Billie Eilish has spoken candidly about the prospect of motherhood, saying she'd ‘rather die’ than not have kids.
The superstar hit-maker also revealed her worries about having children, explaining that although she wants to be a mum, she also ‘dreads it’.
Speaking in a new interview, Eilish also opened up about her family, feeling unsafe in America and her gruelling tour schedules.
She told The Sunday Times: “[I would] rather die [than not have kids]. I need them.”
“The older I get, the more I experience things, I just think, uuuugh, what am I going to do when my kid thinks that this is the right thing to do and I’m, like, no, it’s not! And they won’t listen to me.”
Reflecting on last month’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Eilish spoke about how ‘scary’ being a young person in today’s America is.
“Why is it OK to be scared to go to school?” she queried. “You go to school and be prepared for a life-changing traumatic experience or dying. What? Who? Where is the logic there?”
The history-making musician also told the paper that she finds her mum Maggie ‘annoying’, but in an endearing way.
Eilish noted that ‘everyone’ finds their own mums annoying before gushing about how much she loves Maggie, adding: “She is like a book, she knows everything, and I’m so grateful because I don’t know s**t about s**t.”
At the time of her interview, Eilish was on the European leg of her Happier Than Ever tour and admitted she went days without seeing natural light due to her show schedule.
To help the star orient herself, Eilish said her tour manager will burn different-smelling candles in her dressing room, with a different scent in each continent, something the star said ‘gives her a way to measure the passing of time and places’.
This weekend, Eilish is set to become the youngest-ever solo headliner to grace Glastonbury festival.
It was announced back in October that she was set to headline the Pyramid stage on Friday (24 June), with Emily Eavis gushing at the time: “We couldn’t be happier to announce that the wondrous Billie Eilish is headlining the Pyramid on the Friday at next year’s Glastonbury Festival, becoming the youngest solo headliner in our history. This feels like the perfect way for us to return and I cannot wait!”
