Billie Eilish has always been known to go against the curve since she came into the spotlight last year. Aside from her musical talent, her fashion choices have made her a style icon in the industry. Unlike most of her celeb peers, she shy’s away from tight clothing and is almost always seen in a baggy, oversized dress.
Last September, a photo of Eilish in a tank top went viral and the entire internet lost its chill. Suddenly, ‘Billie Eilish boobs’ was trending on every major platform from Twitter to Google. Eilish told Elle in an interview, “My boobs were trending on Twitter!” “At number one! What is that?! Every outlet wrote about my boobs!”
She went on to explain that her body has always been an issue and it’s mostly why she chooses to cover up. “I look good in it (the photo). I was born with fucking boobs, bro”. She adds “I was born with DNA that was gonna give me big-ass boobs.”
Billie Eilish, who turned 18 in December, is now taking a stance on body shaming within the industry.
During a concert Monday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, the Bad Guy singer shocked fans with a bold statement.
A video of Eilish stripping down to just her bra broadcasted on a large screen. Obviously, a move that no one in the crowd was expecting. Eilish’s voice narrated the provocative clip:
“If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me. While I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sighs of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move.
“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. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?”

Furthermore, when the New York Post tried to reach Eilish for comment, her representative said: “No further comment. I think the video says it all.”
So, once again the internet is losing its chill and ‘Billie Eilish boobs’ is yet again a trending topic. Who else can say their boobs were a top trending topic online, not once but twice!?
All jokes aside, shoutout to Billie Eilish for confronting sexism and body-shaming at just 18-years-old, we respect it!
