Drake labelled 'creepy' by fans after Billie Eilish reveals he texts her
Recently, 17-year-old superstar Billie Eilish sat down with Vanity Fair to talk about where her career's at in 2019. It was also a chance to discuss how the young singer-songwriter has changed since her 2017 and 2018 interviews with the publication.
However, following the in-depth interview, it has now come to people's attention that the teenager and 33-year-old rapper Drake text each other.
"Drake is like the nicest dude I've ever spoken to. I mean, I've only like texted him, but he's so nice," she says in the interview. "Like, he does not need to be nice, you know what I mean? He's at a level in his life where he doesn't need to be nice, but he is, you know?"
A number of those who watched the interview have since taken to social media to brand Drake's behaviour as "creepy".
"is it bad that i’m watching a billie eilish interview and she’s like “drake is like the nicest dude i’ve spoken to” and the f*ckin sirens started going off in my brain lol," wrote one.
Drake gives a special shoutout to Arya Stark in his acceptance speech for the Top Billboard 200 Album:
Other Twitter users accused the Hotline Bling hitmaker of "preying" on young women.
"Just thinking about Billie Eilish saying she dresses in baggy clothes to avoid being sexualised and then revealing Drake is texting her," another added. "It's almost as if it doesn't matter how we dress or present ourselves, men will always prey on young women."
But not everyone took the revelation in such a negative light.
However, last year, Drake was criticised after the then-14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown revealed that she and the 33-year-old are friends - which a number of Twitter users picked up on this time around.
"Does anyone else think it’s strange that Drake just has Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown’s numbers?" one Twitter user asked. "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?"
Another added: "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."
Drake is yet to respond.
