Billie Eilish opens up about her body dysmorphia


TextDominic Cadogan

The musician addressed her mental health issues – including depression and anxiety – in her cover interview for Rolling Stone

Billie Eilish is known for addressing her demons in her music – her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? addresses her struggles with sleep paralysis and night terrors. Now, the musician has opened up about her experiences with body dysmorphia in an interview for Rolling Stone

“I’ve never felt comfortable in really tiny clothes,” she says, recalling her time performing with a dance company. “I was always worried about my appearance. That was the peak of my body dysmorphia. I couldn’t look in the mirror at all.” The musician uses fashion as a way to protect herself from the world, never being seen in public not wearing oversized clothing. 

Elsewhere, Eilish speaks about her struggles with depression, self-harm, and anxiety. No longer self-harming, she sometimes spots girls with scars at her concerts and has advice for them. “I don’t have scars anymore because it was so long ago. But I’ve said to a couple of them, ‘Just be nice to yourself.’ Because I know. I was there.”
