The Bad Guy singer has become well-known for her signature style of baggy ensembles.
She told GQ magazine: “ I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them.”
“And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody. So I dress the way I dress as I don’t like to think of you guys – I mean anyone, everyone – judging it, or the size of it.
“But that went away pretty fast; no idea why. Since then I’ve never felt comfortable looking like other people.”
“But that doesn’t mean that I won’t wake up one day and decide to wear a tank top, which I have done before.
“Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created, because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman.
“I have never felt powerful in a relationship. I did once and, guess what, I took advantage of that person’s kindness. I wasn’t used to it.
“It’s been months and I am not attracted to people anymore. I don’t know what’s going on … It’s actually kind of dope.”
Billie Eilish’s hit song, ‘Bad Guy’, has been reworked through new audio technology and transformed with the medium of 8D music.
With brooding electronic music playing in the background, the film sees Eilish strip off to her bra before sinking into water, narrated by Eilish who provides a strong message against body shaming.
“The body I was born with – is it not what you wanted?” she asks.
“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.
While millions of people are forced to remain home amid strict social distancing measures, the idea of live music feels like a distant memory. In a bid to indulge music in a different form, a new online phenomenon is sweeping the world of music as ‘8D audio’ offers a completely unique take on the sonic experience. Shifting the sound from left to right and back again, 8D music allows the listening to submerge themselves deeper into the sound of the material.
