    Lorde bonded with Billie Eilish over their shared experience of being a teenager in the spotlight

    The 24-year-old singer rose to prominence in 2013 when she released her hit single ‘Royals’, and has now said she and 19-year-old Billie – whose fame has skyrocketed over the last few years – have “sent a few little messages” to each other to discuss growing up in the public eye


    During an interview with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Annie told Lorde: “I see so many parallels between you guys and how you kind of came into the world.”

    And Lorde replied: “We have sent just a few little messages back in the day when she was very young. She’s so, so sweet. There’s only a handful of people who understand what that’s like, to be a teenager and have that level of scrutiny on your body and your brain.”

    The ‘Green Light’ singer also insisted it helps to have a “pretty close”

    connection with her family who keep her grounded, which Billie also has.

    She added: “Obviously she’s pretty close with her family, as am I, which I think is really helpful at that age when your world is changing. Yeah, I mean the music is awesome. She’s just doing such a good job.”

    Meanwhile, Billie recently hit out at the public perception of her, as she insisted people don’t know anything about her.

    She said: “Anytime I see an impression on the internet, it just reminds me how little the internet knows about me. Like, I really don’t share s***. I have such a loud personality that makes people feel like they know everything about me and they literally don’t at all … that I can sing. That I’m a woman. That I have a personality.”
