Billie Eilish is rightly confused over why anybody would concentrate on another person’s body picture.
The 19-year-old had been discussing unflattering pictures of herself – and people’s snap judgments on them – when a author for the UK’s Guardian newspaper informed her “how weird” it was that her body was “dissected in such a way.” Eilish agreed, noting human our bodies – at their core – are actually simply consuming and waste disposal machines.
“Yes! I mean, we only need bodies to eat and walk around and poop,” she informed the publication. “We only need them to survive. It’s ridiculous that anybody even cares about bodies at all. Like, why? Why do we care? You know, when you really think about it?”
The Grammy winner is thought for purposefully working to regulate the body picture narrative round herself, sporting saggy garments on stage and through her final album marketing campaign. As an artist, she’s tried to place the concentrate on her music, not what she seems like. Lately, she informed Vogue Australia, “it has been so vitally important to have the image that I want, and try to be seen how I want to be seen.”
And though the 19-year-old is media savvy, she informed The Guardian that when she sees sure forms of pictures on the web, it has impacted her in detrimental methods.
“I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked,” she informed the paper. “And immediately I am like, ‘Oh my God, how do they look like that?’ I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake. Yet I still see it and go, ‘Oh God, that makes me feel really bad. And I mean, I’m very confident in who I am, and I’m very happy with my life… I’m obviously not happy with my body”
“But who is?” she added.
Actually, Eilish has a few traces in her music, “OverHeated,” on her new album, Happier Than Ever, that options some lyrics that addressing unrealistic figures.
“It’s completely fine to get work done – do this, do that, do what makes you feel happy,” she informed the newspaper. “It’s just when you deny it and say, ‘Oh, I got this all on my own, and if you just tried harder, you could get it.’ That makes me literally furious. It is so bad for young women – and boys, too – to see that.”
