Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford attend the 11th Annual LACMA Art + Film Gala at Los Angeles County Museum of Art on November 05, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

Billie Eilish is speaking publicly about her boyfriend Jesse Rutherford for the first time. As part of her yearly Vanity Fair interview, titled “Same Interview, Sixth Year,” the 20-year-old pop star opened up about dating The Neighbourhood vocalist, 31. “It’s really cool and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it,” Eilish said of her relationship. “I managed to get…to a point in my life…where I not only was known by a person that I thought was the hottest f—ing f—er alive, but pulled his a–! Are you kidding me? Can we just [get a] round of applause for me? Thank you, Jesse Rutherford, everyone.”

Eilish continued, adding that she “locked that motherf—er down,” and that she’s “really inspired by this person, and, you know, he’s inspired by me.” Rutherford and Eilish have been slowly bringing their relationship into the spotlight after sparking romance rumors last month and later with their red carpet debut at the LACMA Art + Film Gala 2022, wearing coordinated Gucci pajama looks. The couple — who initially met sometime during or before December 2017 — spent Halloween together this year. Eilish made their relationship “Instagram official” with a photo of them in a couple’s costume that had social media in a frenzy. Eilish and Rutherford poked fun at their 11-year age gap with her dressed up as a baby, wearing a bib and bonnet, while he went as an old man.

Fans chimed in on the comments section about the choice of costumes writing things like, “last slide is interesting babe…” and “SO WE POSTING JESSE NOW??” One fan wrote, “that last slide is gonna haunt her in a few years when she’s older and realises that a 31 year old has no business with someone that young.” Another said, “strange costume idea.” Calling out Billie for her song and music video to “Your Power” they commented, “*writes a song about age and power dynamics* *makes fun of it with a halloween costume*” Another wrote, “lets not pass over the fact she’s dressed as a baby and jesse as an old man. jokes about paedophilia arent funny.”

Eilish’s older brother and producer Finneas O’Connell, 25, approved of the relationship in an interview with E! News at the GQ Men of the Year party last week, saying “Listen, as long as she’s happy, I’m happy.”

Billie Eilish's 10 Best Music Videos

  • 10. Lo Vas A Olvidar

    Billie Eilish and Rosalía’s angelic voices meld together in “Lo Vas A Olvidar,” in which Billie sings most of the song in Spanish. The music video is minimal, allowing the artists’ emotions to shine.

  • 9. bad guy

    Billie gets colorful in the music video for “bad guy,” emerging from a bright yellow backdrop. It all gets wackier from there, with Billie riding around with her squad in a tiny car, to decapitated heads in plastic bags filled with water, to dancing on a colorful carpet that’s reminiscent of The Big Comfy Couch.

  • 8. my future

    Sometimes the best music videos don’t involve real people at all, and that definitely applies to Billie’s “my future,” which shows us an adorable animated Billie in a forest in the pouring rain surrounded by little creatures. As the sun begins to breakthrough, the forest comes alive.

  • 7. when the party's over

    This video puts it’s sole focus on a cup of black liquid in an all-white room. Billie is dressed from head-to-toe in white, with the exception of her bright blue hair and mountain of jewelry. Her clothes and face don’t remain pristine after she drinks the glass, though.

  • 6. hostage

    Billie takes a shot at interpretive dance in “hostage,” and seriously takes our breath away with the emotion behind her moves. She once again chooses an all-white room as her stage, which allows us as viewers to focus more on the story.

  • 5. NDA

    One of her newer songs from Happier Than Ever, Billie chooses a lone road as the backdrop. As the song progresses, so does the scenery behind her, with cars zooming past the star as she falls down to her knees in agony.

  • 4. Your Power

    The power of this song deserved an equally powerful music video, and Billie did just that when she was completely wrapped by a python.

  • 3. bury a friend

    When Billie emerged on the scene, she came out with really dark ideas that few pop stars have done. Billie plays on our fears, as she lays under a bed with blackened eyes, to being injected with multiple syringes in her back. Perhaps the most disturbing images of the video is when we see Billie’s feet being dragged down a flickering hallway, only to reveal later that she’s full-blown Exorcist levitating.

  • 2. Happier Than Ever

    If we’ve learned anything from Billie Eilish’s music videos, is that she like to incorporate visual storytelling with her music. In “Happier Than Ever,” the warm house Billie starts in becomes a dark, flooded mess.

  • 1. all the good girls go to hell

    In continuation from her “bury a friend” music video, the syringes that were injected into Billie’s back gave her wings. But what’s a fallen angel to do once she’s landed?
