Billie Eilish’s brother Finneas O’Connell reveals why he thinks his pop star sister’s fame is ‘dangerous’


Finnea’s O’Connell is a musician in himself whose collaboration with his sister, Billie Eilish, has put him in the spotlight.

But the 24-year-old artist insists he would never have the same level of fame as his teenage siblings — in fact, he calls her celebrity ‘dangerous’.

‘People who do not listen to her music at all or like her music at all still want a picture with her to prove that they have seen her as seeing Bigfoot in the woods,’ he told Adelaide Now on Friday.

‘And it’s dangerous because that’s where you’re not being treated like a person, you’re being treated like an animal in a zoo or something,’ he added.

The artist went on to say that he is happy with his own success and no longer laughs.

‘I’m not as famous as the most famous people, I’m not as famous as my sister or some of our friends, and I think there’s a level of fame that I really would never dip my toes in,’ Finneas added.
