US singer-songwriter Billie Eilish will celebrate her 20th birthday on Saturday. The musician, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, was born in Los Angeles in 2001.
She and her brother Finneas, also a musician, were homeschooled by their mother, actress Maggie Baird.
Eilish, who has seven Grammy Awards, is known for her often dark lyrics.
She made the headlines earlier in the week when, speaking on “The Howard Stern Show” on Sirius XM radio on Monday (December 13), she talked about her addiction to watching pornography, starting at age 11, and how it gave her nightmares and messed her up when she started dating.
Eilish said she is now angry at herself for thinking it was OK to watch so much porn.
The singer, who started her career wearing baggy clothes to prevent people from commenting on her body, became the youngest person in history to win all four of the top Grammy Awards in the same year when she took home the statuettes for new artist, album, record and song of the year in 2020 at age 18.
Her performances, public comments, and even her hair colour changes regularly make the headlines and she also has a strong social media following – her Instagram account currently has 97.7 million followers.
