Billie Eilish has made her stance on showing off her body pretty clear - something she expresses through her unique fashion sense.
Although it seems this week, the singer has decided to show some skin - posting a powerful spoken word video in which she reveals her body.
She's conveying such an important message. Keep scrolling to watch the video...
Aged just eighteen, Billie Eilish has taken the music industry by storm.She's been writing and creating her own music since she was incredibly young, and has risen to fame with huge hit album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? that was released in March, 2019.
She's known for being somewhat of a quirky character...Billie was home-schooled, so she didn't get the chance to interact with others of her own age apart from her siblings until she started to make waves in the music scene, which has given her something of a unique outlook on the world.
It also gives her music a different sound...Many are pretty shocked that such a young person could create such hauntingly catchy tunes - and such suggestive lyrics.
Her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, ranked at number 1 on the charts.Most artists have to release a couple of albums and dedicate their lives to promoting their work before they are even recognized as an artist, but then there’s a lucky few, like Billie, who reach superstardom on their first attempt. When the album was released, she wrote, “This album [means] the world to me please take care of it."
But that wasn't even the first time that we saw her climbing the charts...Her introductory EP, Don’t Smile at Me, went all the way to slot fourteen, and has already been awarded gold, an achievement that many artists can only dream of receiving.
Her most recent single Everything I Wanted has been a huge success...And we must say, it is an incredibly beautiful song.
But, it's safe to say, Billie is as famous for her image as she is for her music...She doesn't dress like your typical eighteen-year-old-girl, that's for sure.
She is known for rocking some pretty out-there looks...
Or what about this full green ensemble?
And Billie doesn't just experiment with fashion...
She donned silver hair for some time...If anything, it was this look that became her trademark around 2017.
But more recently, she has been rocking something very eye-popping...
But it turns out that there's a reason behind Billie's quirky look...Her choices in fashion - which strongly consist of baggy, oversized clothes - are picked to protect herself from her global audience body-shaming her and judging her on her natural appearance.
Speaking in an interview last year, Billie explained these choices..."That’s why I wear baggy clothes," she said. "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat a**,’ ‘she’s got a fat a**.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know."
And we honestly don't blame Billie for having this attitude.But sadly, people have already attempted to exploit and body-shame the teenager. Even when she was as young as fifteen, online trolls were trying to sexualize her for no apparent reason.
It's terribly sad that the singer has to put up with this treatment...And it is a harsh reality that young women in the spotlight are always targeted by older people.
Many of these perverts have tried to blame her lyrics.
