Billie Eilish recently revealed that she lost 100k followers on Instagram after a picture of herself wearing a corset on Vouge’s cover was published.
“PEOPLE HOLD ON TO THESE MEMORIES AND HAVE AN ATTACHMENT,” SHE SAID OF HER FORMER BAGGY STYLE.
“BUT IT’S VERY DEHUMANISING.
“I LOST 100,000 FOLLOWERS JUST BECAUSE OF THE BOOBS. PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF BIG BOOBS.
Eilish said that she longer wants to have bright hair because it makes her stand out. She dyed her hair blonde so she could blend into the public.
Billie Eilish has been one of the most popular teenager singers/ songwriters in the world with 97 million followers on Instagram. She is also famous for her signature baggy clothes, which she said to be so people don’t objectify her for her body.
PEOPLE HOLD ON TO THESE MEMORIES AND HAVE AN ATTACHMENT. BUT IT’S VERY DEHUMANIZING.”
“I HAD NO GOAL OF ‘THIS IS GOING TO MAKE EVERYBODY THINK DIFFERENTLY OF ME’. I’VE HAD DIFFERENT COLOURED HAIR AND VIBES FOR EVERYTHING I’VE EVER DONE. I WANTED THIS ALBUM TO HAVE ITS OWN THING.”
Her change in appearance obviously broke her old image for some people. But to be fair, 100k followers out of 97 million followers is actually quite a very number. Most fans stills support her even when she made a massive appearance change and that is the great news.
After all, Billie Eilish is still only 19 years old and she will continue to change a lot as she grows up and learns.
