theorized That The Whole Feud Is A PR Stunt
Yep, we're still here.
Hello! It's Episode 402 in the Olivia Rodrigo/Sabrina Carpenter/Joshua Bassett drama series and things still appear to be going pretty strong, even if some fans do think the whole thing is a PR stunt...
But first, the backstory! You probably know this already so let's try to keep it brief, even if we could probably fill a fairly big book with all the drama so far.
So! High School Musical: The Musical: The Series costars Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett apparently dated (although this was never confirmed), and when they apparently broke up, things were rumored to be pretty messy behind the scenes.
On the same day as Joshua was pictured on an apparent lunch date with Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia dropped a picture on Instagram wearing a "dump him" T-shirt, which seemed pointed, to say the least. And so, an apparent love triangle/feud was born.
We all know that Olivia went on to drop heartbreak anthem "Drivers License," which is still riding high atop the charts and appeared to include more than one reference to Joshua.
The 17-year-old wouldn't be drawn on whether the song was about her costar, but she also didn't shut the rumors down either. In an interview with Billboard, she said: "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."
Then in steamrolled Joshua, who also released a few songs of his own which seemed to be a response to Olivia. One such track was called "Lie Lie Lie," which...well, it's not exactly subtle, is it?
