Olivia Rodrigo got to meet his number one idol in person! The stars met for the first time at Tuesday night’s BRIT Awards, with the “Driver’s License” singer documenting their hangout with a playful black-and-white photo of them making silly faces.
Olivia Rodrigo, 18, captioned her Instagram post with some teary-eyed emojis to show how overwhelmed she was by the long-awaited meet-up. Olivia, who has been compared to Taylor Swift, has often spoken about her respect for the 31-year-old “Cardigan” singer.
And the feeling is mutual. In March, Taylor Swift sent Olivia Rodrigo a special ring to help keep the up-and-coming singer-songwriter inspired. “She is absolutely the kindest individual in the whole world,” the “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star said of Swift during a March interview with SiriusXM.
Olivia Rodrigo revealed the Grammy winner sent her the piece of jewelry “because she said she wore one just like it when she wrote ‘Red’ and she wanted me to have one like it … and like all of this amazing stuff, she’s like hand-wrapped these gifts.”
