1. Internet hate and its effects

Constantly being under the spectacle of many takes a toll on any person, let alone a 14-year-old depressed teenager. Billie was exposed to the good, the bad, and the ugly at an extremely young age. The documentary paints the picture of how being a perfectionist while having an audience of millions can affect someone's self-confidence.

When the teen forgot the lyrics to her song 'all the good girls go to hell' at Coachella 2019, Billie took the imperfection to heart. Despite her fans and family cheering her on, a mistake made amongst thousands can affect the confidence of a 17-year-old girl.

2. Her history with depression and self-harm

Fans of the 'Bad Guy' singer are no strangers to her history with mental illnesses and self-harm. Other than being diagnosed with depression at the age of 13, Billie also opens up about harming herself at the age of 14. She furthermore weighs in on what it's like handling her celebrity status as someone who's diagnosed with Tourette syndrome- a condition of the nervous system which forces people to have 'tics', which is doing any action repeatedly (blinking, making sounds, twitching).

3. Billie's secret boyfriend

Although the teen hadn't been exactly hiding her relationship, she hadn't been open about it either. Billie's documentary gives us a raw insight into how her relationship with ex-boyfriend 'Q' went and also why it broke off. It's evident that the couple was blurring the lines between what was considered healthy and destructive, and they were better off without each other. After Q punched a wall and broke his wrist, Billie realized she can't fix him and the pair decided to go their separate ways.

4. The Eilish family's support

Unlike most superstars, Billie chose to stay at her family home with her parents and brother, even after she turned 18. Her songs themselves are a family production with his brother playing a major role as Billie's producer. Her supportive parents are a huge reason behind her early success and the singer is shown to share every aspect of her song-making process with her family.

5. Being the ultimate Justin Bieber fangirl

Calling Billie a Justin Bieber fan is probably the biggest understatement. The 'when the party's over' singer has never tried to hide her admiration for Justin, going as far as saying:

"I don't care if he pooped and put it on a plate and put that in a store."

They met at Coachella for the first time, which resulted in tears from Billie's side (obviously). Justin has advanced their relationship from that interaction, and it's safe to say that Billie is now friends with her biggest inspiration. You go, girl!
