Billie Eilish Says The Met Gala Made Her Realise Celebrities Are ‘Literally Nobodies’
Billie Eilish reckons celebrities are just like everyone else, despite their massive wealth, attention, and status in society.
The singer revealed it was this year's Met Gala that made her realise how warped the world's idea is on celebrities.
She was one of the co-chairs of the glitzy event in New York City earlier this year that sees A-listers climb the famous steps of the Metropolitan Art Museum for a night of fashion.
There is a hell of a lot of attention paid to what each person wears and whether they stick to the specific yet sometimes vague annual theme.
Eilish dazzled everyone in an old Hollywood gown and bright blonde hair, which was dramatically different from the black and neon green looks she had previously worn on red carpet events.
Some people would kill for a ticket to see what happens inside, however the 'Happier Than Ever' singer found it to be quite strange.
"It's nuts. It's famous people famous people-ing. That's what it is," she explained during an interview on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show.
"You know what, the main thing that night made me think or feel was how famous people are just literally nobodies.
"Just randos, and it's so weird. Eilish
"I was like, 'Wow, all these people are just somebody that's in class with you', and you think this person's kinda annoying, you really like this person, you get along with this person, and everybody's just, like, embarrassed and insecure about what they're doing and saying."
Despite slagging off the concept of celebrity, she admitted that the night was spectacular and claimed it was 'just beautiful' inside.
Eilish co-chaired this year's Met Gala alongside actor Timothée Chalamet, tennis star Naomi Osaka and this year's Presidential Inauguration poet Amanda Gorman.
It was the teenager's first ever Met Gala and she became the youngest person (at 19 years old) to co-chair the event.
Vogue, who helps put on the glamorous event, said it was fitting to have someone who regularly stood out from the crowd for her personal style choices.
The fashion magazine noted her 'willingness to embrace an aesthetic as innovative as her music has pushed emerging brands into the limelight and challenged old rules about how a pop star should dress'.
But, after slagging off how celebrities are just there to be celebrities, it'll be interesting if she gets an invite to next year's event.
