BILLIE EILISH: I Wear What I Like

Billie Eilish thinks that that people complimenting her fashion choices of baggy clothes are really criticizing the way women dress.
In an interview she did with Pharrell Williams for V magazine, Eilish said, “The positive comments about how I dress have this slut-shaming element. Like, ‘I am so glad that you’re dressing like a boy, so other girls can dress like boys, so that they aren’t sluts’. That’s basically what it sounds like to me. And I can’t overstate how strongly I do not appreciate that, at all.”
Eilish added, “The way I dress is very not necessarily feminine or girly, or whatever. I don’t say, ‘Oh, I am going to wear baggy clothes because it’s baggy clothes’, it’s never like that. I wear what I want to wear.”
