During the interview it was revealed that she also hadn't seen the classic 80's Ghostbusters movie, didn't know who the rap group Run DMC were, but she thankfully did know who Madonna was!

Thankfully, a number of her fans came out to support Billie, with comments like "Van Halen has 74 thousand followers, Billie Eilish has 43 million"

 

Wolf Van Halen definitely shut the argument down with his tweet:
