Billie Eilish has just sent a strong message to the most recent troll who has commented on her body.
Billie Eilish shared a video about the dangers of shaming the body after being unfairly criticized online for her choice of clothes and body shape last week. The 18-year-old singer was recently photographed on a walk in Los Angeles dressed in a beige top and matching shorts. In case you didn’t know, users of social networks shared Billie’s photo, with a caption embarrassing the singer for her body, the photo provoked a big reaction online.
Earlier this week, the singer apparently reacted to criticism about her appearance on her Instagram stories, sharing a video of her passing through her numerous awards. She also shared a video posted by TikTok user Chizi Duru discussing the importance of normalizing bodies, reports The Independent.
Eilish posted a photo of herself in a tank top shortly after with the caption “Do you really want to go back in time?” shortly afterwards she deleted the caption.
The 18-year-old artist has often talked about her experience of feeling ashamed of her body. Last year, she told Elle to wear baggy clothes because “it kind of doesn’t give anyone the opportunity to judge what your body looks like.” Then, in March, Eilish released a short film entitled Not My Responsibility, in which she undressed and submerged herself in black water à la Under the Skin to make a powerful voice.
“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it,” she said. “Some people use it to embarrass others, some people use it to embarrass me. But I feel you looking, always. And nothing I do goes unnoticed. If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I take the layers off, I’m a slut. Although you have never seen my body, you still judge and judge me for it … Would you like me to be a minor? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders tease you? “
