Billie Eilish Defends Drake Texting Her: 'Everybody's So Sensitive'


Billie Eilish has landed her first cover of Vogue and the new profile on the pop superstar includes a brief chat about the controversy that erupted in 2019 when she revealed that she and Drake text each other.

Speaking with the fashion magazine, Eilish, 18, appeared annoyed about the fuss that people took with her texting relationship with Drizzy, 33. "The internet is such a stupid-ass mess right now," she ranted of the subject, with the mag noting that she quit Twitter in 2018. "Everybody’s so sensitive. A grown man can’t be a fan of an artist? There are so many people that the internet should be more worried about."

Eilish went further by declaring the logic to the argument nothing short than weak. "Like, you’re really going to say that Drake is creepy because he’s a fan of mine, and then you’re going to go vote for Trump?" she asked, adding, "What the f**k is that sh*t?"

In case you don't remember, the internet took issue when Eilish participated in Vanity Fair's "Same Interview, the Third Year" video installment, where she detailed the famous people in her phone. "Hailey Bieber, Justin Bieber, Young Thug, Avril Lavigne, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla Sign, Teyana Taylor," she said. "God, there’s so many. But like, Drake? Come on. Drake? 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 need 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, you know?"

To backtrack, the fuss might have been particularly emphasized after a 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown had previously admitted that the two also send each other text messages. "He just texted each other the other day, and he was like, 'I miss you so much,' and I was like 'I miss you more.' He's great," the Stranger Things actress previously revealed.
