    joshua almost actually died during the beginning of 2021 due to stress. he went into septic shock and heart failure. it’s a miracle he survived.

      He was in the hospital when driver's license was released. He was also supposed to release his song at the same time. Her fans took his almost dying and said he was trying to ruin her release because he wanted the attention.

      yeah that's why in "set me free" he said "it's been a freaking year" and "wasn't sure I'd survive, never felt so weak" like Olivia obviously made all that stress for him and she acted like she didn't even care that joshua was dying.

    What I really like about Joshua is how he could easily hopped on the drama train when drivers license came out but he waited so that we would actually listen to him. And how you said, he was really mature and respectful and I think it shows the type of person he is.
    Set me free has to be my fav, it hits hard when he talks about not knowing he would survive when we know that he was at the hospital with a 30% survival chance at the same time he was recieving thousands of death theats.
    Also, 100% of the money earned with crisis is going to mental health organizations in perpetuity.

    Joshua actually doesn’t really care about his career, but rather the people he is able to connect with. So in Crisis, he’s talking about her ruining his life as her career move. For example, he went to a coffee shop, where an employee played Olivia songs until he left. Since then, he hasn’t felt comfortable in public areas.

    Set Me Free actually touches on some other topics such as Joshua recently coming to terms with the sexual assualt and domestic abuse he faced throughout his childhood, and around when Drivers Liscense was released he was in the hospital from heart failure due to stress. So yeah he really had a terrible year on top of everything with Olivia

      It was the day Lie Lie Lie was Released. And it was septic shock. It makes the body Shut down its organs. Its pretty awful and have happened to me also. I had a year where they regularily needed to check my lungs cause they were really not ok. I was hospitalised for 3 days. Had No idea what was going on when I Woke up at the hospital... And managed to talk myself out of the hospital after 3 days cause I was "stable" then.

      I think that it's even bigger than sour. ofc it is, partially, but also to the repercussion it had on *his* life. I mean people destroyed him bc of that album, I feel like he is responding to *that* more than to *what she said* in the album. and the song set me free is more of an anthem to move on from everything he had to go through (abuse, hospitalization, bullying, etc)

  • Sophia Blackthorn

    Joshua was sexually abused as a child and as a teen, and said that for him Set Me Free is an anthem for him and for the people who went through abuse. He said the song isn't about one person, it's about all the people who held power over him and hurt him during his life. I don't think Set Me Free is about any person or any specific situation. I think it's just about the feeling of being powerless when there are things happening and there's nothing you can do to stop it. So he's saying, you already took so much from me, but you don't get to take everything I am. You don't get to turn me into something I'm not. He's saying, I'm not as naive as I was before, and I won't break. He learned to protect himself because no one else would, to protect himself even from people who said that they loved him, from people who were supposed to love him (whether that means the family member who abused him, the friends who betrayed him, the 'friend' who took advantage of his innocence and abused him, maybe even a romantic partner who ended up being cruel, or any other person who hurt him throughout his life that we don't know about)
    We can't forget he's only 21 years old. He's been through so much and he's still so young. He's so strong, I love him. He almost died for a heart attack, he was on a hospital bed while everyone was hating on him. Btw, if you want a mature and sweet breakup song, listen to It'll Be Okay by Shawn Mendes!

    I love Sour, and I don't think there's anything fundamentally wrong with writing songs that are exaggerated or not 100% true. What I think is not right is writing songs that are not entirely true (I've seen Olivia's Deja Vu breakdown, and she takes a lot of artistic liberty and also doesn't write 100% of the lyrics alone) while everyone will know who these songs are supposed to be about, letting that person get all the hate and death threats over things that didn't necessarily happen and not speak out against it even after that person is literally in a hospital fighting for their life due to all the stress. I know it's probably not all on her. Maybe she was advised not to talk more about the situation, and she's new to all the fame and her actions having that much impact, but it still doesn't sit quite right with me. Anyway, Joshua's interview with Zach Sang is worth checking out, he speaks about a lot of heavy stuff even outside of this drama, and he seems like quite an inspiring guy.

      THIS. I've been a fan of all three of them since before 2021 (followed Sabrina since her debut album, discovered Josh & Olivia through HSMTMTS) and I continued to try separating their arts from the drama, supporting all of them and enjoying the songs, but with time goes and Olivia keeps not saying anything about it (just mentioning she "doesn't like her song being used to pit other people" but never addressing the hate the other parties continuously receiving), I'm disappointed. Now I can barely enjoy her songs anymore and will always speak up for any hate Sabrina/Josh keeps receiving because they both deserves so much better.

      Yh it’s kinda what annoys me when people say on practically all the videos about his songs, that neither of them did anything wrong and only deserve love and not hate. I obviously agree neither of them deserve hate, sending death threats is just crossing a line, but I do think Olivia should have done more. I mean how far does having the right to express yourself through music go when people are getting hurt this badly? And then you won’t even say anything about it? Not even privately to make sure they’re okay?

    The shit Josh went through in the beginning of the year when DL came out and continued to go through when her album came out always bothered me and I always felt really bad for the guy. He deserves this time to shine, not essentially clapping back but just telling his side of the story. It also always rubbed me the wrong way that Olivia never spoke out about the immense hate him and Sabrina got bcuz of her songs, it just seemed insensitive in my opinion.

    I think the craziest thing was that right after Driver's License came out, he ended up in the hospital with heart failure (from sepsis) and had a 30% chance of survival. The doctor pretty much said if he'd waited another day to go then he would've died, and he's only like 20. So he had to go through that and then come out of it while people were attacking him over the drama and deal with everything at once, which just seems so overwhelming... And it feels like everyone really glossed over that whole situation.

    The 'secret' was that she cheated. Josh said in an interview that he wrote it about 6 months before releasing so in about June/July and he wrote it the day after he found out she cheated (I think one of his friends told him). So she didn't know that he knows she cheated until this song came out, and I'm guessing the "you had me tricked for 16 months" means that they broke up 16 months prior to that and he never knew the real reason they broke up - if that makes sense.

    I absolutely agree with you that Joshua said what he wanted to say in the most respectful way possible!
    Apparently he was done writing these songs over six months ago but didn’t want to ruin Olivias spotlight so he waited so she could have her moment.
    In the begging of 2021 when driver’s license was released he got so many death threats and got so stressed out that he had a heart attack and had 30% of survival! He then focused on himself and after that Olivia apparently has never talked to him again.
    I could be wrong but I think Joshua in an interview said that Set Me Free is about when he was sexually abused as a kid. It could be about the break up, idk!

    I appreciate your takes on this. I do think his response was mature and he went the route of being vulnerable. Soft emotions vs. hard ones, showing tender sides of himself which takes a lot of courage when you’ve been attacked as hard as he has. He nearly died and I think it’s beautiful for him to show up in this way.

    Since now I know that set me free is about SA, it takes on a whole new meaning. However, I'm not happy about people making it about Olivia. Josh wrote this song from the heart about his trauma. Me having been sexually assaulted by a family member, I understand this much more. Even though my assault wasn't as serious as others' stories, I still had to do a lot to heal. Knowing that he probably went through worse trauma, this is his way of healing. He is showing you that you don't have a hold over me, and he is saying, 'Set me free, stop and let me be!'. But oh well I may be wrong....

    WOW I didn't think my suggestion would have so many votes! haha glad you made it and liked it :D I love Olivia's music and I these Joshua's new songs. We're all profiting on others pain unfortunately. Olivia aptly named her album SOUR for a reason. It's dismal how overblown the reactions towards Joshua were when everyone that ever had a break up should know better. And Olivia never spoke about it further than the lyrics she wrote. It was a choice she probably thought for the better even if it ended up not being. However none of them should bend over backwards to splash further into emotions or stories that they may not want to dwell further in. In the end, it's like always the age old "people suck"-problem .

    I’m so glad u reacted to Joshua. To get to know him a little better I would watch his Zach sang interview. It’s over an hour but I promise it’s completely worth it. Whenever u have ur own time to just sit down and watch it i highly recommend u do. I’m not going to go into all the drama and backstory just bc it’s not rlly necessary anymore and if u do watch the Zach sang interview you’ll kinda learn a little bit more. I do have some recommendations tho and I hope you’ll go into his discography. So here’s the recs:
    Feel something
    La live
    Only a matter or time
    Let you go from hsmtmts
    Heaven is you
    Telling myself
    Lie lie lie
    Do it all again
    Anyone else (the person filming the music video is actually Sabrina carpenter aka the girl also involved in the drama)
    Common sense
    I would also highly recommend reacting to Sabrina carpenter so here’s those recommendations as well:
    Honeymoon fades
    Sue me
    Skin (the song about the drama it’s directed towards everybody who hated on her)
    Skinny dipping
    Tell ‘em
    Diamonds are forever
    On purpose
    Take off all your cool
    She’s also releasing a song called fast times soon.
    Btw just so you know Sabrina is 22, josh is 21, and Olivia is about to be 19. Also lie lie lie and only a matter of time are not about the drama lie lie lie was written in 2019 and it’s about a Friend who lied basically and only a matter of time was written in 20 minutes and is actually about somebody who falsely accused him of sexual assault in 2020 and ended up admitting they lied. He has gone through SA which he talks about in the Zach sang interview.

    thank you for being so so respectful when it comes to this situation. if you want to read more about what he has been through, id recommend you take a look at the interview he did with GQ magazine and then watch his interview with zach sang, it'll give you more of an insight into what exactly happened and how he's been demonized by teenagers on social media when he's actually an amazing person

    I agree with everything you said, hat's why I generally don't really listen to the drama, but some people act like they know everything but it's NEVER the case, and then they think they know enough to be bullies.

    Yk I discovered him over the drama, i have been a fan of sabrina carpenter (idk if u have hear about her but she was part of this drama too, lol) so i was kind of aware about what was happening even tho i was trying to avoid it cause some fans of liv were going so far and insulting her and saying awful things, but when this songs appear i couldn't help it and hear it and wow i was so surprised because i didn't really like his music too much before but this three songs have been amazing. I love them so much, and i think set me free is such a beautiful song, I think u can relate that to so many scenarios, joshua also said the song was related to the SA the suffered when he was a kid wich make this song so sad and painful. I hope he feels better now

    I’m so happy you reacted to Joshua! his music is actually so amazing hope you do more reactions to him. He didn’t deserve all the death threats some people took it too far he ended up in a hospital with 30% chance of survival cause of all the stress. Man couldn’t do anything without people hating on him cause of Olivia’s songs. So yes I understand Olivia is allowed to write abt how she feels but I wish she would at least tell her fans to back off. They even send death threats to Sabrina Carpenter who people speculated was the blonde girl from driver’s license they went insane over that one line in the song. Honestly ridiculous. But you should also react to Sabrina Carpenter she has great music as well.

    honestly I think crisis is just as much about labels pushing these headlines and "sensational" stories about them as it is about olivia. even if it was a real situation and not big pr drama for promo of three young artists (which is oh too common from record labels) from what I can tell from all their music it was just a messy situation and no one person was really in the right or wrong. there was mistrust in the relationship, no way to tell what initially caused it, she thought he was into another girl and leading her on. she found another guy to comfort her and then ended it and when j did end up with that other girl she felt justified and angry. and fair enough but like rebounding with the person your ex was always jealous of isn't an unheard of move after a breakup. and s probs never intended to cause any kind of issue she just happened to like a guy who had a girlfriend and was there to comfort him through the break up.

    Just something to keep in mind olivia never said that her songs were about him. fans just ran with it and even went as far as sending him death threats. And not every song they write is about each other they’ve dated other ppl close to around the time they were “rumored” to be dating.

    I've never listened to him before, all I know is that he dated Olivia and that he's a fan of Harry's (Olivia too actually, but I mean as they should). I totally should listen to his music tho bc that was so sick I love his voice. Also as a fan of Olivia's I always thought he seemed very nice from a few videos I've seen of him and he really got a lot of hate for nothing but tbh Olivia's not the one to blame, some of her fans are just dumb like any fandom.

    For a bit more context (this is all in my opinion and how I interpreted the songs):
    Crisis is less about his relationship with Olivia I think it's more about how when he was receiving all of the hate and death threats that he was getting she didn't do anything to get her fans to stop. At Driver's License's peak, he had a really serious medical episode due to stress caused by the amount of attack he was receiving.
    Secret I'm pretty sure is actually about Sabrina instead of Olivia. I could be wrong but I just noticed that in the music video he specifically cast a blonde girl (🎶you're probably with that blonde girl🎶) and her haircut looks really similar to Sabrina's. (edit:nvm I just read all the replies to my comment lmao)
    And finally, He talked about Set Me Free in a really vulnerable interview it's actually about the domestic abuse that he experienced during his childhood. He got really personal and honest about how much the abuse he experienced affected him to this day.
    This trilogy is truly one of the most honest songwriting I've ever heard. He was so respectful in every way but. He also did not hold back his emotions.

      Josh and Sabrina are still friends I think he chose a blonde girl bc it relates to drivers license and plus the White car. Also he says “good for you fooling everyone” and “when your woe is me stops working I bet your songs won’t sound the same” meaning when her playing the Victim stops working her songs won’t sound the same. And also he and Sabrina didn’t date for 16 months and have barely known each other for 16 months.

      Secret is not about Sabrina, this is a three part story. If you watch the music video, you’ll see the clues like white car, front yard and blonde girl. Also “good 4u foolin everyone” and “ when woe is me stops working, i bet ur songs wont sound the same” lyrics. In addition to those, Sabrina’s older sister Sarah has been working with Joshua since Telling Myself music video and she is also co-creative director of these 3 one-shot music videos.
