She told Australian Vogue magazine: “It’s really weird how the world can see and remember every aspect of your life. [it]… This is so strange.
“The internet picks up things from everyone’s past, and I’m like,“ Don’t you realize that everyone is incredibly embarrassed and ashamed of their past? “
“Like, you don’t think that maybe you are ashamed of your past, so maybe everyone else is also ashamed?”
The So I Am singer has changed her mind on many of her previous comments, and she finds it “odd” that everything she has ever said in public is so easily accessible.
She added, “Then I said so many things that I totally disagree with now or think otherwise.

Billy had previously apologized after the old video was leaked.
In a lengthy statement, she wrote on her Instagram story: “I love you guys and many of you have asked me to solve this problem. And this is what I WANT to refer to because I am being labeled as not.

“I am shocked and confused, and I want to say that I have ever said this word.
“This song was the only time I have ever heard this word because no one in my family has ever used it around me.
“Regardless of my ignorance and age at the time, nothing excuses the fact that it hurt. And for that I am very sorry. “
