It isn’t easy being under public scrutiny, especially when it comes to your body, and that’s something Billie Eilish is still trying to come to terms with. In a new interview with Vogue, Billie admits it’s “tough” having to deal with all the negative comments she reads about her body.  

“Honestly, nobody can say anything about my body that I don’t have a stronger opinion about,” the 21-year-old tells the magazine. “I also think that if I was younger, like if the internet talked about me the way they do now when I was like 11, I don’t think I would be able to exist, to be honest.”

And no matter how much she works on liking herself, the comments are still biting.

“I like myself more than I used to, and I’m more interested in how I feel than how they feel. But then also that might be a load of bulls*** because it still hurts my feelings like a sonab****.”

Overall, Eilish says being in the public eye has been “really hard” on her, noting, “I’ve had a rough time, TBH, and I’m still figuring it out. But it’s definitely a weird life; I’ll say that.”
