It's been over a month since Olivia Rodrigo released her chart-topping hit "Driver's License." Since then, many of us have been journeying through theories and following the drama that may or may not have unfolded with singer Sabrina Carpenter and Rodrigo's ex and co-star Joshua Bassett.
In a recent interview with BuzzFeed promoting his debut self-titled EP, Bassett talked more about his feelings on Rodrigo's single.
When asked whether he was tired of being asked about the drama behind the song, Bassett told BuzzFeed, "No, I mean, I get it. I get why people are asking about that stuff — but it doesn't really get to me. It's kind of amusing at this point."
In an episode of Saturday Night Live, there was a sketch all about "Driver's License" starring Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page and Rodrigo's ultimate celebrity crush Pete Davidson. And, of course, the cast members couldn't talk about the song without bringing up rumored behind-the-scenes tension.
This didn't bother Bassett at all, however. "Even like the SNL stuff, that's hilarious to me," he said. "People were so worried about me — and I'm like, dude, I'm honored that SNL is making fun of me! "
He also has no ill feelings towards Rodrigo. In fact, Bassett's happy for her and added, "I'm also just proud of her and the success that her song is having. I really couldn't be mad at the situation."
His EP, Joshua Bassett, is out now and can be streamed here.
