Billie Eilish says Eminem freaked her out as a child
The 17-year-old star opened up to Noisey about her fear of the “Stan” rapper in a segment where she was asked to choose between different things.
The subject came up when Eilish was asked to choose a favorite rapper between Drake, Childish Gambino and Eminem. She said she was “1 billion percent” picking Gambino.
“I was scared of Eminem my whole life. Dude, terrified,” she said. “The dude freaked the fuck out of me. Oh my god. But you know Childish Gambino created me.”
She also revealed some other shocking news that she has never had a Pop Tart in her life.
She later went on to pick Biggie Smalls over Tupac and Jay-Z when she was asked to choose between those rappers.
“I feel like Tupac’s vibe is cooler. Biggie’s voice just feels like a big heavy, warm blanket on you, which is probably what it feels like if he laid on top of you,” she said.
She also picked the Beatles over Elvis Presley because she’s never listened to the latter’s music.
“I’ve actually never really heard Elvis. I was born too late for that. His hips be movin’ though,” she said.
