The 18-year-old is already a multiple Grammy award winner, a Guinness World Record holder, an animal activist and a pop culture icon. She has certainly come a long way since her SoundCloud days and has now emerged successful. Billie defies the conventional notions of stardom to carve her own path. She's been recently subjected to body shaming and twitter is in rage. Read below to find out more!
Billie Eilish is firmly on her way towards reaching the pinnacle, having recently recorded the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film, 'No Time To Die'. The queen is currently gearing up for her livestream concert 'Where Do We Go?'. Fans are really excited to be a part of it.
However, as it is with most celebrities in today's era of social media, every aspect of their life often tends to be under unwarranted scrutiny. There are always some trolls who try to bring them down with their distasteful comments. Billie was subjected to it as well.
She was criticised over tweet by a Twitter user called GamesNosh who attempted to body shame her for simply wearing a tank top and shorts.
This single tweet, which compared Eilish's body to that of a 'mid-30's wine mom', has now come in for severe criticism. Fans of the star took to Twitter to call out false, idealistic notions of body stereotypes and to stop the very act of body shaming in general.
Eilish is also a fashion icon, who is known for popularising the trend of baggy and ill-fitting clothes. This not only defies the standardised notions of glamour but also makes her stand out as an unconventional fashionista. She is also known to speak out against body-shaming on numerous occasions.
Billie responded with a subtle message and also shared a short video from Chizi Duru, which urges people to normalise 'real bodies'.
The misinformed tweet came in for a significant amount of backlash as celebrities including Kat Dennings and The Blessed Madonna joined fans in supporting Billie Eilish and shutting down trolls.
