Hello class, take a seat. Today we will be discussing Billie Eilish's singing voice.
The 17-year-old often uses a whisper technique in her songs, and it has inspired several jokes online.
Like this one, from a person who said she "must decide whether she wants to sing or whisper":
Or this one, from a person who said her "entire discography is just ASMR, but she's singing it."
Or this one, from a person who asked why she sings "like her parents are asleep and she needs to be quiet not to wake them up."
Well, kiddos, Billie has seen your comments and she responded to them during a recent interview with Vanity Fair.
"People think that I whisper in all of my songs. I do in a couple of songs. But, I feel like people just say that when they've heard one fucking song. Like, listen to 'Wish You Were Gay'. A bitch belting," she said.
"And like, my belt is not even close to a fucking Adele belt. Adele is like a literal God," she added, praising the vocal legend.
"But, it's just different. You don't have to be shouting to be good at singing," she concluded.
So there you have it. Straight from Billie's mouth. Class is now dismissed.
