Billie Eilish Says Positive Comments About Her Style Slut-Shame Others

Billie Eilish just became the first artist born in the 21st century to have a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 [with Bad Guy dethroning Lil Nas X's Old Town Road after its record breaking 19 week streak], and now she's been revealed as the cover star of V magazine's 20th anniversary issue.

 
 

Eilish was interviewed by legendary artist and producer Pharrell Williams, who talked to her in part about her personal style. The 17-year-old icon has previously mentioned that she likes to wear clothes "800 times bigger" than she is in order to be more mysterious, but clarifies in this piece that her comments have been misconstrued.

"It’s more, just, I wear what I want to wear," she said. "But of course, everyone sees it as, 'She’s saying no to being sexualized,' and, 'She’s saying no to being the stereotypical female.' ... [The] positive [comments] about how I dress have this slut-shaming element. Like, 'I am so glad that you are dressing like a boy, so that 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," Billie concluded.

She then went on to say that she supports everyone just showing whatever they want.
