When Billie Eilish‘s Where Do We Go World Tour kicked off back in March, fans were left seriously shook when a video interlude that was played during her concerts showed the singer taking off her clothes in an attempt to put an end to bodyshaming once and for all. Now, the 18-year-old has finally shared that video to YouTube, and fans are living for it.
In the clip, the “Bad Guy” songstress could be seen stripping down as she said, “You have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body. Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching always and nothing I do goes unseen. So while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them I’d never be able to move. Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulder provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with is not what you wanted? If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut.”
As fans know, what Billie wears has become the topic of conversation over the last few months. The musician has been pretty open about the fact that she chooses to wear oversized clothing so that people can’t sexualize her body.
“Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it,” she continued in the powerful video. “Why? We make assumptions about people based on their size. We decide who they are, we decide what they’re worth. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
Previously, during a Calvin Klein ad back in 2019, the brunette. beauty opened up about why she likes to wear baggy clothing.
“I never want the world to know everything about me,” she said. “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? Nobody can be like, ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she’s got a flat [butt], she’s got a fat [butt].’ No one can say any of that, because they don’t know.”
