Billie Eilish became candid about the relationship she has with her body.
The 19-year-old musician told the guard that when she performs on stage, she “must distance herself from the ideas I have about my body”, otherwise her performance will be affected by her mental state.

“I wear clothes that are bigger and easier to move around in without showing everything — they really can’t be flattering,” she explained. “In pictures they look like I don’t even know what. I just completely separate the two. Because I have such a terrible relationship with my body, like you wouldn’t believe, so I just have to distance myself.”
Eilish said she can’t really understand why society is so obsessed with bodies.

“I mean, we just need bodies to eat and walk around and poop,” the Grammy winner mused. “We just need them to survive. It’s ridiculous that anyone even cares about bodies. Like, why? Why do we care? You know, if you really think about it?”
But the teen admitted that even she sometimes gets into a social media spiral by comparing herself to other people.
“I see people online who look like I’ve never looked. And right away I’m like, oh my god how do they look like this? I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake,” Eilish confessed. “Yet I still see it and go, oh god that makes me feel really bad. And I mean, I’m very confident in who I am, and I’m very happy with my life… Obviously I’m not happy with my body, but who is?”

Eilish happily said she grew up in a very supportive and honest family where they talked about double standards and common stereotypes.
“Ever since I was a kid,” the California resident recalled, “my dad and I have always talked about a certain type of person who is so insecure, or hyper-conscious and self-conscious, that they never move in a weird way, or a weird face, because they always want to look good. I’ve noticed that, and it makes me so sad. When you always stand a certain way, walk a certain way, and your hair always like this… It’s such a loss of always trying to look good all the time. It’s such a loss of joy and freedom in your body.”
