In an exclusive chat with PopCrush Nights host Donny Meacham, Olivia Rodrigo gives some insight on the meaning behind her new hit single, "vampire."

Meacham notes that when he first heard the song, he picked up that it's about "seeing all the red flags" in a relationship, but unfortunately "seeing all the red flags too late."

When asked about the red flags she has a hard time recognizing, Rodrigo laughs and declares, "All of them."

The 20-year-old California native notes she loves "seeing the best in people," so when her friends point out that a guy she's into might have a "bad reputation," she often sees past it.

"'He's different, you don't know them,'" Rodrigo jokes that she tells them, adding she's "growing out of that now."

"I've definitely done that in my past and that's sort of what the song is about," she tells PopCrush Nights.
