Eliminate Billie Eilish from your criticism on Twitter: She already knows what to say.
New blonde singer “Your Power” is the British Vogue cover star of the month of June, as the magazine showcases the traditionally dressed Gen Z pop icon without her signature baggy wardrobe and in a whole new light.
Eilish introduces an “old classic pin-up” look and opens up a new avenue of fashion in a pink Gucci corset and skirt over Agent Provocateur lingerie with elbow length latex gloves.
She told the magazine about the new look, before adding with a smirk, “I know, plus when I’m alone and shit.”
In other photos, the 19-year-old pop star is wearing a slew of custom body suits, revealing her much-discussed tattoo on her upper right thigh and hip.
Last year, Eilish told her fans that they would “never see” the ink, sparking huge speculation. Apparently, she has changed her mind, because the artwork is shown in multiple shots.
In the accompanying interview, Eilish, who speaks out against body defamation and has sparked conversations about portraying women in music, preemptively addresses the backlash she knows Vogue’s cover will be his inspiration for.
“ If you’re talking about body positivity, why wear a corset? Why not show your real body? “The thing is, I can do whatever I want,” echoing possible criticism of the shoot, the singer said.
Instead, Eilish said she’s all about focusing on “what makes you feel good” at this point in her life, the naysayers would be damned.
“If you want to have an operation, go for an operation,” she added. “If you want to wear a dress someone thinks you’re wearing too big, damn it – if you feel like you look good, you look good.”
Echoing similar sentiments on Instagram, Eilish wrote that she “loved making this photo”, encouraging millions of her followers to “do what you want whenever you want” and “have sex with everything else” in the caption.
Since skyrocketing to stardom, the “Bad Guy” singer has created her own niche in the fashion industry, preferring to wear bulky and brightly colored clothes due to her “toxic” relationship with her body.
But the Grammy Award winner is keen to break out of the boxes she put in as she continues to evolve as an artist.
She said, “Suddenly you are hypocritical if you want to show your skin, and you are easy, and you are a bitch and you are a bitch.” “If you are, then I am proud of it. Me and all the girls are handicapped, damn you know? Let’s turn it over and be authorized to do so. Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect from you.”
Earlier this month, Eilish released the single “Your Power” from her upcoming second album, “Happier Than Ever,” which will be released later this summer.
In the music video, Eilish stands alone on the mountainside, while a large snake wraps around her body, slowly restraining her.
The stripped phonemic number targets an anonymous person who is abusing their power; In an interview with British Vogue, she said the song was “an open letter to people taking advantage of this feature – most of them men.”
“I would like people to listen to me. Not just trying to figure out who I’m talking about, because it’s not about that.” It’s not about one person at all, “said Eilish. You might think, “That’s because she works in the music industry” – no dude. It’s everywhere. “
