In a recent interview with Audacy‘s “The Julio Show,” Olivia Rodrigo spoke about how she and her co-writer Dan Nigro almost cut a line from the lyrics of her “Vampire” track.
Rodrigo confessed during her appearance on “The Julio Show” that they discussed at length including the phrase “fame f–er” in the chorus of “Vampire,” which scorches an ex-boyfriend for leeching off her stardom and exploiting their relationship.
“Some people said, ‘It kind of isolates you from people, you can’t really say things like that in song, it’s not relatable,’ yada, yada, yada,” Rodrigo shared.
“I totally get and saw where they were coming from,” she continued. “I think the song isn’t about fame f-ing, I think it’s more about someone being manipulative and sucking you dry, using you for all you’re worth. I think that’s a universal theme, and I also think fame is more easily accessible now than it has ever been. It’s not just people in LA and Hollywood that have to deal with that.”
“Vampire” is believed to have been about Rodrigo’s rumored ex-boyfriend Zack Bia. The song hit debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100, dethroning Morgan Wallen‘s “Last Night.”
It also earned Rodrigo her third single to debut at No. 1 following Sour‘s “Drivers License” and “Good 4 U.”
