The "Bad Guy" hitmaker was shocked to discover how terribly Britney had been treated over the years by members of the media, the public, and even her own team after tuning into the 2020 New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears", and Eilish knows she's been lucky to avoid such pitfalls to date.
Speaking to Vogue Australia, she said, "It's really, really horrible what a lot of young women have gone through - I mean, to this day."
"I didn't have a team that wanted to f**k me over - which is really kind of rare, which [itself] is pretty f**ked up. All I have to be is just grateful that I happened to have a good group of people around me that... didn't want to just take advantage of me and do what people have done in the past."
Britney is currently fighting to end her 13-year conservatorship, which was put in place in 2008 following her highly-publicized mental breakdown, and has accused her conservators, including her father Jamie Spears, of subjecting her to years of "abuse" under the legal arrangement.
Meanwhile, since rising to fame, Eilish has received key pieces of advice from her music idols, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Mel C (Melanie C) of the Spice Girls, but she's still starstruck whenever that occurs.
"I feel like when something like that happens, your body kind of goes into shock and you can't really actually look at it," she shared, admitting she wishes she was able to "take it in more."
"I think about it all the time because people that are like, global idols say these things to me and about me that are the most crazy s**t I've ever heard! I don't know how to process it or believe it, you know, it doesn't feel real to me."
"When people say, 'Live in the moment,' it's really hard... I feel like whenever I have tried to make it a point to be in the moment, all I'm thinking about is if I'm in the moment or not."
