Does Billie Eilish Like Spiders? Meet the ‘Bad Guy’ Singer’s Unusual Pet

Sure, there were plenty of spiders in the “You Should See Me In the Crown” music video. However, Billie Eilish, reportedly, had one tarantula of her own as a pet. Yes, this was the same tarantula that James Corden ran from during The Late Night Starring James Corden. Here’s what we know about this beloved arachnid.

Billie Eilish has spiders in a number of her projects

Whether it be a post on Instagram or her “You Should See Me In the Crown” music video, Billie Eilish isn’t afraid to share her love of spiders with the world. In fact, the spiders in the vertical video were real. Billie Eilish does a number of her own stunts and that includes having these arachnids crawl on her face.

“The first day we did six takes maybe and then the second day we did three, I think,” the artist said during a video with Apple’s Beats 1 radio, according to Buzzfeed. “We did all those scenes with the spiders all over my face, crawling up my neck, and at one point they went in my ear.”

“I sort of love making stuff that people get freaked out by,” she continued. “I put a spider in my mouth. It had a name. Its name was like, Tom or Brad or something.”

Billie Eilish actually had a pet spider

Outside of her music videos, Billie Eilish has a “spider” of her own. It’s actually a tarantula that oftentimes made appearances on her social media platforms.

The Billie Eilish Fandom has since identified the pet as a Green Bottle Blue (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens) tarantula. Not much else is known about her little friend, including its name.

However, the same website reports that this tarantula died during November 2019. She posted an Instagram story with a picture of it, saying she’ll miss the animal.
