 Billie Eilish opens up about her complicated relationship with her body

In a recent interview with The Times, the Ocean Eyes singer talked about her struggles with body image.

She was asked about where she was in her body-image journey, and the 20-year-old replied, "Nowhere good."

"My relationship with my body has been a truly horrible, terrible thing since I was 11," she said.

"I love that my body is mine and that it's with me everywhere I go," she continued. "I kind of think of my body as my friend. My ugly friend! It's complicated."

The Grammy winner started her career when she was only 15 years old, and gained recognition for wearing oversized clothes.

She revealed that she opted for the look because she "hated" her body and never felt "physically desired."

"Being known for the whole start of your career for one thing — she wears baggy clothes and she sings like this — it was driving me mad," she told The Times
