Billie Eilish Gives Shoutout to Boston, MA, in Recent Vanity Fair Interview
It's always cool when a celebrity reveals that they're fond of our neck of the woods, so this writer was obviously excited after hearing singer-songwriter Billie Eilish give a shoutout to New England's own Boston, Massachusetts, in a recent interview with Vanity Fair.
Billie Eilish has been killing it these days, but when is she not? The 20-year-old is one of the most popular figures in the music industry today, having made history as "the youngest artist to receive nominations and win in all the major categories at the 62nd GRAMMY® Awards, receiving an award for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album," according to Spotify.
Since 2017, Billie has done an annual interview with Vanity Fair every October. During these interviews, she reflects on everything from her career accomplishments to relationships, feelings, struggles, and life advice, plus fun little things like her room decor or what she's eaten that day. She also gets to watch and react to herself and things she's said in years past.
This week, Vanity Fair released Billie's official interview for 2022. At one point in the video, Billie answers fan questions that have been sent her way via Instagram. One question asked "what was your favorite show this tour?", in reference to her Happier Than Ever World Tour. After a second of contemplation, Billie responds "Boston".
Although she didn't elaborate further, this is still so incredibly cool. This young woman has traveled all over the country and world, and for her to acknowledge Boston as her favorite show on her tour really says something about the spirit of us New Englanders. This writer can only imagine the incredible energy of that crowd. So, shoutout to everyone at that concert for giving Billie Eilish a memorable New England welcome.
