    When asked about which criticisms of her music annoy her, Billie admitted: "The ones that annoy me are the ones that are really true. Like, my voice is really soft and it's not belt-y and shit."

    "People think that I whisper in all of my songs. I do in a couple of songs. But, I feel like people just say that when they've heard one fucking song. Like, listen to 'Wish You Were Gay'. A bitch belting," she said.

    "And like, my belt is not even close to a fucking Adele belt. Adele is like a literal God," she added, praising the vocal legend.

    "But, it's just different. You don't have to be shouting to be good at singing," she concluded.
