When it comes to fashion, Billie revealed that clothing is a big part of her life.
“Oh my god, dude. That’s the first thing that matters in every day of my life,” she said. “Everywhere I go, everything I do. Everything. It’s the first thing that I think about that I barely even think about it”.
“It’s my whole identity. My whole personality is based off my clothes and what I’m wearing that day. I’ll have a different personality for a different outfit sometimes. If I’m wearing something I don’t feel comfortable in I will turn into a totally different persona that I hate,” she laughed.
As for her rapid rise to fame, Billie opened up about her recent concert in New Zealand where she was brought to tears after seeing girls in her merchandise that she designed in her room.
“I saw them crying and singing my lyrics at the top of their lungs and jumping and screaming and having the time of their lives,” Billie said. “It made me think about the way I used to watch documentaries of my favourite artists and I used to cry because it was so beautiful.”
“And there I was, on that stage … I stood there and just cried. It hurt in an amazing, beautiful, horrible, amazing way,” she said.
Along with her rising star has come a new title for Billie, who has been called the new face of pop.
“It’s annoying,” she said. “As grateful as I am for the appreciation and the love, honestly, I’ve become numb to it. I remember the first couple of times people called me the face of pop or pop’s new It girl or whatever the fuck … it kind of irked me. The weird thing about humans is we [think we] have to label everything, but we don’t.”
However, Billie said that she’s happy with where she’s at right now.
“It’s been a lot,” she said. “But right now it’s pretty perfect. I don’t have anything to complain about. I’m pretty happy.”
