BILLIE EILISH ON HER MENTAL HEALTH..
On having to give up dancing due to a hip injury and the subsequent effect on her mental health: “I think that’s when the depression started. It sent me down a hole. I went through a whole self-harming phase — we don’t have to go into it. But the gist of it was, I felt like I deserved to be in pain.”
On an early foray into acting: “I went on, like, two auditions. So lame. This creepy, cold room. All these kids that looked exactly the same. Most actor kids are psychopaths.”
On her first tour when it was just six people and a hotel budget of $100 per night: “It was miserable. Horrible Motel 6’s. Tiny little green rooms. We took it slow on purpose, so it would be more impactful when we got here — but we took it way slower than we needed to.”
The first start born in this century!
