Billie Eilish has reflected on being "very depressed" during the early stages of her career.

The Grammy award-winner was on the Telekom Electronic Beats podcast when she opened up on her love for performing and touring again, especially after the pandemic rearranged life as we knew it.

The host, Lindi Delight, asked her if she loved touring again.

"The first few years of my career, I was very young and very depressed and didn't even know if I wanted anything that I had," she said.

The singer says she made changes to her touring schedule and made rules for herself, like not being gone longer than four weeks, which has made her enjoy it.

"I don't want to be gone too long because what happens is the thing that you find so much joy in and so much fun in becomes this chore, and you don't want that," she said. 

The star added that it doesn't matter what you do, who you are, what you like or don't like, but when you do something too much and too often or for too long, it can be unenjoyable.
