Just ask Olivia Rodrigo who has become one of the hottest celebrities in recent years. That in turn takes a toll on her mental health, she reveals.
"I'm taking it one step at a time. It can be really tough on your mental health, though," Olivia tells Vogue Singapore about her meteoric rise to fame.
"I'm grateful for the people who like me for me, and keep me separated from all the noise and tabloids or what people are saying about me on social media. That's always been a top priority," added the artiste.
Olivia further expressed that growing up in the age of social media can be a struggle. "You look at social media and see the perfect parts of people's lives and it's so hard not to compare your life to theirs. It's even weird for me to see my Instagram page; that's what people think of me but that doesn't feel like me. I wish they knew the real me," she explained.
The Good 4 U singer said her upbringing has helped her to cope with fame as she had been surrounded by adults since a young age. "My mum is a teacher and my dad is a therapist. In middle school, I was home-schooled and started working on sets, which adds to the unique thing about my upbringing."
