Billie Eilish exploded onto the music scene a couple of years ago and was barely a teenager when she did it. She opened up to Howard Stern about how she’s thankful she became famous so young because she would’ve been reckless otherwise.
The 17-year-old singer admitted that people would have probably been “able to dig up dirt” about her and her past if she became famous later in life. She believes she would’ve got up to some mischief in her youth if she wasn’t being watched as closely by the public eye.
“Because it happened when I was 13, a part of me feels like I didn’t miss getting to be a teenager, like a normal one. More and more I get grateful for it happening that young,” Eilish said on The Howard Stern Show. “I feel like if it happened later, people would be able to dig up dirt from when I was that age. If this hadn’t happened at that age, I would be doing some reckless [things].”
Eilish’s music is incredibly popular and her success is amazing at such a young age. She’s even the first artist born in the 2000s to have a number one album in the United States. However, the singer told Stern that she thought people wouldn’t like her hit singles “bad guy” and “when the party’s over”. She also admitted she has no idea how to approach her new music. Her talent is so insane that we’re sure that no matter what direction she takes her new music it’ll be a success.
