FLASHBACK: Big Grammy Winner Billie Eilish Said “I Think Stupid Trump is Going to Be Reelected”

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards made 18 year old star Billie Eilish their big winner, winning best album, record, song and new artist of the year.

Michelle Obama also took home a grammy for “best spoken word” album.

In December of last year, Eilish revealed she fears that President Trump is likely to get re-elected and attributes this to her belief “some people just love horrible people. It’s weird.”

Eilish is a climate and vegan activist.


The Los Angeles Times reports, the subversive anti-pop star turns 18 this month. That means she’ll be eligible to cast a vote in the U.S. for the first time in 2020, and she has her ocean eyes trained on the presidential race. The milestone isn’t lost on the influential musician given the outcome of the 2016 election, which saw President Trump elected and sowed an ample amount of skepticism in her.

“I’m going to do all my research. I don’t know what the right thing is, but I think it’s so funny when a lot of adults think that they know what’s right,” the “Bad Guy” singer said in an interview for The Times’ Grammy Awards issue of the Envelope.

“I’m pretty worried about [2020],” she added. “I think stupid Trump is probably going to get reelected, and that makes my heart break. You know, some people just love horrible people. It’s weird.”
