Olivia Rodrigo shares reaction to 2024 Grammy nominations

Olivia Rodrigo has revealed that she was "screaming" over being nominated for six Grammy awards.

The 20-year-old hitmaker has revealed that she learned of her six Grammy nominations while she was hanging out with her mum and a friend.

"I was sitting next to my mom and my best friend Maddie on the couch and we're watching the livestream and we just started screaming," Olivia told Extra in a new interview. "I think the first person I called was my producer Dan (Nigro). He was so excited. He got nominated for Producer of the Year... It was a great, great day."

The Vampire singer then shared how she celebrated the exciting news.

"I told my friend... 'What do I do? Six Grammy nominations. This is so great,'" Olivia recalled. "I was like... 'You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to walk across the street and get a croissant,' and that's what I did."

Olivia's nominations include Album of the Year for her sophomore album Guts and Song of the Year for her track Vampire.

Elsewhere in the interview, Olivia discussed her new song, Can't Catch Me Now, which was created for the upcoming film, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes.

"It is specific for this film," the performer explained. "I got a chance to watch a rough cut of the movie a few months ago and I really fell in love with the character Lucy Gray. I think she is so strong and resilient... I wrote this song from her perspective. It was a really fun challenge for me as a songwriter."

She added, "Most of my songs are diaristic, so it was really cool to get to write something from the eyes of something else."

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is set for release on 17 November.
