The 22-year-old singer has opened up about the downside of fame, and revealed as well as having a protective pit bull called Shark, she also has security guards, and she became "resentful of her life" due to the threats.

She told Rolling Stone magazine: "It's not in the job description, for sure.

"I had really scary things happen in my personal life and my safety was compromised a couple of times, and that's a big part of my life.

"That is something I just have to live with. But I don't know, it really made me resentful of my life, when you can't even be in your own house."

The 'bad guy' hitmaker didn't go into detail about any of the specific experiences.

However, she did get very candid when asked about what helps her "decompress" from the stress in her life.

She said: "Sex. I basically talk about sex any time I possibly can. That's literally my favorite topic.

The singer confirmed to de Rolling Stone magazine that he had what she describes as an existential crisis at her 20th-birthday party. "I looked around the room and every single person was an employee of mine," she says. "I was like, 'Oh, shit, I literally don't have friends. I don't have people that see me as an equal. I don't have people that aren't afraid of me.'" She couldn't relate to songs that referenced friendship — the Beatles' "With a Little Help From My Friends," Lily Allen's "Smile" — and she says listening to them made her feel sick to her stomach.

"My experience as a woman has been that it's seen in such a weird way. People are so uncomfortable talking about it, and weirded out when women are very comfortable in their sexuality and communicative in it.

"I think it's such a frowned-upon thing to talk about, and I think that should change. You asked me what I do to decompress? That ... can really, really save you sometimes, just saying. Can't recommend it more, to be real."

Billie - who is one of the world's best-selling musicians - previously suggested that most people would struggle to relate to her experience of fame.

She told the BBC: "It's like trying to explain a colour that doesn't exist."

In 2019, Katy Perry urged Billie to call her if she wanted to talk to someone who understood the pressures of fame.

The 'No Time to Die' hitmaker added: "I should call her up. At the time I just didn't believe her. It was already so crazy. I couldn't imagine it being crazier."

"I'm afraid," she said to the Rolling Stone magazine. "For a fucking 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. 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."


The singer and his brother Finneas O'Connell are the first young artist to win two Oscars. Firsthand, with "What Was I Made For?" to the movie Barbie. She was only 22 years old. Secondhand with "No Time to Die" in 2022 for the James Bond movie.
