There’s no denying it, Billie Eilish is the woman of the moment. Some might even say, the Justin Bieber of 2020.
And that is why the 25-year-old Canadian superstar, who found fame at a very early age, has vowed to protect the 18-year-old Bad Guy singer from the industry, so she doesn’t go through what he went through while he was growing up in the public eye…
“I definitely feel protective of her,” Justin Bieber said in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe.
“It was hard for me, being that young and being in the industry and not knowing where to turn and everyone telling me they loved me, and just turning their back on you in a second.
“Yeah, it’s hard, because I want her to know that she can count on me. But at the end of the day I’m never going to force myself to be in a relationship with her, it has to be natural, right?
“So I just kind of let her do her thing and if she ever needs me, I’m gonna be here for her, but just protecting those moments because people take for granted encounters.”
He didn’t end there, as he began to tear up before adding that he doesn’t “want her to go through anything” that he went through at her age…
“I just wanna protect her, you know? I don’t want her to lose it. I don’t want her to go through anything I went through. I don’t wish that upon anybody. So if she ever needs me, I’m just a call away.”
We like this look on him! And the sentiment didn’t go unnoticed, as Billie Eilish responded to his comments in the cutest way…
The singer – who has just become the youngest musician in history to record the James Bond theme song – shared a clip from the interview to her Instagram, with the caption, “stream changes”, to encourage her fans to listen to JB’s new record which was released on February 14.
She also added a series of old pictures of herself wearing Justin Bieber merchandise, and also shared a picture of her childhood bedroom which featured pictures of the Canadian musician on the wall. Safe to say, she wants everyone to know that she has been a Justin Bieber fan for years!
And to top it all off, Justin replied to her comment with, “Love you !!!” while his wife Hailey Baldwin, now Hailey Bieber, responded with a heart emoji. Many other A-listers, from Jameela Jamil to Naomi Campbell, also reacted to the post with positive messages.
We love it when the music industry, and A-listers in general, come together to support each other!
