“That blond woman” from “Drivers License” seems to have damaged her silence on Olivia Rodrigo’s runaway hit.

On Thursday night time’s episode of “Excessive College Musical: The Musical: The Drama,” singer-actress Sabrina Carpenter launched a buzzy new tune, titled “Pores and skin,” that appears to double as a response to fellow Disney star Rodrigo’s debut single about getting her license and dealing with heartbreak.

For the few who haven’t been monitoring this objectively juicy saga: Followers speculate that Rodrigo, 17, penned her chart-topping ballad about “Excessive College Musical: The Musical: The Collection” costar Joshua Bassett, who supposedly broke her coronary heart after they supposedly dated behind the scenes of their Disney+ collection.

Bassett, 20, has since been linked to “Lady Meets World” alum Carpenter, who has blond hair and, at age 21, is 4 years Rodrigo’s senior.

“And also you’re in all probability with that blond woman / Who all the time made me doubt,” Rodrigo sings on “Drivers License.” “She’s a lot older than me / She’s all the pieces I’m insecure about.”

In flip, followers suspect that Carpenter wrote “Pores and skin” in an try to reclaim the narrative surrounding her rumored relationship with Bassett — and to piggyback on Rodrigo’s viral success. Completely none of this has been confirmed, thoughts you, however the tea is piping scorching and the proof is tough to disregard:

“Perhaps we may have been mates / If I met you in one other life / Perhaps then we may fake there’s no gravity within the phrases we write,” Carpenter sings on “Pores and skin.” “Perhaps you didn’t imply it / Perhaps blond was the one rhyme / The one rhyme.”

Perhaps blond was the one rhyme. Delicate!

If that’s not sufficient to transform you right into a Disney love triangle conspiracy theorist, settle in, as a result of we haven’t even gotten to the refrain but.

“I’m joyful and also you hate it, hate it, oh,” Carpenter continues on the monitor. “And I’m not asking you to let it go / However you been telling your aspect / So I’ll be telling mine / You may attempt to get underneath my, underneath my, underneath my pores and skin / Whereas he’s on mine / Yeah on my, on my, on my pores and skin / I want you knew that even you may’t get underneath my pores and skin if I don’t allow you to in.”
