Out now, Billie Eilish’s short film on body-shaming is available on YouTube. The film, which premiered during her Miami concert in March 2020, sees Billie in a completely dark space slowly taking parts of clothing off as her voiceover slowly questions you about the problems of body shaming.
In her 2019 Calvin Klein ad, she spoke about her conscious decision to wear baggy clothes. “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat a*s,’ ‘she’s got a fat a*s.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”
In the end, she completely submerges in a tar-like liquid while asking: “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?”
