Billie Eilish has a perfect response for slut-shamers

0 535

Before everything got canceled, Billie Eilish was just starting her tour. On the first show, she undressed to hit back on the body-shamers. While it made all of us love her even more, there were some people who could not stop body shaming her. Those people criticized her for showing the undressing task on stage. Even though the 18-year-old is famous for wearing baggy clothes. However, she can wear whatever she want just like any other 18-year-old girl. And she has another perfect response for all the body-shamers.

Billie Eilish opens up about criticism

In the Spring/Summer edition of Dazed, Billie Eilish opened up about the criticism she received on her dressing. In January 2020, she posted a video of herself in a bathing suit and received a comment:

It was trending. There were comments like, ‘I don’t like her any more because as soon as she turns 18 she’s a whore.’ Like, dude. I can’t win. I can-not win.

Billie Eilish admits there was a time when she could not recognize her body anymore. However, she is more “okay” with her body now, not that she loves it. But Billie does not like people criticizing her every move. People would still pass judgement on it.

People would be like, ‘You’ve changed, how dare you do what you’ve always rebelled against?’ I’m like, ‘I’m not rebelling against anything, really.’ I can’t stress it enough. I’m just wearing what I wanna wear. If there’s a day when I’m like, ‘You know what, I feel comfortable with my belly right now, and I wanna show my belly,’ I should be allowed to do that.

*Mic drop*.

Clapping back at slut-shamers

This is not the first time Billie Eilish is clapping back at the body-shamers. Even before her Dazed interview, and the undressing clip at her tour’s first show, Billie has done it last year.

When talking to Elle, she talked about all the mixed reviews people give her on her dressing style. The feminists believe she is desexualizing herself. Parents love her because Billie covering herself with baggy clothes leads to their daughter wearing baggy clothes.

The point is not: Hey, let’s go slut-shame all these girls for not dressing like Billie Eilish. It makes me mad. I have to wear a big shirt for you not to feel uncomfortable about my b##bs.

Billie Eilish told Elle magazine in the interview that her natural body is due to her DNA. And that’s the main reason why she chose to wear baggy clothes. Covering her upper body keeps her safe from all the people who have an issue with heavy breasts. Billie was just 17 at the time of interview with Elle, and she gave an example to highlight how people will still treat her even after she’d turn 18.

I was recently FaceTiming a close friend of mine who’s a dude, and I was wearing a tank top. He was like, ‘Ugh, put a shirt on!’ And I said, ‘I have a shirt on.’ Someone with smaller boobs could wear a tank top, and I could put on that exact tank top and get slut-shamed because my b##bs are big. That is stupid. It’s the same shirt!

And she was not wrong about it. A comment that got stuck in her head was: “Tomboys always end up being the biggest whores”. 

She is not a kid anymore. She is a 18-year-old and she must be treated like that.
