Billie responded, “I think that the reason that it was so weird to me was because one moment I was a fan and then suddenly I was looked at as this like higher up suddenly, even when I was 14, and it was so weird because I was like I am not even anyone. I just make music and these kids that I feel like I already know suddenly like ‘oh they are Billie’s fans and then there is Billie.’ So that’s why it was so weird to me because I think of them like literally my skin, like part of me and like I how I get through stuff. They always have my back. They are fans just as much as I am a fan but that doesn’t make them any less than me or anybody else you know?”
