Billie Eilish wasn’t conscious that a recent interview would certainly be regarded as an appearing tale, however she’s trendy with it.

“I didn’t, but I kinda thought, wasn’t it obvious?” the pop celebrity claimed to Variety on the red carpeting for the Variety Hitmakers Brunch, where she and bro Finneas were being bestowed the movie tune of the year honor for their Barbie soundtrack song “What Was I Made For?” on Saturday (Dec. 2). “I didn’t realize people didn’t know.”

In the magazine’s Nov. 13 cover story, Eilish had actually pointed out that she’s drawn in to ladies: “I love them so much,” she claimed. “I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real … I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”

Eilish has actually just ever before remained in public connections with males, most lately The Neighbourhood’s Jesse Rutherford prior to their breakup in May

Speaking concerning the Variety cover tale and the subject of appearing on the red carpeting Saturday, she delicately claimed, “I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it. Whoops.”

“But … I saw the article and I was like, ‘Oh! I guess I came out today!’” Eilish claimed with a laugh.

“It’s exciting to me because I guess people didn’t know, so it’s cool that they know,” the vocalist included. “But ooh, I’m nervous talking about it.”

“I am for the girls,” verified Eilish, that will certainly quickly be seen as the musical guest on the Kate McKinnon-hosted Dec. 16 episode of SNL.

“I’m still scared of ’em,” she included the red carpeting meeting, “but I think they’re pretty.”
