Talking about her music, the 19-year-old said it “feels exactly how I want it to. There isn’t one song, or one part of one song, that I wish was this or that I wish it was that.”

Besides RJ Cutler, the director of the documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, filmed between 2018 and early 2020, said in the interview, “Billie is a member of the unique moment in history… It’s such a fascinating time of life, where you were both child and adult; one foot in childhood, one foot in adulthood. And especially for somebody who’s going through what Billie was going through and who was such a remarkable talent.”

On the Therefore I Am singer’s huge fan following, father Patrick O’Connell further said, “She’s (Billie) direct and unaffected. It’s disarming and visible to anyone who sees it, but I think it’s so appealing and magnetic to her fans.”
