Billie Eilish Says She Lost 100,000 Followers After Posting Picture Of 'Big Boobs'

Billie Eilish says she lost 100,000 followers after showing off her new look as 'people are scared of big boobs'.

Ahead of the release of her new album Happier Than Ever, the 19-year-old started to change up her usual look - swapping her green locks and baggy clothes for a platinum barnet and more experimental fashion choices.

And while some fans absolutely loved her new look - a post of her Vogue front cover became the fastest Instagram post to hit a million likes at the time - some were not happy and showed their distaste by unfollowing her account.

Speaking to Elle, Eilish said: "People hold on to these memories and have an attachment.

"But it's very dehumanising."

Speaking about a recent Instagram post of her wearing a corset, the singer continued: "I lost 100,000 followers, just because of the boobs.

"People are scared of big boobs."

She went on to talk about how she is constantly scrutinised for how she chooses to dress.

Eilish told the publication: "The other day, I decided to wear a tank top. It wasn't even a provocative shirt.

"But I know people are going to say, 'Holy f***, she's dressing sexy and trying to make a statement.'

"And I'm like, 'No, I'm not. It's 500 degrees and I just want to wear a tank top.' "

This isn't the first time the teen has hit back at body shamers who try and criticise what she wears.

During her interview for British Vogue - which saw Eilish don a corset and a Burberry trench coat - she said: "If you're about body positivity, why would you wear a corset? Why wouldn't you show your actual body?

"My thing is that I can do whatever I want. It's all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery.

"If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f*** it - if you feel like you look good, you look good."

She went on to point out that she - and other women - can be harshly judged for how they choose to dress.

She continued: "Suddenly, you're a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you're easy, and you're a slut.

"If I am, then I'm proud. Me and all the girls are hoes, and f*** it, y'know? Let's turn it around and be empowered in that.

"Showing your body and showing your skin - or not - should not take any respect away from you."
