Olivia Rodrigo reacted to her 7 Grammy Award nominations on Instagram — ‘many dreams have come true for me this year’
Rodrigo received well-wishes from fans, who congratulated her on the recognition from the Recording Academy. Rodrigo took to Instagram following the announcement, posting a picture of a congratulatory cake and the seven nominations she received.
“When I was younger, my family lived a few blocks from the Staples Center, where the Grammys took place every year,” Rodrigo captioned the post. “I would always walk outside the arena and look at the plaques on the ground with all the winners’ names in wide-eyed wonder.”
“I went to the Grammy museum so many of my free weekends because I was so fascinated by the history of the show and all of the incredible musicians that made it up,” she continued. “Many dreams have come true for me this year, but this one is probably the most meaningful.”
