Billie Eilish is undoubtedly one of the best singers in the world. Her social media accounts allow fans to keep a closer eye on her, but it appears that this will not be the case moving forward. Billie Eilish recently deleted all social media applications from her phone, which was a “huge deal” for her.

Billish Eilish seems to be “Happier Than Ever.” With 110 million Instagram followers, Billie Eilish announced she has decided to deactivate all social media apps from her phone. “I don’t look at it anymore,” the 21-year-old singer said on an upcoming episode of the “Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend” podcast.

“I deleted it all off my phone, which is such a huge deal for me. Cause dude, you didn’t have the internet to grow up with.”

“For me, it was such a big part of – not my childhood, I wasn’t an iPad baby, thank god – but honestly, I feel like I grew up in the perfect time of the internet that it wasn’t so internet-y, I had such a childhood, and I was doing stuff all the time.”


“And then when I became a pre-teen, there were iPhones, and as I got a little older, there was all of what has become, but being a pre-teen and a teenager on the internet, those were my people, I was one of them.”

The “No Time To Die” singer revealed another reason for deleting her social media applications. Eilish said that she doesn’t like looking at images of herself, so she took this step. She previously blocked online comments about her figure.

“I’m a person who goes on the internet… And to change nothing about the person I am or the life that I live, and to just keep doing what I do over the years, and slowly the videos that I’m watching and the things that I see on the internet are about me. ‘Eww, stinky.’ I don’t like that.”

“That’s the other thing that freaks me out about the internet is how gullible it makes you. Anything I read on the internet, I believe. Me. I know for a fact that’s stupid, and I shouldn’t do that because I have proof it’s not all true; almost none of it’s true.”

Eilish has expressed her anger with body shamers and online bullies in public. She responded to the criticism in 2020 by disrobing in the YouTube video “Not My Responsibility.”

“I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know?”

“Nobody can be like ‘oh she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she got a flat ass, she got a fat ass.’ Nobody can say any of that because they don’t know.”

The “Ocean Eyes” singer remarked in a 2019 Calvin Klein video that she never wants “the world to know everything about me.” However, Eilish has taken a huge step. Let’s see when she returns back to her social media applications. What’s your take on Billie? For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
