Billie Eilish Responds To Bikini Body Shamers In Recent Interview

""If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it."

Billie Eilish’s look is very unique. For a pop-singer of her age she certainly breaks the mould in terms of style. Defying norms of wearing revealing and figure hugging clothing the Bad Guy singer prefers a baggy oversized look.

There has been lots written about how the star dresses, with many people disliking her oversized silhouette. She has previously opened up about this criticism at a live show in Miami last year saying;

Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips?

The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?

If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut.”

In a recent interview with Dazed she elaborated on this more, as she had received tonnes of criticism after she posted a picture of her in a bikini (just from the shoulders up) in January when she was on holidays.

The public seeing her in something other than a baggy shirt sparked conversations online with comments like; “I don’t like her any more because as soon as she turns 18 she’s a whore.”

“Like, dude. I can’t win” was Billie’s response.

She went on to say that; “There was a point last year where I was naked and I didn’t recognise my body ‘cos I hadn’t seen it in a while,” and that “I would see it sometimes and be like, “Whose body is that?'”

Billie also went to talk about the fact that she is thinking about changing up her look, but that she knows this will come with backlash;

“If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it, people would be like, ‘You’ve changed, how dare you do what you’ve always rebelled against?’ I’m like, ‘I’m not rebelling against anything, really.’ I can’t stress it enough. I’m just wearing what I wanna wear.”
