Billie Eilish Explains Why She Relates to Britney Spears

Billie Eilish has an understanding of what led Britney Spears to her breaking point back in 2007.

The 18-year-old superstar opened up about adjusting to life in the spotlight and how that can be hard on a person’s mental health.

“As a fan growing up, I was always like, What the f**k is wrong with them? All the scandals. The Britney moment. You grow up thinking they’re pretty and they’re skinny; why would they fuck it up?” Billie told Vogue.

She continued, “But the bigger I get, the more I’m like, Oh, my God, of course they had to do that. In my dark places I’ve worried that I was going to become the stereotype that everybody thinks every young artist becomes, because how can they not? Last year, when I was at my lowest point during the tour in Europe, I was worried I was going to have a breakdown and shave my head.”

Thankfully, Billie says she’s in a much better place now.

“When people ask me what I’d say to somebody looking for advice on mental health, the only thing I can say is patience. I had patience with myself. I didn’t take that last step. I waited. Things fade,” Billie explained.
