Billie Eilish opens up about sexuality as she says she's 'physically attracted' to women

‘I’m physically attracted to them – but I’m also so intimidated by them’

Billie Eilish has revealed she is “physically attracted” to women in a recent interview.

Speaking to Variety, the pop star opened up about she hasn’t always felt like she could “relate to girls very well.”

But she went on to say that she is attracted to women.

The ‘Bad Guy’ singer explained: “I love them so much. I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real.

“I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life.

“I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”

Eilish’s biggest hit this year has been the song ‘What Was I Made For?’ which featured in the Barbie movie.

The song has been nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the Grammys, and could see the 21-year-old have more success at the Oscars, after she won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for No Time to Die in 2022.

Along with chart success across the world, including here in the UK where it reached number one, the song became a huge TikTok trend.

Eilish said the reaction the song got was “so moving” for her, explaining to Variety: “I feel like I helped bring people together, and it felt so special. I wasn’t expecting to have women around the world feel connected.”

Eilish has grown up in the public eye, having first found fame at the age of just 13 with her song ‘Ocean Eyes.’

She opened up about her feelings about body image, the scrutiny she has faced as a young female music star and how this impacted her early fashion choices.

In the early years of her career, Eilish wore mostly oversized, baggy clothing, and sid this was because she “I didn’t want people to have access to my body, even visually.”

She continued: “I wasn’t strong enough and secure enough to show it.”

“I’ve never felt like a woman, to be honest with you. I’ve never felt desirable. I’ve never felt feminine.

“I have to convince myself that I’m, like, a pretty girl.

“I identify as ‘she/her’ and things like that, but I’ve never really felt like a girl.”
