Olivia Rodrigo celebrated turning 21 in style.

On the opening night of her Guts World Tour — which kicked off on Friday, February 23, in Palm Desert, California — Rodrigo shared with the crowd that, in honor of her 21st birthday, she went to a gas station to buy beer and cigarettes. However, she revealed that she didn’t drink or smoke her purchases — it was simply a right of passage.

“I went to the gas station the other day and bought a pack of cigarettes and a six pack of beer,” she told the crowd, per footage on TikTok. “I promise I didn’t consume it, but I just bought it because I f–king could.”

She concluded, “Anyway, all this to say that I think growing up isn’t so scary after all and life just kind of gets better at the end.”
