Billie Eilish is the 17-year-old who’s taken over the Billboard charts and most of your streaming platforms due to her beloved album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? At one point, Billie was the second most streamed artist behind Ariana Grande and it all makes sense now considering just how much of a fan Billie is of the “Needy” singer.
“Ariana is a f**king king! Like a king,” Billie told Entertainment Tonight at the 2019 ASCAP Pop Music Awards. “She is just so… God, man, and the sh*t that she’s been through. I don’t know if I have respect for anyone like I have for her, honestly.”
According to Billie, she’s secured the texting rights with Ariana, sometimes picking her brain on the industry. “You can just tell she knows what the f**k she’s doing, and even if she doesn’t realize it, she knows what the f**k she’s doing. And it’s really impressive,” Billie added. “She just deals with it so well. It’s so impressive.”

On the topic of her seemingly never-ending success, Billie is through the roof. “I’m just happy about it, you know. I don’t know what else I’m supposed to be…I’ve been having to talk about myself in the third person because I don’t know how to be like, ‘I just did that, I just did this.'”
