Billie Eilish says her Grammys are "an exciting thing for the kids who make music in their bedroom"

Billie Eilish has shared her thoughts on scooping the "Big Four" Grammys last month, "it's an exciting thing for the kids who make music in their bedroom".

Last month, Billie Eilish became the youngest person ever, and first person since 1981, to win the "Big Four" Grammy Awards - Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Best New Artist.

In a new interview with Vogue, Eilish has discussed how she feels about her win. She says, "That shit was fucking crazy. If anything it's an exciting thing for the kids who make music in their bedroom. We're making progress, I think, in that place - kids who don't have enough money to use studios."

Eilish also explained why she chooses to record music at her family home rather than a studio, "I hate not seeing daylight. I hate that they smell weird. I hate recording booths. I hate being far away and singing alone in a room. In the beginning, all we would hear was, 'Let’s put you in the studio with this person and that person'. So we did go into the studio and work with this producer or writer or artist or whatever, and it was fine, but nothing ever did what me and Finneas alone do. And I think it’s how we’ll keep doing it."

Last week, Eilish asked fans to stop impersonating her for public reactions. She wrote on her Instagram Story, "please stop doing this shit. It is not safe for you and it is mean to the people who don't know any better. You make me look bad."
