Miley Cyrus reminds everyone that she's the original Olivia Rodrigo. If people are hailing and loving Rodrigo for her angsty, pop music these days, Cyrus wants them to remember that she has done it first.
Before the world (and the teens) are blessed with Olivia Rodrigo's angsty post-break-up bop "Good 4 U," Miley Cyrus' legendary pop-punk anthem, "7 Things," has been around for nearly a decade already.
The ex-Disney star and world phenomenal singer Miley herself is well aware of how great of a cultural impact this song has made.
This is why, after nearly 10 years, she decided that she wanted to sing the song again - which made fans and followers went wild.
The "Plastic Hearts" singer posted a video of her singing the song and some fans completely lost their ability to stay chill. They missed it, after all, and could not deny that Miley has a point in her caption, which read, "VerifiedYou'll tell your kids I invented angsty teen punk rock realness."
It's also undeniable that some of Cyrus' fans truly have kids now. But her song "7 Things" cannot be described as having gotten old. It has a clear message that teens, especially girls need to hear right now.
It's apparent that she did not mention Olivia Rodrigo, or that she's out there to get anyone. But fans can certainly make a comparison. They have been doing it for some time now, considering Rodrigo is a teen actress turned songstress herself.
But back in May, Rodrigo herself claimed that her career path just looks similar to Miley Cyrus' or Selena Gomez's, but it is truly starkly different.
"My music is definitely separate from my acting in a way I always dreamed would happen," she shared. "When 'drivers license' came out, everyone was like, 'I have no idea who this Olivia Rodrigo girl is, but I love this song.' That is the absolute dream for me, because I've always wanted to be taken seriously as a songwriter."
She hinted that her music career is much more aligned with Taylor Swift's, who writes and sings about her own life experiences. Swift is notoriously known for writing about her breakups, and then singing these massive hits. Rodrigo finds it quite fascinating, she said.
