While she is one of the most popular singer and songwriter right now, Billie Eilish learned it all from her mother
Although she is very close to her brother, Finneas O’Connell, they both had a mutual teacher who taught them everything about music. At a very early age, their mother, Maggie Baird, decided to homeschool Billie Eilish and her brother. An actress and teacher herself, she taught them the basics of songwriting and music. This led to the brother-sister duo getting interested in music and pursuing it as a profession. At the age of 13, Billie Eilish started to work on songs. Last year, her debut album, Where Do We Go When We Fall Asleep, topped the UK Album Charts and Billboard 200. Similarly, her latest album, Happier Than Ever, has won her two Grammy Awards.
Recently, she shared a clip of her music video which she directed herself
While it is no secret that her brother and mother help her with the music video,s Billie Eilish decided to try something new this time. For the music video of Male Fantasy, she put the director’s hat on and took charge. In an Instagram post, she announced the news and said:
“finallyyyyyyyyyy!! directed and EDITED BY meeeeeeeeeee! one of my first videos to edit all alone and it was such a fun task and very very satisfying. see you tomorrow ;))))))”.
Along with a successful music career, Billie Eilish is very active in various causes and is the youngest person to win PETA’s person of the year award. This came after Oscar De La Renta went fur-free because of her animal rights advocacy.
