Billie Eilish is POed… and never make a 17-year-old girl mad!
Nylon Germany recently came under fire when Billie Eilish called them out for photoshopping her topless.
The 17-year-old singer was featured on Nylon Germany magazine’s cover highlighting “digital prodigies.”
The image debuted on Instagram with both a picture as well as a motion poster of the same snap.
However, the singer was not happy with the magazine for using her image without her permission and doctoring it so heavily as well.
“what the f— is this s—,” the upset star began her lengthy comment on Instagram. “1. i was never approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team. 2. this is not even a real picture of me. i had absolutely no creative input. 3. youre gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? thats not real?? at 17? and make it the cover???? even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… i did not consent in any way. 4. ANNNDDD YOU’RE GONNA REMOVE ALL MY F—IN HAIR? booooooooooo to you.”
After Eilish’s comment, Nylon Germany edited its original post — which has remained online — with an apology of sorts:
“For this cover, it was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie Eilish. It was only ever our intention to honor Billies impact and her work by creating this avatar which is part of a cover series highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists. This avatar is a piece of 3D artwork created in dedication to her achievements and the positive effect she has had on millions around the globe — including us.”
