Billie Eilish has candidly discussed her struggles with body image.

During an interview for U.S. Vogue magazine, published on Wednesday, the Bad Guy hitmaker shared that her issues with her appearance started at the age of 13 when she suffered a hip injury.

"I felt like my body was gaslighting me for years," she said. "I had to go through a process of being like, 'My body is actually me. And it's not out to get me.'"

After she had to stop dancing, Billie channelled her energy into music, releasing Ocean Eyes in 2015.

But after years of failing to get a diagnosis, her outlook changed when her movement coach discovered that she has hypermobility, a condition in which some or all of a person's joints have an unusually large range of movement.

"Going through my teenage years of hating myself and all that stupid s**t, a lot of it came from my anger toward my body, and how mad I was at how much pain it's caused me, and how much I've lost because of things that happened to it," the 21-year-old added.
