- Billie Eilish was asked about the “scariest thing” she’s done in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
- “First thing that came to mind is when my feet are close to the bottom of the bed,” she said.
- Eilish said she even requested that none of the furniture in her house could have space underneath.
Billie Eilish recently sat down for her fifth annual interview with Vanity Fair, during which she revealed the “scariest thing” she’s ever done.
“First thing that came to mind is when my feet are close to the bottom of the bed,” she said in the new video, which was filmed on October 18. “That’s the scariest part of my day, every day.”
The 19-year-old singer said she gags if her feet get too close to the edge of her bed, so she has to jump onto the mattress from “two feet away.”
“I can’t help myself but gag. It’s disgusting. Creeps me out,” she said.
Eilish said she even made sure that all of the furniture in her house, where she secretly moved after she left her childhood home in Los Angeles, rests on the ground so there’s no space underneath.
“I made that very, very clear,” she said. “All my chairs, my couches, my bed frame, it all goes all the way to the ground. There’s no storage. I would rather lose the storage space under my bed than have to step next to the bottom of my bed.”
“I don’t really get scared of scary things,” Eilish continued. “I had a huge anaconda literally almost choke me to death and that was so much fun. So much fun.”
The pop star was referring to her self-directed music video for “Your Power,” released in April. The minimalist clip shows Eilish singing on a mountainside as she’s constricted by a snake — a green anaconda named Archie, to be precise.
After taking a moment to seriously consider the question (“What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done?”), Eilish replied, “Fallen in love.”
Several songs on Eilish’s sophomore album “Happier Than Ever” seem to address a power imbalance between the teenager and an unnamed love interest. The title track begins as a soft ballad about moving on, before it transitions to a hard-rock heartbreak anthem.
“You were my everything, and all that you did was make me fucking sad,” she sings in the third verse.
Fans have speculated that “Happier Than Ever,” which was recently nominated for song and record of the year at the Grammys, was inspired by her ex-boyfriend Brandon Quention Adams.
