Billie Eilish Talks About Tourette’s Syndrome

In the world of entertainment, Billie Eilish stands out for her unique personality and straightforward attitude. She approaches her career with a strong sense of dedication, driven by her passion for music and her fans, finding some stability in her life through it.

In a recent episode of David Letterman’s show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” on Netflix, Eilish openly discussed her experience living with Tourette’s syndrome, a neurological condition diagnosed when she was 11. Tourette’s syndrome is characterized by involuntary verbal and physical tics, which may seem odd or unpredictable to observers.

“People often react by laughing, assuming I’m joking,” Eilish shared about how her tics are perceived in public. “This reaction always offends me deeply.”

While Eilish’s Tourette’s symptoms have lessened since her childhood, they still play a role in her life. “These tics may not be obvious during a conversation with me,” Eilish explained, “but they take a toll on me.”

Interestingly, Eilish mentioned that she doesn’t experience tics while she’s performing on stage. “When I’m onstage and moving around, the tics disappear completely,” she revealed.

Eilish expressed her willingness to speak publicly about living with Tourette’s, finding it “intriguing.” She acknowledged that there are other musicians with Tourette’s but chose not to disclose their identities, respecting their privacy. She emphasized, “I won’t reveal them if they prefer to keep it private.”
