Billie Eilish admits she was ‘very depressed’ as a teenager | Entertainment

Billie Eilish felt “very depressed” in her early years.

The 20-year-old star struggled to enjoy her early success in the music business, but Billy is in a much better mood now.

The singer, who was only 17 years old when she released her debut album, shared, “I really, really like it and it feels great to say it now because I really didn’t love it for a couple of years.

“For the first few years of my career, I was very young and very depressed and didn’t even know if I wanted something from what I have.”

Billie has made a number of behind-the-scenes changes over the years, and her whole outlook has changed.

The ‘Bad Boy’ hitmaker told the Telekom Electronic Beats podcast, “I’ve been kind of in that zone, I don’t want to be here. Stupid little kid and I made a change.

“Then we had a less demanding touring schedule and we got more people and we didn’t have to do it all ourselves anymore. And it became really, really enjoyable.”

Billie, meanwhile, recently revealed that she “befriended” Tourette’s.

The award-winning star was diagnosed with a neurological condition that causes involuntary movements, twitches and sounds when she was just 11 years old, and while she “didn’t like it,” she grew up to view her condition as “part of” her.

Billie said, “Not that I like it, but I feel like it’s a part of me. I made friends with it. So now I’m quite sure of it.

“When I move, I don’t twitch at all. When I ride a horse, I don’t twitch. When I move, think and focus, when I sing [I’m not ticcing].”
