Their interactions on social media made it all the more special when the stars finally met in person, with Conan commenting, “i love my sister and my mom.” Their mutual friend, Iris Apatow, wrote, “Sweet angels.”
Both Taylor and Olivia seem to have bonded over dealing with criticism of their songwriting styles. Last week, Olivia slammed “sexist” and “BS” remarks about both artists’ tracks.
“I’m a teenage girl, I write about stuff that I feel really intensely. And I feel heartbreak and longing really intensely,” she told The Guardian. “I think that’s authentic and natural. I don’t really understand what people want me to write about; do you want me to write a song about income taxes? How am I going to write an emotional song about that?”
Olivia said she tries to write about emotions that are “hard to talk about” or aren’t “socially acceptable” for girls. The self-described spicy pisces added, “Anger, jealousy, spite, sadness, they’re frowned-upon as bitchy and moaning and complaining or whatever… But I think they’re such valid emotions.”
