In the anniversary issue of 20 years of V Magazine, Pharrell and Billie Eilish came together for an interview. Pharrell asks the questions and Billie Eilish replies all question in all sincerity.
See the Instagram post below.
Pharrell asked her the following question, what people’s biggest misconception about her.
Billie Eilish that stated people think her biggest misconception is that she wears baggy clothes for a different reason. ‘Bad Guy’ singer explained that there was no specific reason why she wore baggy clothes.
Here’s the statement below.
“Oh man, I have thought about that a lot. There are a lot of misconceptions. I think the one that’s more recent, and I don’t know if it’s a misconception or just something that I really don’t like, which is that there is a whole kind of…you know [the way] I dress is very not necessarily feminine, or girly, or whatever.
I wear baggy shit and I wear what I want; I don’t say, “Oh, I am going to wear baggy clothes because it’s baggy clothes.” It’s never like that. It’s more, just, I wear what I want to wear. But of course, everyone sees it as, “She’s saying no to being sexualized,” and, “She’s saying no to being the stereotypical female.” It’s a weird thing because I know a lot of what I hear is a positive or people trying to be positive about how I dress; how I am never really out there wearing nothing, or wearing dresses.
I’ve heard that. [Even] from my parents, [the] positive [comments] about how I dress have this slut-shaming element. Like, “I am so glad that you are dressing like a boy so that other girls can dress like boys so that they aren’t sluts.” That’s basically what it sounds like to me. And I can’t [overstate how] strongly I do not appreciate that, at all. And they aren’t specifically saying that, but it feels like that. I have never ever looked at a girl who feels comfortable in her clothes, body, and skin and thought, “Ew, that’s gross, she is showing too much,” or, “I wish people wouldn’t wear that.” I have never in my life felt that way.
I have always supported and fucked with and just loved when a woman or a man or anyone in the world feel comfortable in their skin, their body, to show just whatever they want. I don’t like that there’s this weird new world of supporting me by shaming people that [may not] want to [dress like me].”
A month ago, a recent interview with Vogue Australia, 17 years-old indie-pop singer Billie Eilish has revealed why she wears baggy clothes.
The ‘bad guy’ singer explained her outfits purposefully conceal her body so that the media can’t body shame her.
