Eilish agrees with people who say she won the Grammy's for being white

Billie Eilish is using her voice to call out racist double standards in the music industry. She reportedly said "Look, if I wasn't white I would probably be in rap. Why? They just judge from what you look like and what they know.” What else is on the Grammy Award winners mind? Let’s find out 

  • In a recent interview with British GQ, the "Bad Guy" singer criticized the industry for labeling white artists' music as pop and Black artists' music as rap or R&B — an issue Tyler, the creator also addressed at this year's Grammys. "It sucks that whenever we — and I mean guys that look like me — do anything that's genre-bending or that's anything they always put it in a rap or urban category," Tyler said at the time.
  • "I don't like that 'urban' word — it's just a politically correct way to say the n-word to me." "I have always hated categories," Billie told GQ. "I hate when people say, 'Oh, you look like blank. You sound like blank.' It was such a cool thing Tyler said. I agree with him about that term."

"Don't judge an artist off the way someone looks or the way someone dresses," she continued. Eilish is well-known for being relatable but also standing up for what is right. What do you think about the Pop Stars comment? Let us know below.
