Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Vampire’ Takes Inspiration From Taylor Swift: Leaving a Lasting Impression – The Gentleman Report


Now at the age of 20, Rodrigo is poised to release her second album, “Guts,” in September. While her smash hit “Drivers License” and the ensuing drama became the subject of speculation in the tabloids, the song itself did not directly address the public narrative.

However, in her latest track “Vampire,” Rodrigo takes a different approach. She delves into the concept of glamour or someone’s attempt to appear glamorous, singing lyrics like: “Look at you, cool guy, you got it/I see the parties and the diamonds sometimes when I close my eyes/Six months of torture you sold as some forbidden paradise.”

It is possible that the song alludes to Rodrigo’s rumored ex-boyfriend, Zack Bia, a prominent figure in the Los Angeles nightlife scene. The shift in style between the first and second parts of the song may be intentional, as it transitions into a coffeehouse EDM sound, potentially drawing parallels to Bia’s career as a producer and DJ. This shift is reminiscent of the blues-pop style that Taylor Swift incorporated in her song “Dear John.”

The song delves into the transactional nature of the relationship itself. Rodrigo passionately sings, “The way you sold me for parts/As you sunk your teeth into me,” before delivering the devastating insult of labeling her ex as a “fame [expletive].” Although this insult typically begins with the word “star” instead of “fame,” Rodrigo acknowledges that the toxicity of fame can be more destructive than any individual, and someone who craves fame may not value individuality at all.

In “Drivers License,” Rodrigo still viewed the other woman as an adversary or a source of tension. However, in “Vampire,” she recognizes where true loyalties lie, showcasing an emerging feminist perspective. She finds solidarity with her ex’s other partners and criticizes herself for ever believing she was the exception, singing, “Every girl I ever talked to told me you were bad, bad news/You called them crazy, God, I hate the way I called ’em crazy too.”
