Filipino-American pop star Olivia Rodrigo is overwhelmed by the messages she receives from fans thanking her for representing the Asian community.
“I sometimes get DMs from little girls being like, `I`ve never seen someone who looked like me in your position.` And I`m literally going to cry. Like just thinking about it. I feel like I grew up never seeing that. Also it was always like, `Pop star,` that`s a white girl,” Rodrigo said in an interview conducted by `Saturday Night Live` star Bowen Yang for V Magazine. The `Drivers License` singer was praised by Bowen who told Rodrigo was “radical by just existing as a musician”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
He said: “I think you are kind of doing something very radical by just existing as a musician and the way that you are as this Asian artist. I don`t know if that ever factors into the way that you approach your career. Because if I think about that too much myself, I get overwhelmed. “And so I only open that drawer every now and then. How often do you open the drawer?” Rodrigo then added: “I think we share a lot in that sort of space, and that`s incredible to think about.”
