She Struggled with Body Image Issues
Eilish recently confessed to Vogue UK that her body "was the initial reason for my depression when I was younger" – and the situation worsened when she quit dancing at 13 due to injury. She also started cutting. "I think that the people around me were more worried about it than I was, because the reason I used to cut myself was because of my body," she told Vanity Fair. "To be quite honest with you, I only started wearing baggy clothes because of my body."
She Lives in the Moment
Billie believes people should do whatever makes them feel good about themselves. "It's all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing," OK "if you feel like you look good, you look good," she told Vogue. "People always say, 'How would your younger self feel about you now?' And that's a good thing to think about in some cases, but I also think you shouldn't try to be a person that your old self would like, and you shouldn't try to be a person that your future self is going to be. You should be exactly who you feel like you are and want to be in that moment, otherwise you're going to go insane."
She Wakes Up Early
Eilish used to sleep late, but now wakes up early. "It makes the day so much longer," she told Vogue. If she can't sleep, she uses a meditation app.
She Keeps Her Private Life Private
When it comes to her private life, she sets boundaries. When asked if she has a horse by Vogue, she wouldn't respond. "Maybe, maybe not, who knows?" she said. "That's a whole part of my life that I'm not interested in anybody having any info on." The reason why she keeps her life on the DL is for her mental health. "It's too much for them and it's too much for me and it's not healthy," she said. "Everything comes in waves."
She Is Vegan
In a 2018 Tumblr post Eilish explains why she went vegan in 2014. There were a lot of reasons," she wrote. "I love animals and I just think there's no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave animals alone. Damn. Also, I'm lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin and my skin is VERY aware of that."
She Is Sober
Eilish has never struggled with drugs or alcohol, but maintains a sober lifestyle. "When I was growing up and I was around my group of friends back then," she said, "and they would all be drinking and smoking and doing drugs and whatever, I think because of the way that my personality is—I'm a very strong-willed person, and I think at the time I was very alpha—I'm coming to realize that I may have felt a feeling of superiority."
She Had Eating Issues at a Young Age
When she was just 12, Billie started taking weight loss pills and developed a pattern of disordered eating. "Five years ago, I wasn't really eating. I was, like, starving myself," she told Vanity Fair. "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 twelve."
