Speaking to Variety about the comments she gets about her body, Billie said: "I’ve had big boobs since I was nine years old, and that’s just the way I am. That’s how I look. You wear something that’s at all revealing, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, but you didn’t want people to sexualise you?’ You can suck my ass! I’m literally a being that is sexual sometimes. Fuck you!"

Billie then argued that men aren't body-shamed like women. She said: "Nobody ever says a thing about men’s bodies. If you’re muscular, cool. If you're not, cool. If you’re rail thin, cool. If you have a dad bod, cool. If you’re pudgy, love it! Everybody's happy with it. You know why? Because girls are nice."

Billie also said: "Being a woman is just such a war, forever. Especially being a young woman in the public eye. It’s really unfair."

Elsewhere, Billie opened up about feeling uncomfortable in her skin as a woman. She said: "I’ve never felt like a woman, to be honest with you. I’ve never felt desirable. I’ve never felt feminine. I have to convince myself that I’m, like, a pretty girl. I identify as ‘she/her’ and things like that, but I’ve never really felt like a girl."
