Earlier this week, Billie Eilish opened up in an interview with Vanity Fair about body image.
When Billie Eilish was in her preteen years, she would take weight loss pills, and would starve herself a lot of the time. In the interview the teen star says,
“I remember taking a pill that told me that it would make me lose weight and it only made me pee the bed – when I was 12. It’s just crazy. I can’t even believe, like I – wow. Yeah.”
She also explains to Vanity Fair that her hating her body was the main reason for her cutting herself. Billie Eilish admits that none of her boyfriends ever made her feel desired, and this made her grow very insecure.
Her insecurities of body image is what led to the baggy street style she is known for wearing now. She said that she wanted to create and wear a style that would hide her body. Billie comments on how the photos taken of her in October of 2020 in a tank top and shorts broke the internet. This was the first ever revealing photo taken of Billie Eilish where she was not wearing her usual baggy streetwear outfits, and apparently she got a lot of hate for this. In response to the hate, Billie Eilish shared a tik tok by Chizi Duru, stating that
"All women’s bodies are not these photoshopped things we see on instagram"
She said this will not hold her back from wearing revealing clothes again, and we know she will work it just like she works any outfit!
