Billie Eilish, a rising star in the music industry in the United States, has stated that she is sorry for using the derogatory term when she was younger, mocking Asian accents.

The musician, who is 19 years old, opened out about her feelings regarding her past.

Billie Eilish was referring to the two videos in which she was seen ridiculing Asian accents. According to her, the videos date back to when she was 13 or 14.

“It’s really weird how the world can see every aspect of your life and reminisce about [it]. It’s so weird,” the singer told Vogue Australia in a new interview.

“The internet brings up things from everybody’s past and I’m like: ‘Don’t you guys understand that everybody is incredibly embarrassed and ashamed about their past?'”

Billie Eilish is open about her embarrassment at having uttered things she should not have said. “Like, do you not think about the fact that maybe you’re embarrassed of your past, so maybe everybody else is embarrassed, too?”

“I said so many things then that I totally don’t agree with now, or think the opposite thing.”

Billie Eilish shared similar sentiments last month when she made a lengthy apology to her followers. She apologized when the five-year-old videos suddenly went viral on the internet.

“I mouthed a word from a song that at the time I didn’t know was a derogatory term used against members of the Asian community. I am appalled and embarrassed and want to barf that I ever mouthed along to that word,” she wrote.

“This song was the only time I’d ever heard that word as it was never used around me by anyone in my family.”

“Regardless of my ignorance and age at the time, nothing excuses the fact is that it was hurtful. And for that I am sorry,” she added.
