Singer Billie Eilish is getting candid about how she has never felt desired, opening up about her physical appearance and signature style.
The 18-year-old star spoke in a recent interview with British GQ, discussing her style (which involves oversized hoodies and baggy clothing) and her signature sound of being unapologetically unique.
I went through a period of wanting to be like everyone else. I would only go to so-called trendy shops and wear what was considered by some as trendy. It was a very uncomfortable year. Also, because I wasn’t rich, and a lot of my friends were rich, that was very hard to deal with. But that went away pretty fast; no idea why. Since then, I’ve never felt comfortable looking like other people.”
Since she couldn’t fit in, Eilish created her own path independently, and this reflects in her music. But she says sometimes issues of body image and how she has covered her body has affected her personal life.
Here’s a bomb for you. I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them. And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody.
So I dress the way I dress as I don’t like to think of you guys – I mean anyone, everyone – judging it, or the size of it. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t wake up one day and decide to wear a tank top, which I have done before.”
Describing her signature style, Eilish says, “Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman.“
