Billie Eilish revealed during The Gayle King Grammy Special on Thursday that she considered trying to kill herself in 2018 after becoming overwhelmed by fame.
The 18-year-old singer has been nominated for six Grammy Awards on Sunday after seeing her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, spawn six Billboard Top 100 hits.
Billie shared that her success and the subsequent loss of friends who couldn’t relate to her new circumstances left her bereft and clinically depressed.
‘I was so unhappy last year,’ she told Gayle, 65, during the CBS special. ‘I was so unhappy and I was so like, joyless.’
‘I don’t want to be too dark, but I genuinely didn’t think I’d make it to 17,’ Billie added. –THE MALAYA POST
