  • Is Joshua Basset Gay? The Rumors About Bassett Sexual Orientation Unleashing The Latest In Entertainment

Now, just as everyone thought all the drama had died down, Sabrina has dropped her own track called Skin, and if you listen to the lyrics carefully, it addresses all of the Olivia Rodrigo drama. I don’t think most of gen z know who he is or have listened to his music. They may know of Olivia Rodrigos ex – but he’s more of a side character in that drama than someone people took the time to know. I’m honestly surprised I remember his name and I don’t know if I’ve listened to his music. If I wasn’t on these Reddit threads or twitter, I would have no idea who he is. Even the tie in with Olivia and all the “drama” is essentially Teen Beat/J-14 level gossip among those of us who are old enough to remember the Lindsay/Hilary/Aaron kerfuffle.

And celebrities doing it make sense because they end up in an article for their smallest moves. And a relationship is not something small thing, so people really don’t like to talk about it even they are in one. We did not mean to confuse you with all these, what you need to understand is, Joshua Bassett is single as of 2020. It mimics a lot of actual high school relationships, like Josh said.

Joshua Bassett Defends Ex Olivia Rodrigo From Angry Fans At Concert: Watch Obtain US

Just Jared Jr. discovered images of the duo smiling together at lunch with her sister, Sarah Carpenter, less than a month later. After both of them shared TikTok recordings of themselves costumed as Sharkboy and Lavagirl on Halloween 2020, relationship rumors between the two began to heat up. Olivia’s debut single and Josh’s brief close friendship/rumoured romance with Sabrina Carpenter was spun into a whole love triangle theory, but in case you’ve been living under a rock we’ve got all you need on that here. Both Olivia and Joshua have stayed silent on whether they were ever actually dating, but after she released ‘Drivers License’ fans were adamant it was about HSMTHTS co-star Josh.

“I know nothing about it, and it’s not my business to speak on it,” she said. After the release of her music, Skinny Dipping, Sabrina Carpenter posted on her TikTok that made fans question the unthinkable – Did she and Bassett breakup? The video featured audio from Lindsay Lohan that talked about how she was “recently single and was looking for someone to spend life with”.

Times that working with the Better Nate Than Ever star felt natural, recalling one of the instances in which he improvised to her while filming, leading her to get emotional. It was really neat … how well we really did work creatively together,” Bassett shared with the L.A. “Second letter is the love of my life,” he quipped before “Q” appeared on over his head. It’s not very rare celebrities don’t talk about their love-interest in public, not just them, even try to remain secretive about the relationship some time. Having said that, possibilities are always there that they might begin dating, and no doubt, we would love to see them as a couple. Well, apart from all the on-screen chemistry and speculations about their affair, Olivia and Joshua have clearly mentioned that they are just friends and not dating.

Bassett said he was eventually hospitalized with “unimaginable pain” on January 14, the day he released his own single “Lie Lie Lie.” Bassett shared that the scathing tracks, including the catchy “Good 4 U,” led to an intense amount of online bullying after they were released. Well, she dated Disney Channel actor Bradley Steven Perry back in 2014 for a little over a year. However, that’s the only public relationship she’s ever actually been in. According to fans, the original lyrics were actually “that brunette”, but people think it was changed to “that blonde” to be about Sabrina.

January 2021: Olivia releases “Drivers License”

Fans of the series were quick to put two and two together in August 2020 when Olivia posted a TikTok video with the caption “And that’s on failed relationships,” with the song All I Want from the High School Musical soundtrack. Bassett also told GQ that it “felt like a losing battle” attempting to combat the negative press. “If I try and defend myself in any way, it just felt impossible,” he said. It’s worth noting that he and Rodrigo haven’t spoken since “Drivers License” came out, but Bassett insists that he’s grown since then. I’m a completely different person now.” He added that it’s never been his intention to “expose people,” but the rumors became too much to bear.

Plus, Bassett promoted the new song on social media, so they’re seemingly friendly enough. Followed by a positive response from a few people who heard his songs, he gradually grew confident in music, and a year later, at the age of 16, he also started acting, appearing as a guest star on  Lethal Weapon in 2017. After Rodrigo put her song on TikTok, rumors began to circulate that “Driver’s License” was about Rodrigo’s failed relationship with fellow “HSMTMTS” co-star Joshua Bassett. Of course, some people became invested in “Sour” because of the drama, but the emotion and intensity that Rodrigo put into “Driver’s License” is what drove people to find out more about the song.

“It was eating me alive, and I couldn’t keep it in anymore,” he confessed. He then jokingly tapped again, saying “Second letter is the love of my life. Alright, ‘Q,’ I’ll take it.” Fans seemed to have taken the lighthearted joke well as they flooded his comments section with responses. TikTok’s official account on the app wrote “josh-” while another fan said “the first letter is a paid actor.” Another user chimed in, writing “YOU DID NOT,” and even influencer Tana Mongeau wrote, “i can’t believe i watched this for free.” As Joshua’s celebrity expanded, so did curiosity in his personal life, leading to romance speculations involving him and his co-star, Olivia Rodrigo. Olivia Rodrigo soared into the international spotlight at the start of 2021 thanks to her debut single, and with great recognition on a song all about heartbreak comes a lot of interest in her love life.

Following High School Musical and comments from both Olivia and Josh, many fans theorised that the pair dated throughout early 2020. However, sadly neither party ever officially confirmed their relationship. These two certainly appeared to grow closer post-HSM, with Olivia referring to Josh as her “best friend”.

“I didn’t want my EP to be overshadowed by some other narrative that people were trying to make,” Bassett told Billboard about his decision to remove the song. “I wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it,” Carpenter clarified in a since-deleted Instagram post. “I was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. so i was inspired to do what I usually do to cope, write something that I Vidaselect wish I could have told myself in the past.” In season 1, the musicians also co-wrote a song together titled “Just For a Moment,” which their characters sing in the finale. Times, Rodrigo opened up about her close bond with Bassett, noting that working together felt very natural. Fast forward to March 2022, when Olivia publicly commented on the matter for the first time outside of her music during an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show.

But considering Rodrigo’s age when she wrote many of the hit songs on “Sour,” she is off to as good of a start as any artist ever. Before Rodrigo’s music career took off, many “High School Musical” fans had speculated that she and Bassett were dating in real life. They seemingly broke up in the summer of 2020, when Rodrigo teased a rough draft of “Drivers License” on Instagram. In other, HSMTMTS drama-related news, fans were quick to compare Rodrigo’s and Bassett’s videos, both with night-driving scenes, hanging outside of car windows, and all in a purple neon hue. However, Bassett first shared the song on Instagram back in 2019 (below), long before any rumors concerning him and Olivia’s relationship.

After labelling his fellow popstar “hot”, Joshua said, “This is also my coming out video, I guess.” While Carpenter recently discussed a new song collab she worked on with Bassett, the HSMTMTS actor just revealed that he has cut “We Both Know” from his upcoming EP. Here’s everything you need to know about the song “Drivers License” and the drama behind the official breakup hit of 2021.

The reunion comes as a shock, given an interview Bassett gave late last year to GQ in which he said that although he had made an effort to speak with Rodrigo after her smash-hit single came out, she wouldn’t speak with him. Because I mean, hundreds, probably thousands of kids audition every year for a certain amount of roles, but they always find the cream of the crop. And now here we are in I guess the fourth crop, and they’re already superstars and they’re still on the show. “I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song,” Olivia then said in an interview with Billboard.
