Billie Eilish shares her perspective on success, social media and fame
Originally published on November 8, 2018
Billie Eilish is a 16-year-old singer and burgeoning fashion icon who's racked up 7.2 million followers on Instagram and millions upon millions of streams and video views — but that's life for a lot of young pop stars today.
Eilish is blowing up big right now. All of her concerts sell out, she performs for tens of thousands of people and she's already been on The Ellen Show. Her music is deep, brooding, malevolent and celebratory pop.
She dropped by the q studio to chat about her career so far, and share her perspective on success, social media, fame and even existence. Her EP is out now, expect a full length record later in 2019.
Watch the full interview with Billie Eilish above.
