Zack Bia Denies Olivia Rodrigo’s 'Vampire' Is About Him Amid Fan Rumors

We’re like “Dude, nice try”

It’s a big week for Olivia Rodrigo. Tickets for her Guts World Tour are about to go on sale, her hit single “Vampire” is #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and her ex is now claiming to the media that “Vampire” is not about him. 

Fans raised their eyebrows a bit when the “Get Him Back” singer dated 27 year old DJ Zack Bia last year, but their relationship was short-lived. In a recent interview with GQ, Bia was directly asked about the internet’s allegations that “Vampire” was about him.

Bia denied the rumors, explaining that he did not believe his and Rodrigo’s parting was break-up track worthy. 

“I don’t think it’s about me. I think the internet just ran with it,” explained the nightlife DJ. “Look, I’m in the industry, so I know how a song gets made. We hung out, we’re both busy, and we ended up not furthering our relationship. There was never any drama, you know?”

However, a source close to Rodrigo countered Bia’s claims, telling GQ, “I don’t know if that’s exactly true.” 

Fire quickly spread around the rumor upon the song’s release when Bia’s ex Madison Beer responded to the song. Beer also has a song rumored to be about Bia entitled “Selfish.” The pop singer took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to post “thank you miss Olivia <3.” 

The post was later deleted, but when fans asked the “Reckless” singer what she thought of “Vampire,” she replied with “Fucking beautiful. Truly think it’s so special and showcases her growth so amazingly. Really Really impressive.”

Bia also addressed Beer’s comments in his GQ interview, claiming that she reached out about the backlash her comments caused.

 “There’s so much love there,” he said. “She’s someone who’s so instrumental in my life, and I still treat as family. Like, she and my mom are still cool.”

Bia’s compliments did not end with Beer as he also shared nothing but love towards his more recent ex. When talking about Rodrigo’s latest work, he said “The song’s so big and so awesome. Look, a heartbreak song for the summertime, it’s an undefeated formula. […] I think Olivia is a generational songwriter. I think she’s a generational talent. I’m always just proud of her continued accomplishments.”

Bia is playing the diplomatic and innocent card, but fans are still suspicious claiming even more songs off of Guts are about him. To sum it up via an Olivia Rodrigo lyric from her focus track “Get Him Back,” everyone is thinking “Dude, nice try.”
