Drake is getting some heat from the Cancel Culture for texting teenage singer Billie Eilish.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, the “Bury A Friend” singer revealed that the Canadian rapper is someone whom she counts as a friend and that the pair even text. Each year, the 17-year-old undertakes the same interview by the publication, with the same 50 questions. While Khalid was the most famous person in the teenager’s phone in 2017, Drake took the title this year.
“Drake is like the nicest dude I’ve ever spoken to,” she gushed before revealing that they’ve never actually met in person. “I mean I’ve only like texted him, but he’s so nice.”
Drake is undoubtedly at the height of his game, with the compilation album he released in August, Care Package, debuting at number one. But despite all the success he has achieved — including earning 4 Grammys and being declared by Billboard as the 16th most successful artist of all time — Eilish claims that he is the furthest thing from a “bad guy.”
“He does not to be nice, you know what I mean? He’s at a level in his life where he doesn’t need to be nice, but he is,” she said.
It seems, however, that no good deed goes unpunished, with people calling it “creepy” that Drake is texting with a girl who isn’t even 18 yet.
Billie Eilish just said in her vanity fair video that Drake is the nicest person ever and she has only talked to him through text. I am sorry but after news came out a while ago that 33 year old drake was texting 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown, this is creepy as hell.

Does anyone else think it’s strange that Drake just has Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown’s numbers? It’s definitely possible he’s just being a role model and it has to do with marketing but why’s a 32 year old man texting girls under the age of 17?

Many also referenced the fact that this is not the first minor he hits up. Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things revealed that after having met him in Australia two years ago, Drake often texts her.
“We just texted each other and he was like, ‘I miss you so much’ and I was like ‘I miss you too!'” the 15-year-old told Access Hollywood last year.
We can neither confirm nor deny whether Drake texts the Grammy nominee, “Billie, do you love me? Are you riding?”
can we talk about drake texting billie eilish and millie bobby brown… he’s a whole ass grown man and they’re two underage girls… that’s some creepy shit if you ask me..

Has Drake actually done something wronv by texting Billie Eilish and Millie Bobby Brown?
If he has anything close to romantic intentions, it's definitely creepy, but I haven't heard anything that suggests it's anything other than friendship.
