Billie Eilish has been reflecting on her time in self-isolation while at home with her family amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The teenage singer has been isolating at her parents Los Angeles home and she’s enjoying the tranquillity of the experience so far which is a world away from what she has become accustomed to over the last couple of years.
The ‘Bad Guy’ singer was speaking to the ‘Telekom Electronic Beats’ podcast and revealed: “I’ve been really enjoying being alone. I feel like everybody on the Internet has been on FaceTime all day long with their friends. I love my friends, I can’t wait to see them, I do miss them a lot, but at the same time, I’m good. I’m good being alone—I like being alone.”
She then spoke about if she thinks there will be a difference in mindset once life returns back to normality: “As soon as we can see people again and go out, we’re going to be so happy and grateful. And in about three days, we’re all going to take it for granted again.”
Adding with a pinch of cynicism: “That’s the way people work. It’s the way humans are made, You miss something so bad once you don’t have it. You never think about it when you have it.”
Eilish also spoke about the best decisions in her career so far and her creative process on making her music and videos: “I think maybe sticking to my own ideas and treatments for like videos, all my own ideas for like artwork,” she said. “I think another one is like making music with my brother, and not a bunch of randos. There’s nothing wrong with that: it’s just, for me, I don’t think it would have ended out good.”
“I think my brother and I really have used that over the years and realised that it’s like, you don’t have to say yes to everything. Even if it’s going to give you way more money, it’s like you’ve got to do what you think is going to help you, or you think is right for you.”
