I remember watching this interview a long time ago, and now that they are remaking it is awesome. It really comes to show that being famous is stressful and sometimes you would with to be your old self again. Hope she’s doing ok

Billie Eilish is edgy but you can see how nice she still is. To be honest, I think it would be fun to meet her. She seems like a really nice person.

The Billie now looks more dark and depressed compared to the Billie last year. You can hear it in the tone of her voice, and it's not just her voice getting deeper. I just wanna give her a hug.

I’ve seen this look in people’s eyes too many times. She’s using and I hope she’s able to overcome it. Fame is so much pressure because fans don’t understand that these people are only human

Back here watching this noticing fame doesn't do anything but make you feel lost,I have also wanted to be famous and I'm sure a lot of other people have too,but when you think about it deeply it's like if you sing,dance,anything the only thing that it's going to give you besides money and fame is sadness.

Imagine having all the stages of your adolescent life on social media for everyones entertainment. Its crazy, but then again her angel and emo styles are just fashion statements, and dont really represent her mental health. Who is she, she really mellow

Honestly doesn’t see like these videos are a year apart, more like 5 years apart... the fame sounds like it made her wiser but she looks drained of a lot of her youth. Maybe she should take some time off, to really get to know herself... after all she’s still really young. *My heart goes out to her beautiful soul* ❤️❤️❤️

It's like she's smiling with her mouth, but her eyes aren't. You can see her losing herself. Not metaphorically, but emotionally. There's so much weight on her shoulders.

Get this girl some help, she's done a lot, i bet she has it all but she's still so broke inside. She needs it seriously. I don't think she's changed much, you can see pure sadness in her eyes even tho she tries to fake it with a smile..
