Billie Eilish has said she feels she “can’t win” after facing criticism for posting an Instagram video in which she wore a bikini.
The singer, 18, shared a short clip taken on her holiday in Hawaii earlier this year, and she’s revealed in a new interview that she received a deluge of negative comments because of it.
“It was trending. There were comments like, ‘I don’t like her anymore because as soon as she turns 18 she’s a w***e. I can't win. I cannot win," she said.
Eilish recalled receiving a similar backlash after she once wore a tank top.
The “Bad Guy” singer said she wears baggy clothes to avoid being sexualised.
Just last month, she addressed the criticism of what she wears as well as negative comments made about her body on social media in a powerful message about body-shaming on the first night of her world tour.
“It’s not that I like my body now, I just think I’m a bit more okay with it,” she said in the interview.
“If there’s a day when I’m like, ‘You know what, I feel comfortable with my belly right now, and I wanna show my belly,’ I should be allowed to do that.”
Eilish’s world tour has been postponed due to the coronavirus lockdown.
Billie Eilish spoke about why she distanced herself from social media, claiming she is "super hated" by some people simply because of her fame and success.
The album, which features 16 songs, was released earlier on 30 July by Interscope Records, and has already garnered strong reviews from critics.
