Billie Eilish recently shared her experience of living with Tourette Syndrome during a guest appearance on The Ellen Show. During the discussion with Ellen Degeneres, the 17-year-old explained how going public about her diagnosis has created a closer bond with her fans.

"It’s something I’ve lived with my whole life, and it’s not anything different," she said. "I just never said anything because I didn’t want that to define who I was. I didn’t want it to be ‘Billie Eilish the artist with Tourette's.’

Eilish previously wrote about the disorder in a post on Instagram back in November. Watch a clip of the conversation in the video above. For more on Eilish, revisit our review of her debut full-length album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? right here.
