With an Instagram following comprising 33 million fans, actress and singer Sabrina Carpenter has enjoyed an iconic career of almost 13 years, earning her a respectable net worth and the love of a dedicated fandom. With a quippy personality that has garnered laughs just as easily as it has raised eyebrows, she is a force to be reckoned with. Currently on the road with Taylor Swift, she has made headlines as the opening act of the Eras tour, with appearances in Latin America and Australia under her belt. Ahead of her Singapore arrival, where she will once again open for Taylor Swift, here are some things you need to know about Sabrina Carpenter, from her net worth to her new house, as well as her drama and beef with Guts singer Olivia Rodrigo.

A prodigy in acting and singing with humble origins on YouTube, Sabrina Carpenter is on the fast track to superstardom and the star of her career is shining brighter than ever. In the lead-up to her arrival in Singapore, where she is set to open the highly anticipated Eras tour for pop culture phenomenon Taylor Swift, the Skin singer is making massive waves, setting the stage for a fiery performance to remember.

From YouTube beginnings to The Next Miley Cyrus Project

Born on May 11 1999, Sabrina Annlynn Carpenter is a Pennsylvanian native, and was raised in East Greenville by her parents David and Elizabeth Carpenter alongside three older sisters. A homeschooled child, Carpenter enrolled in vocal lessons at age six, where she received training from the same vocal coach who had once taught her mother. If one thing was certain, it was this: Sabrina Carpenter wanted to sing, and sing she did.

“We have (a) video of me in my kitchen. I was so young and was singing God Bless America,” Carpenter recalls, speaking on the earliest days of her love affair with music. “I know a lot of people don’t know what they want to do when they’re that young, but I had a pretty good idea, and my heart was pretty much set on it.”

With her love of the performing arts thus established, Carpenter set about building the foundation of her now-iconic career. Most notably, (and amusingly true to the Carpenter family name) her father contributed to her success by building her a recording studio, where she could practise to her heart’s content.

Carpenter was certainly in no want of charm and charisma; at the tender young age of 10, the Taurian native set up a YouTube channel where she shared videos of herself belting out songs from vocal powerhouses Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele.

That same year, she joined a singing competition held by Flowers singer Miley Cyrus, The Next Miley Cyrus Project. While Carpenter ended up taking third place, the experience of meeting Cyrus further fuelled her passion for performing, and she has since gone on to reminisce with gratitude and fondness, saying, “I learned about performing, making videos, and I met so many people. I realised this was something I was very passionate about.”

Actress, singer, and controversial Carpenter

Two years later in 2011, a 12-year-old Sabrina Carpenter made her acting debut on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. By then, she had also secured a recurring role on The Goodwin Games (2013), an eight-episode sitcom series where she starred notable names including T.J. Miller (How To Train Your Dragon) and Scott Foley (Grey’s Anatomy). However, it was not until 2014 that Carpenter would land her career-making role as Maya Hart on Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World.

Following the global success of the Disney channel program, Carpenter starred in several feature movies, including The Hate U Give (2018), The Short History of the Long Road (2019), Tall Girl (2019), and Work It (2020), which she also executive produced.

Further driving home that her vocal work is key to her success, Carpenter has also thrived in voice acting roles, lending her iconic ‘appealing soprano’ cadence to Disney channel animated characters like Princess Vivian in Sofia The First (2012 – 2018) and Melissa Chase in Milo Murphy’s Law (2016 – 2019). She has also made her Broadway debut for the stage adaptation of Mean Girls, where she briefly starred as Cady Heron alongside Reneé Rapp’s Regina George.

Sadly, with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, all stage activities were halted, and so faded Carpenter’s short-lived Broadway appearance.

In 2014, after signing with Hollywood Records, Carpenter released her debut single Can’t Blame A Girl For Trying, following it up with an EP of the same name. One year later, she released her debut studio album Eyes Wide Open — but she didn’t stop there. Hungry to make a bigger splash in the industry, Carpenter followed up the release with yet another studio album, EVOLution, in 2016.

One more album would follow in the form of Singular, which was split into two acts; Singular: Act I debuted on November 9 2018, and Singular: Act II was released the following year on July 19 2019. Both these albums found critical success and included her now-famous hits like Almost Love, Paris, Mona Lisa, Sue Me, Pushing 20, Exhale, Looking At Me, and In My Bed.

Carpenter eventually hopped labels, signing with Island Records in 2021 where she released Skin, her first single to chart in the US Billboard Hot 100. In 2022, she released her fifth studio album Emails I Can’t Send. Peaking at number 23 on the Billboard 200, this album is Carpenter’s current highest-charting album in the United States, with singles Nonsense and Feather landing, respectively, on numbers 55 and 37 on the Hot 100.

Despite enjoying the highest highs of success, Sabrina Carpenter is not without her own fair share of controversy and drama. Last October, the singer came under fire after the music video for Feather was released, sparking widespread criticism among Catholic Christians. The music video, which was filmed in the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in Brooklyn, New York City, featured a coquettish Carpenter dancing inside the church, the altar shrouded in markedly un-Christian decorations with vivid pastel coffins propped up as part of the set.

In the wake of the outrage, Brooklyn Bishop Robert Brennan released a statement to address the issue, stating that he was “appalled” and that he would initiate investigations on the subject. In response, Carpenter expressed that advance permission had been granted, and that it was all okay because “Jesus was a carpenter.”

Sabrina Carpenter’s musical drama and beef with Olivia Rodrigo

Her Feather-related controversy aside, Sabrina Carpenter has also been at the centre of beef and drama with Can’t Catch Me Now singer Olivia Rodrigo. In a back-to-back battle of pointed lyrics and cynical side-eyes that makes an absolute mockery of the Bechdel test, the two women’s reported beef centres their ties to High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star Joshua Bassett.

The Sabrina Carpenter and Olivia Rodrigo drama has its roots in 2020. During this time, fans believed that Rodrigo had been in a relationship with Bassett, despite the couple never officially confirming nor denying their rumoured romance. When Bassett released Anyone Else in 2020, fans were quick to unravel the song’s lyrics, assigning the words to his supposed relationship with Rodrigo. Bassett eventually shared that the song was written to illustrate the feeling of falling for a friend who was in a relationship with someone else; by June of 2020, the media had begun to paint him and Carpenter as potential lovebirds.

In January 8 2021, Rodrigo released her hit song Driver’s License, in which she sang the lyrics ‘And you’re probably with that blonde girl / Who always made me doubt / She’s so much older than me / She’s everything I’m insecure about’, prompting fans to put on their tinfoil hats in the name of speculation. According to reports, Rodrigo had changed the lyrics from its initial ‘brunette’ to ‘blonde’, and fans were quick to express their belief that this was a not-so-subtle jab at Carpenter, who is famously not a brunette.

Seemingly responding to Rodrigo’s jab, Bassett dropped Lie, Lie, Lie on January 14, a mere week after Rodrigo’s release with lyrics that hinted at the presence of bad blood. Further adding weight to fan speculations, Bassett would go on to spill the piping hot tea on his Instagram stories.

“I wrote Lie, Lie, Lie after I found out a friend had been lying about me behind my back for a long time,” he posted, adding, “It always sucks to hear that someone you thought you could trust would throw you under the bus when it benefits them.”

For her part, Carpenter likewise appeared to hit back with a hit song, releasing Skin on January 22. In the lyrics, the singer hinted at her involvement in the messy love triangle, singing, ‘Maybe we could’ve been friends / If I met you in another life / Maybe then we could pretend / There’s no gravity in the words we write.’

Despite the rampant speculations from fans that appeared determined to manufacture a feud between Sabrina Carpenter and Olivia Rodrigo, the drama was eventually put to rest. Following the release of Skin, Carpenter took to Instagram to denounce the rumours that she had written a ‘diss track’ about Rodrigo. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Carpenter spoke out about Rodrigo and Driver’s License, expressing that she was not bothered by a few lines in a ‘magnificent’ song. Considering the compounded timeline of the singers’ supposed feud, which happened in the span of a single month, the drama is perhaps best left as it currently is: Done and dusted.

Rodrigo has since begun a relationship with Louis Partridge of Enola Holmes acclaim. Likewise, Carpenter has recently been linked to Barry Keoghan of The Eternals and Saltburn fame.

Touring with Taylor Swift

On June 2023, the one and only Taylor Swift broke the internet by announcing the international tour dates for her record-smashing Eras tour. In a pleasant surprise, Swift also announced that her international opening act would be none other than Sabrina Carpenter herself.

Since then, Carpenter has been lighting up the stage, with appearances in Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil. Most recently, she opened for the Australian leg of the Eras tour in Melbourne and Sydney, even taking to the stage beside Swift to sweetly duet the latter’s 2008 hit White Horse.

For Carpenter, who had grown up listening to and singing Swift’s songs, the opportunity to open for the Eras tour was nothing short of a dream come true. In a recent Instagram post showcasing the duo’s duet in Sydney, Carpenter shared that her child self, who had once covered Swift’s Picture to Burn on YouTube, would have never seen it coming. She went on to say, “I love you so so so dearly Taylor. Always have always will.”

Carpenter’s rise from Taylor Swift’s fan to Taylor Swift’s opening act has certainly exhibited all the hallmarks of a fairy tale with a very happy ending. In 2010, the young singer attended a Taylor Swift concert, sharing afterwards that she couldn’t wait to “have a world tour someday like hers”.

Those who are looking to manifest their dreams can stand to take a page from Carpenter’s book, with the singer’s incredible journey now coming full circle.

Fandom aside, Sabrina Carpenter’s friendship with Taylor Swift is not nearly as one-sided as one might imagine. In November 2021, to celebrate the release of Red (Taylor’s Version), Swift sent out Red (Taylor’s Version) Care Packages to a number of celebrities, with Carpenter famously receiving one. From there, the duo continued to hang out, most notably at the 2022 VMAs afterparty and the 2022 American Music Awards. Carpenter would go on to attend Swift’s 2023 Grammys afterparty, and was later photographed at the Eras tour in Philadelphia.

Sabrina Carpenter will soon arrive in Singapore, where she will once again open for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour. As the only Eras tour stop in the Southeast Asian region, the Singapore shows, which are set for March 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, and 9, are expected to draw massive crowds from across Asia.

The net worth of Sabrina Carpenter

With over a decade’s worth of work in the acting and music industry, Sabrina Carpenter has amassed an impressive net worth of USD 12 million as of 2024. It’s certainly nothing to sniff at, considering the young actress and singer has huge room and potential to further grow her career.

Indeed, while the details of Carpenter’s contract for Disney’s Girl Meets World have never been released, her co-stars reportedly made between USD 8,000 to USD 10,000 per episode. Thus, it is safe to assume that Carpenter’s salary per episode lay within that range. With the show running three seasons for a total of 71 episodes, plus one additional special, it can be assumed that much of Carpenter’s burgeoning net worth comes courtesy of Disney.

Beyond the realm of acting, Carpenter’s musical career has also contributed to her net worth, with her two back-to-back albums, Singular: Act I (2018) and Singular: Act II (2019) both debuting on the US Billboard 200 to critical acclaim.

Following the success of her albums, she would go on tour both regionally in the United States and Canada, as well as internationally across Asia, closing off the tour in April 2019 in the Lion City. When she returns to Singapore this week as the opening act for Taylor Swift’s Eras tour, Carpenter will once again belt out her hits for fans. While no official figure has been released as to what Carpenter is being paid per concert, a good indicator is the overwhelming success that the Eras tour has seen.

Both the tour proper and its corresponding concert film have grossed incredible figures, with the former surpassing the billion mark and the latter grossing USD 261.7 million at the box office. Further adding to that, Swift is famously generous with her concert crew and dancers, which certainly lend credence to the idea that Carpenter is very well rewarded for lending her inimitable voice to the Eras tour experience.

Beyond her acting and music career, reports have also placed Carpenter at the helm of production, with her own production company At Last Productions founded in October 2020. According to a Forbes report, Carpenter pitched and sold a modern, musical take of Alice in Wonderland to streaming giant Netflix for a staggering seven figures, the dollars likely contributing to her steadily growing net worth.

At the same time, the ever-industrious all-rounder is also putting her celebrity and fame to good use, working in brand endorsements and partnerships with massively successful North American brands such as Converse, Aéropostale, Target, and of course, Disney. She also signed on as a brand ambassador for Samsung USA in 2022, and in that same year, released her debut fragrance, Sweet Tooth, in partnership with Scent Beauty.

Having attained a sizeable net worth worthy of applause, Sabrina Carpenter is no stranger to life’s many luxuries. In December 2023, it was reported that the actress and singer purchased a USD 4.4 million property in the Coldwater Canyon enclave of Beverly Hills. The 1930s Spanish Mediterranean-style home is the work of design and build duo Taylor Hahn and Amanda Leigh of House of Rolison, boasting wide plank oak floors, vaulted oak ceilings, bespoke imported Italian fixtures, vintage Spanish Revival-style lighting, arched windows with striking views, custom European cabinetry, and more, spread out over almost 3,500 square feet of space. The Hollywood retreat also houses four ensuite bedrooms, two sitting rooms, a decadent kitchen, an extraordinary emerald-green dining room, and various other living spaces.

And this isn’t Carpenter’s first rodeo in property investments, either; in 2018, it was reported that she paid USD 1.7 million for a mansion in Northridge, Los Angeles, which she still owns to this day.

With her continued success and the palpable zest with which she approaches her projects, Sabrina Carpenter’s net worth is likely to continue growing in coming years. We can only hope that she continues to grace us with more iconic pop culture moments, hit musical numbers, and hilarious Nonsense outros.
