Last November, during her annual interview with Vanity Fair, Billie Eilish said she had Drake‘s phone number and that the two texted each other.
At the time, Eilish was only 17, and the revelation stirred controversy online, with many calling Drake, 33, “creepy” for texting a minor.
Three months on, Eilish has responded to the backlash and defended the Toronto-based rapper in her third front cover interview with Vogue.
“Everybody’s so sensitive,” she said. “A grown man can’t be a fan of an artist? There are so many people that the internet should be more worried about.”
Eilish told Vanity Fair last year the two had “only texted,” adding that he’s “like, the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to.”
“The internet is such a stupid a– mess right now,” the Bad Guy singer told Vogue.
