In an interview with Vanity Fair, Billie Eilish reflects on five years of interviews with the magazine, taking note of how far she’s come.
The 19-year-old singer has matured so much, compared to side-by-side clips of her in previous years. “I’m starting to have an adulthood, which is new for me and very exciting,” Eilish says in the below video. “I have had new experiences and new people and lots of love.”
When it comes to feeling pressure, Eilish said that when she first started out in the music scene, she felt more loved and she was afraid to lose that feeling of being loved by the public. Now, that’s all out the window — she says that she couldn’t care less. “Now, tons of people hate me, so I’m not worried anymore. I’m like ‘okay well, if you like me, you like me, if you don’t, you don’t.”
Eilish had some advice to give her future self: “I feel like everything is permanent all the time, and it’s not! Things go in waves and things happen and things stop and then they start. You have no idea what’s to come, ever, and I think just try to be aware of the amazing things you have going on right in the moment instead of later. We don’t realize what’s in front of us — at all, until it’s not. Very weird.”
