Billie Eilish is unsurpisingly a household name due to her successful music career. The winner of five Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, three MTV Video Music Awards, and one Brit Award, fame came early to this 19-year old.
Eilish has openly struggled with her rise to fame but in an episode of SmartLess podcast, she spoke about adjusting to her famous status.
“The parts I hated three years ago, those are the parts that I’m digging now. Fame, in general, I used to just despise it, I hated everything about it,” she said. “I hated being recognized, I hated not being able to go out, I hated not being able to post a place because then people would show up at that place wherever it was because they’d figure out where it is.”
The singer also spoke about how her mental health issues came in the way of savoring the perks of her celebrity status.
“And I felt stupid because I had this thing that like, is really cool, people would kill for, and I didn’t like it at all,” Eilish continued. “And I was also forgetting that I was really, really depressed and that can make you hate almost anything. I don’t really know what changed, but I fucking love fame. I love it.”
With those years behind her now, Eilish is now all set to embrace fame and will be seen in The World’s a Little Blurry, an Apple documentary slated to release on Feb 26 on Apple+Tv.
