The 'bad guy' singer spoke about her choice of clothing during a Calvin Klein campaign, opening up about her insecurities and saying it's a conscious decision to not show people her body.
Billie Eilish has been applauded for calling out body shamers as she kicks off her world tour in Miami, but this isn't the first time the 'Bad Guy' singer spoken out about her choice to dress in baggy clothing.
The multi-GRAMMY winner took part in Calvin Klein's 'I Speak My Truth In #MyCalvins' campaign in 2019, explaining her decision to never show her figure to the world to stop anyone knowing, or indeed, body shaming her.
The 18-year-old singer said "That’s why I wear baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath."
She continued to say "Nobody can be like, "she's slim-thick, she's not slim-thick, she's got a flat ass, she's got a fat ass."
Billie stars alongside the likes of Shawn Mendes and Kendall Jenner as they bare their insecurities and tell their own stories.
The 'Bury A Friend' star received praise for being so outspoken about her choice, and many of her followers have questioned the sad state that she even feels she has to wear baggy clothes for that reason.
In an interlude in her performance, Billie undressed to a vest, then to a bra, delivering a powerful spoken message whilst doing so that fans and celebs globally have praised.
She said: ""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."
"Always, and nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares; your disapproval, or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move."
