When they say it is not your struggle and the process but only success and the result that attracts the masses, they are not wrong. And right now, the pop culture sensation Billie Eilish would perhaps be a perfect example. Although Eilish is now an accomplished artist, she was once a random singer trying to get her songs published. And do you know who the one that got away was? None other than the ‘Queen of Camp,’ Katy Perry.
The 38-year-old American singer and songwriter is currently making it to the headlines after sharing how she declined to work with the Bury a Friend singer when Perry was enjoying the peak time, and Eilish was struggling to kick-start her career. Apparently, a new viral TikTok by 102.7 KIIS FM saw the Never Really Over singer confessing that she made a “huge mistake” declining to work with the then-new blonde artist. And ever since, fans are calling her out.
Katy Perry calls declining the offer to work with Billie Eilish a ‘huge mistake’
“It was a song called ‘ocean eyes’…” the only female to win Billboard Music Award recently shared (per the TikTok video)how she declined the offer to work with Billie Eilish on her debutant song, in what appeared to be a concert. Furthermore, she called it a “huge mistake.” Seemingly, the American Idol judge regrets bespeaking it as “meh, boring.” Now, the internet is weighing in on it all.
Katy Perry says she made a “huge” mistake declining to work with Billie Eilish:

While some call her ‘desperate,’ others come to rescue her by asserting that she was just making a joke. Or perhaps sharing an experience. You can have a look at a few of the fans’ comments below:

she basically just admitted she regrets not working w billie because billie is now a HUGE star and katy has been long forgotten and working with billie would have maybe helped revive her dead career

Another user explains the two are good friends (pretty much evident from Eilsh’s documentary), and Perry was just making a joke about how things could have turned out if she had the foresight to foresee the future of the now 7 time Grammy Award winner.
Ntm on katy that was clearly when billie's sound wasn't that popular and just didn't match katy's pop sound and aesthetics .. they've met afterwards and are good friends pic.twitter.com/z8IZcwK4uj

Another one points out how Perry was also “just a blonde girl” once
