It was all about the O’Connell family in a new interview starring Bille Eilish.
The singer, born Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, 17, chatted with Nardwuar about her career and love of music before her brother Finneas, mom Maggie and dad Patrick joined in on the fun.
Throughout the 16-minute video, filmed in Vancouver, viewers learn interesting facts about the O’Connell family, like how Maggie loves musician Kurt Vile, Finneas has an obsession with collecting guitar straps and Patrick was once in an episode of “The West Wing”.
“Me and my dad are very, very similar,” Eilish revealed. “One of my best friends, Zoe, who I grew up with since we were 3, told me that she did not understand my dad for years and years. Then, one day, she was ‘Oh, he’s you!’ And immediately it was, ‘Oh, we know him.’ She said to me that I am my dad. And we are very similar.”
Eilish is currently on tour, gearing up to hit Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on June 11.
