She was recently named the first artist born in the 2000s to land a No. 1 album.

And Billie Eilish received a special welcome in New Zealand on Tuesday, after touching down at Auckland Airport ahead of her concert at Spark Arena.

Having stepped off a long-haul flight from Los Angeles, the 17-year-old songstress was treated to a traditional welcome by the Hātea Kapa Haka group, who performed a Māori language version of her song When the Party’s Over.



SMH: Next week, she’ll play sold-out gigs at the Hordern Pavilion and Margaret Court Arena, her much hyped debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? having spawned critical praise, hit singles and chart-topping stints across the US, UK, Australia and much of the globe.

At 17, she’s the first person born after 2000 to have a #1 album. Still a minor, she’s already a pop icon, both musically and aesthetically, representing the cultural reins-handing from millennials to Generation Z.

“I can’t make music thinking about that,” says Eilish, from an Adelaide hotel room. “I don’t give a f— about the numbers… It’s like, that’s sick. But I’m not going to count on all that to make me feel like I’m the artist I want to be, you know what I’m saying?”

That Eilish has caught such fire, and sent the music industry spinning, is at once obvious and boggling. Her music has a classic pop streak filtered through commiserant imagery and a generation’s scorn at genre divides. If early Britney Spears went goth, or had grown up in the era of trap, the result might’ve been Billie Eilish.

But besides her affinity for black-bleeding eyeballs, she’s also funny, self-assured, refreshingly playful. Her album opens with Eilish spitting out her Invisalign; other tracks sample quips from US sitcom The Office; hit single Bad Guy hinges on a glorious “duh”. Among her 20 million Instagram followers, those giddy personality quirks are as much part of Eilish’s appeal as her music. But lately, she’s feeling the scrutiny.

“The internet is so, so touchy, that honestly, the internet does not deserve my funny f—ing ass. They don’t,” she laughs. “They don’t deserve me being hilarious, because they just don’t understand it.

“I don’t really share anything on the internet anymore. I don’t really post about anything I think or feel or whatever… It’s proven to me every time I give in and say one thing; it’s like, see okay, this is why I don’t say anything. I just don’t do it anymore.”

It’s sad, I suggest, having to distance herself from such an important sphere of expression, one that’s second-nature to her generation and that all but created her career.

“Yeah, I guess. Internet is crazy as f—, though,” she says. “I’d rather just not get f—ing shitted on by the internet than keep my jokes to myself.”

Her demanding new schedule, with its extensive touring, is grind enough, it seems.

“Touring has only recently started to be fun, and by recently I mean, like, this week,” she chuckles. “The shows are incredible, which is why it’s worth everything that’s lame about it… It’s almost become a task more than the therapeutic thing it used to be. But, I mean, it’s okay to let that happen; it’s my job now.”

For her current trip, at least, she’s joined by her entire family. Her brother Finneas, her co-writer and producer, plays in the band; her dad Patrick, now that they have a touring budget, helps the roadies build the set; her mum Maggie acts as guardian and “my assistant, almost”.

“My whole family’s on the road, minus my dog and my cat,” she says. The Partridge Family endures. And what about schooling?

“Nah, f— that. No way,” she says. “I grew up home-schooled so I never was doing schooling anyway.”

There’s a tradition of teen pop stars awkwardly navigating early fame and cosmic success. Justin Bieber went notoriously wild, Harry Styles released his adult album. What will Eilish’s eventual rebellion look like?

“I just hope I don’t break down in front of the whole world,” she says. “It’s really hard not to. I have, I just haven’t done it publicly yet. I’m just trying to deal with everything. I’m actually in a place right now where I’m really happy, feeling pretty healthy about everything. I’m doing just fine.”

Billie Eilish performs in Sydney on Tuesday April 30 and Wednesday May 1, and Melbourne on Friday May 3.



At this present moment, South Korean boyband BTS and 17-year-old pop wunderkind Billie Eilish are arguably the two biggest names in music. And if the former gets their way, a collaboration between the two acts could be coming soon.

On the heels of their new album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which featured collaborations with Halsey and Ed Sheeran, BTS were asked which others artists they’d like to work with. Speaking with Beats 1 Radio, Jungkook specifically named Eilish as an artist the group is hoping to collaborate. BTS went on to laud Eilish’s debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, saying “Everyone should hear it.”

Of course, it’ll likely be some time before we hear any new music from BTS, as the group is set to embark on their massive stadium tour early next month. Meanwhile, Eilish is riding high off of her Coachella debut and has her own tour scheduledfor the coming months.

PageSix.: Billie Eilish is famous for her dark songs, over-the-top style and blue hair. But as it turns out, she’s not so fond of the latter.

The singer, 17, told Buzzfeed that she didn’t quite realize what dyeing her hair dark blue would mean for her image — and she actually hates the color.

“Here’s what’s annoying: I hate the color blue — it’s my least favorite color. I don’t know how I ended up dying it blue,” she said. “I remember I just lived with it for a while and then I realized that I was somebody with colored hair — I didn’t clock that. I had blue hair but I didn’t think I was someone with blue hair. I just thought I had blue hair and that’s me. Then I realized when people walk by me, they were probably like, ‘Oh, she has blue hair.’ You know, as you do when you see somebody with colored hair.”

Though Eilish has tried shades ranging from a light, silvery periwinkle to a deep navy, the dye job has since become synonymous with her public persona despite the “Bury a Friend” singer’s best efforts.

“I was told that whoever dyed my hair in October used a permanent blue so that s—t is not coming out,” she explained. “I have sat in that stupid salon chair for hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours trying to get that blue out and that b—h will not get the f—k out of my hair.”



Billie Eilish wants people to stop comparing her to Lana Del Rey: “Do not disrespect Lana like that!”.

Billie Eilish has spoken about being compared to other artists, suggesting that it’s disrespectful to the stars she’s measured against.

The pop star has been specifically compared to Lana Del Rey in recent months, as well as other acts including Avril Lavigne and Lorde.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Eilish said: “Everybody’s always trying to make everybody compete,” she said. “They’re like, ‘Billie’s album might pass Ariana’s…’ But just stop. I don’t care. I don’t want to hear that Billie Eilish is the new Lana Del Rey. Do not disrespect Lana like that!

“That woman has made her brand so perfect for her whole career and shouldn’t have to hear that.” She added that she doesn’t want to the cycle to continue once another new female artist arrives on the scene either, saying: “I don’t want to hear that somebody’s the new Billie Eilish in a couple of years.”

Last week (April 5), Eilish became the youngest ever female solo act to claim the Number One spot on the Official UK Albums Chart. Her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ went straight to the top of the charts, earning the 17-year-old the record.

Joss Stone previously claimed the title when she released her 2004 album ‘Mind, Body & Soul’. However, she was two months older than Eilish at the time.

Meanwhile, the cast of the US version of The Office had to personally clear a sample used on Eilish’s song ‘My Strange Addiction’. The track features dialogue clips from the episode “Threat Level Midnight”.
