Early on, the singer had revealed that she wore baggy clothes to protect herself from being ‘slut-shamed’. Now, the Grammy winner has come forward to slam the body shamers head-on.
During her ongoing World Tour, ‘Where do we go?’ Billie took off her shirt, while an empowering verse was read out as a voiceover. For the first night of the concert in Miami, Billie stripped in a short video that was played in between songs.
Excerpt of the lines read, “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”.
“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it, and judge me for it. Why?” the poem further read.
After the verse comes to an end, the 18-year-old takes off her shirt and lowers herself in a dark grimy liquid.
The video was shared widely by her fans on social media platforms.
While one Twitter user called the act “insane”, another posted the entire video.

if I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? what that means? is my value based only on your perception? or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?"#BillieEilish 🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/fGA7KoXvt9
Some Billie Eilish fans also shared the lyrics of the poem that was read.
