Billie Eilish Reflects On Her Life In Same Interview For The Fifth Year In A Row

“Nothing will ever top that 2019 ego.”

Billie Eilish returned to Vanity Fair’s studios for her fifth year in a row to revisit the same series of questions that she has answered since 2017. However, this time around, the pop sensation’s answers show her growth over the last half-decade.

Billie Eilish touched upon many topics in the interview ranging from an identity crisis, how she navigates through massive fame, and more. Read on to find out how the singer is Happier Than Ever.

After watching a clip of her talk about being recognized in public in 2020, Eilish says she was going through a major identity crisis at the time. “Gosh, that girl was going through an identity crisis, oh my gosh. You can see it in my eyes, I mean really. The low bun!? Please.”

Moving on, she opened up about how she navigates her fame while going out in public.

“My attitude used to be, ‘Well I can’t go out. I can’t go here, I can’t go there.’ I used to just not even be able to go to a park or get food or get coffee. It freaked me out. In the last year, I have been opened up to it. I really feel grateful for that because being able to feel confident in stepping outside without a hat and a good and glasses and a mask and a jacket, it’s so much better. And you don’t have to live like that. […] If I’m being cautious and not trying to be in everybody’s faces, I can manage my way around people without them noticing. I didn’t used to be able to do that because my pride was too huge. I was like, I only want to be seen if I look like myself so I would never wear anything normal.”

Looking back at how her confidence had grown from 2017 to 2019, Eilish claimed that “nothing will ever top that 2019 ego.” But, she was quick to explain, there’s a reason. “I was feelin’ myself, that is for sure,” she said. “It’s because I had been so miserable for so long, that I finally wasn’t and I just never shut up about it. But I’ve been…I’ve been good. I mean, I’m starting to have, like, an adulthood. Which is new for me and very exciting, and I have had new experiences and new people and lots of love.”

Billie Eilish also said this year that her perspective on meeting the world’s expectations have changed as she’s entered into adulthood.

“I feel a lot of pressure, but I would also say, like, back then…I was pretty overall loved, I would say. To be honest. So I was, like, scared ’cause I really wanted to keep that love. And now, like, tons of people hate me,” she said with a laugh. “So I’m not worried anymore. I’m like, ‘Oh, OK well, if you like me, you like me; if you don’t, you don’t. So…”
