If you’ve been hearing the name Billie Eilish lately but can’t figure out who she is or where you’ve seen those bright green roots before, we’re here to tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the pop singer. She’s made a point to bring a fresh, funky, and fantastically weird new vibe to the popular music scene.
After reading this, you’ll know everything about Billie Eilish’s incredible music, lyrics, upcoming projects, net worth, major career highlights and all about her famous brother and collaborator, Finneas. You’ll probably also become a fan of her unique voice, edgy lyrics, and cool, colorful music videos.
Billie Eilish (full name Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell) is a singer and songwriter from the United States. Billie is a pop star who first gained worldwide fame in 2016 after releasing her hit song “Ocean Eyes” to the popular online audio distribution platform SoundCloud.
The song was then picked up and released by Darkroom. Since then, she’s released the critically acclaimed album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, as well as singles such as “Bellyache”, “Bad Guy” and “No Time To Die”, which will be used in the upcoming James Bond film to be released on November 25, 2020.
Along with her impressive musical repertoire, Billie is known for her out-there style choices, bright hair color, and baggy clothes. Her decision to dress herself this way is a conscious effort to keep fans from objectifying her body, which she discussed during a live show in a powerful statement.
Billie is also known for her collaborative work with her brother and fellow musician Finneas O’Connell, who frequently joins her onstage during her concerts. Here’s what she’s said about making music with her brother: “Me and my brother get along super well. We’re, like, best friends. So we’ll stay up until, like, five just talking.”
Billie Eilish was born on December 18, 2001, and is currently 18 years old. She was born in Los Angeles, California, and is the daughter of Patrick O’Connell, an actor and musician, and Maggie Baird, and actress, screenwriter, and musician.
Although she’s a legal adult now, there was some controversy surrounding her age when rapper and former Degrassi star Drake exchanged texts with her back when she was just 17. After online backlash. Billie has since defended his actions and insists that there was nothing “creepy” going on.
As of early 2020, Billie’s net worth is an estimated 8 million dollars. Along with her success in the recording industry, she collaborated with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami in April of 2019 to launch her own clothing line and has appeared in Adobe Creative Cloud advertisements.
Other 2019 business ventures of Billie’s that have contributed to her staggering net worth include posing for Calvin Klein ads in May, partnering with the Freak City clothing brand in July and partnering with Apple to promote the Music Lab app in August.
Billie has won an impressive amount of awards for her songs and videos. Her most notable wins include five Grammys, two American Music Awards, and three MTV VMA Awards. She’s also won a 2020 Guinness World Record for the Youngest female artist at No.1 on UK albums chart and the most simultaneous US Hot 100 entries by a female artist.
And speaking of award shows, she recently made headlines at the 2020 Oscars Awards both for her touching In Memoriam performance of the song “Yesterday” by The Beatles and the hilariously confused face that the cameras caught during the show.
Billie isn’t dating anyone and appears to be single since she hasn’t publicly announced a relationship with anyone. And while she’s always been fairly closed-mouthed when it comes to her love life, the lyrics to songs like “My Boy” and “Wish You Were Gay” make it pretty apparent that she’s gone through her fair share of heartbreak.
During an appearance on Howard Stern, she told the story of a cringe-worthy first date she experienced at just 13 years old. She went to the movies with a rich boy who for some strange reason brought his butler along. They shared a less-than-magical kiss and he left her stranded without a ride home. Pretty romantic, right?
No, Billie is only 18 years old and she’s not married. And while she’s had a brush with love in the past, she’s all about self-love at the moment. She told 3Voor12: “I was in love, [but] not at the moment,” she said.”I’m in love with her,” she said before motioning to herself. “Me.”
Because she’s still just a teenager and seems totally focused on her music and clothing lines right now, it seems likely that we probably won’t be hearing about any whirlwind romances that result in a quickie Vegas wedding anytime soon.
We don’t know for certain if Billie is religious, but according to HITC.com, “Billie performed with the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, a singing group which often uses the Pasadena Presbyterian Church as a rehearsal space.”
After seeing Billie’s “Good Girls Go to Hell” music video filled with Satanic and biblical imagery, many speculated that she had grown up religious, but so far we haven’t found any evidence of that.
“I don’t want people at my shows to come out and say, ‘I just saw a cool show.’ I want them to say, ‘I had fun at the show.’ I want it to be a collaborative thing and be part of the audience and have them be part of me.”
“I go through a lot of depression, and I know other people do, too, but I have an outlet that so many people don’t. If you have that inside of you and can’t get it out, what do you do?”
“I really love Linkin Park, and I loved Chester Bennington, and it is horrible what happened to him. I grew up listening to him because my dad would make these mixtapes with a lot of different artists – Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, The Beatles, Sarah McLachlan, I just really loved Linkin Park, and their production is really sick.”
“‘Bellyache’ is totally fictional. I like writing about things that aren’t real. The song is about not trusting anyone and then putting trust in yourself and realizing that you don’t know what you are doing, either. Or realizing that things you do with a group of people that you think are cool in the moment are ultimately all on you.”
“Being an artist doesn’t just mean you have a song. That doesn’t make you an artist. The word ‘artist’ means so many different things, and I feel like to be a real one, you really have to do it all. The people that I think of as artists – Tyler the Creator, Childish Gambino, Kanye West – are doing the most.”
“I don’t even call them fans. I don’t like that. They’re literally just a part of my life; they’re a part of my family. I don’t think of them as on a lower level than me. I don’t think I’m anything but equal to all of them. So yeah, they’re basically all of my siblings.”
