Last November, Billie, now 18 revealed that she and the 33-year-old Canadian rapper texted a lot. But many critcised Drake for it and dubbed the revelation “creepy” and “inappropriate,” as the singer was only 17 at the time.
Billie made this known after Millie Bobby Brown who was 14 years at the time, revealed Drake also texts her.
Setting the record straight to those criticising Drake, Eilish pointed out that a grown man can be a fan to a 17-year-old.
Speaking to Vogue for their upcoming March 2020 issue, Billie Eilish opened up about her friendship with Drake and defended him from the criticism.
Speaking in part, she said: “The internet is such a stupid-ass mess right now. Everybody’s so sensitive. A grown man can’t be a fan of an artist?”
