There is very little in her young life like Billie Eilish Not opened aroundbut she was relatively private about her experience with TurrettWindrum. Apparently, that’s only because no one asked about it.
David Letterman only brought up the subject when she encountered an involuntary movement while filming her interview My next guest needs no introduction. “If you picture me long enough, you’ll see a lot of tics,” she explained. The hostess asked if it was okay to discuss the case, to which she replied, “Sure.”
“It’s really weird, I didn’t talk about it at all,” she said. “The most common way people react is by laughing because they think I’m trying to be funny. They think I’m [ticcing] As a funny move. And so they go, “Haha,” and I’m always incredibly offended by that. Or they go “what?” Then I go, “I have Tourette’s syndrome.”
“A lot of people have it and you’ll never know,” she continued. Two artists came forward and said, ‘I’ve always had a turret. And I wouldn’t take them out because they don’t want to talk about it. But that was really fun for me because I was like, ‘You do?’ what?'”
The Grammy winner had previously shared about the diagnosis, which she has been struggling with since she was 11 years old The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but she hasn’t discussed it much since then. “I’m very happy to talk about it,” Letterman said. “I really like answering questions about this topic because it’s really interesting, and I’m really confused about it. I didn’t get it.”
The tics don’t occur when Eilish is performance (or ride, or move, or “think and focus”) but it happens a lot off stage. “I don’t cramp at all, because the tics that I have are constantly, like, rocking my ears back and forth and raising my eyebrow and squeezing my jaw and flexing that arm here and this arm there. These are things you would never notice if you were having a conversation with me, but they are stressful to me Extremely “.
“It’s not like I love him,” she said, “but I feel like he’s…a part of me.” “I made friends with her. Now, I am very confident about it.”
