First, people threw rocks at Billie Eilish for wearing baggy tracksuits. Then she shared pictures of boobs and snakes, and she lost around 100K followers.
The singer was cool about it, in fact, she was even joyful, as she told Elle magazine:
"My boobs were trending on Twitter! At number one! What is that?! Every outlet wrote about my boobs!"
The case of Billie Eilish and boobs
The 19-year-old musician took part in the viral challenge where Instagram users ask their followers what photos they'd like to see. Someone asked Eilish to post 'a drawing you're really proud of, and she did.
She shared a weird drawing of female bodies, including boobs, snakes, and one butt. She simply wrote on her Instagram story:
"These probably lol I love boobs."
One fan was quick to notice that Billie is losing fans and posted screenshots as proof.
The teen music sensation was amused as she shared the fan's photo and captioned it:
"LMFAOOO. Y'all babies. SMH."
Stop teasing Eilish
Earlier, she did an Instagram live and threatened that there wouldn't be a new record until people stop teasing her about her hair.
She giggled and said:
"Stop making fun of me - my God.
"I am making you a f****** album.
I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair. Shut up."
Telling people to 'shut up,' isn't nice, but she's a teenager, so let's show some sympathy to this young woman.
It's fascinating that Billie lost 100K followers due to some drawings of the boobs.
Just a few years ago, people were begging Instagram to stop banning women's nipples from photos. That never happened, and if you accidentally post a beach photo and your nipple's showing, you might end up suspended.
Or, like in the case of the young musicians, people might unfollow you.
Eilish was trashed for wearing baggy designer clothes. Then, she showed some skin, and people acted as if she took their bodies, not 'parading' her own.
We can pretend to be progressive, but burning bras in the 70s is as far as we went when it came to female sexuality.
The World's A Little Blurry
Billie's documentary for Apple TV is coming out in February. The World's A Little Blurry will offer fans behind the scenes as the teen singer recorded the 'album that changed her life.'
According to the official synopsis:
"From award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler, the documentary offers a deeply intimate look at this extraordinary teenager's journey, at just seventeen years old, navigating life on the road, on stage, and at home with her family, while writing, recording, and releasing her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?"
We will watch it, not because we are thirsty for another documentary about an album. We want to support young talents, especially those who face scrutiny no matter what they do.
