There’s no escaping Sabrina Carpenter right now, though few—certainly not myself—are complaining. The singer just announced her upcoming album, cleverly named Short n’ Sweet (worth noting: she stands at 4’11”), and released a new single, “Please, Please, Please,” which has become the soundtrack of TikTok. Clips from her international tour are flooding the platform. And that’s certainly not all: The 25-year-old performer recently starred in a Skims campaign and publicly launched her relationship with Saltburn actor Barry Keoghan. These highlights are just a glimpse of her ever-growing influence, which Vanity Fair recently spotlighted in a newly released digital feature. See below for some standout tidbits about her confidence, social media, and more.

On social media…

Carpenter is no stranger to commenting on fans’ TikTok’s, and she regularly shares content with her 36 million Instagram followers. But despite appearances, the Disney Channel alum isn’t as into social media as it may seem. “Truthfully, if I wasn’t in this industry, I don’t think I would be on social media,” she admitted.” Maybe that surprises some people, but it doesn’t come as naturally to document my every move. I feel so much happier when I’m living in the moment.”

On finding confidence through music…

“The songs that really resonated with people were closest to my truest personality—in its silliest, most fun form or its most raw and vulnerable,” she told the outlet. “That gave me all the confidence to tap into myself a lot deeper. I don’t think of myself as a perpetually sad person, and my last album was dealing with a specific, solidified heartbreak. For the most part, I feel very much myself again, even in the moments where I’m nervous about the future. There’s a lot more uncertainty, which is fun to write because there’s a lot of what-ifs in that. I am keeping my eyes really open.”

On keeping her music personal…

“This is my diary,” she told Vanity Fair, referring to her music. “Once I put it out there, it’s for other people to interpret. I try to not tell people what a song is explicitly about. People don’t always know what’s going on inside the minds of anyone, let alone a young girl who’s navigating love and a lot of things for the first time.”
