Billie Eilish Strips Down To Talk About Body Shaming

March 12, 2020

Billie Eilish has been very vocal about her choice to wear baggy clothes, because she doesn't want to be sexualized.  But she kicked off her world tour in Miami on Monday by stripping down to just her bra on a video on the big screen. And it was all to make a statement about body shaming.

Here's how it went down:  A pre-recorded video played on a big screen, along with a two-minute spoken word monologue about how she constantly feels judged.  And she slowly removed layers of clothing in the video.  First her hoodie, then her shirt.

The monologue included the line, "If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman.  If I shed the layers, I am a slut.  Though you've never seen my body, you still judge it."  If you want to hear the full speech, a bunch of fans posted videos online.   But be careful watching it at work because there are some curse words.
