Billie Eilish has slammed critics for their negative comments on her fashion style.
The 17-year-old singer took to Instagram to share an image of her wearing a baggy, colorful, print-heavy outfit—her trademark style—alongside the caption, “If only I dressed normal id be so much hotter yeah yeah come up with a better comment I'm tired of that one.”
Eilish has been trolled before for the way she dresses. In a recent interview with Elle, she explained why she only wears certain types of clothing. “The point is not: Hey, let’s go slut-shame all these girls for not dressing like Billie Eilish. It makes me mad. I have to wear a big shirt for you not to feel uncomfortable about my boobs!”
More trolls came for her in June, when a photo of her in a tank top went viral. Before a show in Nashville, Eilish had gotten off her bus in the tank top to greet fans outside and someone snapped a picture. “My boobs were trending on Twitter!” she told Elle. “At number one! What is that?! Every outlet wrote about my boobs!”
In May, Eilish opened up about her public-facing image and her clothing choices in an ad for Calvin Klein. In the campaign, “I Speak My Truth in #MyCalvins,” she said, “I never want the world to know everything about me,” adding, “That’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what’s underneath.”
