Sabrina Carpenter isn’t allowing romantic show to get under her “Skin.”
The 21-year-old star of the Disney reboot “Girl Meets World” just delivered another single on Friday, “Skin,” and fans appear to be certain it’s a clapback to individual Mouse House entertainer Olivia Rodrigo — who, recently, appeared her interest loaded most recent, “Drivers License,” in a video.
The two ladies are being set in opposition to one another in features following theory that Carpenter had as of late gathered up Rodrigo’s ex-darling, Joshua Bassett, 20. He and Rodrigo, 17, featured together in the Disney+ unique show “High School Musical: The Musical —The Series.” Their relationship purportedly bloomed while playing shared love interests in the series.
Yet, nowadays, Bassett has been seen investing energy with Carpenter, as seen via social media.
Then, Rodrigo has been staying her own business, enthusiastically advancing her new single that immediately shot to No. 1 on Apple Music’s Top 100. At that point, fans guessed the single was a reaction to the show blending between her ex and his new fling.
However, between fooling around with Bassett on TikTok and ending up at the focal point of an affection triangle, Carpenter figured out how to deliver new music of her own, with verses that read like a reaction to Rodrigo’s hit, as fans bring up via online media.
“I KNOW SABRINA CARPENTER DID NOT JUST — ,” tweeted @katienicks_, alongside lines from the new track: “You can try to get under my skin, while he’s on mine … Don’t drive yourself insane.”
“Sabrina Carpenter saying she can’t get under her skin…… but she did a whole song about her????,” added @Hope_E_Xoxo.
“Let’s make this clear: sabrina carpenter & olivia are not ‘fighting’ over joshua,” wrote @jusswannaexhale. “Skin is directed towards the hate that the internet immediately threw at her not knowing anything about her. even the lyric ‘i just hope that one day, we both can laugh about it’ shows it.”
Yet, @sabbysgemini assumes an even more cunning motivation for the so-called drama: publicity.
She wrote, “Hope the sabrina and olivia fandom collectively know that this is a publicity stunt . . . anyway stream skin by sabrina carpenter.”
The bits of gossip are evidently paying off for everybody, with Carpenter’s “Skin” presently climbing Apple Music’s Top 10 Pop Chart. As of Friday morning, it was No. 6, while “Drivers License” stayed situated at the top.
