DUBAI: Most teenagers were obsessed with Canadian singer and songwriter Justin Bieber when he first rose to fame.
But teen singing sensation Billie Eilish’s infatuation was on another level.
During her Apple Music podcast “me & dad radio,” the 18-year-old’s mother, Maggie Baird, revealed that she and husband Patrick were once concerned about their daughter’s all-consuming love of the star, and especially his 2012 song “As Long As You Love Me.”
“I just want to say, we did consider taking you to therapy because you were in so much pain over Justin Bieber,” the mother told the now Grammy-award winning singer.
This shocked even Eilish, who replied: “You did?! Oh that’s embarrassing.”
“Driving to the dance studio with Billie, playing this song, sobbing and then driving back and sobbing,” the mother recalled.
