There's a little bit of controversy over something Billie Eilish said in a recent "Vogue" interview.  Comments she made about rap lyrics are being taken as RACIST.  By some people, anyway.

She said, quote, "There's a difference between lying in a song and writing a story.  There are tons of songs where people are just lying.

"There's a lot of that in rap right now, from people that I know who rap.  It's like, 'I got my AK-47, and I'm [effin'> . . .'  and I'm like, what?  You don't have a gun.

"'And all my [B-words> . . . .' I'm like, which [B-words>?  That's posturing, and that's not what I'm doing."

I side with Billie on this one.  If you read the full article, she's not being racist and her comments are a lot less sh*tty than they seem.

Here's some of the backlash:
