Billie Eilish Reveals How Meditation Helped Her Out of a “Dark Situation”

Billie Eilish is opening up about her skyrocketed stardom, crediting meditation to helping her remain calm.

“It actually helped me through a very, very dark situation that I was in,” she told V Magazine in a new interview. “I would lie in bed miserable in the middle of the night, on a tour bus, back when I didn’t want to be doing what I was doing. It was just a dark period of, unfortunately, resenting life, which I feel badly about, because I shouldn’t have been resenting anything. I was doing things that were fun. I just wasn’t having fun doing them.”

Eilish began using a meditation app when she began having trouble sleeping a couple years ago. “I was having a lot of really, really unbelievably terrible nightmares,” she said. “I was having weird sleep paralysis. It was just not a good period for my brain. I couldn’t sleep. I would go to bed at like four in the morning and wake up at one in the afternoon. And I would listen to that meditation app every single time I needed to take a breath and not think about the horrors that were going on in my mind.”

During the interview, the musician reflected on how her life has changed since becoming a celebrity. “It’s an unbelievable 50/50,” she said about fame giving her equal restrictions and freedom. “There are so many things that I would never ever be able to do if I didn’t have what I have, and so many things that I can never do again. And that, that’s the thing that is freaky — never — you know? Just hearing that word come out of my mouth freaks me out.”
