Billie Eilish Hits Back At People Criticising Her New Look In Vogue Cover Shoot

Billie Eilish has responded to critics of her recent Vogue cover, posting an edited image of a Daily Mail headline on her Instagram story.


The 19-year-old 'Bad Guy' singer changed her look completely for the shoot, which saw her deviate from her usual baggy clothing and black and green hair, to an entirely different style.

On the Vogue cover, Eilish wore stockings, a plunging corset and a Burberry trench coat, while her trademark hair was replaced with a platinum blonde look.


However, some took it upon themselves to criticise her look - with now Billie has responded, taking particular issue with a Daily Mail headline.

Where the publication had written: "Proof that money can make you change your values and sell out," Billie has corrected it with: "Proof that women can change their minds and reclaim autonomy over their own bodies."

The original headline continued: "Billie Eilish shocks fans by swapping baggy clothes for lingerie in Vogue - despite years of vowing to 'hide her body'."


However, here Billie has amended the latter part of that text to read 'despite years of being an actual child'.

In the Vogue interview, she elaborated on her thoughts on the subject of body shaming in the media and in her career.

Speaking to journalist Laura Snapes for British Vogue, Eilish said: "My thing is that I can do whatever I want."


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

But she explained that she wants to turn the narrative around, saying: "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."

Last year, Billie Eilish opted to hit back at body shamers once more by sharing an Instagram video, which was originally created for her 2020 Where Do We Go? tour.

The clip shows then-18-year-old Eilish slowly removing layers of clothing, before the video ends with her sinking down into black, viscous liquid.


As she undresses, Eilish says: "Do you know me? Really know me?

"You have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body.

"Some people hate what I wear; some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others; some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always.

"And nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sighs of relief.


"If I lived by them, I'd never be able to move."
