Billie candidly continued: "People hold on to these memories and have an attachment. But it’s very dehumanizing."

"I had no goal of 'This is going to make everybody think differently of me'. I’ve had different coloured hair and vibes for everything I’ve ever done. I wanted this album to have its own thing."
