Billie Eilish has said she felt “f****** embarrassed” at this year’s Grammys because she didn’t think she deserved to win so many awards.

The US singer, 18, swept all four major categories at the ceremony in Los Angeles in January, taking home best album, song and record and the coveted new artist of the year prize.

But she told Dazed that she was not that comfortable with snapping up so many gongs when big name stars such as Beyonce were also among the nominees.
