Our lives have officially been divided into before ‘drivers license’ and after ‘drivers license’, and we will continue comparing the two. Not to mention that killer, heart-shattering bridge. 

BUT. Rumor has it, the real tea as to why this song was an overnight sensation is according to fans, the song was written about her co-star Joshua Bassett, and the blonde girl mentioned in the verse:

“And you’re probably with that blonde girl

Who always made me doubt

She’s so much older than me

She’s everything I’m insecure about” 

….is speculated to be Sabrina Carpenter. 

Sabrina is rumored to be the third person in Olivia & Josh’s relationship. For context, read this. 

Naturally, Swifties from all around the globe relate to the sadness of this song because, duh.

And best of all, it caught the attention of Miss Taylor Swift herself:

Does her comment sound familiar? That’s because Taylor’s mum said the same thing before.
