The 20-year-old star struggled to enjoy her early success in the music business, but Billie is in a much better frame of mind now.

The singer – who was just 17 when she released her debut album – shared: “I really love it, and it’s really nice to be able to say that now, because I really didn’t like it for a few years.

“The first years of my career I was very young and very depressed and didn’t even know if I wanted something I had.”

Billie has gone through a series of behind-the-scenes changes in recent years and her whole outlook has been transformed.

The Bad Guy hitmaker told the Telekom Electronic Beats podcast: “I was kind of in this zone of, I don’t want to be here. Stupid little boy and I made changes.

“Then we got a less brutal tour schedule and we got more people and we didn’t have to do it all ourselves. And it just got really fun.”

Meanwhile, Billie recently revealed that she has become “friends” with Tourette syndrome.

The award-winning star was diagnosed with the neurological condition – which causes involuntary movements, jerks and noises – when she was just 11 years old and while she doesn’t “like” it, she has grown to see her condition as a “part of” hair.

Billie said: “It’s not like I like it, but I feel like it’s part of me. I’ve made friends with it. And now I’m pretty confident in it.

“When I’m moving, I don’t tickle at all. When I ride my horse, I don’t ride. When I move and think and focus, when I sing (I don’t tic).”
