Billie Eilish gave insight into what attending her first Met Gala was really like. Revealing in a recent interview that it was kind of like being back at school.
Plunking down with Howard Stern recently, Billie was requested her interpretation of probably the starriest evening of the year. “It’s nuts,” she said of the occasion. “It’s celebrities ing. That is the thing it is.”
One perk of the evening for Billie was being surrounded by other people who are in a similar industry to her, meaning that she didn’t have to worry about phones being shoved in her face. That is something she said she’s grown to dislike over time.
This year’s Met Gala was a first for the Grammy-winning singer, who donned an Oscar de la Renta gown after convincing the fashion house to no longer use fur in its designs.
“It was an honor to wear this dress knowing that going forward Oscar de la Renta will be completely fur-free!!!!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I am beyond thrilled that … the entire team heard me on this issue, and have now made a change that makes an impact for the greater good, not only for animals but also for our planet and environment too.”
She went on: “I’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. I urge all designers to do the same.”
