Billie Eilish opened up to her fans on her Instagram Story on Friday (October 18) about things that she saw in her comments and tags that were bothering her. While she admitted she hasn't checked her mentions in about a week, when she did, she didn't like what she was seeing.
The 17-year-old took some time from her busy schedule to talk directly to her legion of dedicated fans after noticing her fans defending her. While she never explained exactly what they were defending her from she made it clear she was not here for any hate or drama.
During the video, she begged her fans to be nicer, especially to each other. “It really sucks how mean you guys are being to each other,” she told the camera. She also explained she understood they were trying to defend her but it seemed to make things worse and that in defending her, some fans came off even meaner than whoever first caused the drama —which could have started when a fan stole a ring off her finger.
In one candid moment, she admitted that she receives a ton of hate but has gotten used to it. “I don’t care if people are being mean to me, it’s my entire life… is hate all the time," she explained. “It’s totally fine, I’m very used to it. It doesn’t bother me anymore.”
At the end of the day, Eilish wanted her fans to "just be nicer to each other.” Well said.
