An emotional Billie Eilish broke down at the 2020 BRIT Awards last night after admitting social media trolls had made her ‘feel hated.’
The American star claimed the award for Best International Female Artist from Spice Girl Mel C, just moments after performing new James Bond theme No Time To Die live for the first time.
Addressing fans at London’s O2 Arena, a visibly moved Billie told the star-studded audience: ‘I wanted to say something that I was thinking like two seconds ago… I’ve felt very hated recently.
Struggling to compose herself, she added: ‘And when I was on the stage and I saw you guys smiling at me, it genuinely made me want to cry, and I want to cry right now, so thank you.’
Billie’s triumph comes after she discussed her recent decision to take a step back from social media, and specifically stop reading the comments on her Instagram posts.
