Fans believed that Sabrina’s new song was in response to Olivia’s song. The song hears her telling her that she isn’t going to let her fellow Disney star’s words get under her skin. However, when Sabrina took to social media, she refuted those claims and said that the song is not calling out on a single person.
“I don’t want this to become an endless cycle”
“I wasn’t bothered by a few lines in a (magnificent) song; and wrote a diss track about it,” the actress and singer wrote on Instagram. (And)”I was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. 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.”
She further added that some lines address a specific situation; while another line addresses plenty of other experiences she has had this past year. The singer shared that it also shows that many things have gotten under her skin. She said, “I’m still learning to not give other people so much power over my feelings. I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing.”
Sabrina ended her post as she asked her fans to avoid directing hateful comments at anyone else because of the song. She said that she does not want this to become an endless cycle. The actress concluded, “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.”
