Billie Eilish says she doesn’t feel like a woman

Billie has made a number of headlines today

Billie Eilish has said that she doesn’t feel like a woman.

In her absolutely massive interview with Variety, Billie said she struggles with her femininity and body image.

She explained: “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.”

Eilish also sparked debate in the same interview when she said that men don’t face criticism for their bodies because “girls are nice”.

In the interview with Variety, Eilish explained that being a woman is “such a war”, “especially being a young woman in the public eye. It’s really unfair.”

Billie, who’s just 21 and already worth around $30 million, spoke about her decision to wear baggy clothes to stop people talking about her body.

She said: “I wasn’t trying to have people not sexualize me. But I didn’t want people to have access to my body, even visually.

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

Billie said she was would’ve been devastated if people made comments on her body – but she’s argued that men don’t face the same scrutiny at all.

She explained: “Nobody ever says a thing about men’s bodies.

“If you’re muscular, cool. If you’re not, cool. If you’re rail thin, cool. If you have a dad bod, cool. If you’re pudgy, love it!

“Everybody’s happy with it. You know why? “Because girls are nice.

“They don’t give a f**k because we see people for who they are!”
