Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell were great parents as they encouraged both the kids to express themselves and explore whatever interests they wanted, including all forms of arts like dancing, singing, and acting.

At age eight, Billie performed at a talent show and joined the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus. The first “real” song she wrote was for her mother’s songwriting class at just the age of eleven.

Fashion style

Billie Eilish has got much of the media attention revolving around her fashion style, which mainly consists of baggy, oversized clothing.

She disclosed in 2017 that she likes to dress out of her comfort zone and likes to feel the attention she grabs from everyone around her. She dresses really different from a lot of people and often dresses exactly opposite to what other wear.

Trying to look more memorable, Eilish quoted that she “proved to people that she is more important than they think and likes being kind of intimidating so other people will listen up to her.

In 2019, Billie Eilish also quoted that “over time it’s kind of becoming a thing, Billie Eilish, the weird, creepy, scary girl.’ And I don’t like that. It’s so lame. I just don’t want to stay one thing.” (Well if you remember around that time she also started getting trolled on social media via memes, so maybe that’s why she said this)

Billie Eilish revealed in an advertisement by Calvin Klein in 2019, that she mostly dresses in baggy clothes to prevent people from judging her body.

In March 2020, she also premiered a short film Not My Responsibility as part of the Where Do We Go? Tour in Miami, where she addressed her experience of body shaming.

In May 2020 this short film Not My Responsibility was also later uploaded to Billie Eilish’s YouTube Channel.

Billie was also featured on the cover of the issue of British Vogue of June 2021. The photographer Craig McDean featured her dressed in lingerie, focused especially on corsets.

At first, Billie lived with her parents in the neighborhood of Los Angeles in Highland Park, she moved out in 2019. Though she still spends many nights in her childhood bedroom to feel close to her parents – quoted by Billie herself in 2021.

She also quoted that she’s suffering from Tourette Syndrome, Synesthesia, and had suffered through depression also. (Most memes on the internet were about how she used depression to market her songs, just FYI)

She once had planned her own suicide, in which she claimed that XXXtentacion, a good friend of hers, stopped her and prevented her from suicide.

As for dating, Billie Eilish dated a rapper, Brandon Adams, who goes by his stage name 7:AMP but broke up at the beginning of 2020.

The month of June 2021 was totally about trolling Eilish on social media and criticizing her, She also became a subject of the cancel culture and vital media coverage after certain videos and judgments against her began getting attention.

In one of the videos, Billie was noticed mouthing an anti-Asian slur “chink” while lip-syncing to a song by Tyler, The Creator: Fish.

Eilish was also got blamed for queerbaiting when she used the caption “I love girls” to promote her music video for her new single “Lost Cause”, and that song later was also noted to contain “sapphic undertones and scenes”.

She later posted an apology to Instagram stories on June 22 for her usage of the slang “chin”, announcing that she was “appalled and embarrassed” by the video and that she was just “13 or 14” at the time and not aware of the actual meaning of the slur and didn’t know it was a derogatory term.

In that apology, she addressed another video too, which was viewed as her mocking an Asian accent, writing that in reality, she was actually “speaking in a silly gibberish made up voice” and not mocked any accent.
