Billie Eilish Opens Up About Her Struggles With Body Image Extreme Dieting At Age 12

Billie Eilish, who is 19 years old, is a well-known musician. Eilish has had to deal with some individuals on social media judging her body, although her music is well-liked.

The five-time GRAMMY winner deviated from his customary baggy attire last year when he was caught wearing a tank top while heading to the beach. Eilish claimed in a Vanity Fair interview that the attention to her body in the photo and the article made her inner circle feel uneasy.

“I think that the people around me were more worried about it than I was because I used to cut myself because of my body,” she said. “To be quite honest with you, I only started wearing baggy clothes because of my body.”

Eilish claimed to be in a better place now, but she also discussed how growing up with a poor body image influenced her life.

“I was glad though, mainly, that I’m in this place in my life because if that had happened three years ago, when I was in the midst of my horrible body relationship — or dancing a ton, five years ago, I wasn’t eating. I was, like, starving myself,” she said. “I remember taking a pill that told me that it would make me lose weight, and it only made me pee the bed — when I was 12. It’s just crazy.”

Eilish claimed that she never anticipated that people would talk about her body on social media, whether by praising her as a proponent of body positivity or by criticizing her appearance and the clothes she wears.

“I thought I would be the only one dealing with my hatred for my body, but I guess the internet also hates my body,” she said. “So that’s great.”

The “Bad Guy” singer will likely soon be more open with his audience. On February 26, “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,” her documentary, will be available on Apple TV+. Fans can anticipate a lot of home movies that introduce Eilish’s family and highlight significant events during her journey to popularity, such as the purchase of her first car and turning 16, based on the movie’s trailer.
