Billie Eilish reveals advice John Mayer gave her at the start of her career

Billie Eilish has revealed the one piece of advice that John Mayer gave her at the start of her career.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the 22-year-old hitmaker opened up about being "afraid" to go out in public.

"I'm afraid," Billie admitted. "For a f**king good reason. I'm afraid of people, I'm afraid of the world. It's just scary for somebody like me, and even if it's not scary, it means being on and being vulnerable and being seen and being filmed and whatever."

She continued, "But with that all in mind, I have been choosing to do the thing that scares me more. I am biting the bullet and existing in the world for once."

Billie then revealed what John, 46, said to her at the start of her career in 2019, when she found her growing fame overwhelming.

"I remember him saying, 'It feels like it's going to feel like that forever, but it will go away, and in a way you want to take it in, because it will cool off, and people won't act like she's Bigfoot when they see her,'?" the Ocean Eyes singer shared. "That really stuck with me, because I was like, 'No, it is going to feel like this forever, and everywhere I go, people are going to look at me like they just saw a ghost.'"

Billie told the publication that John's prediction hasn't quite come true yet, but she hopes that the more she goes out, the less people will be shocked when they see her in public.

Billie's brother and co-writer Finneas then used U.S. supermarket Trader Joe's as an example, "If you go four times, somebody in the store is going to go, 'Oh, my God, I recognise that person.' And they're going to say that to their friend, and their friend's going to be like, 'Yeah, they're here all the time.' You normalise yourself, which is the right way to do it."
