Olivia Rodrigo; the 20-year-old American actress and songwriter who wrote and produced the 2021 ‘SOUR’ album that served as her debut studio album, has been making some headlines in recent days over her 2023 MET-GALA appearance. The album which she released in 2021 is liked by 96% of Google users. Since Google accumulates more than 89 billion users a day, it is safe to say that ‘SOUR’ is loved by many, if not all of the world, at the moment.
Previously, Olivia Rodrigo has proven to be multi-talented when she took on some unique acting roles that got her praise for her performance, before fully diverting attention to music and music alone. But, aside from being a very good musician, she is in fact, a good fashionista. Recently, she proved how much of a ‘HOT SHOT’ she is when it comes to fashion, in the 2023 MET-GALA; themed ‘A Line of Beauty – in honor of Karl Lagerfeld’ which was just concluded some days back.
This year’s MET-GALA was an event to remember as it undoubtedly re-instated Karl Lagerfeld’s dominance in the fashion industry. And what better way for Olivia Rodrigo to display utmost solidarity with the course, other than looking exceptionally beautiful in her ‘Black and White’ gown which was designed by Thom Browne.
Thom Browne is indeed a lucky and remarkable fashion designer himself, and getting the young and vibrant Olivia Rodrigo to display his master craftsmanship only increases his chances of winning even more in the world of fashion. Even though it was only, but her 3rd year and time attending the MET-GALA, Olivia Rodrigo marked time with her astonishing look as a result of Thom Browne’s professionalism, and with complete solidarity to the remembrance of Karl Lagerfeld.
Here’s a Brief Walk through the Timeline of Olivia Rodrigo
The early life of Olivia Rodrigo almost tallies with that of Billie Eilish, and seeing that they both had ‘teaching mothers’ as their moms explain a lot of why both ladies have a decent lifestyle worthy of emulation, and also filled with opportunities to choose from, to an extent.
Another thing tying the two musicians together is the fact that they both started singing at a very early age. But, enough about comparing the two super-stars. After all, they both aredoing extremely well in their respective areas of concentration and dedication. Overall, this time, the spotlight is on Olivia Rodrigo but you can check out also, How Did Billie Eilish Become So Famous At a Young Age.
Olivia Rodrigo is in fact, an only child of her parents. Her mother, Jennifer Rodrigo, who is a school teacher, and Chris Rodrigo, the father who is working as a family therapist, both raised Olivia Rodrigo.
Her family’s origin is somewhat confusing. The more you look, the more you are likely to get confused, but here’s a bit of explanation to help you get it right.
Rodrigo grew up in Temecula, according to Wikipedia.
Temecula is a place Olivia described as ‘Neighboring’. Olivia is a Filipino American; this makes her ethnicity because her father is a full-fledged Filipino. Her mother on the other hand has Irish and German ancestry. And we believe to an extent, that this contributes greatly to why Olivia Rodrigo is effortlessly and uniquely diverse in everything she does. It is unclear if Olivia Rodrigo would have preferred to be of German or Irish ethnicity, but we are sure that she is Filipino by birth as nature would have it.
Starting to sing at an early age might become tiring to some people, especially for the fact that good music isn’t always appreciated in some parts of the world. And so, people tend to divert attention to something else as they grow older. But, the case turned out completely different for Olivia since she only did grow fonder of music, as she grew older.
In 2015, when Olivia Rodrigo turned 12, she made her debut appearance as an actor. This came about shortly after she made her first appearance on TV for commercial purposes.
Rodrigo Olivia went on to take on several acting roles which we believe all played a significant role in building the world-recognized personality she has now.
Her last acting role was back in 2019, when she was cast in a Series, acting as ‘Salazar Roberts,’ a series that was aired by Disney.
Olivia Rodrigo was praised for her superb performance after the movie was premiered. But, shortly after, she left the show to focus more on music which was back in 2022.
2020 was, however; the music breakthrough year for Olivia Rodrigo and here is why. While Olivia Rodrigo was still playing roles in the series, she signed a contract with Geffen Records and also, Interscope Records. It was unarguably the biggest, and the best deal of her life – it completely changed her life, and she has a trail of achievements to show for it.
Olivia Rodrigo managed to negotiate with the record labels, while securing for herself, ownership of the masters of her songs. That single act served as a stepping stone for Olivia Rodrigo. Today, she has a long list of achievements to show for it. You can check out more about Olivia Rodrigo on Celebrity Spotlight, www.fanbe.co.
