Billie Eilish Stripped Off Her Baggy Clothes at a Concert to Make a Point About Body Shaming {VIDEO}

 

Billie Eilish kicked off her world tour in Miami on Monday by stripping down to just her bra to make a statement about body shaming.

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 of the video says:

“While I feel your stares, your disapproval, or your sighs of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move. Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? … The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?”

“If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut,” she continues. “Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it … You make assumptions about people based on their size.” But, “if I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me?” she asks. “Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
