Billie’s extreme fame has always left her to be singled out by critics on the internet, however.

Earlier on in the BBC documentary, the singer spoke candidly about dealing with these trolls.

She said: “The people that even say the crazy stuff… they don’t even think you’ll see it.

“They would never say that to you in real life!”

Feeling exasperated, Billie went on: “It’s just like… what is the point in trying to do good if people are going to keep saying that you’re doing wrong?

“Like, I try so hard to do good for the world and good for people. Please, tell me how that works?”

Later she added: “It’s weird to be under a microscope.”

Happier Than Ever is out now.
