“I received an email from someone who said, ‘ Hey check out this new artist. I’d really like us to work with her because she was working with me for Unsub [Records].”

Likewise, Perry continued the statement by saying,

“It was a song called ‘Ocean Eyes,’ and it was just a blonde girl”

From that time, Katy and Billie became good friends and Perry also introduced her then-fiancee to Billie. When Eilish and Orlando Bloom first met each other via Katy, Billie had no clue about that. She also didn’t know Orlando was the actor in the movie, “Pirated of the Caribbean”. Katy introduced Orlando Bloom by saying,

“My fiancé doesn’t listen to modern music, he’ll only play you in the car all the time.”

Moreover, Bloom also hugged Billie and said, “I’m so proud of you.” Continuing the conversation, Perry added,

“Congrats, I’m so proud of you. I wanted to say, this is going to be wild for 10 years. If you ever wanna talk… ’cause it’s a weird ride.”

But the funniest part is, Billie didn’t know who Orlando was except Katy’s boyfriend. When her brother, Finneas told her he was the actor in the “Pirates of the Caribbean”, she became a fangirl. In addition to that, she said,

“That guy?! That was him?! No way! Bring him back. I want to meet him again. He kissed me on the cheek. I did not know that was him. I thought that was just some dude Katy Perry met.”

Apart from this, we are hoping Katy and Billie in the same song once. Despite the regret, Katy Perry and Billie Eilish are going well together.
