8. She isn’t Mexican or Italian. Come on, guys

Olivia Rodrigo is a veritable rainbow of diversity, but none of her ancestors come from Mexico or Italy. On her mother’s side she’s of Irish and German descent. Meanwhile, her father’s grandfather originally came to the US from the Philippines as a teenager. In fact, she embraces her Filipina side, celebrating its traditions and cuisine.

7. She is proof that we’re now living in the Age of TikTok

Once upon a time, if you wanted a song to become a hit, you’d upload it onto YouTube or Instagram and wait for it to go viral. But now? Don’t be silly. Those platforms are sooooo 2020. While Olivia did indeed debut a demo of “drivers license” on her Instagram account in July 2020, the song really blew up when TikTok user @spoiledmel used the studio version of the chorus in a post. Today, TikTok videos with the hashtag #DriversLicense have garnered almost 6 billion views!

6. If you believe in all that Zodiac nonsense, she’s compatible with Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn

Rodrigo was born on February 20, making her a Pisces. She even calls herself a “spicy pisces” in her social media account bios. If taken literally, this means she’s a fish that has an agreeably pungent taste. And if your sign happens to be any of the above aforementioned and you play your cards right (and you’re a dude), you might just become Mr. Olivia Rodrigo $omeday.
