It's no wonder Billie took home top honors with five Grammy wins, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. And right before Billie went on to become the first woman to win all four major categories she spoke with Billboard about what a wild ride her life had been up until that time.

"It's crazy to be on the other side, which is something I never would have expected in my life," she marveled. "It feels like I'm in a movie right now, or it feels like I was let in by accident.

That's, like, the vibe I got. I'm like, wow, I'm not meant to be here. This is like, 'No one wants me here.' That's how I feel. But I am so grateful to be here."

Billie may be living out her dreams now however there was a time not too long ago when she wasn't in the best place. Recently she's been constantly checking haters for their comments about her friendship with the Champagne Papi Drake, which she's always let people know that the two of them are just friends.

However, in an interview with Vogue (via Perez Hilton)Billie got very candid about her fears of suffering a breakdown reminiscent of the one Britney Spears experienced during the height of her career, which still seems to have a few long lasting effects.

“As a fan growing up, I was always like, ‘What the f--k is wrong with them?’ All the scandals. The Britney moment. You grow up thinking they’re pretty and they’re skinny; why would they f--k it up? But the bigger I get, the more I’m like, Oh my God, of course they had to do that.

In my dark places I’ve worried that I was going to become the stereotype that everybody thinks every young artist becomes, because how can they not? Last year, when I was at my lowest point during the tour in Europe, I was worried I was going to have a breakdown and shave my head.”

It seems like Billie is still growing as an artist and learning the nuances of celebrity as she continues to climb the charts towards superstardom and success.
