With fans like Tyler, the Creator, Elton John, and Dave Grohl, it is no surprise that Billie Eilish has rubbed off on Lana Del Rey as well.
In an interview with New York Times, Del Rey expressed her love and admiration for the 17-year-old singer. “I love Billie Eilish,” Del Rey said. “I feel like I’ve been waiting for this time in pop music culture.” Del Rey then went on to describe Eilish as “prodigious” and claims she knew the singer had potential right off the bat.

In an interview earlier this year, Eilish addressed her admiration for Del Rey as well. “I don’t want to hear that Billie Eilish is the new Lana Del Rey. Do not disrespect Lana like that!” Eilish said. “That woman has made her brand so perfect for her whole career and shouldn’t have to hear that.”
Del Rey is currently preparing for the release of her new album Norman Fucking Rockwell, which is expected to be released tomorrow.
