Unlike most of her pop-star peers, Billie Eilish is known for wearing oversized T-shirts and baggy jeans.
That’s why fans were amazed to see the modest five-time 18-year-old Grammy winner take off her shirt at a concert in Miami Monday night (local time).
According to the New York Post, the teenage superstar released a video to the big screen in which she stripped down to her bra, apparently making a bold statement about the pressures young women face in the music industry – and the physical shame in accompanying line.
His moody monologue took place on an instrumental ambient piece, with Eilish dressed in his ample style before undressing.
Fan images posted on Twitter feature Eonish singing, “If I’m wearing what’s comfortable, I’m not a woman. If I lose the diapers, I’m a damn. Although you have never seen my body, you still judge it and you judge me for it. Why? We make assumptions about people based on their size.
“We decide who they are, we decide what they are worth. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what makes me? What does that mean? Is my value based only on your perception? “Or isn’t your opinion on me my responsibility?”
At the end of the clip, the Eilish is shown taking off a tight black tank top, exposing her black bra and long jet black nails.
A frightened fan can be heard shouting, “What is f ** k ?! No way shit! “as the crowd roared in response to the revealing moment.
Eilish openly declared that she felt “very hated” by the public in the midst of her huge success, but it turned out that she is optimistic about regaining control of her image despite criticism from online trolls .
At one point in the concert, the Miami New Times reported, the singer announced: “I need water.”
After taking a sip, she playfully squirted the rest of the bottle on her overheated fans.
PERFORMANCE OF BILLIE EILISH SPOKEN WORDS
“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 make me ashamed, but I feel you look – always – and nothing like that that I do goes unnoticed.
So while I feel your looks, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived next to them, I could never move.
Do you want me to be smaller?
Do you want me to shut up?
Are my shoulders provoking you?
Does my chest?
Am i my stomach
The body I was born with, isn’t that what you wanted?
If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I lose the diapers, I’m a slut.
Although you have never seen my body, you still judge it and you judge me for it.
We make assumptions about people based on their size.
We decide who they are, we decide their value. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what makes me? What does that mean?
Is my value based solely on your perception?
Or is your opinion about me not my responsibility?
