Billie Eilish Comes Out In A Recent Interview

Billie Eilish was unaware that a recent interview with Variety would be considered her coming out story.

On Saturday (12.02,) the pop star said “I didn’t, but I kinda thought, wasn’t it obvious?” while on the red carpet for the Variety Hitmakers Brunch, where she and her brother Finneas were being honored with the film song of the year award for their Barbie soundtrack tune “What Was I Made For?” “I didn’t realize people didn’t know.”

In the Variety 11.13 cover story, the superstar singer/songwriter stated that she’s attracted to women: “I love them so much.” “I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real … I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”

In public, Eilish has only been seen in relationships with men, most recently The Neighbourhood’s Jesse Rutherford before their breakup in May

Concerning the Variety cover story and the concept of coming out, Billie casually said, “I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it. Whoops.” “But … I saw the article and I was like, ‘Oh! I guess I came out today!’” “It’s exciting to me because I guess people didn’t know, so it’s cool that they know.” “But ooh, I’m nervous talking about it.”

“I am for the girls,” confirmed Eilish, who will soon be seen as the musical guest on the Kate McKinnon-hosted Dec. 16 episode of SNL. “I’m still scared of ’em,” she added in the red carpet interview, “but I think they’re pretty.”
