Olivia Rodrigo dazzles the White House: meeting Joe Biden and Dr Anthony Fauci for a Covid-19 vaccine social media campaign, the pop star wants her fans to be happy, healthy and vaccinated – photos
Olivia Rodrigo wants her fans to be happy, healthy and vaccinated against Covid-19.
Photos show Rodrigo in a pink plaid blazer, matching skirt and white platform heels with black socks arriving to the White House Wednesday morning. In videos circulating on social media, Rodrigo can be seen walking into the West Wing.
“I was just so pleased that it connected with people older than me,” Rodrigo said of the album. “Even if you’re not going through a heartbreak, it can take you back to a time when you were experiencing feelings like that. My favourite part about music is that it can transport you to different places. My songs can transport a 50-year-old man back to when he was 18 going through his first heartbreak. And [it’s] not something I take for granted.”
Rodrigo’s solo debut with Drivers Licence, the pop ballad about a lost love, went viral on social media and broke Spotify’s record for most streams of a song in a single week. It even got a stamp of approval from Taylor Swift, who responded to Rodrigo’s success by posting “that’s my baby and I’m so proud”.
Well, we bet Swift is equally proud of Rodrigo’s vaccination campaign, too.
After a strong period of vaccination drives across the United States, the pace has slowed down, with young people among the main groups failing to get their shots.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 48 per cent of the US population has been fully vaccinated and 55.5 per cent have received at least one dose.
