Prior to a performance at the 2020 BRIT Awards, Billie Eilish and her brother FINNEAS sat down with Louise Minchin for BBC Breakfast to discuss their James Bond theme song, "No Time to Die," newfound fame, and social media. During the 15-minute interview, Eilish admitted that the internet is ruining her life.

“The cooler the things you get to do, the more people hate you. It’s crazy,” she said after disclosing that she recently stopped reading comments on Instagram. “It’s like way worse than it’s ever been right now.…I mean, it’s insane that I even have been reading comments up until this point. I should have stopped long ago," she added. "It’s just the problem that I’ve always wanted to stay in touch with the fans and, like, keep talking to them, and people have ruined that for me. And for them. They’ve ruined it for them, and that sucks. I still try to like fans’ posts or whatever.”

Eilish went on to discuss how some people will even dress up like her and parade around with a fan following, leaving her feeling sorry for those who think they've met her when they've only come in contact with an imposter.

Prior to discussing social media and newfound fame, Billie and FINNEAS dished on the making of "No Time to Die" for the new James Bond movie of the same name. They admitted they were hampered with a case of writer's block at the beginning of the process, but were able to ultimately come out of it and write the song in just three days.

“We really did not take the opportunity lightly, and we really just tried to work as hard as we could to prove ourselves worthy of that,” FINNEAS said of the opportunity to create the new Bond song. “We really wanted to make something that didn’t feel like we were trying to copy other great songs, so it was really helpful to listen to these songs.”

Eilish's statement regarding the internet ruining her life comes as she was recently trolled by Twitter for her controversial "rappers are liars" claim.
