Wanna Feel Old? Billie Eilish Not Knowing Van Halen Will Make You Feel That Way

To be quite honest I don't know who they are. I know of them, I believe they played rock (?) music. I must confuss, I did originally think there was just one musician whos name was Van Halen. 

Jimmy Kimmel was asking Billie Eilish about artists from the 80s on his show, and while she knew most of them Run DMC, Huey Lewis and Van Halen were foreign concepts to the singer. 

"You’re making me look so dumb,” she said.

“It’s not a matter of being dumb,” he responded.

“If you ask me questions about 1943, I probably wouldn’t know the answers either.”

This has since sparked a, quite frankly, odd debate on twitter.


Honestly it's exhausting just reading the comments. Here's the interview if you want a squizz!
