Sabrina Carpenter Explains *That* Blonde Lyric Reference in ‘Skin’

Sabrina addresses the “blonde” lyric in her song, “Skin”. It appears in the first verse at the beginning of the song “Maybe then we could pretend / There’s no gravity in the words we write / Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe “blonde” was the only rhyme / The only rhyme”. Cosmopolitan helped share Sabrina’s explanation. The full article and accompanying video can be read and watched below.

The love triangle that keeps on giving—that’s what I’m going to begin calling the continuous Sabrina Carpenter/Olivia Rodrigo/Joshua Bassett drama. There’s a new development because Sabrina recently addressed *that* lyric in “Skin.” Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about. Olivia released her hit “Drivers License” and Sabrina later released “Skin.” They both have a lyric that not-so-subtly references each other.

Olivia sings, “And you’re probably with that blonde girl / Who always made me doubt”.

Sabrina sings, “Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe blonde was the only rhyme”.

Hmm…it doesn’t take a detective to realize that Olivia is singing about Sabrina and Sabrina is responding by calling out Olivia’s lyric. “I guess people care, and I was, like, curious as to why people cared”, Sabrina said on the Zach Sang Show. Let me point out that of course people care and Sabrina probably cares too since she put the blonde lyric in the song, but I digress.

She continued, “But I also think, again, it’s like people are pointing fingers, but at the same time, like, it’s not for me to say who is or it isn’t about, ’cause it’s not my story. That’s not my narrative. I’m just approaching it from you know, again, the attention that people kind of directed toward me, assuming that it was me. That I was just like, ‘Well, you know, it does make sense, I am blonde'”.

“I think I came at it from a very honest place of saying I don’t think anyone meant any hard feelings and I don’t think that that’s what it is about”, she said. “We’re all just telling our truth and we’re all just trying to feel okay within our own situations, which are so unique because we’re all experiencing life from completely different perspectives at different points in our life with different people surrounding us. My situation is not one that everyone’s going through. So I understand that some people won’t see it from that side of things, and that’s okay”.

She continued, “‘Skin’—I can’t stress this enough—is not about one person. I’ve had so many different experiences in the last year in my personal life and in my career where there was a lot happening and I couldn’t do anything about it and I couldn’t say anything ’cause it seemed like either way people were mad at me”.
