You could say he was a “bad guy.”
Billie Eilish may be one of pop music’s biggest stars, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what it’s like to be ghosted.
The “Bury a Friend” songstress recalled on “The Howard Stern Show” how a boy ditched her on their date when she was 13, leaving her stranded at a movie theater.
And the cherry on top? It happened the day before Valentine’s Day.
The 17-year-old singer recalled the ordeal in a clip from the interview published Tuesday.
According to Eilish, the date already wasn’t going so well.
“He kissed me, and then he said, ‘That was not as magical as I thought it was gonna be,’ ” she said.
Though she didn’t name names, Eilish described her date as a wealthy boy with an unlikely chaperone.
“He was super-rich, and his butler – literally, his butler – his butler was there the entire time, but in a different movie theater,” Eilish said. Apparently, the boy and his butler left without so much as a “goodbye.”
“I was stuck there,” Eilish said. “No one told me that they were gonna leave.”
Eilish thought she found a bright side to her situation.
“Then a baby came up to me,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, a baby! And it’s smiling at me!’ And I smiled, and it started screaming and crying and ran away.”
She added: “I went home and cried, and then the next day it was Valentine’s Day.”
Though the date happened years ago, Eilish shared an update to the story.
“Dude is hella ugly now,” she said.
