People Are Calling Out Drake After Billie Eilish Revealed He Texts Her

"Why is Drake texting 17-year-old Billie Eilish?"

This is Billie Eilish.

You know, the "Bad Guy" singer. The 17-year-old made a splash this year with her Grammy-nominated debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

Recently, Billie did an interview with Vanity Fair and revealed that one of the most famous people in her phone is Drake.

"Drake is, like, the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to," she said. "I mean, I’ve only, like, texted him, but he’s so nice. Like, he does not need to be nice, you know what I mean?"

Billie continued, saying, "He’s at a level in his life where he doesn’t need to be nice, but he is, you know?"

Well, her revelation didn't sit well with fans. Many called out the 33-year-old rapper's friendship with Billie (who turns 18 on Dec. 18), noting the 15-year age gap between them:

i don't blame billie eilish one bit for thinking it's cool that drake wants to be her friend. i loved it when i was 17 and adult men wanted to know me. it's only in hindsight that i found it weird, and it's really on adults to interrogate what "being nice" actually means here

why is drake talking to Billie eilish

Others pointed to a similar situation last year when Millie Bobby Brown, then 14, revealed that Drake also texts her:

On a scale of 1 to 10, we would give her an 11. Millie Bobby Brown looks fabulous on the #emmys gold carpet, and she revealed that Drake is the man behind the curtain when it comes to her dating life! Hey, stranger things have happened! 😂

The actor later defended their friendship on Instagram, writing, "U guys are weird...For real. I'm lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance."

Still, a lot of fans found his texting "creepy":

can we talk about drake texting billie eilish and millie bobby brown... he’s a whole ass grown man and they’re two underage girls... that’s some creepy shit if you ask me..

Billie Eilish just said in her vanity fair video that Drake is the nicest person ever and she has only talked to him through text. I am sorry but after news came out a while ago that 33 year old drake was texting 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown, this is creepy as hell.

Does anyone else think it’s strange that Drake just has Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown’s numbers? It’s definitely possible he’s just being a role model and it has to do with marketing but why’s a 32 year old man texting girls under the age of 17?

This person thought Drake might be embarrassed by the "creepy" headlines after Billie's interview:

Drake when Billie Eilish tells Vanity Fair they text all the time:

Some people thought Drake's texting of Billie and Millie was simply harmless:

Has Drake actually done something wronv by texting Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown? If he has anything close to romantic intentions, it's definitely creepy, but I haven't heard anything that suggests it's anything other than friendship.

Honestly I think #Drake texting #BillieEilish isn’t a problem. Drake seems like a great guy to me and Eilish isn’t saying it’s something weird so she should be fine and he should as well
