Quite a people wonder if Finneas O'Connell is jealous of sister Billie Eilish's fame. However, the 'Break My Heart Again' singer has insisted that he has no desire to reach the same level of fame as his sister. The singer-songwriter has said that he is absolutely not jealous of the 'Bad Guy' hitmaker's achievements. However, he has an interesting take on his sister's fame. "People who don't listen to her music or like her music at all still want a picture with her just to prove they've seen her like sighting Bigfoot in the woods," he told Adelaide Now. "And that's dangerous because that's where you're not treated like a person, you're treated like an animal in the zoo or something."

Finneas, who is a close collaborator with his sibling, enjoys a successful career of his own. "I'm not as famous as the most famous people, I'm not as famous as my sister or some of our friends and I think there's a level of fame that I truly would never want to dip my toes into."

Appreciating his parents for inspiring him to become a musician, Finneas added, "Our mum is a really talented songwriter so she taught us the basics of song-writing and it was just this lightbulb moment for me where I was like, 'Oh man, I love doing this so much'."
