Hollywood stars and singers have always had very cordial relations with the White House. Former President Barack Obama invited a slew of celebrites to his official residence, including Beyonce, Rihanna, Oprah Winfrey, Idris Alba and George Clooney to mention a few.
Kim Kardashian visited Donald Trump when he was at the White House, while Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have been ardent fans of Hillary Clinton.
Now the latest star to get VIP treatment at the White House is American singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose album ‘Sour’ has topped the charts.

The American singer delivered a speech at the White House to encourage young people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The 18-year-old singer and actress was a scorcher with a Chanel suit and white platform shoes in the press briefing room.
In a light-hearted vein, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki introduced Rodrigo to the media by referring to her humdinger Drivers License, saying she "traversed red lights and stop signs to see us."
The White House roped in the services of Rodrigo, who has millions of followers on social media, to give a fillip to declining vaccination rates among youth.
