Ah, celebs. They’re literally just randos.
At least, that’s according to Billie Eilish, who came upon this epiphany while attending this year’s Met Gala, of which she was a co-chair. She opened up about the experience in a recent interview on The Howard Stern Show.
“It’s nuts,” Eilish said of the annual fashion event that celebrates the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s new Costume Institute exhibition (this year’s theme was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”).
“It’s famous people famous-people-ing,” Eilish continued. “That’s what it is.”
“Who did you meet there? Other famous people?” Stern asked.

“I mean, I hear, ‘Billie!’ I turn around and it’s Frank Ocean. I mean, what the f*ck is that? You know? What the f*ck is he doing there? He’s Frank Ocean,” she answered. “But then you look around and it’s like, ‘Oh, Kid Cudi,’ and, ‘Oh … everybody else.
“The main thing that night made me think or feel was how famous people are just literally nobodies. Just randos,” she added. “And it’s so weird. I mean, I was like, wow, all these people are just somebody that’s in class with you, and you think this person’s kind of annoying, or you really like this person, you get along with this person, and everybody’s just, like, embarrassed and insecure about what they’re doing and saying.”

Despite realising that famous people are, indeed, people, the Grammy-winning singer noted that the Met Gala experience was still a memorable one. “It was amazing though. It just was beautiful in there,” she said. “What’s nice about other people that are in the same kind of world that you’re in is they’re not getting their phone out and shoving it in your face, because they don’t want that themselves. And that is really relieving, because that’s my problem with the world, is no matter what’s going on or where you are, there’s just people [who] shove that phone in your face.”
