The American superstar, 20, said “equal admiration” is really important and that she doesn’t “want to be controlled” in a relationship.
Her romantic relationship with the Neighborhood frontman, 31, has been met with criticism online, with some questioning the age difference between them.
But speaking to Vanity Fair in an annual interview, Eilish said their participation is “really amazing”.
When asked by the outlet if she has a boyfriend, she laughed and replied, “Yes, I do, and that’s really cool and I’m really excited and I’m really happy about it.
“I managed to get to a point in my life where I was not only known by someone who I thought was the hottest f ***** f ***** but also live, that I pulled his ass.
“Are we kidding me?… I did it. Jesse Rutherford, everyone.”
Talking about what she values in a relationship, she continued: “My love language is just physical touch.
“Also, like freedom…you know, I don’t want to be controlled.
“I want to be trusted and I want space and I want equal love and attention and admiration to be what really matters.
