The Grammy-class 18 year old singer who would be performing at the 2020 Grammys on Sunday, disclosed that she had struggles and moments of depression that almost resulted in suicide. The 18-year-old star has turned to her lyrics as a way of expressing those struggles.

“I didn’t ever think I would be happy again, ever,” she said.

As Eilish shared, “I don’t want to be too dark, but I genuinely didn’t think I would make it to 17.”

“You didn’t think you’d make it to 17?” King responded. “But did you think that you would do something to yourself?”

The star responded, “Yeah.”

She went further to share a story on how she struggled with thoughts of suicide in Berlin.

“I remember there was a window right there,” she said of her empty hotel room. “And I, God. I remember crying because I was thinking about how the way that I was gonna die was I was gonna do it.”

King noted that the pressure and isolation that came with her becoming famous contributed to her emotional instability.

In the song “Bury A Friend,” she sings the line, “I wanna end me.” King asked the artist if that line was intended to be about herself.

“It was,” she shared. “It also rhymed.”

She explained that the serious lyrics came from a deeply unhappy time of her life.

“I was so unhappy last year,” Eilish said. “I was so unhappy, and I was so joyless.”

Nonetheless, she seemed to have gotten over all those depressives, now in a better place.

Speaking of meeting with fans that have suicide thoughts, Eilish told King, “I just grab them by the shoulders and I’m like, ‘Please take care of yourself and be good to yourself and be nice to yourself. Don’t take that extra step and hurt yourself further and then you can’t take it back.'”
