Singer Billie Eilish won’t put up with any internet nonsense from trolls. Eilish responded to a number of recent remarks that fans made about her pictures. She defended her decision to show herself the way she wants to, addressing people who claim she has “changed” and are calling her a “sellout,” according to Billboard.
She wrote in an Instagram Story: “letter to some comments I be seeing sometimes. I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely OBLITERATED by you fools for being boyish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman (sic).”
She continued: “And now when I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I CHANGED and am a sellout.. and ‘what happened to her’ oMg iT’s nOt thE sAmE biLlie she’s just like the rest bla blaha you guys are true idiots. LOL. I can be BOTH you f-ing bozos. LET WOMEN EXIST!(sic).”

The Grammy-winning artist Eilish has long been the focus of discussion regarding her clothing choices. 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?
The singer wore a more feminine outfit to the 2023 Met Gala earlier this month, donning a Simone Rocha-designed black lace gown.
In a 2021 interview with Marie Claire, Eilish acknowledged that her choice to diversify her wardrobe had an effect on her following base. “I lost 100,000 followers, just because of the boobs,” she claimed.
This past weekend, Eilish began to respond to her haters on Instagram, stating, “Did you know that women are multifaceted? Shocking right? Believe it or not, women can be interested in multiple things.”
“Also that femininity does not equal weakness,” she said, adding, “totally unheard of and insane to want to express yourself differently at different times.”
She split up with Jesse Rutherford earlier this month, after dating him for seven months. Recently, she also publicly debuted a brief cover of Drake’s song “Hotline Bling.”
