Feel old yet?

Billie Eilish is one of pop music’s fastest rising artists. Her most-recent album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, topped the Billboard 200 chart, and one of the album tracks, “Bad Guy,” received critical acclaim for making dark pop go mainstream. She knows a thing or two about how to make good music, but is lost when it comes to paying respect to her elders.

A new clip of interviewer Nardwuar giving Billie a Lizzie McGuire sleeping bag is making the rounds right now because not only does the 17-year-old not know who Lizzie is, she doesn’t recognize Hilary Duff.

 “So, ‘Who is Hilary Duff? is the real question,” she said.

I’m feeling a certain type of way about this.

It makes sense though. Lizzie McGuire premiered on the Disney Channel in January of 2001, and Eilish wasn’t born until December of that year. Still, I’m having trouble wrapping my head around this. Imagine living in a world where you don’t know about Lizzie’s crush on Aaron Carter, Gordo’s crush on Lizzie or the age old question… why Miranda wasn’t in the movie. Because that still really bothers me.
