    Rodrigo also said that she loves the song, a part of Eilish’s album ‘Happier Than Ever‘. The song is about protecting a young ingénue from exploitation, hinting at the infamous challenge that young rising stars in Hollywood face.

    In an interview earlier, Eilish had said she has protective feelings towards Rodrigo, who reciprocated the sentiment. “Olivia was getting big, and she was just, like, this little dainty child,” the Grammy-winning artist told The LA Times.

    I felt so nervous. I was worried about her. She came up in that acting world, and people are so weird. I don’t know — I just felt very protective over her,” she said. “I have a song called ‘Goldwing’ from my last album that’s kind of about her. I’ve never said that to anyone,” she said.
