Here's Why People Are Hating On Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo found herself at the center of a whirlwind of discussions of whether her hit song, 'Deja Vu' was plagiarised.

The Controversy

Controversy first arose when fans noticed similarities between Rodrigo's "Deja Vu" and Taylor Swift's "Cruel Summer," leading to accusations of plagiarism.

In July 2021, reports circulated that Taylor Swift's team had accused Olivia Rodrigo of copyright infringement related to "Deja Vu."

Alleged Lawsuit

No Records

However, no public record of a lawsuit being filed exists, and both artists remained silent on the matter.

Credits To Paramore

Instead, the songwriters of "Misery Business," (Hayley Williams and Josh Farro), were credited on Rodrigo's song "Good 4 U" in August 2021.

Their Relationship

Speculations about hidden hostilities between the two artists persisted, despite Rodrigo's professed admiration for Swift.

The controversy had consequences for Rodrigo, potentially affecting her public image and fanbase.


Olivia stated she was caught off guard by the controversy as she was relatively new to the music industry and had limited involvement in the decision.

Low-Level Involvement

When asked about demanding credits for similarities in the future, Olivia stated she wouldn't do it now but doesn't know about the future.
