Billie Eilish caught up with Billboard’s Chelsea Briggs and Lele Pons on the red carpet at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Thursday (Dec. 12), chatting about her Woman of the Year honor, the importance of family and what she enjoys most about performing with her brother, her love of Alicia Keys, and whether or not fans can expect another Justin Bieber collaboration in the future.
Asked how it feels to be named Woman of the Year on the cusp of turning 18, Eilish tells Billboard, “It feels really surreal. I’ve been watching the acceptance speeches for this award for years, idolizing these women in the past and it’s really insane. My life is crazy.”
She also discusses the importance of family and what she likes most about getting to perform with her brother Finneas. “It’s really solid [working with Finneas] and we’ve been best friends for basically our entire lives,” she says. “It just works…I love my mom, I love my dad. They come on the road with me. It’s cool.”
