When you think of some common things a lot of folks are scared of, your mind will often turn to the likes of spiders, lions, or perhaps even bears.
Billie Eilish, on the other hand, well, she’s scared of the rapper Eminem.
Fans of the ‘Bad Guy’ singer will be well aware of how intense and even spine-tingling a lot of her music videos are.
For starters, black liquid is seeing oozing out of her eyes in ‘When The Party’s Over’, while a spider comes scuttling out of her mouth in ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’.
Nonetheless, the 22-year-old grew up having a fear of one of the most famous rappers of all time in Eminem.
I think a lot of us grew up having a slight fear of the rapper, particularly due to his music videos we probably shouldn’t have been watching at a young age.
However, the likes of spiders are certainly more frightening to a lot of us, but that is certainly not the case for Eilish.

She said: “I was scared of Eminem. My whole life. Always. I, dude, terrified. That dude freaked the f**k out of me. Oh my God.”
And of course, Eminem being Eminem came up with the best response – shouting out Eilish in a verse of one of his tunes.
In ‘Alfred’s Theme’, the lyrics read: “Homicidal visions when I’m spitting like this / But really I’m just fulfilling my wish of killing rhymes which is really childish / And silly, but I’m really like this, I’m giving nightmares to Billie Eilish.”
Whether his response has since helped Eilish stop being so scared of him or simply made matters worse, who knows.
Either way, fans of the musicians flocked to social media following the interview, with many finding it pretty hilarious.

One YouTube user said: “All her music videos are creepy as hell and Eminem’s the one giving her nightmares ??!!!”
“She’s scarier than he is – he’s just brutally honest.. there’s a difference,” another wrote.
Others joked how Eminem typically responds to anyone who mentions him in the form of a lyric.
“Man Eminem hears and knows everything anyone has ever said about him, them puts them in his songs,” a user wrote.
While a second commented: “And then Eminem proceeded to traumatise her further.”
