Billie Eilish shares how she tackles online hate 

Billie Eilish shared how she felt "hated" after watching a TikTok video that dubbed her a "horrible person".

The Ocean Eyes coroner spoke about her experience with Lana Del Ray for Interview Magazine when they both shared how they navigated their successful careers with online trolls and hate.

"I have this inevitable feeling of, 'Oh, everyone hates me,'" Eilish said. 

"With the world of TikTok and social media, there is a level where it’s kind of true, because there are these videos. 

"I’m lying in bed last night, and I go on TikTok because I’m falling asleep, and I just want to be mindless for a second, watch some funny videos, 

"I keep scrolling and I’m thinking, 'Billie, put your phone away. You’re getting tired.' Then I swipe to the next one and it’s a video with millions of likes and it’s something about how I’m a horrible person.

"And all these comments are like, 'I’m so glad that you guys are seeing through her.' And I’m like, 'Damn', 

Del Ray responded, "That is so hard for me to fathom. You know what I think? It’s always the nice ones. I always felt like there's just such a warmth there between you and your family."

"It just made me feel like you've got that shield," she went on to say. 

"Also, you should know that any time you ever felt like any part of the world was against you, nobody else thought that.

"Because I find myself thinking everybody hates me when really, that’s such a tiny sliver of reality."
