Guess what? Olivia Rodrigo is decoding Billie Eilish’s musical Morse code about her!
In a top-secret chat with The Los Angeles Times back in November, the 21-year-old crooner of “What Was I Made For” spilled the beans that a track on her Happier Than Ever album was basically a musical shoutout to the 20-year-old “Vampire” maestro.
Hold on to your hats because the song, titled “Goldwing,” is apparently a crystal ball prediction for a “sacred” new artist who’s about to navigate the treacherous waters of the music industry. It’s like a musical GPS for the unwary, cautioning them about the pitfalls and landmines of fame.
Fast forward to December, and Olivia, in her interview sequel with The L.A. Times, spilled her thoughts on this melodic crystal ball.
Get this—Olivia found out about Billie’s musical oracle from one of her buddies and thought it was “so sweet.” Now, that’s some sugar-coated pop drama for you! Olivia even gushed, “Billie is such a kind, wonderful girl, and I feel very lucky that it’s not about competition — that we’re just looking out for each other.” Move over, frenemies; here comes the era of harmonic sisterhood!
Hold your applause because Olivia isn’t just any bystander in this pop symphony. She’s also a fan of the prophetic anthem, admitting, “I love that song.” Who knew predicting the future could sound so catchy?
And let’s not forget Olivia’s stint as the first young star to burst onto the scene after Billie. In her reflective moment, she dropped the bomb, saying, “I think for any young person in the entertainment industry, that’s a little bit of a mindf-ck.” Well, we didn’t see that plot twist coming, did we?
Now, when Billie spilled the tea on “Goldwing” to the magazine, she confessed, “Olivia was getting big, and she was just, like, this little dainty child. I felt so nervous. I was worried about her… I don’t know — I just felt very protective over her.” It’s like a pop-music guardian angel situation!
The pop world isn’t just about catchy tunes and flashy outfits; it’s a place where artists look out for each other, drop cryptic warnings in their music, and play the role of musical fortune-tellers. Move over Nostradamus; Billie and Olivia are taking over the crystal ball business!
