Billie Eilish has revealed that she doesn't look at social media anymore and has deleted social media platforms from her phone having about 108 million followers on Instagram.
Social media has become an essential part of any celebrity’s life.
Many celebrities have openly admitted that social media has helped them to enhance their careers as it allows them to have direct connections with their fans and build a positive image.
But of late we are also seeing how it has also started taking a toll on the mental health of celebrities because they have also become an easy target for netizens for online trolling. And hence many have even opted to quit or take a break from their social media.
The 21-year-old singer said that she's “deleted” all social media apps from her phone in a new clip from a forthcoming interview on Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend podcast. “I don't look at it anymore,” she said.
Billie also noted that the drastic move was such a huge deal for her.
"I feel like I grew up in the perfect time of the Internet when it wasn't so internet that I didn't have a childhood and I was doing stuff all the time," The singer said.
Adding that "It was computers and games on computers, but barely, we were doing stuff and then when I became a preteen there were phones and then I got a little older there was all of what the internet has become."
The Bad Guy singer spoke about how she isn’t comfortable with looking at posts about her.
“I’m a person who goes on the internet… And to change nothing about the person I am or the life that I live, and to just keep doing what I do over the years, and slowly the videos that I’m watching and the things that I see on the internet are about me. ‘Eww, stinky.’ I don’t like that,” she said.
Adding that," the other thing that freaks me out about the internet is how gullible it makes you. Anything I read on the internet, I believe. Me. I know for a fact that’s stupid, and I shouldn’t do that because I have proof it’s not all true; almost none of it’s true.”
