“I’m grateful for the people who like me for me, and who keep me separated from all the noise and gossip or what people say about me on social media. That has always been a top priority,” says the teenager.

“It’s funny how recognition changes everything and nothing in your life.”

She also shared that the problems she had a year ago are still the problems she has now.

“Things that brought me joy a year ago are still the things that bring me joy now. It’s just another aspect of life that you have to deal with, but it doesn’t change who you are as a person,” she added.

But the Good 4 U singer admitted it was ‘surprising’ to see who ‘sincerely supported’ [her]and who isn’t’ after she became a household name.

She added: “Sometimes when you have a lot of success very quickly, it can scare people and make people feel different. That was interesting to learn. I’m figuring it all out.’

And Olivia thinks her “unique” upbringing also helped her cope with fame, as did having parents who keep her going.

She said, “My mother is a teacher and my father is a therapist. In high school, I was home-schooled and started working on sets, adding to the uniqueness of my upbringing.

“I spent most of the time surrounded by 45-year-old men on a set and not with kids my own age in a school. But I am fortunate to have wonderful friends and family who have kept me going.

“My parents take all this craziness in the best way.

“They always say, ‘We’re so proud of you and all these achievements are incredible, but we’d be just as proud of you if you were in school in your hometown.’ They are the best and that is a very important attitude to have.”
