- Billie Eilish says she has never felt powerful in a relationship.
- She doesn't want to be in a relationship at the moment and doesn't feel attracted to people.
- She is however, learning to feel proud of her success.
In the July/August issue of British GQ magazine, Billie says she's never quite felt powerful in a relationship, except once. However, she confesses that she took advantage of that person's kindness as she wasn't used to it.
The singer also shares that she's never felt physically desired by someone and therefore is not planning to get into a relationship at the moment.

"I went through a period of wanting to be like everybody else. But that went away pretty fast." On the imperative of graft and the embarrassment of plaudits; on body image and the conflict of desire; on pop, rap and pigeonholing; and on the terrible scrutiny of social media that took her to the brink of suicide: this is #BillieEilish, our July/August 2020 cover star.

Speaking about her success, she says she's learning to be proud of it after fellow singer, Alicia Keys, warned her not to be "embarrassed for being dope".
The 18-year-old singer became the second-ever artist to win all four main gongs for Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and Record of the year, in the same year at the Grammy Awards earlier this year.
At the time, she believed that other nominees should have won the awards and not her. However, after Alicia recently gave her a call and encouraged her not to be embarrassed but rather proud and enjoy her success, the teen is proud of her achievements.
