Billie Eilish first gained public attention in 2015, when she was only 14 years old, with her debut single “Ocean Eyes.” She is the youngest artist in Grammy history and only the second person to win all four general field categories. Billie recently revealed that she has no friends now that she is famous.
According to Paper, in a new interview with V, the Grammy winner revealed that while things with her family have remained the same, her newfound fame has been “a bit jarring for some people who grew up with me or haven’t seen me in a long time.”
“[They] come over to see us and see that it’s exactly the same,” she said of visitors to her childhood home in Los Angeles, given that they are likely expecting a mansion and instead find “it’s 2003.”
“It feels the same as it always did,” Eilish added. “There’s no sign that a famous person exists within 200 feet of this area.” And she finds the whole thing “really funny,” especially since she has to remind herself “what my life actually is to the outside world” on occasion. “I just forget sometimes,” she said. “My life really, honestly feels the same as it did when I was a child.”
However, one significant aspect of her life has changed, and that is her friendships. Despite having legions of fans, Eilish has stated that she “doesn’t have any friends” other than the people she works with, whom she now considers her “best friends.” But that’s not the only problem she’s had with fame; she recalls it being a “nightmare” when she first started getting noticed at 16, which “scared the living hell” out of her.
