Billie Eilish Gets Candid About Tourette Syndrome

Billie Eilish Gets Candid About Tourette Syndrome


We’re back with Billie Eilish. And so you’ve got huge– I mean, like you’ve got fans
that are Julia Roberts, Sam Smith, Thom Yorke. Dave Grohl is here. He’s a huge fan of yours. You know, I mean, like
you have major people that are fans of yours. It’s unreal. It’s crazy because,
like, I don’t know. I feel like recently
I’ve met a lot of people that my parents
grew up as fans of. Right. You know, and that’s no
disrespect to your age– Right. –Dave. [LAUGHS] [LAUGHTER] But– no, but it’s– I think that’s when
it really hits me. Yeah. Because, you know, I was in– I was even in a meeting
with Stella McCartney, and she Face Timed her dad,
which is Paul McCartney. Paul McCartney. Right. So, you know, my mom cried. My dad cried. Yeah. Like, it was– your
eyes are so beautiful. [LAUGHTER] Me? Yeah, you. Oh. I thought you were
still telling a story. No. Your eyes are beautiful. Thank you. Yeah. Thank you. Yeah. All right. So– so that– is that who
freaked you out the most, is Paul McCartney, do you think? Probably. I feel like probably. But, in London, Sporty
Spice came backstage. Oh. And– Sporty Spice. –that meant something to you? It did. Did you follow the Spice Girls? You’re too young for that. OK. Can I tell you something? Well, you’re here. So– [LAUGHTER] You might as well. So when I was growing
up, I would watch– growing up. [LAUGHS] I’m 17. [LAUGHS] We would watch Spice World. Like, I watched that
movie like 40 times. And I thought it was, like, a
fictional movie about a group of girls who were in a group. And they sang. And I thought that was it. Yeah. I was like– and I remember
like some– like, Spice Girls, I was like, oh, my god. They’re reenacting the movie. Yeah. [LAUGHTER] Because I thought it was like– I thought I was like a fictional
movie about some girls– Right. –called the Spice Girl. Right. It wasn’t. No, no. [LAUGHTER] And so you spoke
about something that I think is really important and– and brave, that you didn’t
intend to speak about, but that you have
Tourette’s syndrome, and that it comes
out at certain times. But I think that’s amazing that
you spoke about it because you kind of take away the,
you know, scariness of it. It’s something I’ve
lived with my whole life. And everybody knows. Like, everybody in my
family, all my friends, all the people that are
closest to me know I have it. And it’s not anything
different, you know? And I just never said anything
because I didn’t want to– I didn’t want that
to define who I was. I don’t want it to
be like, Billie, the artist with Tourette’s,
Billie Eilish is on Ellen. Yeah. I have ways of kind of
making them go away. So if I’m on like– if it’s
like an on camera interview or whatever– That’s what this is. Yes, it is. [LAUGHTER] But, normally, if it’s
like a pretaped thing, they cut out the questions. Right. And that’s when I let them out. But then there was
this one interview where they didn’t
tell me they weren’t going to cut the questions out. So I’m– I’m sitting there,
answering the questions like, uh huh. And then they– they start
asking me a question, and I’m like. And then everyone’s
like, that’s so funny. And they made a whole– Yeah. There was tons of compilations,
like, this is so funny that Billie did this facial
expression, when really it’s just a bunch of tics. Right. Well, no. I think it– like
I said, I think it’s a good thing
that you– you– because I am sure
a lot of people have that, and look at where you
are, and look at what you have accomplished, and you
haven’t let that even make you feel like there’s
something wrong with it. Because it’s not. It’s just part of who you are. I think I’ve also really learned
that, like, a lot of my fans have it. Yeah. Like, which made me feel kind
of more at home with saying it. Yeah. Because I remember
post– and also I felt like there was
a connection there. I felt like when
I said that, there were kids that were posting
and being like, oh, my god. I’ve always had this. Yeah. Like, now she has it and she’s
who I can look up to with it. But– Yeah, no. I think it’s– like I said, I
think a lot of people watching now that, you know, maybe didn’t
hear you say it before will be like, well, I have it, too. And that’s great. Mhm.

  • Mowee Westy

    Main reason to her success is based on the way she writes songs. Not so much to do with voice skills, mainly due to her overall "depressing" based songs and bored-sounding singing. It really grasps her audience by breaking out the anxiety, but the rest was autotune.

  • Frank Phillips

    I wonder when she’ll come out?
