Olivia Rodrigo celebrated the release of her long-awaited sophomore album Guts on Tuesday night (Oct. 3), when she graced the stage at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles for a brief performance as well as an intimate, in depth conversation with acclaimed songwriter and producer Linda Perry.

According to Variety, the 20-year-old superstar performed stripped back, solo versions of her Guts tracks “Vampire,” “Making the Bed” and “Lacy.”

“If I don’t write songs, I really don’t feel like myself,” Rodrigo said during her conversation with Perry, per the publication. “It’s the way that I process everything. It’s the way I decide how I feel about the world. It just makes me happy. It makes me angry. It’s everything to me… I think there’s definitely a lot of darkness in me, as there is with anyone. I’ve always loved how, in writing melodies and hooks and lyrics, you can express that in a way that isn’t easily expressible in everyday life. Sometimes people meet me and get to know me and they’re always like, ‘Wow, you’re such a happy bubbly girl, [but] you write such depressing-ass songs.’ But I think songwriting is a medium for you to express the inexpressible and just figure out how you feel. And that’s why I’ve always loved it, ever since I was a kid.”

Guts, which was released on Sept. 8, debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart (dated Sept. 23), scoring the singer-songwriter her second No. 1 set, following her 2021 debut Sour.
