Aside from talking about her ‘Yesterday’ cover in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the ‘Bad Guy’ hitmaker admits she felt somewhat out of place at the coveted awards ceremony.
Billie Eilish wasn’t a fan of her performance at the Oscars last weekend (February 09), calling it “trash.”
The 18-year-old singer performed a cover of The Beatles‘ “Yesterday” during the In Memoriam segment, when pictures of people the entertainment world has lost during the past year were shown on a screen.
However, during an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, set to air on Friday, Billie revealed she was poorly for the awards ceremony, and doesn’t think her rendition of the tune was one of her best.
“I was sick for all of the Oscars, I bombed that performance,” she said. “That was trash.”
Billie went on to admit she felt somewhat out of place during the Oscars, because she didn’t know many of the famous faces who were there.
“I’m not used to that,” she said. “At least the Grammys wasn’t as scary because it was, like, artists,” she explained. “And it felt like my people, it felt like, ‘Oh, look, a bunch of artists!’ And I knew a lot of them already and I’d met them and they knew of me.”
The teenager was speaking to promote her new song from the film “No Time to Die“. She penned the tune with brother FINNEAS in just three days, and said having the chance to work with her sibling on something so massive as a Bond theme was a lifelong dream.
“You know what’s funny about it, like two years ago, we were like, wouldn’t it be crazy to make a song for the Bond movies, and, like, wouldn’t that be dope?” she explained. “And so, kind of for two years-ish, we’ve been subconsciously trying to… in our own way. And, like, we’ve written songs that have never come out that are, like, oh, this sounds like Bond, like, this would be dope, like, it would never happen, whatever. And then this offer came up and we were like, ‘Ahhhh!’ ”
