Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Magical’ Year Continues With Best New Artist VMA Win

MTV.com 13 September, 2021 - 08:21am

“This has been the most magical year of my life,” Olivia Rodrigo said in her first-ever Video Music Awards acceptance speech Sunday night (September 12) at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, dedicating the award to “all of the girls who write songs on their bedroom floor.” She was taking home the Moonperson for Song of the Year for her record-breaking smash hit “Drivers License,” but little did she know she’d be back on stage soon after as the 2021 Best New Artist.

The Sour singer-songwriter and VMA performer has, indeed, had a banner year with numerous chart-topping singles and a debut album that showcases her talent and skill as an artist. Though the LP is packed with coming-of-age stories and teenage memories, the raw authenticity and emotion behind every chorus and bridge have captured the hearts of fans across generations. From the relatable angst of “Brutal” to the catharsis of “Good 4 U” to the bittersweet “Hope Ur Ok,” her music captures the messiness and beauty of being alive, falling in and out of love with others and with yourself. As she told previously told MTV News, Sour reflects a time of her life when “everything that I had that was, like, really awesome and good in my life went really sour.”

Other Best New Artist nominees included The Kid Laroi, Saweetie, 24kGoldn, Giveon, and Polo G — all rising artists making a name for themselves and crafting art that speaks their truth and resonates with millions of fans. The allure of the Best New Artist category is that it’s not just about what the nominees have accomplished already; it’s a testament to the enduring impact their future work could have on the music industry and beyond. Doja Cat, who nabbed Push Best New Artist at the 2020 VMAs, went on to host this year’s awards show and continues to build upon her breakout success.

In her Best New Artist acceptance speech, Rodrigo thanked her fans for helping her get to where she is today, as well as fellow Best New Artist nominee The Kid Laroi: “I want to thank Laroi also, who inspires me every day to be a better artist. I love him so much. I just feel so grateful that I get to write music and make stuff that I love and call it my job, so thank you guys again for letting me do that.”

That’s the dream for countless artists, including the kids with big hearts pouring themselves into songs scrawled in their childhood bedrooms, so it seems fitting to end this with some songwriting advice Rodrigo shared with MTV News earlier this year when she was named the MTV Push artist for May. “I really think that more or less forcing yourself to write a song sometimes is really beneficial,” she said. “I think you can't rely on those lightning bolts of ideas to strike you all the time.” Take note, songwriters, and maybe someday you’ll have your own magical year.

Olivia Rodrigo Flew Into The VMAs On A Literal Cloud

MTV.com 13 September, 2021 - 08:21am

Olivia Rodrigo brought her Sour prom concert film to life at the 2021 VMAs on Sunday night (September 12), descending into Brooklyn’s Barclays Center riding an iridescent cloud as poofy as her dress. Her fellow partygoers, dapper in retro suits and flouncy dresses, waited below atop purple tables littered with party cups, as the telltale first notes of “Good 4 U” rang out.

When the five-time VMA nominee (and brand-new winner) touched down, she lent her “spicy Pisces” energy to the party, leading her crew into an enviable rager matching the heartbroken angst of the fan-favorite single. Welcome to Olivia’s pop-punk prom, where moshing and wild dancing are encouraged, along with a healthy splash of sparkles.

It’s been a massively successful year for the Best New Artist nominee, who’s also up for Artist of the Year, Best Pop for “Good 4 U,” and Song of the Year and Push Performance of the Year for her record-breaking “Drivers License.” Sour, a masterful coming-of-age story released last May via Geffen Records, showcases her talent and versatility as a songwriter. Fans could turn up the volume and scream-cry to the angry choruses of “Good 4 U” and “Brutal,” sit in their feelings for “Happier” and “Favorite Crime,” then experience the bittersweet wistfulness of “Hope Ur Ok.” As she told MTV News earlier this year, the LP reflects a time of her life when "everything that I had that was, like, really awesome and good in my life went really sour."

Her show-stopping VMA performance reflected these emotions — a wonderfully human, tangled mess of anger mixed with sadness mixed with confidence, especially during the climactic “like a damn sociopath” lyric in the bridge. Then confetti rained over the Barclays crowd, and the excitement was just too much for the poor camera to handle. The performance ended with a resounding smash, but VMA night is far from over.

Olivia Rodrigo's VMAs Gown Is Glamorous From the Front, but the Back Is Even Better

POPSUGAR 12 September, 2021 - 06:49pm

Olivia Rodrigo has arrived at her first VMAs red carpet! The 18-year-old singer is nominated for five awards at Sunday night's ceremony, and she certainly came dressed like a winner. While we're used to seeing the singer's fun Y2K outfits and cool street style, this may be the first time we've ever seen the star in such a mature, glamorous look.

Aligned with her nostalgic taste, her coral-magenta gown is by Atelier Versace, from the fashion house's spring/summer 2001 collection. The figure-hugging dress featured a standout mermaid train, as well as a stunning corset detail you have to see from the back. Olivia added some statement jewelry to match, wearing a pair of giant sparkly butterfly earrings in the same hue as her dress. See more photos of her gorgeous look ahead.

Olivia Rodrigo's Butterfly Earrings Matched Her Versace Dress at the VMAs

Yahoo Lifestyle 12 September, 2021 - 06:46pm

The "Driver's License" singer wore a fun look for her first-ever MTV Video Music Awards: a strapless coral Atelier Versace gown with a purple tulle overlay and short train. She accessorized the look with matching magenta butterfly dangle earrings, and wore her hair in loose waves.

Rodrigo might be just 18 years old, but she was nominated for five VMAs this year, including Best Artist, Best Song, and Best New Artist. In her red carpet interview, the Sour singer mentioned that among all the record-shattering moments of her breakout year, she also recently graduated from high school.

The new grad has already won her first award for PUSH Performance Artist of the Year, accepting her Moon Person during her red carpet interview.

The "Deja Vu" singer held her trophy for a second, giving it back while joking, "That is so heavy. I have no upper body strength," before thanking her fans for their support.

She opened up about creating her own style in an interview with GQ, admitting that she has a Pinterest board where she saves inspiration pictures. She also said that it's "f**king cool" to have a say in creating her image after years as a Disney star.

"I've been working on sets for so long, where you go and you're told what to say and told what to wear. The fact that when you're making a music video or something, people just come up to you and they're like, 'What do you want to make to the song that you wrote?' I'm like, 'You guys are going to give me resources and time to make whatever I want?' That's the coolest thing ever."

For someone so sour, this look is pretty sweet.

Did you see her subtle butterfly accessories?

They took a risk—and it paid off.

Vintage couture dresses and campy outfits were seen on many celebrities at the annual awards show.

I need to know the truth!!

She looks happy and healthy :)

Her blue-and-purple tutu dress was a serve.

And his speech included a heartfelt shoutout to Hailey.

From barely there outfits to wild ensembles, the VMAs have never ceased to impress when it came to fashion.

"As if" but make it Hot Topic.

SCREAMING!!! No literally, she is screaming.

It's safe to say she has had a good 2021.
