Regrets … Billie Eilish admits to having more than a few, but she says the internet won’t let her or the world forget any … and that makes her constantly cringe.
Billie was referring, at least in part, to the recently remade video of her using an epithet and speaking with a stereotypical Asian accent… when she told Vogue Australia, “I’ve said so many things when I’m not totally agree with now, or think otherwise. “
She said that video was from when she was 13 or 14, and the now 19-year-old singer says, “The internet brings up things from everyone’s past and I’m like, don’t you understand that everyone is incredibly embarrassed and ashamed of their past? “
Well, not everyone has used racist phrases or epithets… but you get their point – and to her, it sounds like social media that makes it impossible to let go of the mistakes of the past.
“The strangest thing is that nothing ever goes away once on the internet. Every interview I did when I was 15 is still there, and I think about it constantly.”
Billie has previously admitted that she was “embarrassed and dismayed” when the video appeared on TikTok, showing her uttering the insult, “ch ** k”, as she sang along with it. Tyler the creatorthe song of “Poisson”.
In her statement, she added that she did not know, at that age, the term was derogatory to the Asian community.
While fans can forgive her, forgetting is a whole other challenge … at least for Billie.
