Namely, those questions are: What? How? Huh?
Billie Eilish, 17 years old, is currently at the top of all the charts in the world but that doesn’t mean she isn’t human. Humans all make mistakes, and Eilish’s latest comes in the form of her believing that the Spice Girls were fictional until recently.
In all fairness to her, everything about the Spice Girls – and the 90s in general – was completely ridiculous so it wouldn’t be too unreasonable for someone born this millennium to surmise that maybe they weren’t real. But still…ZIG A ZIG AHH?!
In a recent interview with Capital FM, via NME, Eilish confessed that she thought the band was made for the movie Spiceworld.
She thought it was “a made-up movie about a group of girls who sang.”
“I thought all the music was written for the movie,” she said.
“I thought all the characters were cast for those characters. I didn’t figure it out until two years ago.”
However, Eilish and Spice girl Mel C actually linked up last year when the latter saw the teen superstar perform in London.

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing @wherearetheavocados rock a sold out @o2sbe. I have never seen ‘the bush’ bounce like that! Billie is an extraordinary talent and seeing young girls screaming with her every move and singing every word of her lyrics, gave me goosebumps. Billie Eilish you are a phenomenon and I salute you. I can’t wait to see what the future holds! #girlpower
