Controversies

Being Accused of Multiple Plagiarisms

In June 2021, Courtney Love shared an Instagram post that supposed to call out similarities between Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour Prom film teaser and the artwork cover of Live Through This, the second studio album of Hole.

The criticism was taken by Olivia well, stating that she’s “just flattered that Courtney Love knows that [she’s] exist.”

However, it’s not the sole plagiarism issues following the release of her debut album Sour (2021) in May.

She admitted that for the bridge of her second single of the album, de javu, she took inspiration from Taylor Swift. A couple of months after the release, Taylor Swift, St. Vincent, and Jack Antonoff were added into the official list of songwriter credit.

For good 4 u track, Hayley Williams and Josh Farro’s names were added into the credits belatedly after listeners pointed out similarities between Olivia’s track and Paramore’s Misery Business.

Quotes

“I put it out not knowing that [Driver’s License] would get that reaction, so it was really strange [when] it did.”

“I just remember [everyone being] so weird and speculative about stuff they had no idea about. … I don’t really subscribe to hating other women because of boys. I think that’s so stupid, and I really resent that narrative that was being tossed around.”

“I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song. It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important.”

“I’m taking [my sudden rising fame] one step at a time. It can be really tough on your mental health, though.”

“I’m grateful for the people who like me for me, and keep me separated from all the noise and tabloids or what people are saying about me on social media. That’s always been a top priority.”

“I’m feeling such an overwhelming love from everyone. There’s so many amazing fans who showed up, which is crazy.”
