In March of this year, 18-year-old singer Billy Eilish was scheduled to go on a Where Do We Go world tour. For him, the star also prepared a special video – his response to body shamers and all the critics, which was to be broadcast during concerts. But, alas, only spectators from several performances could see it – because of the coronavirus pandemic, the tour had to be postponed.
But Billy decided to present his video to the general public, without waiting for new concerts. Yesterday hit hit artist Bad Guy and a new title song from Bond shared a video on their social media.
During the three-minute video, Eilish slowly undresses, talking about the enemies.
You have an opinion on my music, my clothes, my body. Some people hate the things I wear. Some, on the contrary, praise my style of dress. Some use it to shame others, others shame me. But I feel that everything I do does not go unnoticed. I feel your opinions, your disapproval or your encouragement. Do you want me to be thinner? Weaker? Softer? Higher? Do you want to see my chest, my belly, my hips? Isn’t it what you wanted to see the body with which I was born?
– the monologue of the singer’s sounds.
Remember that loose clothing has become Billy’s signature style. According to her confession, she chose this image precisely so that people do not discuss her figure, but pay more attention to creativity, but the effect turned out to be opposite.
If I wear something comfortable, then they call me feminine. If I undress, they call me a whore right away. You never saw my body, but you still judge me. Why? You draw conclusions about a person based on the size of their clothes. Is my own value based solely on your perception? Or is your opinion about me not my responsibility?
– Billy concludes his speech.
At the end of the video, the singer’s clothes are almost completely released, but she still does not show her whole body – it is hidden by the water.
In less than a day, the video garnered nearly three million views on YouTube and entered the top 10 of the hottest videos on the platform, and in the comments, many supported the singer for her courage.
Billy is so beautiful, and if other people don’t like the way she dresses, then that’s their problem. I don’t like the way my mom dresses, but I don’t hold it against her. Some people are idiots. I think Billy is a very strong personality and should be proud of what she has accomplished. And although some people behave badly, there are many more people who support it,
– wrote one of Billy’s fans.
Many subscribers also thanked Ailish for raising this topic and serving as an example to those who suffer from similar shame in their environment.
Talk about it more often and louder! It is so important to hear these words!
– asked the singer one of the commentators.
