Billie Eilish, the popular musician, turned to Instagram this weekend to reply to criticism about her wardrobe choices. She wrote a "letter to some comments" she saw on social media.
"I spent the first five years of my career getting absolutely obliterated by you fools for being boyish and dressing the way I did, and constantly being told I'd be hotter if I acted like a woman," Eilish wrote.
"And now, whenever I feel comfortable enough to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I change and become a sellout."
"I can be both," she added, addressing the "true idiots" and "bozos" who have criticized on her style. "Allow women to exist!"
In 2019, the then-17-year-old singer revealed her fashion choices in a Calvin Klein ad, saying, "I never want the world to know everything about me."
That's why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can form an opinion since they haven't seen what's underlying, you know?Earlier this month, the singer, aged 21, wore
a more feminine appearance to the 2023 Met Gala, a black lace gown custom-made by Simone Rocha.
Eilish told Marie Claire magazine in 2021 that her decision to broaden her dress style had an impact on her following base.
