Sabrina Carpenter's Skin: Why Fans Think It's About Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett

On Thursday, Sabrina Carpenter dropped a new song, ‘Skin.’ Now, fans think it’s in response to Olivia Rodrigo’s track, ‘Driver’s License,’ which fans theorize is about Olivia’s rumored ex and ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ co-star, Joshua Bassett, and his alleged romance with Sabrina.

Y'all talking about Josh but I'm over hear wondering what Lucas is gonna think

what if they all planned these songs being released at the same time just for laughs
Edit: Thanks for the likes
Disney is clearly orchestrating this whole love of triangle. They all have contracts under Disney, Olivia releases ‘Driver’s License’ 2 weeks ago, Joshua releases ‘Lie Lie Lie’ a week ago, and now Sabrina releases ‘Skin’ this week. This is not a coincidence!!

Not them fighting over a guy that looks like a walmart version of sid the science kid

why are people attacking Sabrina for A SONG!? That is literally her career. Do the guys that Taylor Swift writes about get death threats on the daily for a supposed song about them...?

I think we all just need to stfu we don’t know the whole story.

i think sabrinas song is more addressing the hate she’s getting from it, it’s not an attack on olivia. of course sabrinas song mentions olivia but it’s not as an attack. she mentions it for context
not them fighting over a rip off version of young Leonardo Decaprio I-

You guys can not tell to an artist that he isn't allowed to sing about his own point of view about something that involves himself. That's what ya'll doing it to Sabrina, if Olivia can sing about what she is feeling, so does Sabrina.
If Selena can sing about being heart-broken by Justin, The weeknd can sing about being dumped by Selena, if Taylor can sing about Harry Styles, Harry can sing about her. It's their right as artists express themselves through music. Just because you don't like it or you think they shouldn't, doesn't change the fact that it's their right. Just get over it.

It's ridiculous how Sabrina is trending more for being mentioned by a 17 y/o in her song rather than for her actual music.... underrated af

Olivia makes a song and mentions Sabrina,everyone: yes girl go girl
Sabrina responds back by making her own song,everyone: omg how an she do this eww 😷
It’s a publicity stunt it’s way to direct to be genuine
2 exes wrote about each other, fine. Now the new girl is getting herself in the mix, drama.
Sabrina didn't had to clap that hard at Oliva whatever 😫😭

Sure cause Sabrina heard Driver’s License and in that short amount of time wrote, record and made a lyric video.

I bet josh is loving the two girls sing about him 🙄😂

Update: no guy is worth your energy I said what I said lol

You do know that Sabrina received death threats, and a bunch of hate messages because of DL right? Lol she might not only be talking about Olivia when she mentions her not letting ppl get under her skin.
In my opinion it’s literally just Sabrina pouring her feelings out. She was getting a lot of hate and still is and I think the under my skin lyric is more towards the hate than towards Olivia. Sure there’s some shade, but that’s no reason to call her a bad person or anything, she’s human too she has feelings and this is her way of venting, let her vent.

Victoria V:
I love both songs, regardless of all the drama

2 lines are directed towards liv. “I hope one day we can laugh about it” meaning that she hopes one day they become friends again and that this will all be a joke and “don’t drive yourself crazy. It won’t always be this way” meaning that Sabrina is trying to calm Olivia down telling her that it would be ok and that her feelings would change as time passes. The rest is directed towards haters

Jesus is the way the truth and the life. God sent his only begotten Son so that you can have everlasting life. Place your faith in Jesus. Trust Jesus. Jesus Christ. Jesus saves. Jesus conqueres. Calvary Cross. The Blood. Salvation. Gospel. Heaven.

God bless you.
It’s obviously about drivers license lmao
Sabrina is incredible and so is Olivia let them be happy

Gail A.:
Joshua did not "leave" Olivia. They broke up.
First of all, Olivia wrote a song talking about a blond girl. We don’t know if her intention was to shade Sabrina, or have people hate on her or what, but the toxic “fans” made all these theories and were so set on believing them when nothing was ever confirmed. This caused new “fans” to believe it too and become toxic as well, when they LITERALLY did NOT know the full story. Soon enough, Sabrina started receiving soooo much hate, even death threats!!! She stopped posting for about 3 weeks most likely because of the amount of hate she was getting. It was probably making her feel like s***. So of course she took a break from social media (or at least from posting on social media). I’m sure that at this point everyone knew about Sabrina getting a lot of hate. So I know that Olivia knew about the hate Sabrina was getting, too.

Now get this: we don’t know what Olivia’s intention was when she talked about the “blond girl”. However, if it was not her intention to shade Sabrina or have people send her hate, why hasn’t Olivia addressed this? We all know that Olivia knows about the hate Sabrina has been getting. I just think that addressing it would’ve been the right thing to do. She could’ve said something like “I know there has been a lot of speculations and theories about my new song, ‘drivers license.’ I just want to say, whoever you think it’s about, please do not send them hate. It was never my intention to have someone receive hate. Please, do not send anyone hate.” You know, something like that. But since she didn’t do that, I am now questioning Olivia’s intentions.

Let’s talk about the song now. This song is (clearly) in response to Olivia’s song. Sabrina is basically standing up to Olivia because now Sabrina feels like it WAS her intention to have people hate on her. See what I’m saying? Sabrina has every right to stand up for herself.

My final thoughts: I am questionable about Olivia’s intentions. I wouldn’t be questionable if Olivia had just cleared the air for us, but she didn’t. Now, don’t get me wrong, I, in fact, do love her song. And I hope to see Sabrina and Olivia become friends or make peace one day and that they will continue to grow as people, as well as as artists. Thanks for making it to this last sentence 🙏😊💕
Not me investing my time in a love triangle ... 👩‍🦯🧍‍♀️
Guys just enjoy the song, about who the song is about is the least important part of the song,

reducing someone to some annoyingly perfect girl who stole your man while you're just so vulnerable and real is not a compliment y'all.

BRO I’d pay to see them all respond to the drama in a recorded Zoom call
its not a love triangle. cishets don’t understand how shapes work
yall only nitpicking the parts that are bad. she said maybe we could laugh abt it at some time , and like chill cus in the end it won’t rly matter “don’t drive yourself insane”.

Okay, I get that drivers license popped off and got pretty popular.. but in all honesty I think that sabrina’s song is better.. vocally and lyrically! I’m not saying that Olivia is not good.. it’s just she’s new, young and inexperienced. Sabrina is a lot more famous than Olivia, so there for a lot more people know who sabrina is... so Olivia writing this song ended up affecting Sabrina’s career, and nobody really understands that... Olivia’s not even an adult yet, so her actions are kinda uncalled for... she should know that messing with someone’s career is a lot worse than any high school boy drama.

Jade Gomez
Jade Gomez:
i like olivia and sabrina and i like both songs but i feel like olivias song is more from the heart and more emotional whereas sabrinas song was just kinda petty ish like she did it to kinda show off that she got the guy no hate or wtv but yeah that’s what i feel
Noemi Ladak
Noemi Ladak:
Honestly tho I feel like the parts directed to Liv were the verses and the bridge, not the pre chorus and chorus.. It think those are directed more to the people who hated on her cause of Drivers License. I literally refuse to believe Sab would do Liv like that.. honestly tho a Sab x Liv collab would literally be the best thing ever

When they all can sing and I'm here sounding like chalk on a board

I feel like some parts of it were directed to the fans though. I can clearly see that some could have been directed to olivia. But the under my skin part kinda to me feels like its directed towards fans. but that just me
this is literally a Disney set up

The fact that she’s pressed about a girl 4 year younger than her 🤣
Izzy Donati
Izzy Donati:
No matter how many songs people sing against Olivia and her song, Drivers License always comes out on top like it should. ❤️❤️
Olivia's song feels way more real, Josh and Sabrina's songs feel way more forced and disingenuous.
Don't yall think the girls in enough pain already, just let have her damn song and get on with your lives.
Olivia Kelly
Olivia Kelly:
But can we talk about how good Olivia’s voice sounds
danna kishi
danna kishi:
am i the only one who thinks that
“while he’s on mine” could be some kind of metaphor? maybe she meant that people can try to make her feel bad but she is already happy and she has what makes her happy.
Y'all need to react to Olivia's "Apocalyptic Crush" and "21st Century Girls" I feel like Sabrina's song "Skin" is a reaction to those songs. 🙂
HSMTMTS filming is gonna be interesting 😳🤚
What if, by next 2 weeks, they collaborate & make a song ? XD
They choose the perfect part of Joshua's song cause it really fits well with the situation.

Child I’m ready for this tea
personally i think that sabrinna was mentioned in like 3 lines so skin to me sounds like a bit of an overreaction if it is about olivia which it sounds like it is

the song is definitely a response to the song

ik sabrina stans have said she's been teasing music since december, but tia scola (one of the songwriters on the track) said they wrote it last thursday, so yes sabrina is all within her rights to say her side of the story and to speak her truth but the way she framed it did not sit right with me. "You can try/To get under my, under my, under my skin/While hе’s on mine", like girl we get GOT THE GUY. And the fact that she wrote it last week, and wanted to drop it THIS week (exactly 2 weeks after drivers license is in my personal opinion not the good marketing move she thought it was..........). her chart numbers are up but her reputation went down so at what cost was this the move to drop??????

Jada Keryn:
I think Sabrina took the song the wrong way :/ "She's everything I'm insecure about" talk about compliments!!
Edit: At this point, I think they just shared their pov and fans start picking sides. I think if they talk about it, they'll truly understand what each other were saying and see eye to eye

i just thing that drivers license was more direct towards josh and didn’t really have anything to do with sabrina, but again we don’t know the fully story
