Katy Perry admitted that refusing to collaborate with Billie Eilish was a huge mistake
Billie Eilish reportedly requested Katy Perry to collaborate with her at one point, but it appears that it didn’t work out since the singer was hesitant to collaborate with a blonde pop star. According to the Roar singer, she turned down the Bad Guy hitmaker’s duet request on Ocean Eyes, something she now deeply regrets.
The American Idol judge appeared in a TikTok video shared by 102.7 KIIS FM on Friday. In a video clip, she can be seen telling the audience how she feels now after turning down a collaboration with Billie Eilish. She told her audience that she once asked to collaborate on Eilish’s debut single, Ocean Eyes, before the 21-year-old went on to win a Grammy.

Katy Perry shared that Billie Eilish once sent her a collaboration email for Ocean Eyes
Although it’s unclear to whom Katty Perry is referring, she said,
“Someone once sent me an email saying, Hey, check out this new musician. She and I were working together for Unsub [Records], so I’d really like for us to work with her.”
“It was a song called Ocean Eyes, and it was just a blonde girl,” Perry continued. “And I was like, Meh, boring.” Perry Further confessed with her eyes widening, “Big mistake. Huge mistake.” She then joked, “Don’t let this hit the Internet.”
The two famous musicians have since become friends, as evidenced in Eilish’s 2021 documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, where Perry introduced herself and her then-fiancé Orlando Bloom to the young musician, who didn’t recognize the Kingdom of Heaven actor at first.
