How Going Blonde Helped Billie Eilish Feel More Comfortable In Public


It’s like saying “It’s so.” Billie Eilish is happier than ever with her new stripped-down look.

In her most recent interview with Vanity FairThis is the fifth appearance of pop superstar, “The Pop Star”. Time Capsule series—which was published on Tuesday, Nov. 30, the “Therefore I Am” singer discussed a plethora of changes she’s made over the past 12 months. She dropped her second album Happier Than Ever in the midst of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to discovering a newfound sense of confidence and maturity in her personal life, Eilish’s 2021 was an introspective experience. 

The obvious change for the pop star was to swap her trademark hyper-neon hairstyles in favor of a more mature and striking platinum blonde. Billie was not only a skin-deep change. She told the mag that the new icy locks actually helped her feel more comfortable being in public.

“My attitude used to be like, ‘I can’t go out, I can’t go here, I can’t go there,'”Eilish is recalled in horror. “I wasn’t able to go to a park or go get coffee, It freaked me out. But in the last year I opened up to it.”

She was no longer easy to spot and noted that she felt more confident in public because she went blonde. “If I’m being cautious and not trying to be in everybody’s faces, it’s cool….,”She said. “I didn’t used to be able to do that because my pride was too huge. I was like, ‘I only want to be seen if I look like myself.’ So I would never wear anything normal.”
