Billie Eilish has been making music since she was a preteen teenager. But in recent years, the singer has grown from an underground alt-pop favorite to one of the most popular musicians in the world. His transition to a true pop star has been documented in his music and documentaries. But nothing shows its growth more than its annual interview with Vanity Show, where the singer answers exactly the same questions. This year marks her fifth year doing the same annual interview, where she discusses a previous identity crisis and reflects on her professional successes.
Now with platinum blonde hair, Eilish has sat down to answer questions about her social media audience (she now has over 94 million Instagram followers) and the things that are most important to her. After watching a clip of her speech about her recognition in public in 2020, Eilish says she was going through a major identity crisis at the time. “My God, this girl was going through an identity crisis, oh my God. You can see it in my eyes, I mean really. The low bun !? Please.”
Eilish then explained how she was navigating her massive fame while stepping out in public:
“My attitude was, ‘Well, I can’t go out. I can’t go here, I can’t go. Before, I couldn’t even go to a park, buy food or coffee. It scared me. Over the past year I have opened up to this. I’m really grateful for this because being able to go out with confidence without a hat and beanie, goggles, mask and jacket is so much better. And you don’t have to live like this. […] If I’m careful and don’t try to be in front of everyone, I can get along with people without them realizing it. I didn’t used to do this because my pride was too great. I was like, I only want to be seen if I look like myself, so I would never wear anything normal.
