At just 19 years old, the “Your Power” artist has accomplished more than most musicians have even at the height of their careers. Eilish has multiple Grammy awards, a massive fan base, and had made a name for herself in the entertainment industry as well as in mainstream society.

The song earned Eilish her first true wave of fans and every year her influence seems to expand. To date, the talented songwriter boasts a staggering 83.7 million followers on Instagram alone and that number is sure to increase with the upcoming release of her sophomore album.
Billie Eilish has come of age in the spotlight
Of course, navigating adolescence in the spotlight has presented Eilish with her fair share of challenges, even whilst her career was steadily reaching new heights.

Throughout the years, Eilish has also found her voice outside of her music. Using her platform, she has spoken out about important social justice issues as well as movements like body positivity. The latter has become important to Eilish as her body has been a topic of conversation for many years. Because she chose to wear oversized clothing, the media has developed an unhealthy obsession with the teenager’s body.
