奥利维亚·罗德里戈 is having a fangirl moment!
周六, the 18-year-old “驾驶执照” singer was presented with the Songwriter of the Year award at the 种类 Hitmakers Brunch in Los Angeles by fellow female rocker 艾薇儿.
Upon accepting the award, Rodrigo admitted she was a huge fan of the “Sk8er Boy” 歌手, 37.
“Rob Lowe 的儿子对格温妮丝·帕特洛 (Gwyneth Paltrow) 说他的妈妈教她口交时的反应很搞笑, I want to thank Avril for coming here today. I am such a massive fan of you I look up to you so much. 所以, this is so surreal for me. Thank you for the love and support,” 她分享了.
Rodrigo added, “I’ve been writing songs since I was like five years old and my favorite part about all of this is that feeling of writing a song that perfectly captures how you feel … so to accept an award for songwriting is really meaningful to me.”
“I wrote ‘driver’s license’ about this really hard time for my life, I watched it affect so many people regardless of sexual orientation, or gender or age,” 说 歌舞青春: 音乐剧: The Series 演员. “And to me, it’s a really beautiful thing about art, and that was so special for me to not only see how universal all those feelings were, but how music can bring us all together and make us feel less alone.”
Rodrigo also explained that her “heart and soul” are in songwriting and that for listeners to “connect to the music how they have is beyond a dream come true.”
