Drake and Billie Eilish are two of the hottest names in the music world right now but they aren’t two stars that we’d necessarily put together… not least because Drake is thirty-three and Billie is seventeen…
In a recent interview, Billie seemed to slip up and reveal a few things that she probably shouldn’t have done and the internet is attacking Drake in full force as a consequence – and it’s not the first time that Drake’s been under fire for this kind of thing.
Keep scrolling to hear more about the text messages Drake has been sending Billie and to find out what, exactly, the internet has to say about all of this.
She’s a seventeen-year-old singer who has recently taken the music world by storm.
Her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, ranked at number 1 on the charts.
Most artists have to release a couple of albums and dedicate their lives to promoting their work before they are even recognized as an artist, but then there’s a lucky few, like Billie, who reach superstardom on their first attempt.
When the album was released, she wrote: “This album [means] the world to me please take care of it.”
Her introductory EP, Don’t Smile at Me, went all the way to slot fourteen, and has already been awarded gold, an achievement that many artists can only dream of receiving.
And that only helped her fanbase grow stronger. The seventeen-year-old singer is well-known for her catchy beats and dark lyrics. Despite being so young, it seems as if she has already cemented her position within the music industry.
Her song “bad guy” turned the whole of the internet into Eilish fans because of the catchy-nature of the beat and, before you knew it, every radio station was playing the tune. It was impossible; you just couldn’t get away from it.
But, hey, I’m not complaining, it’s a good song.
Now Billie is in the news after she revealed some slightly odd things about rapper, Drake.
Is there anybody that doesn’t know Drake?
The Canadian is a rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and even a businessman!
Born in Toronto in 1986, the thirty-three-year-old first became a recognizable face due to his acting career, starring in Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Speaking about his time on the show, Drake reminisced: “My mother was very sick. We were very poor, like broke. The only money I had coming in was off of Canadian TV.”
After dropping a handful of mixtapes, Drake was involved in what was described as the biggest bidding war of all time, between different record labels trying to snatch him up.
Eventually, he signed a massive deal Young Money Entertainment.
For the past ten years, Drake has consistently been in the charts and has sold millions of albums and singles.
He’s an incredibly popular guy most the time.
This comes after seventeen-year-old Billie Eilish revealed that he texts her.
Drake was criticized for something similar last year, when people began talking about his messages to Millie Bobby Brown, who was just fourteen at the time.
One particular message which creeped a lot of people out was when Drake messaged Millie saying: “I miss you so much.”
One person wrote: “Drake is creepy af for texting Millie Bobby Brown and taking her out to dinner multiple times. She’s 14 & he’s in his 30s. That is so disturbing.”
Another exclaimed: “It is absolutely creepy af that Drake, 32 years old, gives advice on boys to Millie Bobby Brown. She is fourteen. Am I taking crazy pills? In what world is this even remotely okay?”
Speaking at the time, Millie said: “I love him. I met him in Australia and he’s honestly so fantastic, a great friend, and a great role model.
We just texted each other the other day and he was like ‘I miss you so much,’ and I was like ‘I miss you more.'”
Speaking recently, Billie revealed that Drake often texts her.
She explained: “Drake is like the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to. I mean I’ve only like texted him, but he’s so nice. He does not to be nice, you know what I mean? He’s at a level in his life where he doesn’t need to be nice, but he is.”
One person wrote: “Why is Drake texting 17 year old Billie Ellish? Are we going to pretend there’s not a pattern here of Drake texting underage girls that don’t have shit to with rap? Okay.”
Another accused him of grooming, writing: “Bruh… Drake grooming that lil bright girl Billie Eilish now.”
“Drake is 33 and was texting a 14 year old millie Bobby brown and now he’s texting a 17 year old billie ellish and he’s been interested in Kylie jenner since ‘forever’ and she JUST turned 22 like this guy is a CREEP CREEP and people just give him a pass WHY”
Just text people a little older Drake, it’s not difficult.
Speaking of Drake and girls a little younger than him, have you heard who he’s rumored to be dating? It certainly took us by surprise…
