Billie Eilish is certainly one of the most attention-grabbing singers in the music industry right now. At only 20 years of age, she has dominated the competition and her songs have been chart-toppers for a long time now. Recently, the singer spoke out on her tough touring schedule, revealing she once didn’t go outside for three days.
The singer, who will become Glastonbury’s youngest ever headliner when she performs at the UK festival as part of her latest tour this week, admitted to The Sunday Times that her life “feels like a blur.” Billie said that while she loves performing live, the back to back dates mean she sleeps on her tour bus after shows on the way to the next city and spends her days in the arenas rehearsing.
While speaking to the outlet she said, “It’s kind of a crazy thing that a human does, touring.” She added, “It is so unnatural for us as people to have such high highs and such low lows. It feels like a blur. It’s like you’re living five different lives at once, bonkers but amazing.”
This year Billie will visit 47 cities over six months on her Happier Than Ever world tour, and she says her team came up with ways to help the star measure the passing of time. For instance her tour manager brings candles to burn in her dressing room, a different scent for each continent.
Meanwhile, for her latest tour Billie admitted that she’s trying harder to get natural light every day, sneaking a trip into a city for an hour or two, despite confessing she “hates the summertime.” This week will see Billie headline the world-renowned Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Friday before two nights at London’s O2.
