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 b**bs’ was trending on every major platform from Twitter to Google. Eilish told Elle in an interview, “My b**bs were trending on Twitter!” “At number one! What is that?! Every outlet wrote about my b**bs!”
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 fcuking b**bs, bro”. She adds “I was born with DNA that was gonna give me big-ass b**bs.”
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:
“When I dress comfortably, I face judgment. If I show skin, I’m called a slut. Some hate my clothes, others admire them. Some use clothing to shame others, some use it to shame me. Despite feeling your stares and disapproval, I won’t let them hinder me.”
“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 b**bs’ is yet again a trending topic. Who else can say their b**bs 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!
