Rodrigo gets some advice on dating and marriage from a young boy as she promotes her Sophomore album, 'GUTS.'
Olivia Rodrigo, at present, is basking in the success of her Sophomore album "Guts" and has been heavily promoting it across all platforms. During one such promotional event, she joined the web series Recess Therapy, which features Julian Shapiro-Barnum interviewing children from the ages of 2 to 9. In these episodes, Shapiro-Barnum asks kids questions about life and their perspective on everything around them. In the latest episode, he talked with two children Miles and Olivia who were later joined by the 20-year-old pop star.

Rodrigo might be a pop star, but this interview was all about the kids and what they wanted. Miles, one of the kids, wanted to talk about "love," so everyone on the show went ahead and talked about that. Rodrigo wasn't too unhappy about it, as love is one of the main themes of her sophomore album. Miles had an adorable definition of love, "Love it so much, you want to marry it." Rodrigo said that she had never experienced a love so deep that she would want to decide on marriage. It led to the sweetest thing ever, as Miles put his hand on Rodrigo's knees and said earnestly, "I hope you'll find love."
However, there are some rules that she needs to follow, as Miles made it clear that you cannot just marry anyone. "Cousins" are a no-go, according to him. He backs his assertion by stating that if one marries their cousin, "something bad happens to your body." He also describes some red flags that people should never ignore, "It cannot have bags and it's running, or a suitcase and is running very fast into stores and is not paying." Shapiro-Barnum translated his message, "You do not want people who have baggage or steal." Fair point. Ultimately, Miles believes the most important quality that a partner should have is kindness. He asks Rodrigo to always pick a person who has that quality when she wants to marry.

Seems like it is only Rodrigo who needs dating suggestions, as Miles has his whole life figured out. He knows who he wants to marry. The contenders of his heart are Jack A and Zoey. For now, he has settled on Zoey. It was a match made in "Playground Heaven." Olivia appreciated the pearls of knowledge she got from the interview. She ended by saying, "You're the coolest Miles. I'm so happy that I got to meet you." They put the bow to the interaction with a sweet hug.
At last came Olivia, who is a huge fan of Rodrigo. When the singer arrived on set, Olivia was perplexed, as she did not expect her. At first, she could not even recognize the singer in the flesh, but after finally coming to her senses, she was beyond ecstatic. When they asked her whether she was a big fan, she screamed, "YES, 100%." Olivia shared her views about the album with Rodrigo, "It is one of the best albums you have come out with."
Olivia did not stop her praises about the album and went on to say, "It makes me feel like stronger, every time I listen to it. I feel like I would achieve more things than I would've done without listening to it." Rodrigo and Olivia then, belted out the popular single, "good 4 u." "Guts" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this month.
