While most 17-year-olds are getting their license or applying for college, Billie Eilish is playing sold-out stadiums and booking late-night gigs.
After releasing a new single about fame, “everything I wanted,” Eilish is opening up more about how she struggles with her newfound celebrity status as a teenager.
“I like being famous, but I used to hate it,” Eilish confessed. “I hated doing press and I hated being recognized and I hated kind of everything that had to do with it.”
“There’s a lot in fame that’s f—ing gross and horrible and just miserable,” she continued. “But I’m very grateful for it, and it’s really rare and I’m very lucky, so I’m done with complaining about it.”
