Billie Eilish Is The First Billboard No. 1 Artist Born In The 2000s, And These Facts Put That In Perspective
She's the first artist born in the 2000s to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
That's right, Billie Eilish, born on Dec. 18, 2001, is officially this first person born in the 2000s to achieve this milestone. The success! The talent! The fame! The youth!
Anyway, here are some more fun facts that'll make you feel positively ancient and positively in awe of what Billie's accomplished so far:
Speaking of music, Billie was born AFTER the first iPod was released.
Kidz Bop is also older than Billie — the first CD came out on Oct. 9, 2001...
...it featured covers of songs like "All Star," "Oops...I Did It Again," and "Blue (Da Ba Dee)".
Shrek came out a full 8 months before Billie was born...
...and so did Spy Kids!
In other TV news, Lizzie McGuire premiered on Disney Channel almost a full year before Billie was born...
...and Billie's favorite show, The Office, premiered when she was 3.
PSA: This reaction GIF from Titanic that I needed to use to finish this post happened four years before Billie was born. 🙃
Anyway, congrats again, Billie! Can't wait to see what you do in the NEXT 17 years!
