Finneas O’Connell, brother of a famous singer Billie Eilish, is also a singer and songwriter. In a recent interview, he spoke about his sister’s fame. Interestingly, Finneas does not envy Billie’s career at all.
“People who don’t listen to her music or don’t like her at all want to take a picture with her just to prove that they’ve seen her. As if she was Bigfoot …” – he said in an interview.
“This is dangerous because you are not treated like a human there. You are treated like a zoo animal or something,” added O’Connell.
Insisting that he is satisfied with his own success, Finneas added:
“I’m not as famous as some of the world’s most famous people, I’m not as famous as my sister or some of our friends, and I think it’s such a level of fame that I’d never really want to dip my feet in it.”
Billie Eilish gained fame with the single “Ocean Eyes” in 2015 and since then has been breaking new barriers thanks to her work breaking all genre conventions. In 2019, her debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” Was released, which debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 in the US and other charts in 17 countries. It also became the most popular digital album of the year. The disc was entirely written, produced and recorded at Billie’s hometown in Los Angeles with brother Finneas.
