    Someone On TikTok Found A Clue About The Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter "Drivers License" Drama

    "Maybe we could've been friends, if I met you in another life."

    Ok, so before we get into it, here's a quick refresher: Olivia Rodrigo wrote the song "Driver's License," which is rumored to be about Joshua Bassett, her former High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star.

    It's the Gen Z anthem.

    In it, she specifically references a "blonde girl" that's "so much older" than her, whom she thinks is the reason why the boy in the song (probably Joshua) left her.

    Enter Sabrina Carpenter, the rumored "blonde girl" Olivia is reffering to, who just last week released her own song "Skin," seemingly addressing the drama.

    There are honestly a bucketload of lyrics in "Skin" that could be referencing this drama, but I'd like to hone in on these two: "maybe blonde was the only rhyme" and "you're telling it how you see it, like truth is whatever you decide."

    Also, "I'm happy and you hate it" and "you can try to get under my skin, while he's on mine."

    Got it? OK, good. That brings us to now: Disney's potential involvement.

    Buckle up.

    Taylor Lucas, a 20-year-old on TikTok, posted this video yesterday of a clip from Disney's 2014 sitcom Girl Meets World.

    We got played. #teamolivia #disney #diverslicence

    ♬ drivers license - Olivia Rodrigo

    And GUESS WHO starred on that show? Yep, a one Sabrina Carpenter.

    Anyway, in the clip, Riley (played by Rowan Blanchard) is reading to the class, looking DIRECTLY at Sabrina's character saying, "We could have been friends, maybe in some other life."

    That is almost IDENTICAL to a line in "Skin" where Sabrina says, "Maybe we could've been friends, if I met you in another life."

    Also, the poem or short story or whatever Riley is reading is conveniently called, "The Girl with the Long, Blonde Hair."

    Is Disney the Kris Jenner of TV networks?

    Coincidence?? I think not.

    @tayloranne31 / Via tiktok.com

    Sabrina's probably thinking, "Huh, that would make a good song lyric one day."

    Taylor summarized the situation best:

    We've been foiled again.

    Taylor then posted this video of a comment from someone else on TikTok saying, "Disney you have 24 hours to respond."

    @tayloranne31 / Via tiktok.com

    Disney is probably sweating right now.

    Needless to say, this drama has had us all sucked in for the past three weeks. And if Disney is responsible, they clearly have us all wrapped around their finger.
