  • Olivia Rodrigo recently discussed her trip to the White House on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

  • She revealed that President Joe Biden gave her Aviator sunglasses, M&M's, and a shoehorn.

  • The "Good 4 U" singer called the shoehorn gift "strange," but also said she still has it.

Olivia Rodrigo recently opened up about her trip the White House, where she received several gifts from President Joe Biden.

Back in July, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter was invited to meet with the president and Dr. Fauci as part of the Biden administration's effort to increase vaccinations among young people.

"It was such an honor to go, especially to support such an important cause that I feel so passionately about," Rodrigo said during a Tuesday appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

"Everyone was just so kind," she continued, adding that she was "so nervous to go."

"I walked in there and there's all these plates that like, George Washington used to eat his dinner on and all of this crazy stuff," she said, laughing. "I was just scared that I was going to sneeze and break a priceless artifact. It was crazy."

Kimmel then showed a photo of Rodrigo and Biden posing together, wearing matching Aviator sunglasses. He asked Rodrigo if she brought the accessory herself, or if the president hands them out to visitors.

"He gave them to me, actually," she replied. "He gave me a few gifts. He gave me those, he gave me some M&Ms, and he also gave me a shoehorn, which was strange."

When Kimmel inquired about the shoehorn, Rodrigo revealed that it had "the presidential emblem" on it.

"I'm serious! It's at my house," she added.

"Well, if you ever thought Joe Biden was too old to be president, now we know he is," Kimmel joked. "He's giving out shoehorns."

Rodrigo also took the stage at "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to perform her new single, "Traitor," the second track from her acclaimed debut album "Sour."

Insider previously praised the song as "wily and skillful" in our "Sour" review, which awarded the album a 9.5 out of 10, the highest score we've awarded in 2021 so far.
