Billie Eilish, the 21-year-old global superstar, recently opened up about her experiences with adulthood and fame during an interview on the “Needs A Friend” podcast. Eilish, who has achieved massive success in her short career, including a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award, recently moved into a $2.3 million home in Los Angeles previously owned by Leona Lewis.
The young artist spoke candidly about her transition into adulthood and her need for independence while still maintaining a close relationship with her parents. “There was a moment over the summer where I was having an I-need-to-be-an-adult moment,” she shared. Eilish went on to explain that while she moved away from her parents, she still values their presence in her life, saying, “Now when I have a free night I go and hang out with my parents. That’s the first thing I think of doing.”
Despite her meteoric rise to fame and numerous accomplishments, Eilish admitted that she is not immune to self-doubt. The singer, whose debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ was released in 2019, expressed her struggle with feeling overwhelmed and figuring out how to evolve as an artist. “I feel like for the last month I’ve been completely drowning,” she confessed.
Eilish reflected on her early success and the daunting prospect of maintaining her momentum, questioning where she can go from here. “I achieved the kind of things before I even was 18 – things that people work their entire lives for and maybe never even get. And one of the things that I achieved is one thing someone gets at the end of their life. And I got all of them,” she said.
As she navigates the challenges of growing up in the public eye, Billie Eilish’s openness about her struggles and successes is a testament to her authenticity and a reminder that even the world’s best-selling artists are still figuring out life as they go.
