Billie Eilish, the 20-year-old pop star, has gained the attention of music lovers around the world. Her first debut song was released when she was 14. The “Ocean Eyes” singer has millions of fans and well-wishers all over the world.
Therefore, people are naturally curious about Billie’s personal life. They ask questions like: what’s Billie’s sexual orientation and religion?
One of the most common reasons for this is Billie Eilish’s character. As you all know, the Grammy-award winning singer is quite outspoken, and she is different from other artists.
Some people don’t appreciate her hard work and as a result, they write negative comments about the pop star on social media. Among those haters is Dave Daubenmire, who is a Christian conspiracy theorist.
He claimed that Satan is manipulating Billie Eilish to steal everyone’s children. Dave Daubenmire was furious because Eilish is getting record-breaking views on her music videos. He also asked the question, “Do you think Billie Eilish came up with this idea on her own?”
Billie Eilish’s Thoughts about Religion:
Religion is a very personal and sensitive thing to people. Your beliefs are yours, but sometimes your beliefs change. According to Billie Eilish, she used to be religious throughout her childhood. She spoke about this in an interview with the Apple Music podcast “me & dad radio.”
She said, “When I was little, like when I was a little kid, I was super religious for no damn reason,” she also added, “My family never was religious. I didn’t know anyone that was religious. And, for some reason, as a little girl I just was incredibly religious, and that went on for years.”
Billie continues the story, “And then, at one point, I don’t know what happened: it just completely went away. It was weird, because then I had a couple years of being almost anti-religious for no reason, and I don’t know why that happened, I don’t know what made me that way. And then, after that period of my life, I’ve loved the idea of other beliefs.”
The Present Religious Beliefs of Billie Eilish:
To learn this, we need to go back to the Apple Music podcast “me & dad radio” interview because, in that program, Billie Eilish talked about her current beliefs.
She said, “I love talking about what people believe in and hearing why they believe in it and what makes them believe in it. And especially if I don’t agree, because I like to listen and I like to understand. And I think it’s really important to be supportive of all beliefs in the world and all opinions and not shoot people down for what they believe in.”
After that, Billie’s father, Patrick O’Connell spoke about it as well. He said, “We didn’t really talk about religion at all. It wasn’t in our household very much. And you [Billie Eilish] just ….. Believed. He also added, “You had all these kinds of organized thoughts about the whole thing. And I thought it was pretty marvelous. I didn’t object to it. I didn’t say: ‘You can’t believe that.'”
Eilish came up with a reply, “No, you guys were really supportive of me. But I don’t not believe and I don’t do believe: I’m in a very neutral position. I’m open to every belief, pretty much. And yeah, I love the idea that there’s a God. So why not? How would I know? I’m not going to say I know, I don’t — nobody knows.”
Billie Eilish just said in her latest interview with Vanity that one of the important things to her is the Lord keeping her family safe. She never sold her soul, and she’s been saying it about a hundred times now.
Billie didn’t mention the name of any particular religion that she follows, so it remains unclear to her fans whether she is religious or not.
But does it really matter to the music lovers whether Billie Eilish is religious or not? She’s an incredible artist that should be her primary identity.
