Billie Eilish is her own harshest critic. The "Bad Guy" singer performed a version of the Beatles classic "Yesterday" during the In Memoriam segment of the Academy Awards, and she was not a fan of her work.

Eilish said she "bombed that performance" because she was too nervous and went on to say "that shit was trash" in an interview with Apple's "New Music Day.

"The Oscars is not my, um, people, like, you know what I mean, like, it's not... I'm not used to that," Eilish said. "At least the Grammys wasn't as scary because it was, like, artists ... and it felt like my people. It felt like, 'Oh look, a bunch of artists,' and I knew a lot of them already and I’d met them and they knew of me.

"The Oscars, I'm like, these are movie stars," Eilish continued. "Totally different, the show is so scary ... it was so scary."

The highlight of the show was when Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor for his performance in Joker and then gave an amazing speech.

"I think that we've become very disconnected from the natural world and many of us, what we’re guilty of is an egocentric world view — the belief that we’re the center of the universe," the actor said as part of his speech. "We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow, and when she gives birth we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal."

"I think we fear the idea of personal change because we think that we have to sacrifice something to give something up," Phoenix said later in his speech. "But human beings, at our best, are so inventive and creative and ingenious, and I think that when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles, we can create, develop and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and to the environment.

"I think that's when we're at our best, when we support each other, not when we cancel each other out for past mistakes, but when we help each other to grow, when we educate each other, when we guide each other toward redemption. That is the best of community," he continued. "When he was 17, my brother wrote this lyric. It said, 'Run to the rescue with love, and peace will follow.'"
