Billie Eilish reveals she deleted all social media apps from her phone

Billie Eilish reveals she deleted all social media apps from her phone.

Billie Eilish, who has 110M followers on Instagram, revealed she’s taken the plunge and deleted all social media apps on her phone.

“I don’t look at it anymore,” the 21-year-old singer said on an upcoming episode of the “Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend” podcast.

“I deleted it all off my phone, which is such a huge deal for me. Cause dude, you didn’t have the internet to grow up with.”

“For me, it was such a big part of – not my childhood, I wasn’t an iPad baby, thank god – but honestly, I feel like I grew up in the perfect time of the internet that it wasn’t so internet-y, I had such a childhood, and I was doing stuff all the time,” she explained.

“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 admitted.

“That’s 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.”

Eilish has spoken openly about her frustrations with body shamers and online trolls.

In 2020, she fought back against the critics by stripping down in a YouTube video titled “Not My Responsibility.”

In a video for Calvin Klein in 2019, the “Ocean Eyes” singer said she never wants “the world to know everything about me.” But the “Happier Than Ever” singer said her relationship with the internet started to change as she got older. “When I became a pre-teen, there were iPhones, and as I got a little older, there was all of what has become. But being a pre-teen and a teenager on the internet, those were my people. I was one of them. I was one of those people on the internet. And then, to have within myself feel like nothing changed, but suddenly I'm doing what I've always done and looking at the internet because I am an internet person...and slowly the videos that I'm watching and the things that I see on the internet are about me. Ew, stinky, I don't like that,” she said.

This isn't the first time that Eilish has admitted her fame has made her have to seriously reconsider her online activities. In June 2021, she admitted to the LA Times that she had completely stopped reading the comments on Instagram. When asked why, she explained, “Because otherwise I will spiral out, and shit’s mean as fuck. There are some people, like my brother [Finneas], who can get a text from someone he doesn’t like and delete it immediately. He won’t even read it. I can’t do that. If Satan himself texted me, I’d be, like, ‘What did he say?’” The Grammy winner continued, “I want to hear what people have to say, and also, because I’ve grown up on the internet, I mostly agree with a lot of what the internet says. Some of the things that they make fun of people for are funny because they’re kinda true, right? Which then worries me because I’m like, ‘Oh, God, are the mean things [about me] actually true? And what are they?’ I want to know them! But I don’t want to know them, because what is that going to do for me? Nothing.”
