“I deleted everything from my phone which is a huge thing for me,” said the young artist who is a digital native. “For me it was a big part – not of my childhood, I was not a child with theiPads, thank god – but honestly I feel like I grew up in the perfect time of the internet, which wasn’t so internet that you couldn’t have a childhood. I really had a childhood, and I was doing stuff all the time.”
But the singer of Happier than ever she said that her relationship with the web started to change as she got older: “I became a pre-teen, and there were iPhones. And when I got a little older there was everything we have today.”
The relationship with social media
As her fame grew, her relationship with social media changed, finding herself turned off whenever she was online: “When everyone started talking about me, I started to dislike it. I don’t like it, I told myself.” . He later explained that he saw a “serious video” of her describing her as a “horrible person” and that didn’t go down well.
Billie Eilish also opened up about her online media presence and the body positivity and unrealistic expectations of young women: “If I wear what’s comfortable, I’m not a woman,” she said, “if I undress, I’m a whore.”
The previous one in 2021
It’s not the first time the musician has admitted that her fame has done her seriously reconsider your online activities. In June 2021 he admitted to the LA Times that he had completely stopped reading comments on Instagram. When asked why, she explained: ‘Because otherwise I’d freak out, and that crap is as bad as death. There are people, like my brother Finneas, who as soon as he gets a bad message he can delete it immediately. he doesn’t even read. I’m not capable. If Satan himself sent me a message, I would ask myself, “What did he say?”
The singer continued, “I want to hear what people have to say, and also because I grew up on the internet, I mostly agree with a lot of what the internet says. Some of the things they tease about are funny because they’re somehow true, right? Which worries me because I’m like, “Oh, God, are the bad things about me really true? And what are they?” I want to know! But I don’t want to know, because what would it do me? Nothing”.
