Billie Eilish opened up about her relationship with Jesse Rutherford in a new interview.
The musicians made their first red carpet debut as a couple at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles earlier this month.
The “Bad Guy” singer gushed about Rutherford during her sixth year vanity fair Video interview published Monday (November 28).
“I managed to push myself to a point in my life where I was not only known by a person who I thought was the hottest motherfucker alive, but pulled his ass,” Eilish said.
The singer continued, clapping, “Jesse Rutherford, everyone! I pulled his ass – all me! I did this. I locked up this motherf***ker.”
The 20-year-old added that she was “really excited and very happy” for her boyfriend, 31, mostly because his “love language” also includes physical touch.
“I just need to be touching skin all the time — touching and cuddling and hugging and anything skin-related is really a big deal to me,” she explained.
Eilish concluded by saying Rutherford struck the right balance of “space…love and attention and equal admiration.”
“I’m just really inspired by that person, and you know, he’s inspired by me, which is really cool.”
The pair made their relationship official on Instagram in early November, when Eilish shared a series of photos from Halloween.
Among the photos was one of the two in costume – with Eilish as a baby and Rutherford as an old man. The pair appeared to poke fun at the inevitable concerns about their age difference, but fans weren’t impressed.
