Billie Eilish Calls Growing Up In The Public Eye A ‘Bruising Experience’

Global alt-pop superstar Billie Eilish, the first person born in the 21st century to win an Oscar, claims that growing up in the public eye was a “bruising experience.”

The “Bad Guy” singer was honored as one of the BBC‘s 100 Women and did an interview with the outlet during which she reflected on her career thus far.

When asked how she would describe herself, Eilish said, “I have no idea. I don’t know. I feel like I might have known how to answer a couple of years ago. I don’t know anymore. Because I don’t look at myself in that way. I don’t look at myself like I’m something to explain. I just exist. I’m just a person. I’m just existing and doing my part in life.”

Eilish first gained public attention in 2015 with her debut single “Ocean Eyes,” written and produced by her brother Finneas O’Connell, with whom she collaborates on music and live shows.

Eilish’s first studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019), debuted atop the Billboard 200 and U.K. Albums Chart.

Eilish has received multiple accolades, including seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, three MTV Video Music Awards, three Brit Awards, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award.

Despite getting numerous awards, accolades and recognition, the singer said that it is a bruising experience to grow up in the public eye and hard to keep defending things you said as a teenager.
