Sweet revenge. Billie Eilish still remembers the time Jimmy kimmel asked her about 1980s pop culture – and she found a way to get it back for the ambush.
“Do you remember the last time I was here?” the Grammy winner, 19, asked the talk show host, 51, during the Wednesday, Oct. 13 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! “You made me look a little stupid.”
The “Bad Guy” singer was referring to her 2019 appearance on the show when Kimmel asked her about trivia from 1984, the year he was 17 – the same age she was then. The pop star was taken aback by references to ’80s staples including Van Halen, Run-DMC and the Cabbage Patch Kids.
On Wednesday, however, the “Happier Than Ever” singer claimed she was “playing the game” in part at the time. “I thought it was funny,” she told Kimmel. “Everyone thought I was really serious and didn’t know anything, but here’s your quiz, okay?” “

“Think about it, Jimmy,” she joked. “How old were you in 2014? He replied, “So old I can’t even add it up.”
The coronavirus pandemic has forced Eilish to cancel most of her 2020 concert tour, but she is making up for lost time with a loaded fall. She co-chaired the 2021 Met Gala in September with Timothée Chalamet, Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman, launching a glamorous new look in a stunning Oscar de la Renta dress.
Earlier this month, James Bond fans finally got to hear his theme song for No time to die in action during the film after the global health crisis delayed its release by more than a year. She is also preparing for her 2022 world tour, which is scheduled to begin in New Orleans next February.
Meanwhile, his latest album, Happier than ever, has received critical acclaim. “The album was born out of a lot of soul searching,” she said. She last month, noting that she produced it as coronavirus lockdowns hit across the world. “Happier than ever is really just me dealing with trauma.
