The only pandemic in 2009 was Bieber Fever. I caught it and Billie Eilish did, too.
The 18-year-old singer, who's a known Belieber, invited her mother, Maggie, on as a special guest on her "Me & Dad" podcast where they elaborated on Billie's obsession.
Maggie recalled how excited her daughter was for Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me" music video release:
"I remember this one really well and the video, and Billie talking about it, and being excited it was coming out, and just crying and crying," her mother said. "Everyone knows the whole Billie, Justin Bieber thing but this song was a big part of it."
Eilish confirmed she "would watch the music video for this song and just sob."
"I just want to say, we did consider taking you to therapy because you were in so much pain over Justin Bieber," her mother joked.
Eilish finally met Bieber at Coachella in 2019, which Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, caught on camera:
