The singer, 19, was one of this year’s co-chairs for the annual fundraising gala, which is considered to be the most prestigious fashion event of the year, with invite only tickets $35,000 apiece.
Yet speaking out about her time at the event, Billie compared the gala to high school and said being surrounded by A-list stars only made her realise how normal everyone is.
‘Famous people are nobodies!’ Billie Eilish recalled her ‘nuts’ experience at the Met Gala in September as she compared the prestigious fashion event to high school
Speaking on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Billie explained: ‘It’s famous people famous people-ing. That’s what it is.
‘You know what, the main thing that night made me think or feel was how famous people are just literally nobodies. Just randos, and it’s so weird.
‘I was like, “Wow, all these people are just somebody that’s in class with you,” and you think this person’s kinda annoying, you really like this person, you get along with this person, and everybody’s just, like, embarrassed and insecure about what they’re doing and saying.’

Despite her underwhelming views on the guests, Billie insisted that she enjoyed her time at the event, calling it ‘amazing’, while noting, ‘It was just beautiful in there’.
This year’s event, themed America: A Lexicon of Fashion, saw Billie become the youngest ever co-chair as she joined fellow trendsetters Timothée Chalamet, Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman.
After being pushed back from its typical May spot to September owing to the pandemic, the gala was a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022.
After Billie attended her first Met Gala she made another first, debuting as host of Saturday Night Live over the weekend.
Elsewhere in her chat with Stern she confessed: ‘Preparing for SNL was f**king nuts, dude. It was literally alien. I cried every single day of the week. No joke at all,’ she said as she explained how she loves acting but ‘that’s not my world.’
Recalling going through a table read beforehand, she added: ‘I went to the Green Room, cried, and came back.
‘I was just scared. It’s like, it’s SNL… These amazingly talented actors are surrounding a table where, somehow, I’m the main course.’
