Any Billie Eilish fan knows she was a die-hard Belieber when she was younger, but less so that she also adored Taylor Swift. It must be said that the singer only became aware of it very recently! It was while going back in one of her oldest playlists that the star realized that one of her favorite songs of the time, Picture to Burn , was performed by Taylor Swift.

“I was listening to this song when I was maybe four years old, no, maybe when I was older. Probably around six, Billie Eilish recalled on her podcast me & dad radio . It's crazy. It's really very country. When I listen now, I think to myself, “Wow, I didn't realize how country this was at all”. But I liked this song because I thought it was heartbreaking. I thought it was so cool and really mean. I just adored him. "
Everything was already there
“I didn't know it was Taylor Swift until this year,” Billie Eilish then revealed. Indeed, this is a song that most Taylor Swift fans have probably forgotten or never listened to. And for good reason, Picture to Burn is present on the very first album of the singer released in 2006.
At the time, we were very far from the pop steamroller that the singer would become, but the writing was already there. As we can imagine, the song is about a breakup and an ex who takes it for his rank!
