And now, in a new interview with the Sunday Times, Billie has doubled down on her stance, declaring that she’s super-keen on having children in the future.

And the young artist made it clear that she isn’t just half-heartedly hoping to have kids — Billie said she’d “rather die” than not start a family of her own.

“I was worried about what would happen to them, I was worried about what would happen to me, I was worried about being forgotten.”

“I couldn’t sleep by myself,” Billie said. “If I woke up and my parents weren’t in the bed and the lights were off, I would scream until they came to the door. And I couldn’t step off the bed in the dark because I was certain that there were scorpions crawling all over the floor.”

Elsewhere in the wide-ranging interview, Billie touched on the attention that’s been paid to her evolving style over the years that she’s been in the spotlight.

If you didn’t know, the young artist was well known for the casual, oversize outfits she rocked during the early years of her career, which she revealed she wore to avoid being body-shamed or sexualized.

However, Billie would go on to occasionally ditch her signature looks for more “feminine” outfits, which also included swapping her famous black and green locks for a new blonde ’do last March.

Sadly, some critics slammed the photo shoot as “cringy” and “disingenuous.” In fact, Billie recalled losing 100,000 followers after posting a picture wearing a corset and a lace bra, suggesting that some people had an “attachment” to her signature style, which she branded “very dehumanizing.”

At the time, Billie also condemned those who’d criticized her Vogue cover, saying: “It was supposed to be a specific aesthetic for a photo shoot, and then it was like, ‘Billie Eilish’s new style’ … It was so weird because I was like, ‘It’s not a new style, it’s one thing I wore.’”

Discussing the topic once again months later, Billie called out social media users who had pitted her two distinct styles against each other and drawn unwarranted comparisons.

“I saw a picture of me on the cover of Vogue [from] a couple of years ago with big, huge oversize clothes [next to] the picture of [the latest Vogue]. Then the caption was like, ‘That’s called growth,’” she told Rolling Stone last June. “I understand where they’re coming from, but at the same time, I’m like, ‘No, that’s not OK … I didn’t need to grow from that.’”

“Being known for the whole start of your career for one thing — she wears baggy clothes and she sings like this — it was driving me mad,” she said.

“Wearing baggy clothes, nobody is attracted to me, I feel incredibly unlovable and unsexy and not beautiful, and people shame you for not being feminine enough. Then you wear something more revealing and they’re, like, you’re such a fat cow whore,” she said.
