Billie Eilish responded to online comments criticizing her for wearing feminine/women-looking clothes. She also said she lost 100k followers after the new change in dressing.
“I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely obliterated by you fools for being boy-ish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman,” Eilish wrote. “And now when I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I changed and am a sellout.”
“I can be both,” she added, addressing the “true idiots” and “bozos” who have commented on her style. “Let women exist!”
Billie Eilish followed up with more postings.
“FUN FACT! did you know that woman are multifaceted!!!!!??? shocking right?? believe it or not women could be interested in multiple things,” she wrote.
“Also that femininity does not equal weakness???!!!! omg?! insane right? who knew,” she added. “And also totally unheard of and insane to want to express yourself differently at different times.”
Billie Eilish has long been the subject of conversation around her style of dress. In 2019, the then-17-year-old singer discussed her clothing choices in an ad for Calvin Klein, saying, “I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know?”
Earlier this month, the now-21-year-old singer, wore a more feminine look at the 2023 Met Gala — a black lace gown custom-made by Simone Rocha.
Eilish told Elle magazine that she lost 100,000 social media followers after she shared a different look.
