Billie Eilish: FINNEAS discusses duo’s home studio in 2019

As one of the biggest stars in the world right now – with multiple Grammys, an Oscar and BRIT Awards to her name – Billie Eilish is set to achieve another landmark career achievement tonight when she takes to the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival.

The No Time To Die singer, 20, will be the youngest solo act to date to headline on the iconic main stage at Worthy Farm, after first performing on the Other Stage back in 2019.

It’s been a whirlwind few years for Billie, who rose to global fame when her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? debuted atop the US Billboard 200 and UK Albums Chart in 2019.

Despite being barely out of her teens Billie is already halfway there on her journey to gain EGOT status, and thanks to her multiple hit singles and albums is reportedly worth a whopping $30 million (£25 million).

Alongside entertaining her strong fanbase with her musical output, the singer has also amassed a number of supporters thanks to candidly discuss mental health issues.

Earlier this week, Billie revealed how her separation anxiety resulted in her sharing a bed with her parents and her brother until the age of 11.

The Bad Guy hitmaker grew up in a humble two-bedroom bungalow in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles with her parents, Maggie Biard and Patrick O’Connell, and her brother – and co-writer – Finneas O’Connell.

“I couldn’t be away from my parents,” Billie told Sunday Times Magazine. “I was worried about what would happen to them, I was worried about what would happen to me, I was worried about being forgotten.”

The Happier Than Ever singer went on to explain how her debilitating anxiety caused her to spend parts of her childhood sharing a bed with her big brother and two parents.

The publication reports how the “whole family shared a bed until Finneas was ten,” and Billie stayed “with her parents until she was 11.”

Billie was still residing in her childhood back in 2020, when she took home the BRIT Award for International Solo Female Artist – even recording the title track for the James Bond flick No Time To Die in the L.A bungalow.

The multi-award winning singer took James Corden for a tour around her family abode during an episode of Carpool Karaoke in the same year.

Billie took The Late, Late Show presenter, 43, on a mini tour of the California property – taking James into her brother’s old bedroom that also doubled as a recording studio.

The single room featured a bed adorned with multi-coloured cushions, floral curtains and a nearby piano.

Cameras didn’t get to see Billie’s bedroom, but the singer-songwriters did tease viewers that her private space featured a lot of red and was home to her pet tarantula.

Despite amassing a multi-million pound fortune since breaking onto the music scene, Billie has no desire to up sticks and move into a mansion.

“My relationship with my home has not changed, just like with my parents and my brother,” the star told V Magazine in March this year.

“I think it’s a bit jarring for some people who grew up with me or haven’t seen me in a long time…[they] come over to see us and see that it’s exactly the same. It’s as if you walked in here and it’s 2003. There’s no sign that a famous person exists within 200 feet of this area.”

She added: “I mean, it’s really funny. I have to remind myself what my life actually is to the outside world, because I just forget sometimes. My life really, honestly feels the same as it did when I was a child…except that I don’t have any friends.”

Sadly for Billie, she hasn’t always felt safe and comfortable in her beloved childhood home.

In 2019, the address of her family home was leaked online and within hours three fans showed up outside her property.

For a short period after the privacy breach – which saw an older man drive over from San Diego to stand outside her home – Billie and her family enlisted a bodyguard to sleep in the living room.

“It was really traumatizing,” she recalled at the time. “I completely don’t feel safe in my house anymore, which sucks. I love my house.”

According to Velvet Ropes, the star’s 1,208 square foot family home in the Highland Park was built in 1912 and was last on the market back in 2001 – reportedly being snapped up, presumbling by Billie’s family, for $240,000.

It’s estimated the property is currently worth around $763,400.
