Fame was once a complicated topic for pop star Billie Eilish, but things have changed a lot since then. Hot New Hip Hop picked up on comments from the singer-songwriter this week sharing her battle with notoriety in the early stages of her career.

Billie says the “parts” she hated a few years ago, “those are the parts (she) digs now.” Being famous for Eilish wasn’t that great when it started because she had no sense of privacy or anything that resembled a normal life.
Billie says that her least favorite aspect of fame was the inability to walk out of her house for a second without being recognized by people. She says that being unable to post about her location on social media was another issue, adding that it only brought unnecessary attention to her location.

It brought a lot of conflicting feelings with it because on the one hand a lot of people work hard to get fame, but she hated it. Billie went on to say that this made her feel really “depressed” and that she hated a lot of things.
Billie admitted that another part of it that she didn’t like was the feeling that she had to prove herself to her coworkers when she got back to her house. She explained that it seemed like everyone was considering her a “joke”.
Billie was very open about what it is like to be a young girl who shows up in the music industry. For example, the pop star has talked at length about things like body embarrassment, including how many people judge her for what she wears.
Billie says this is one of the reasons she wears baggy clothes; She doesn’t want people to judge her body.
