Many of Billie Eilish’s celebrity friends and colleagues are expressing their admiration for the singer ahead of the release of her upcoming album, “Hit Me Hard and Soft.” 

“I wouldn’t be surprised if Billie’s soul has been here a lot of times,” Hailey Bieber told Rolling Stone. “That’s really how I feel about her. She has established herself as a once-in-a-generation artist, and that is something that’s so special and so rare.

“I can’t imagine that I’m not going to be rocking out to Billie still when I’m in my fifties and sixties. That’s my girl.”

Eilish and Bieber have remained friends for some time, with Bieber notably gifting Eilish a mug.

Bieber, talking to Rolling Stone recently, also admired the singer for her efforts to live life as a normal person, despite her immense fame since childhood, “I give her a lot of credit for putting herself out there and for wanting to experience everything the way that she’s meant to as a 22-year-old woman.”

Eilish’s friend, Kravitz also opened up about their longtime friendship, which began with Eilish believing the “Big Little Lies” actor potentially wouldn’t like her, “It’s actually the opposite of what she said: The more I get to know her, she gets better and better.”

Actor and rapper Donald Glover – also known as “Childish Gambino” – spoke to Rolling Stone about Eilish’s penchant for art forms beyond singing, “She understands storytelling at such a young age. And she’s authentic to her experience. I feel she’s living her life for herself.”

Glover cast Eilish in his 2023 horror miniseries, “Swarm,” marking her acting debut.

The “What Was I Made For” singer has received critical acclaim and appreciation from various artists throughout her career. 

Most recently, she was invited to sing alongside Coachella headliner Lana Del Rey, who said about Eilish during the show, “That’s the voice of our generation, the voice of your generation, and i’m so f---ing grateful she’s standing next to me right now singing my favorite song.”

Eilish’s album, “Hit Me Hard and Soft,” releases on May 17.
