Eilish is concerned about protecting her future children when they grow up as it’s a “scary” time to be young in America right now
Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish would “rather die” than not have a mother, but she also “fears” it. The 20-year-old ‘Lovely’ hitmaker is also concerned about protecting her future children when they grow up as it’s a “scary” time to be young in America right now.
“[I would] rather die [than not have kids], I need her. The older I get the more I experience things, I’m just like, uh, what should I do when my kid thinks this is the right thing and I’m like, no, it’s not! And they won’t listen to me,” the musician told The Times. Discussing the Texas shooting, Eilish asked, “Why is it okay to be scared of going to school? You go to school and are prepared for a life-changing traumatic experience or death. What? Who? Where’s the logic in that?”
When asked what got her excited, she said: “Uh, I’m looking forward to playing games. I love playing games. I will play with anyone anytime. Literally with everything.” The award-winning star spoke about the process of touring and what it feels like: “It’s kind of crazy what a person does, touring. It’s so unnatural for us humans to have such high highs and such low lows. It feels like a blur. It’s like living five different lives at once, crazy but amazing.
The ‘Bad Guy’ star’s music progresses as she grows and develops into a person. “Every album is always received so differently. Because it’s a different version of me and a different version of you [the fans] and I grow and they grow. We grow together,” she explains. But Eilish also feels very responsible as she wants to protect these young people. “I really have such a strong need to protect young people and young girls. It’s so hard,” she says.
“I remember when I was 15 and people said you’ll understand when you’re older and I would be what the heck. Of course I understand now. It’s kind of annoying when you get older and you’re like, ‘Oh damn, I didn’t have that,'” Eilish explains. Discussing her complicated relationship with her body, she said: “My relationship with my body has been a really horrible, horrible thing since I was 11. I love that my body is mine and that it goes with me everywhere. I kind of think of my body as my friend. My ugly friend! It’s complicated. But what are you going to do?”
Eilish spoke about the hypocrisy of the world and the double standards she holds, especially for women. “No matter what you do, it is wrong and right. When you wear baggy clothes nobody is attracted to me, I feel incredibly unlovable and unsexy and not beautiful, and people shame you for not being feminine enough. Then you wear something more revealing and she “You’re such a fat cow whore. I’m a slut and I’m sold out and I’m like every other celebrity who sells their body and woah! What the hell are you doing?” do you want? It’s a crazy world for women and women in public.”
