Doing double duty! Billie Eilish returned to Live Saturday night soundstage both as a guest and as a musical guest, sharing his love for the holiday season.

SNL monologue during the episode on Saturday 11 December. “That’s why I decided to dress like Mrs. Claus who goes to the club, but actually no, I only wear this because, after the show, I have to get married in an anime.”

After explaining her red and white dress, the teenage musician marveled at her debut as a guest on the variety series.

“It’s so special to host in December, not only do I love Christmas – and oh my God, it’s so beautiful here at Christmas – but my birthday is a week from now,” she added. “I’m turning 20, or whatever the Internet likes to call it: middle-aged. I’m actually really excited about getting old because, right now, I’m starting to understand who I really am as a person. The scary thing about growing up in the public eye is that people decide that everything you say, do and look like is who you are forever. It’s not right. Would you like to be judged by the way you presented yourself at 16? “

The “Ocean Eyes” performer told the outlet that he wanted a strong, easy-to-pronounce title for his second record before choosing “Happier Than Ever” after one of the “most important songs” he has ever written.

You don’t really know what you mean or how to say it – and then, maybe you have a conversation with someone else, or think about it for a while, and understand what you’ve been trying to say all this time? That’s how I felt, “Eilish recalled.” That was the whole writing process, that was the recording process. Everything involved in this song felt like it feels when you finally find the words for something. ” .
