Since 2017, the star has been participating in the Vanity Fair interviews annually and this year will mark her fourth
Billie Eilish let out a double whammy of announcements on October 17, on social media. Fans can look forward to the fourth installment of her viral interview series with Vanity Fair as well as a new single dropping this fall. The 'Bad Guy' singer has been holding a Q&A session for fans recently and shared screenshots of the interactions on her Instagram stories. When asked "Are you doing the 1 year progression interview this year", by a fan, Eilish responded with, "Well tomorrow is the 18th isn't it?" Check out the post here.
The "18th" refers to the date of the filming for her first interview, on October 18, as well as the filming date of its follow-ups. Since 2017, the star has been participating in the Vanity Fair interviews annually and this year will mark her fourth. Every year, the video interviews are a viral affair, as the now five-time Grammy winner takes the time to share how far she has come after each year and reflects on her career.
When Eilish first sat down with Vanity Fair in 2017, she was a 15-year-old who was just experiencing her first brush with success after her single 'Ocean Eyes', and getting ready to record a debut studio album. In 2018, the pop sensation then revisited the footage from the first interview and discussed how much has changed since then. At the time, Eilish he was getting ready to release 'When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?' and gave a candid interview sharing about some of the stress and anxiety she was feeling in the run-up. That video currently has more than 61 million views.
Last year's interview saw the singer talking about the celebrities she thinks are the nicest and how she really feels about being famous. Speaking of her 2018 interview, Eilish said, "Back then I thought it was the biggest I was ever gonna be, and I thought it was the most I was ever gonna be recognized, and it was the most anyone was gonna know me. It was the most money that I would have, the most clothes I’d have, the most shoes that I’d have, and what’s crazy [is] it wasn’t," according to Vanity Fair.
There are been a slew of changes in the pop star's life since 2017 and the 2020 interview will certainly be a must-watch, especially considering that she won all five of her Grammy Awards at this year's ceremony.
Fans have been quick to share their excitement over the upcoming interview. "We will be watching," one fan said while another wrote, "YESSS SHES COMING." "Wait omg i love those videos," said a fan.
