Joshua Bassett’s has received a lot of backlash due to allegedly breaking Olivia Rodrigo’s heart.
Olivia Rodrigo broke records by having the biggest single-day streams in Spotify history. “Drivers License” is a song allegedly about Joshua Bassett and Sabrina Carpenter. Fans started speculating the song was inspired by Rodrigo’s co-star after she revealed Bassett taught her how to drive. In addition, Olivia Rodrigo threw shade about Sabrina Carpenter by stating..
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
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
‘Cause how could I ever love someone else? Source: Genius
Joshua Bassett decided to release his single “Lie Lie Lie” on January 14th. Joshua Bassett hinted that his song is not about Olivia Rodrigo.
“I wrote ‘Lie, Lie, Lie’ after I found out a friend had been lying about me behind my back for a long time. It always sucks to hear that someone you thought you could trust would throw you under the bus when it benefits them. It happens to all of us, and I think all you can do is seek out people that build you up rather than tear you down”.
