Olivia Rodrigo tells the BBC that being an actress improves her singing. "Acting definitely comes into play for me when I'm recording. I'm so into it, I will screw up my face and act out every word I'm singing. I think that makes the performance on the eventual record so much more impactful."

Dua Lipa tells Rolling Stone magazine that she's always loved performing “My parents never pushed me towards music.

We’re coming to do a show.’ It was something that I always loved to do.”
