Olivia Rodrigo Addressed Feud Rumors With Taylor Swift, And Her Response Is Raising Eyebrows

After months of speculation, Olivia responded to the rumors about the edgy lyrics from her latest single, "Vampire."

Uh oh! We have a development in the alleged feud between Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Olivia opened up about her musical journey, and her comments, or lack thereof, about her comeback single "Vampire" has brought new speculation of the rumored beef.

When asked about the fans' speculation that the lyrics "Bloodsucker, fame fucker, bleedin' me dry like a goddamn vampire!" is about Taylor, she had an interesting response.

"How do I answer this?" Olivia whispered, according to The Guardian.

"I mean, I never want to say who any of my songs are about. I've never done that before in my career and probably won't. I think it's better to not pigeonhole a song to being about this one thing."

After laughing nervously, she added, "I was very surprised when people thought that."

For context, in 2021, Olivia shared that Taylor was a big influence, and the two even shared cute interactions on social media praising one another over the release of Olivia's debut single, "Drivers License."

Initially, fans focused on an alleged feud between Olivia and Sabrina Carpenter when it was speculated Olivia's debut single was about the former love triangle between the two women and her ex, Joshua Bassett.

At this time, it appeared Taylor and Olivia were cool.

Fast forward to the release of Olivia's debut album, Sour, which included several songs inspired by Taylor.

After retroactive accreditation, hefty royalty shares, and Grammy mishaps, Olivia hadn't directly addressed any feud rumors except telling Time, "It was really frustrating to see people discredit and deny my creativity."

On top of that, fans noticed Taylor and Olivia weren't interacting with each other at events, and the "Karma" singer even became closer with Sabrina Carpenter, Olivia's other alleged rival.

And just like that, fans began to speculate that there was a huge feud between the singers based on these situations,  and "Vampire" was all about it.

If you ask me, I think "Vampire" might be about a famous mouse, but let me pretend to mind my business.
