"She is absolutely the kindest individual in the whole world," Rodrigo shared. Swift sent Rodrigo a congratulatory gift for her song, "drivers license," earning a top 3 chart slot. Rodrigo spoke on The Morning Mash Up podcast and said, "Actually, last night, literally like 12 hours ago, I got a package from her with this — like, handwritten note. And she gave me this ring because she said she wore one just like it when she wrote ‘Red’ and she wanted me to have one like it and all of this amazing stuff,” the singer continued. “She's, like, hand-wrapped these gifts. I truly don't understand where she finds the time, first of all.”
“But, like also, I feel so lucky that I just was born at the right time to be able to look up to somebody like her,” Rodrigo added. “I think she's incredible. All of her support [has been so] genuine, like compassion and excitement for me is just been so, so surreal." After the initial hype surrounding "drivers license," Rodrigo and the drama about the song and its subjects blew up the Internet. Whether it is about her alleged ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend or not remains a mystery.
Rodrigo shared a photo of the iTunes charts with her song below two of Taylor Swift's, saying how unbelievable the news was. Swift even replied to the post saying, "I say that's my baby and I'm really proud.” Looks like this is the making of the start of a sweet friendship!
