Sabrina Carpenter breaks her silence

Sabrina Carpenter has taken to Instagram to share what her new song Skin is actually all about.

It's after fans speculated it was her response to Olivia Rodrigo's Drivers License.

Some believe Olivia's debut single is about her rumoured ex Joshua Bassett and his rumoured new gal, Sabrina.

The reason being, in the song, she references a, "blonde girl," who's, "so much older," than her.

Not only is Sabrina blonde, but she's also four years older than the High School Musical series star.

Skin

It wasn't long after this that Sabrina dropped Skin.

In it, she sings, "Maybe you didn't mean it/ Maybe, "blonde," was the only rhyme."

So understandably, fans assumed she was talking about Drivers License.

Sabrina has since clarified that her song isn't about one particular person.

She explained, 'i wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song and wrote a diss track about it.'

'i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons.'

'the song isn’t calling out one single person'

'so i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope, write something that i wish i could have told myself in the past.'

'people can only get to you if you give them the power to. and a lot of people were trying to get to me.'

'the song isn’t calling out one single person,' she insisted.

The Work It actress continued, 'some lines address a specific situation, while other lines address plenty of other experiences I’ve had this past year.'

'it also shows that many things have actually gotten under my skin..'

'and I’m still learning to not give other people so much power over my feelings.'

Sabrina wants the, 'hate,' to stop

She added, 'I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing.'

'i don’t want this to become an endless cycle so please don’t take this as an opportunity to send more hate anyone’s way.'

'lots of love to u all. thanks for letting me grow,' Sabrina finished.
