Olivia Rodrigo has no problem spilling her darkest secrets to the driver (Picture: Getty)If you want to know all of Olivia Rodrigo’s darkest secrets, just share an Uber with her.
The drivers license chart-topper admits she is a backseat blabbermouth and treats her rides like the therapist’s couch.
‘I’ve always been such an oversharer,’ said the 18-year-old. ‘I’ll tell my Uber driver all of my deepest traumas and insecurities.’
A lot of that comes from having to navigate stardom as a youngster. The Disney star conceded: ‘It would be a bald-faced lie if I say that I didn’t face any misogyny in the music industry — especially being a young girl.’
Olivia braved more trauma this week when she flew to London to perform drivers licence live for the first time, at the Brit awards.
‘I was so nervous rehearsing,’ she admitted. ‘My team were like, “It’s fine, there’s just going to be 45 people” and I’m like, “Yeah, but the 45 people are Harry Styles and Dua Lipa; that’s so scary!”’
But Olivia got over her fears when Taylor Swift invited her to hang out backstage.
‘She’s been really inspiring for me, to watch somebody take control of their career and their life like that,’ she gushed to NME. ‘I think she’s the best songwriter of all time.’

Dua’s levitating towards a U.S. No.1
It’s nightie-night from Dua Lipa as she puts a mammoth week to bed — but she’s not done yet.
The double-Brit winner is nearing the end of an almost year-long climb to the top of the US charts.
Posting a sizzling out-take from the week, Dua is taking the tortoise route to her first US No.1. She was determined that her slow burner Levitating would be a hit after it bombed last summer — even though it featured Madonna.
The 25-year-old refused to give up and re-recorded it with DaBaby. Now, eight months later, the track stands at No.2 on the US Billboard chart.
