Olivia RodrigoOlivia Rodrigo: Why it took 4 attempts to get her driver’s license

Olivia Rodrigo linked up with PopCrush Nights hosts Kayla Thomas and Nicole Murray on air March 3, where she revealed the hilarious story of how she got her actual driver's license.

Even though her debut hit single is called "drivers license," the 18-year-old admitted that she didn't exactly pass her driving test on the first try. In fact, it took her four attempts to get her license!

But it wasn't all her fault: The first two times she was scheduled for her driving exam she had to cancel her test—first due to COVID-19 and then due to a scheduling conflict with filming schedule for High School Musical The Musical: The Series. Her third try was an all-around disaster, though. "I finally get there and I fly out from Utah to L.A. just to take the test because I had to take it in California. I'm sitting in the car and the guy like comes by and he's checking [everything]."

When they realized that the horn on the car, which belonged to her mom, didn't work, they had to stop the test. "I go to honk it and the horn doesn't work on my mom's car," she recalled, explaining that her mother is the calmest driver that she knows, so it made sense that she might not know it wasn't working. Frustratingly, the test proctor told Rodrigo that the car was legally unsafe and that she couldn't take the test.

Thankfully, by her fourth attempt to take the exam, her car was in working order and she aced her driving test.

Considering Rodrigo's meteoric rise to fame this year, many publications have labeled the Disney star the "It Girl" of 2021. But how does Rodrigo feel about the title?

"That's crazy," she said. "I haven't heard that before. That's super cool and if they want to call me that, that's amazing. I don't know, I guess I don't think of myself as that but that's really flattering."

Justin Bieber Rings In Justice

The music video begins with Bieber driving a motorcycle, being chased by the police. Once the authorities finally catch up to him, an officer shoots him. Bieber manages to drive away before the video takes viewers back to a time prior to the tense chase.

Viewers witness Bieber in a relationship with a woman. The scene cuts to a doctor's office where she is given heartbreaking test results before flashing to him waiting in a hospital. We then see Bieber at home in his garage, spray painting a plastic toy water gun to make it look like a legitimate gun. He then visits a bank where he hands a bank teller a note that reads, "I don't wanna hurt anybody but I will if I have to."

We're led to believe he is doing this for his wife's medical bills as he sings the lyrics "I need you to hold on / Heaven is a place not too far away."

Bieber spoke about the new direction that his music will take with his next album. "In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet we all crave healing and justice for humanity," he explained. "In creating this album my goal is to make music that will provide comfort, to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone."

Learn the full Justin Bieber "Hold On" lyrics, below.

[Verse 1]
You know you can call me if you need someone

I'll pick up the pieces if you come undone

Painting stars up on your ceiling cause you

Wish that you could find some feeling, yeah, ya

You know you can call me if you need someone

I need you to hold on

Heaven is a place not too far away

We all know I should be the one to say we all make mistakes

(We all make mistakes)

Take my hand and hold on

Tell me everything that you need to say

Cause I know how it feels to be someone

Feels to be someone who loses their way
