Regarding herself, Eilish said: I am truly different from many people, and I try to be like that. I don’t like to follow the rules at all. If someone starts wearing something in a certain way, I will wear the opposite. I always wear what I want and always say what I want to say. I’m super, super out there. I like to be remembered, so I like to look memorable. I think I have proven to people that I am more important than they think. I am somewhat intimidating, so people will listen. I’m kind of scary. Many people are just afraid of me. I have a bitch’s face.
