The 19-year-old declared that she would quiz the 53-year-old on popular Gen-Z references as an attempt to stump the talk show host. Although Kimmel was enthusiastic about the challenge, Eilish couldn't think of any references on the top of her head and the pair moved on.
The Grammy Award winning singer previously referenced the 2019 interview during her acceptance speech at Variety’s Hitmakers event. While she didn't mention Kimmel by name she said, "Thank you for not making me look stupid, like everybody else wants to do on TV."
Even Wolfgang Van Halen -- son of Eddie Van Halen and bassist for the band -- stood up for Eilish at the time of the initial interview, tweeting out: "If you haven’t heard of @billieeilish, go check her out. She's cool. If you haven't heard of @VanHalen, go check them out. They're cool too. Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us. Listen to what you want and don't shame others for not knowing what you like."
