In a new video posted to their YouTube channel, Billie Eilish took the time to speak to Extra TV at the Variety Hitmakers event and talked about her upcoming birthday.

It may be surprising for some to learn that Eilish is only 17-years-old. The “you should see me in a crown” hitmaker has achieved a lot at her young age and continues to break records. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, she became the first artist born this millennium to have a No. 1 single and album in the U.S. On December 18, she will turn 18 and expressed to Extra that she is a little scared about it.

“I forget I am 17 sometimes. I am genuinely terrified to turn 18. Even though I looked forward to turning 18 my whole life, I just think people are going to be like, ‘And here is all the hate we feel,'” she said.

The “all the good girls go to hell” songstress did explain that it’s all good and that she’s excited to celebrate her birthday.

She also discussed the outfit she rocked during her Jingle Ball set last week in Los Angeles. Eilish wore a t-shirt with Britney Spears’ face all over it, as well as matching shorts, an outfit which caught the attention of many.

“It’s Britney, obviously. It was repurposed, so it was a bunch of old clothes that we made. The brand that we worked with made it into a new outfit.”

Even though the singer didn’t wear the outfit just so Spears would see it, she said she still hoped the pop star does.

“I just did it because I love her and I’m always trying to rep her. Oh, God, Britney is such an icon. I love her so much,” the “bury a friend” chart-topper explained.

On the night of the Variety Hitmakers ceremony, Eilish picked up an award. In her speech, she thanked her brother, Finneas, who is her co-writer, for helping her achieve the huge success she has had over the past few years. She referred to him as her best friend and insisted he’s the only reason she’s alive.

For the ceremony, Eilish wore an oversized zipped up floral jacket with a turtleneck garment underneath. She paired the ensemble with pants that matched her jacket and accessorized her look with numerous rings, hoop earrings, and green sunglasses. She sported her signature black-and-green hair down.

The singer is currently the latest cover girl for Variety, which she posed with at the event. The “come out and play” entertainer held the magazine in her hand and stuck her tongue out while she closed her eyes.

For the cover, Eilish was photographed close up. She looked to the side while wearing green sunglasses with very small lenses.
