In a recent interview with Capital FM, Olivia Rodrigo discussed getting music industry advice from Niall Horan while revealing an embarrassing (but relatable) One Direction-related hobby she had in middle school. Just in case you didn’t know, Rodrigo is currently cruising to global stardom at just 17-years-old with the success of her Billboard Hot 100 No.1 single drivers license.
Relatable! Olivia Rodrigo used to write One Direction fanfiction
Confessing to Capital FM’s Will Manning, Olivia went into detail about the cheesy fantasies she composed. Of course, this includes a proposal from Harry Styles.
“I actually was the hugest One Direction fan when I was younger. This is sort of embarrassing, but I’m going to tell you anyway. … I used to write One Direction fan fiction when I was in middle school. Just like the cheesy [stuff], ‘Oh, Harry proposes to you and asks you to be his wife.’ … I was that die-hard of a fan.”
Now, she gets advice from Niall Horan himself.
Olivia remained well-known for her character as Nini in the series High School Music: The Musical where she wrote and sang the famous song, All I Want. With drivers license having worldwide recognition, she’s been navigating the craziness of the industry fairly well as a teenager. During the interview, she continued to say how amazing it felt to receive advice from One Direction’s Irish member himself.
“So the fact that [Niall’s] reached out to me is amazing. We’ve actually been texting. He’s been giving me advice about the craziness of the music industry. So it’s been really amazing.”
Aside from Horan, she has also received celebrity support from Halsey who delivered a cake that read “Congrats Olivia!” and featured an image of fake Olivia Rodrigo California drivers license with macarons and candy stars along the edges. Taylor Swift also expressed her support when Rodgio posted on Instagram and she commented, “I say that’s my baby and I’m really proud.”
