If you’re seeing multiple celebrities unboxing some Sour swag from Olivia Rodrigo, don’t worry: You’re not experiencing “Deja Vu.” The singer/songwriter just wanted to spread the word far and wide about her debut album, so she sent some very special gift boxes to a few famous friends.
The latest recipient is Gwen Stefani, who took to Instagram on Friday (June 4) to unbox her gift and share a personal letter from the “Drivers License” singer. “I just got this amazing, sweetest, kindest note,” Stefani says on her Stories, adding, “I don’t know if I’m supposed to post it, but I’m going to.” In the note, Rodrigo tells the No Doubt frontwoman: “I absolutely adore you. I’ve looked up to you since I was a little girl. I think your songwriting is so powerful & unique. Your music is one of the reasons I became a songwriter. I just put out my 1st album and I wanted to give you a few SOUR tingz lol. Thank you for everything you’ve done for girls like me. You’re truly my hero.”
Another pal who took to social media to show off the goodies included Joe Jonas, who tagged his wife, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, on his Instagram Stories alongside a video captioned: “Look what @OliviaRodrigo sent us!” The clip showed off Olivia-branded Sour Patch Kids, a box of tissues (“Important. Crying while listening to this music,” Joe says), “Drivers License” bumper stickers, “Deja Vu” candy hearts, a notebook, some T-shirts, Sour safety-pin earrings and his-and-hers hoodies.
Kim Kardashian also showed off the Sour box on her Instagram Stories, which came with a handwritten note from Rodrigo. “How cute is Olivia Rodrigo?” Kardashian asks. “I can’t wait for her album. You guys know I love ‘Drivers License.'” Well, her 7-year-old daughter North took issue with that statement, sassily chiming in, “You never listen to it.” Kim begged to differ, even pulling her 5-year-old Saint into it: “Yes I do! I listen to it all the time! Stop, North. Saint, don’t we listen to it in the car all the time?”
Another lucky recipient was Tate McRae, who received a handwritten note as well, in which Olivia tells the “You Broke Me First” singer, “I’m obsessed with you!” McRae returned the love, captioning her Instagram story: “Stop it @OliviaRodrigo i love you so much … congrats on ur album.” Ben Platt showed off his Sour trunk too, with his dog Georgie posing nearby. “Thank u for the treats sweet @OliviaRodrigo,” Platt wrote on the pic.
