Billie Eilish‘s Hot 100 chart topper “bad guy” is inescapable and undeniably catchy, but surprisingly, the songstress herself didn’t think it was going to be a hit at first.

The 17-year-old and her brother Finneas dropped by The Howard Stern Show on Monday (September 30th), where she answered a question about being able to uphold her hit-making tendencies. “I don’t know what people want anymore,” she said. “I thought people would hate ‘bad guy’ and I thought people would hate ‘when the party’s over.’ So I don’t know what to do now.”  With both songs becoming wildly popular despite their drastically different vibes, it is understandable that the teenage artist is torn between two different genre.

As for her skyrocketing fame, Eilish explained that she’s relieved that it’s happened so young. “Because it happened when I was 13, a part of me feels like I didn’t miss getting to be a teenager, like a normal one,” she said. Referencing the growing trend of haters combing through artists’ pasts for potentially damaging content, the “Ocean Eyes” vocalist noted that “More and more I get grateful for it happening that young. I feel like if it happened later, people would be able to dig up dirt from when I was that age. If this hadn’t happened at that age, I would be doing some reckless s—.”

With that said, check out the teenage female phenom’s work as performed on The Howard Stern Show below.
