Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, the American singer cum songwriter revealed her struggles with her body. Notably, she claimed that she is extremely unhappy with her body and the way she is struggling with her insecurities.
The singer is best known for her loose-fitted costumes replacing the trend of sexy and skin-fitted glamours costumes. In an interview with ‘The Guardian,’ Eilish opened up her body- image and confidence and also shared the reasons for her dissatisfaction due to her outward appearance.
Bellie was discussing her song, ‘Overheated,’ on her new album and clarified that the track is to note the people who promote unattainable beauty standards.
The singer said, “It’s completely fine to get work done – do this, do that, do what makes you feel happy. It’s just when you deny it and say, ‘Oh, I got this all on my own, and if you just tried harder, you could get it.’ That makes me literally furious. It is so bad for young women – and boys, too – to see that.”
Also, she detailed her own experience and clarified, “I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked. And immediately I am like, ‘oh my God, how do they look like that?’ I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks really can be fake. Yet I still see it and go, oh God, that makes me feel really bad.”
Also, she said, “I’m very confident in who I am, and I’m very happy with my life…I’m obviously not happy with my body, but who is?”
In order to keep herself away from the negativity due to the odd opinions of the audiences, she dresses mostly in baggy and loose-fitted costumes.
Eilish noted, “When I’m on stage, I have to disassociate from the ideas I have of my body. Because I wear clothes that are bigger and easier to move in without showing everything – they can be really unflattering. In pictures, they look like I don’t even know what.”
She also stated, “I just completely separate the two. Because I have such a terrible relationship with my body like you would not believe, so I just have to disassociate.”
