- Billie Eilish is at the top of the music game. I mean, six American Music Award nominations as a first-time nominee? Come on, Billie! But is she ready to give it all up at the ripe old age of 17? What's up, y'all? It's Emile Ennis Jr here with Clevver News. Happy Halloween, I'm glad you're here because we have some tea to discuss. Because Billie Eilish is questioning not only her future in the industry, but also her love for music in general after a few rough tours. I know, I know, this might come as a surprise, but this was all revealed during her Musicians on Musicians interview with Rolling Stone. Billie sat down with another Billie, I'm talking about Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, which was incredible, by the way. More on that in a minute. And the two mused over their respective careers. When asked about new music, the "Bad Guy" singer opened up, telling the magazine, "my next album haunts me". And take a listen to what she says next. - I don't know, there was a period where I was like, do I even enjoy music? Y'know, traveling and being alone all the time, never seeing anyone and then even when you come back, like, everyone's kind of moved on. - Now, she did clarify, saying she didn't mean performing. She said "the shows are always my favorite part. This last tour I went on was the first I've ever enjoyed. I feel like I have this amazing thing that now I actually see." Yeah, we see it too. Billie looks like she's having the time of her life onstage during her "When We All Fall Asleep" tour, with thousands of screaming fans jumping along with her but to be fair, the road has been a bit rough for the young singer. We get why touring can be hard. First of all, Billie has been injured on tour twice this year. You probably noticed Billie sporting an ankle boot at several shows in the last few months. It was super obvious in her now-legendary performance on "SNL" in September. Still can't get over those special effects on that, by the way. But that injury was actually from a show Billie performed in Italy at the end of August, and when it happened on stage, the pain was so severe that Billie cried and ran off-stage. But like the bad b she is, Billie returned to finish her performance and told her supportive fans what happened. - This is so sweet, oh my Lord. (audience cheering) Dude, I sprained my ankle immediately! That's so embarrassing! (crowd laughing) And dude, I sprained this one like a month ago! - Injuring both legs in less than a month is no joke, and it's obviously taken a toll on the young singer's love for touring. Not to mention, Billie's dealt with some wild fan encounters on the road, too. Remember when her ring went missing during a show a few weeks ago? She was performing at Austin City Limits earlier this month and went down into the crowd during "Ocean Eyes", which fans loved. But when she got back onstage, Billie revealed her ring was gone. - Somebody stole my (beep)ing ring! (audience booing) Ugh, I guess it's my fault. Keep that (beep). - Okay, this story actually has a happy ending. Against all odds, the ring, a faux diamond-encrusted band, was returned and this is actually crazy. Twitter detectives accused a woman in the crowd of stealing the ring right off Billie's finger and you can see her talking to a security guard in this video. - My ring fell off when I held her hand! It's right there, can you hand it to me, please? - TMZ tracked down the fan, who claimed she didn't steal the ring but retrieved it in hopes of giving it back to the singer. She says she gave it to a concert staff member and went on her way. Well, looks like she was telling the truth, because lo and behold, Billie Instagrammed the safe return of her ring, saying, "thank you to whoever turned it in". Okay, happy ending aside, we can see how life on the road has its challenges, but enough hardship to wanna give up music entirely? We certainly hope not, because despite dealing with frustrating injuries and overzealous fans, Billie seems to really love and appreciate music, and not just her own. Listen to how she gushes over her musical influences in the Rolling Stone interview. - I remember finding like, Childish Gambino and Tyler, the Creator, and just feeling like, wow, this is what I've been needing to have. - And of course, Billie got to fawn over one of her idols while sitting right next to him, talk about an amazing moment, because the two Billies bonded over the challenges of the music industry and touring, and you can really see how much Billie looks up to someone who's taken this path before. - And the fact that like, he's still sane, he's still gorgeous? (laughing) He's still, he's still him? Having gone through all this (beep)? It's just like... - And just in case you're wondering, yes, Billie Joe Armstrong is just as big a fan of Billie Eilish as she is of him. Maybe more, because the Green Day singer did a little gushing of his own when he said, "You're playing and then all of the sudden you got everybody to jump at the same time. That's when I discovered you for the first time and then I was like, holy (beep), your (beep)ing music is really good." And if you need any further proof that he's a true fan, Billie Joe Armstrong even sports Billie Eilish merch. Last year the Green Day singer posted this photo on Instagram, wondering "how do I get one of these headbands?" Obviously, it didn't take long for Billie Joe to get his hands on a Billie Eilish bandana, which he wore proudly. He even used the hashtag "billiegang" like a true stan. Okay, but now we wanna hear from you. Billie is clearly having a tough time touring, but do you think this could really delay new music? Or worse, make her give it up all together? (whooshing) (chill drum music)
