Joshua Basset addressed the love triangle rumours connecting him to Olivia Rodrigo and Sabrina Carpenter in a recent interview.
He says that “people don’t know what they’re talking about.” Although he didn’t go into great detail on the matter he expressed how he felt about the rumours and added that he feels that the hardest thing he has had to do is “bite his tongue.” when it comes to these rumours.
The rumours of a love triangle between the three first sparked when Olivia Rodrigo released her massive hit “driver’s license”. Joshua and Olivia were rumoured to be dating off-screen at the time, but after Olivia mentioned a failed relationship in a TikTok video last August, it was speculated that they broke up. Last November Joshua posted videos on TikTok with Sabrina Carpenter leading some to believe that they were together. Further, Sabrina’s single seemed to contain lyrics that were believed to be alluding to Olivia’s mention of a “blonde” in her song.

Joshua in the interview encouraged fans to focus on the talent of these two musicians rather than their love lives. “Why don’t we focus on these women for who they are? Let’s focus on the art that they’re making and how great they are instead of their relationship to a boy.”, he said. Joshua also explained how he is still trying to figure out his sexuality and said that he wants to live his truth.
