『歌手ビリー・アイリッシュ(17歳)が自傷癖に苦しんでいた過去を告白』 「Billie Eilish Shares Personal Struggle With Self Harming & Surviving Depression: It Sent Me ‘Down A Hole’」 Hollywoodlife July 31, 2019より
Billie Eilish was thrust into the public eye at just 14-years-old, & revealed the toll fame has taken on her and her battle with depression in a new cover story for ‘Rolling Stone.’
Billie Eilish, 17, used her latest cover story to get incredibly honest about her mental health struggles, including a history of depression and self-harm. The “Ocean Eyes” singer is the face of Rolling Stone’s August issue and while it celebrates her success, it also sheds light on the singer’s darker days, when she was forced to quit dancing after an injury. “I think that’s when the depression started,” she said. “It sent me down a hole. I went through a whole self-harming phase — we don’t have to go into it. But the gist of it was, I felt like I deserved to be in pain,” she recalled in the new interview.
The honest pop star then proceeded to delve deeper into those memories, and admitted there was a time she was scared to spend time by herself. “Every time I was alone, I would break down and kind of crumble,” she says. “It got to the point where my friend would say, ‘I’m going home, see you,’ and I’d get this feeling in my stomach like a knife being twisted around. I felt unsafe with myself, even for an hour,” she said before once again alluding to her self-harm history. “I don’t trust myself when I’m alone.”
