Billie Eilish’s lyrics are so sad, it’s like they’re drenched in a never-ending rainstorm. On the other hand, Olivia Rodrigo’s lyrics are like a burst of sunshine on a perfect summer day.
And guess what? These two have managed to form a friendship that’s as strong as their contrasting emotions, HeTexted.com reports.
Billie Eilish’s latest banger “What Was I Made For?” might have been penned for the Barbie movie, but it’s also a reflection of her own struggles in the midst of global superstardom.
And let me tell you, she’s not just worried about herself when it comes to the rollercoaster ride of fame. Oh no, she’s got a soft spot for Olivia Rodrigo too.
Billie spilled the tea that her track “Goldwing” was actually inspired by her concerns for Olivia. Talk about being a protective big sister!

Eilish sees herself in all those young girls and feels the urge to shield them from the harsh realities of the entertainment industry.
The singer explains that she felt a sense of unease when Olivia Rodrigo started gaining popularity.
She describes Rodrigo as a young and delicate individual, and being familiar with the acting industry, Eilish felt a need to protect her.
This feeling of protectiveness extends to everyone, as Eilish is aware of the strange and unpredictable nature of fame.
The song serves as a cautionary tale about the deceptive nature of the industry, where people will say what you want to hear and then abandon you, treating you like a mere souvenir to be sold later on.
Their relationship with one another goes back a few tears ago, to be more precise since 2020-2021 after Olivia stated that her dream collaboration would be with Billie.
After that, a series of pictures was posted by Eilish on Instagram, where she hugged close family and friends. Rodrigo was in the photos too.

They both attended each other concerns but till now they have not been spotted that much together unless they are at an event where both are invited or their shows.
Billie Eilish has also shared her thoughts on her relationship with women and womanhood.
She expressed that she has always found it difficult to connect with girls, but loves them as individuals and is physically attracted to them.
Eilish also mentioned that she has strong bonds with the women in her life, but feels intimidated by their beauty and presence.
Is there some sort of connection between her and Rodrigo, who conveniently arrived on this planet just 14 months after her? Or is there some other mysterious emotion at play here?
Eilish has also shared her thoughts on her gender identity. She prefers to be referred to with she/her pronouns, although she has never truly felt like a typical girl.

That Eilish doesn’t conform to any specific label, and it’s not our place to assign one to her.
However, her recent remarks do clarify one thing: she genuinely has an attraction toward women and that got us wondering if there may be feelings of love in her and Olivia’s relationship.
Rodrigo has been recently linked to actor Louis Partridge as they have been spotted a few times being all lovey dove with one another.
As for Billie, she ended her relationship with Jesse Rutherford at the beginning of the year after being together for a few months.
