In 2021, the star of High School Musical: The Series: The Musical Olivia Rodrigo released Drivers Licence, a
pop song that exploded on the charts around the world and propelled the young woman to stardom. With emotive lyrics, Olivia, then a tender
17 years old, talked about the pains of breaking up with a boyfriend who dumped her for a "blonde, much older" than her.
It didn't take long for the song to be associated with Joshua
Bassett, Olivia's partner in the Disney series with whom she was in a
real-life relationship, and Sabrina Carpenter, a singer and former Disney actress who was emerging as the lead in
Dancer Imperfect, a Netflix movie. After all, Sabrina is blonde, older, and started dating Bassett soon after Olivia.
