“The iHeart Living Room Concert for America” on Fox featured Mariah Carey, Billie Eilish and other home artists. Elton John hosted the performance.
Billie Eilish opens up on the judgment she faces on her appearance.
The 18-year-old, who usually wears loose-fitting clothing to keep her body out of the spotlight, spoke to Dazed Magazine about the reactions she received when she deviated from her usual style.
Eilish recalled a viral photo of her in a white tank top from June 2019. The photo caught the eye of trolls commenting on Eilish’s fitted cut and body.
“I’ve seen comments like,” How dare she talk about not wanting (to be sexualized) and wearing that ?! “”
She also spoke about the attention she received in January when she posted photos and videos of her on Instagram in a swimsuit.
“It was trendy,” she said. “There were comments like,” I don’t like her anymore because as soon as she’s 18, she’s a whore. “Like, man. I cannot win. I cannot win. “
In a May 2019 announcement for Calvin Klein, the “bad guy” singer revealed that she purposely wore big clothes to keep others from shaming her.
Eilish also explained to Dazed how she too had avoided looking at herself.
“There was a time last year when I was naked and I didn’t (recognize) my body because I hadn’t seen it for a while,” she said. “I saw him sometimes and I said to myself:” Whose body is this? “”
She added, “It’s not that I like (my body) now, I just think I agree a little more with that. “

Although she is often seen as a rebel, Eilish says her style is not meant to be a backlash against anything – she just wears what she wants to wear.
But the world doesn’t always see it that way.
“If I wore a dress to something, I would be hated for it,” she said. “People would say,” You have changed, how dare you do what you have always rebelled against? “I say to myself:” I am not rebelling against anything, really “. I just wear what I want to wear. If there is a day when I say to myself, “You know what, I’m feeling good with my belly right now, and I want to show my belly”, I should be allowed to do it. ”
