Billie Eilish Fires Back

Written by on March 10, 2020

While she’s known for covering herself in oversized T-shirts and baggy pants, pop star Billie Eilish, 18, is now firing back at body shamers, by stripping down, baring her skin. The five-time Grammy-winning artist left fans stunned after she began peeling off her clothing at Monday night’s (Mar 9) show in Miami. In a clip surfaced, Billie’s seen undressing on the big screen, as a monologue plays over the speakers, featuring a bold statement about the pressures young women face in the music industry, plus the online body shaming that’s coupled with it. She’s heard stating, “If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why? We make assumptions about people based on their size. We decide who they are, we decide what they’re worth. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
