Billie Eilish is “genuinely terrified” to be turning 18 next week (December 18, 2019).
The Bad Guy singer is fast approaching her landmark birthday and, while she’s excited for her big day, she added to U.S. TV show Extra that she’s also scared in equal measures – because she feels it may change the way she’s treated in the music industry.
“I forget I am 17 sometimes. I am genuinely terrified to turn 18,” she sighed. “Even though I looked forward to turning 18 my whole life, I just think people are going to be like, ‘And here is all the hate we feel.’”
She added: “It’s okay, though – I’m excited to turn 18.”
Billie also reflected on the Britney Spears-inspired look she rocked at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball concert in Los Angeles last week – consisting of a T-shirt and shorts made from old Britney merchandise.
Speaking about why she’d opted for the look, Billie gushed: “I hope she sees it. I didn’t do it for her to see it. I just did it because I love her and I’m always trying to rep her. Oh, God, Britney is such an icon. I love her so much.”
