One thing Billie Eilish will do is keep it real with her fans.

In her latest interview with Vanity Fair, which was published on Monday, Jan. 25, the "Therefore I Am" singer revealed that she wasn't "in a great mental place" when she created her 2019 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

And while she admitted that "parts of it were great" and she "love that album" the 11-time Grammy winner evaluated her emotions during that time and decided to begin talking to a therapist.

Since then, she noted being in a better place, especially while recording her current work. She expressed her new music, "feels exactly how I want it to. There isn't one song, or one part of one song, that I wish was this or that I wish it was that."

In the interview, Billie also revealed what she's been up to when she's not recording music, including ordering online. "It's a really weird position I'm in," she told the outlet. "I feel kind of stupid because I'm like, I don't know how much Froot Loops are. I tried to order one box of Froot Loops and I was like, Oh yeah, sure. It's $35. I didn't know that that's expensive. I ordered 70 boxes."

Billie Eilish's Most Relatable Moments

Outside of her upcoming documentary, Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry, the artist has done well chronicling her life on social media, like any average Gen-Zer. However, the highly anticipated movie will give fans access to an even deeper Billie, if you can even imagine.

As many may recall, the 19-year-old released the official trailer back in December, which adorably featured her lounging in her parents Maggie and Patrick Baird's bed strolling on her phone.

"This is my parents' bed," Billie said. "I sleep in here because I'm scared of monsters in my room."

Later in the trailer, she has an introspective moment with her mom where she asked, "Why can't we just miss people though? Why do we have to cope? Why can't we just let it happen?" To which Maggie replied, "Because it hurts.."

Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry will be in theatres and on Apple TV+ on February 26, 2021.
