Billie Eilish’s New Motto Explains Her Transition From ‘Identity Crisis’ To Adulthood

Every year for the past five years, award-winning singer and songwriter Billie Eilish has spoken to Vanity Fair to reflect on her music career and life. Every year the post asks her the same questions, so it’s easy to see how the 20-year-old has grown and changed.

For her fifth interview for the capsule series, Eilish looked back on her responses from the past four years. She reflected on how she had grown since then and even disclosed how she experienced an ‘identity crisis’ along the way.

The most striking difference from Eilish’s previous annual interviews is the singer’s new platinum blonde hair, according to Vanity Fair. No more wild color combinations that she favored. The new look first appeared on the cover of British Vogue as Eilish dressed like a classic Hollywood starlet.

Asked about the new look, however, Eilish explained that it was just something she wore that day. After fans and critics saw the UK Vogue photoshoot, they assumed she was completely changing her aesthetic for good. But she explained that she’s far from done taking risks and believes in wearing, playing, talking and being exactly the way she wants to be.

The difference between this year’s interview and the previous four is in the deeper changes Eilish has experienced over the past year. These developments are not just superficial. She enthusiastically explained that she is “now starting to come of age.” Eilish has expressed great enthusiasm for so many new people and experiences over the past year. She was grateful for all the love.

In 2021, Eilish got two more tattoos and learned to better deal with being spotted in public. She even convinced Oscar de la Renta, who dressed her for the Meta Gala, to stop using fur in any future designs.

The singer’s new motto is “Everything is allowed. Full stop. “And in 2021, she lived that motto well. Looking back on her 2020 interview, Eilish says she sees the struggle in her own eyes. She feels sympathy for herself a year ago. as the effects of the pandemic on the music industry scared her, and she even shared that she battled an identity crisis in 2020.

Now that Eilish is performing again, she has more insight into her feelings than she had back then. She says her inability to do shows has caused her to collapse because performing on stage is where she is happiest, where she is “completely rejuvenated.”

In 2021, Eilish hosted the Met Gala and launched her own fragrance. While she could have sold any product, the LA native chose to develop a perfume because she wanted to create a personal scent that she could wear.

Billie Eilish overcomes her fears

The singer’s latest album, Happier than ever, reflects what she thinks about life these days. Thinking back to her responses to Vanity Fair over the past four years, she realized that she was trying to convince herself that she didn’t care. In truth, beneath the surface, the singer felt overwhelmed. Everyone wanted something from her that she couldn’t give, which made her struggle with her self-esteem.

In 2021, Eilish is more confident that she realized that some people won’t like her, and she’s okay with that. She explains that at the beginning of her career, she was very much loved and that she was afraid of losing it. Now she feels tons of people hate her, but she can take it.

For the past four years, Eilish’s mother, Maggie Baird, has made a cameo appearance at the end of her interviews. This year, her mom was there for the interview but not visible. The pair remain very close. Her mother, Eilish explains, is also new to fame. But her worldview makes her the person Eilish relies on the most.
