The reason Why Mostly Billie Eilish Songs Are Depressing?
The reason Billie Eilish stated herself on the Smartless podcast hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.
“I was 14, 15 and then 16 touring for the first time and I was also very depressed because I was 14, 15, 16 as you are,”
“You’re just doing so much and I also was new to fame and suddenly I didn’t have any friends because I was famous and I was leaving all the time and it was weird. It was really weird.”
Billie Eilish shared about her earlier days that my age made the experience more difficult as she was spending most of her time with older age people than she was. Also shared how she lost touch with her friends.
“When you’re that age, you don’t really know how to talk to grown ups and they don’t really know how to talk to you. And other kids my age that I was friends with back home, like they’re not gonna pause their life and wait for me to get back and do things with me again,”
“I just talked s*** about it. All I could do was be like, ‘F*** fame. I hate being famous. I hate all of this.’ And I couldn’t go anywhere. And I was 14 not being able to go out in the world and that was super weird because I wasn’t used to it because I was a little kid,” she said.
“Fame in general. I used to just despise it, I hated everything about it. I hated being recognized, I hated not being able to go out, I hated not being able to post a place because then people would show up at that place wherever it was because they’d just figure out where it was. I really hated everything about it and I felt stupid because I was like, wow I have this thing that is really cool and people would kill for this and I don’t like it at all. I was also forgetting that I was really, really depressed and that could make you hate almost anything.”

Billie Eilish has mentioned it many times in her interviews. We hear Billie Eilish’s songs but We don’t know what she’s constantly thinking about or feeling, but We can know one thing she is Depressed. She might still be in that state where she doesn’t know what to do, but still doing things that she does. I do hope that she gets back up, mentally stronger, as she is doing extremely well musically or as a human being. She is a good artist and has a great personality, only thing is whatever she is doing ultimately can lift herself and feel good again.
Like millions of people around us, that are depressed. Some of them even don’t know they are facing this. Sometimes we judge them or sometimes we run away from them. But, We can’t judge anyone, We have no right. We should at least not judge anyone but rather accept and understand them. We might not know what they are feeling from the inside. Age never defines how a person should be allowed to feel. Anyone, whether they are young or old can feel depression, so saying that someone isn’t depressed because of their age is just not right.

Depression doesn’t have a time limit, so you can’t expect someone to have it for this much time and that much time to get over it. Even many famous examples faced this. Depression can either break you or make you stronger. Most people seem to confuse sadness with depression. They are two different emotions and that is where the problem is.
