Billie Eilish calls out Jimmy Kimmel for making her look ‘dumb’ during her last appearance on his show
The singer joined the late-night host Wednesday to promote her new album, “Happier Than Ever,” which gave her an opportunity to address the previous interview she did at 17. Because she was so young, Kimmel decided to ask her some questions about things that were popular when the host was her age in 1984.
Eilish was pretty stumped when it came to knowing things like Run-DMC, Huey Lewis, Cabbage Patch Kids and more. Kimmel particularly noted that she made him feel old for not being able to name a single member of Van Halen, prompting a response from bassist, Wolfgang Van Halen, who let her off the hook, according to E! News.
“Wait, really quick,” Eilish said while smiling. “Do you remember last time I was here?” When Jimmy confirmed that he did, she continued, “And you made me look a little stupid.”
“I thought it was funny because I was playing along, and everybody thought I was actually serious and didn’t know anything,” she said before admitting that she genuinely had no clue who Van Halen was at the time.
