Olivia Rodrigo talks about ‘strange’ gift from President Biden
Pop star Olivia Rodrigo appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday and discussed going to the White House over the summer to spread the word to the young generation about COVID-19 vaccines. Olivia said everybody at the white house was “so kind,” including President Biden and Dr. Fauci.

“The White House is just the coolest place. I was so nervous to go,” Olivia said. “But I, like, walked in there, and there is like all these plates that like George Washington used to eat his dinner on. And all of this crazy stuff. I was like, scared I was going to sneeze and break a priceless artifact. It was crazy. But I walked out, didn’t break anything. Thank god.”
Olivia spoke to Jimmy about the gifts she received from Biden. Because in a photo of her and the President, both he and Olivia wore a pair of his signature aviator sunglasses. So Jimmy Kimmel asked Olivia if that was something he gave her or she bought her own glasses.
“He gave them to me, actually,” Olivia said. “Actually a few gifts. He gave me those. He gave me some M&Ms, and he also gave me a shoehorn, which is strange.”
Olivia Rodrigo took to her 18.6m followers on Instagram after her meeting with President Biden and posted this photo along with the caption:
