Singer Billie Eilish opened up about how life had been a constant trauma for her in terms of facing body shaming and immense social media toxicity.
Eilish is very open to discussing sensitive topics and offering solutions which could be a source of help for others.
In an interview with Elle, the Happier Than Ever Singer said, “My sexuality! Like, oh yeah, that’s everyone else’s business, right? No. Where’s that energy with men? I just wanted to make a song once, and then I kept making songs. I never said, ‘Hey, pay attention to my life.’ All my friends know I don’t wanna see any of [the negative chatter]. When people send me something mean, it hurts my soul.”
Regarding her new hair colour Eilish said, “I couldn’t go anywhere with that hair because it was so obviously me. I wanted anonymity…the other day, I posted a video from when I had green hair, and I saw people go, ‘I miss this Billie, the green-haired Billie. I’m still the same person. I’m not just different Barbies with different heads.”
About social media, Billie said, “I really wish that there was a way to avoid it. Literally, delete my account but still have contact with the fans. I want to be able to have both, but you can’t.”
