Billie Eilish Defends Drake Texting Her: 'Everybody’s So Sensitive'

Billie Eilish keeps in contact with Drake via text. In a recent interview with Vogue, however, Eilish came to Drake's defense.

Eilish appeared to be overwhelmed by the extent of her domination of the awards; at one point fans even reckon the singer-songwriter mouthed to herself "Please don't be me, please", when the nominations for Album of the Year were called out.

She made the comments to Vogue in an interview published on February 3.

She went on to win that one, but when she accepted the accolade had turned to fellow nominee Ariana Grande and said: "Can I just say that I think Ariana deserves this?"

While she pointed to her songs "Bury a Friend" and "Bellyache" as examples of songs which feature fiction, she claims many rappers are "lying" in their raps.

"There are tons of songs where people are just lying", Eilish told Vogue. "It's like, "I got my AK-47, and I'm f**kin",' and I'm like, what?" 'And all my b*tches...' I'm like, which b*tches?

"Maybe people see me as a rule breaker because they themselves feel like they have to follow rules, and here I am not doing it", she adds.

Billie Eilish doesn't get why so many people have a problem with her friendship with Drake.

Billie Eilish is calling out rappers for lying in their music.

"As a fan growing up, I was always like, 'What the f*** is wrong with them?".

Eilish may have borrowed some of her aesthetic from hip hop culture, but that doesn't mean that she has the range to speak on rap music. Would you prefer rap stories be 100% nonfiction so we can produce more dead or incarcerated rapstars?

And someone else noted: "Music is art".

"The internet is such a stupid-ass mess right now", says the now 18-year-old Eilish. No it's the lyrics to a song. "He was like a beam of light and just tried to do everything for other people", she said of the late X.

"Everybody's so sensitive", she told Vogue.

As the magazine noted, Nastya Kovtun's bio on Instagram reads simply, "Im 16 and I love to draw". "Like, he does not need to be that nice - you know what I mean?" I developed really early. This is what I've been missing.
