Following the release of the nominees for this year’s MTV EMA on Wednesday, October 20th (Wednesday, October 20th), fans appear to be split over who should take home the top alternative title. While fans argue about the options, we investigate Billie Eilish and Yungblud‘s relationship.
Yungblud nominated for best alternative
The MTV Europe Music Awards, which will be held on November 24 in London, has announced the category nominations for next month. The list of nominees was presented yesterday (Wednesday, 20 October).
Parents’ singer Yungblud was nominated for best alternative, along with Halsey, Lorde, Machine Gun Kelly, Twenty One Pilots, and Willow.Fans, on the other hand, appear to be split over category nominations, with some calling for Bad Guy singer Billie Eilish to be included:
Yungblud and Billie Eilish’s friendship explored
Yungblud and Billie Eilish appear to have known each other for a long time, but how they met isn’t clear.
A fan posted a sweet Instagram photo of the pair as Yungblud came in to see Eilish before she performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2018:
In 2019, while appearing on a popular YouTube program called Hot Ones, Billie Eilish recounted how she sprained her ankle and said, “I can’t remember if it was Yungblud or not.” The pair have spoken of their friendship in the past, with Yungblud revealing that it might get “chaotic” when they are together.
Have they ever collaborated?
Yungblud and Billie Eilish have yet to collaborate, although the music stars have previously collaborated with some well-known contributors.
Billie Eilish sang on Khalid’s Lovely, and she featured Justin Bieber on a remix of her song Bad Guy. Yungblud has worked with several well-known artists, including Machine Gun Kelly and Halsey. It’s possible that they’ll collaborate in the future, as Yungblud previously stated to Kerrang! Radio. He’d be open to working with the singer in the future.
On Instagram, Yungblud also appeared to allude to Eilish in a recent post. The snap features him in a bathroom with the words “Billie don’t be so furious!” written on the wall. The words appear to have been penned by the singer, as one of the other photographs shows him holding a pen. The message’s meaning is unknown, but it may be a coincidence.
