Billie Eilish, 20, has expressed her wish to have kids in the future, claiming that she would “rather die” than not have any.
The singer of “Happier Than Ever” opened up to Sunday Times Magazine about her wish to have children.
In an interview with Sunday Times Magazine, she acknowledged that although she “dreads” the thought of having children, “[I] would sooner die [than not have kids] anyway… I need them.”
I keep thinking, “Ugh, what am I going to do when my kid thinks this is the proper thing to do and I’m like, “No, it’s not,” as I get older and experience more things.
They won’t pay attention to me, she continued.
Eilish attended home school as a kid together with her brother and frequent boyfriend Finneas, and “graduated” at the age of 15 after passing a high school equivalency exam.
But the Oscar winner acknowledged that she is reluctant to have children right now because of all the “scary” school shootings in America.
She referred to the recent massacre in Uvalde, Texas and questioned, “Why is it OK to be afraid to go to school?” “You attend school and are ready for a horrific event that will change your life or for death. What? Who? Where does the logic fit
Having experienced sleeping in her parents’ bed until she was 11 years old due to, among other things, a fear of the dark, Billie can relate to being a nervous child
The 20-year-old confessed, “I had debilitating, drastically altering separation anxiety, and I couldn’t be away from my parents.” She added, “I was afraid of what would happen to them, what would happen to me, and I was afraid of being forgotten.”
She added, “I couldn’t fall asleep by myself.” “I would scream until my parents arrived at the door if I woke up and they weren’t in the bed and the lights were off. The fact that I was certain there were scorpions crawling all over the floor prevented me from getting out of bed in the dark.
The Grammy-winning singer talked about working with her family during an interview.
Along with working alongside her brother Finneas, Eilish’s mother Maggie also controls the environmental aspect of her live performances.
My mom is obviously annoying, but she’s my mum, and everyone’s parent is annoying,” Eilish admitted. “But I love her, she is like a book, she knows everything, and I’m so grateful because I don’t know s—t about s—t,” the speaker continued.
“She’s a real genius when it comes to the environment. Although my mother is thinking about it, neither brands nor businesses are.
Eilish experienced great success with the release of her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, but she recently acknowledged that living in the spotlight caused her to experience despair.
In an episode of the Telekom Electronic Beat podcast, she admitted: “I really didn’t embrace [my popularity] for a few of years.”
The native of Los Angeles went on to claim that she took a while to warm up to her new position as a hitmaker.
The first few years of her career, she recounted, “I was extremely young and quite miserable and didn’t even know if I wanted anything that I had.”
Since then, Eilish has made a lot of behind-the-scenes changes that have completely altered her outlook on life.
“I was kind of in this zone of like, I don’t want to be here,” she added. Stupid youngster, and I’ve already changed.
She had become more relaxed in recent years, the performer said.
Then we had a more manageable touring schedule, more help, and no longer had to do everything ourselves. And it just started to feel very, really fun,” she said.
This week’s Glastonbury festival, which takes place at Worthy Farm for the first time since 2019, will feature the Grammy Award-winning singer as the festival’s youngest-ever solo headliner.
On June 24 at 10:15 p.m., Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar, and Eilish will play jointly on the Pyramid Stage for a 90-minute set.
