Billie Eilish asked same interview questions, TWO years after becoming a much bigger star

In 2017, Vanity Fair asked then-15-year-old rising star Billie Eilish a series of questions. A year later, they brought her back and asked the same questions. In that year, she had jumped from 257K Instagram followers to 6.3M. That interview revealed how fame had changed her life in just one short year. Well, in this new, much-anticipated interview, Billie is 17, has over 40M followers, has hosted and performed on SNL, and was just nominated for six Grammy awards. Same questions, same surprisingly self-reflective and humble young artist.

As of this writing, she's now 18 and has over 43M IG followers. She's also since won two American Music Awards (New Artist and Alternative Artist).
