Billie Eilish: Same Interview, One Year Apart | Vanity Fair

On October 18th, 2017, after a busy day of promotional interviews in New York City, Billie Eilish met with Vanity Fair to discuss the 15-year-old’s breakthrough success. On October 18th, 2018, after a long day of pre-tour rehearsals, Billie spoke with VF again to answer the exact same questions and look back at a time capsule of her answers from last year. Her Instagram follower count grew from 257K to 6.3 million. She went from playing crowds of 500 fans to playing arenas for more than 40,000. See how Billie’s life changed over the last year.

    I don’t know who she is, but she looks so different even tho it’s only been a year of difference between a video to another. She looks so sad, so lonely, so broken and so tired now. A year ago she looked so bright, so happy. What happened to her? I hope she’s okay.
