‘Yeah, it’s very weird. I turned 18, and then I came back and finished my album and moved out and everything. So it was all a very condensed growing-up experience,’ Rodrigo said in her Billboard cover story.

‘[It’s] my first, like, own house, sort of, situation. We’re traveling a bunch, this month and the next month. So I’m trying not to get too settled anywhere.’

Rodrigo said: ‘Maybe when I was, like, 30 or something and I had kids – I’d stop making music and just write for other people. Because I just love songwriting. I love songwriting more than putting out songs’

‘The second the album cycle for this is over and I’m not traveling, that’s the one thing that I want to do so bad,’ Rodrigo lamented.

‘I always said that I wanted to do that: Maybe when I was, like, 30 or something and I had kids – I’d stop making music and just write for other people. Because I just love songwriting. I love songwriting more than putting out songs.’

The brunette beauty will reprise her role as Nini Salazar-Roberts in the 12-episode second season of High School Musical: The Musical – The Series, which premieres this Friday on Disney+.

Olivia will also compete for the social star award trophy at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which air May 27 on Fox.
