Olivia Rodrigo is coming for Taylor Swift’s Easter egg crown.
Fans of the “Vampire” singer are dissecting the lyrics to her new album, “Guts,” in an attempt to decipher who inspired each track.
“Lacy,” the obsessive fourth song on Rodrigo’s sophomore record, features her singing about a “sweet, sexy angel” by whom she is intimidated.
Much like Swift has been doing for decades, the “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star drops hints about the woman in question, which has led many social media users to theorize it is her pal Gracie Abrams.
Rodrigo sings that her muse “wears ribbons in her hair,” as Abrams often does, and “got the one thing” that she “wants,” which could refer to Abrams’ friendship with Swift and the fact that she was tapped to open for the pop superstar’s blockbuster Eras Tour.
Rodrigo, 20, had been a vocal supporter of Swift, 33, until July 2021 when she had to give the “Lavender Haze” singer a songwriting credit on her track “Deja Vu.”
The Disney actress previously revealed that the single off her debut album, “Sour,” was loosely inspired by Swift’s fan favorite “Cruel Summer.” However, she has since been forced to split half of her royalties with the “Shake It Off” songstress and co-writers Jack Antonoff and St. Vincent.
Since then, Abrams, 24, has grown close to Swift, while Rodrigo’s relationship with the international icon is rumored to have soured.
Another fan theory suggests “Lacy” is about Sabrina Carpenter, whom Swift described as a “sweet angel princess” when she announced that the “Girl Meets World” star would be joining the international leg of her Eras Tour.
“Brigitte Bardot, starlet, angel face, ribbons…. It screams Sabrina carpenter,” one fan wrote on TikTok, referencing the lyric “Bardot reincarnatе.”
In addition to Carpenter’s resemblance to the iconic French actress, she has a history with Rodrigo, having become entangled in a love triangle with their mutual ex, Joshua Bassett.
Rodrigo’s record-breaking ballad “Drivers License” was believed to be inspired by Bassett, 22, moving on from her with Carpenter, 24, and the “Clouds” actress responded to the ensuing media circus with her own track “Skin.”

Another fan speculated that the “Lacy” lyric “I feel your compliments likе bullets on skin” supports the hypothesis that the song is about Carpenter.
“i feel your compliments like bullets on SKIN” sabrina’s song skin that is a reply to drivers license saying it wasn’t olivia’s fault,” they wrote.
Others believe the track could have been inspired by multiple people.
“have u guys thought that it could be about both sabrina and gracie? and not one of them specifically 😭,” one listener asked, while another chimed in, “i think lacy is a mix of being about gracie and sabrina.”
A third theory tosses Madison Beer’s name in the ring, as she also bears a resemblance to Bardot.
“I’m with Madison Beer on this, it makes perfect sense,” one person wrote of the “Melodies” singer, 24.
Another chimed in, “I feel like it’s all three of them.”
