  • Billie Eilish recently told The Times that she would "rather die" than not become a mother.

  • However, she also said she "dreads" having kids that "won't listen."

  • "What am I going to do when my kid thinks that this is the right thing to do and I'm, like, 'No, it's not,'" she said.

Billie Eilish recently opened up about her desire to become a mother.

During a recent interview with the British newspaper The Times, Eilish said she would "rather die" than not have children, adding, "I need them."

However, she also said she "dreads" the challenges of parenthood.

"The older I get, the more I experience things, I just think, 'Ugh, what am I going to do when my kid thinks that this is the right thing to do and I'm, like, "No, it's not!"' And they won't listen to me," she said.

The 20-year-old singer also said it's a "scary" time to be young in the US, particularly in the aftermath of the Uvalde school shooting.

"Why is it OK to be scared to go to school?" she said. "You go to school and be prepared for a life-changing traumatic experience or dying. What? Who? Where is the logic there?"

Eilish previously voiced her support for stricter gun control in 2019 after two deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

She is also an outspoken advocate for reproductive rights and climate change legislation.
