Billie Eilish has revealed that she, surprisingly, lost a lot of followers after she flaunted her body on Instagram.
Speaking with Elle for their October 2021 cover story, the singer who was famous for her baggy clothes revealed that she lost thousands of followers when she started showing more skin.
“I lost 100,000 followers, just because of the boobs,” she said. “People are scared of big boobs.”
She added, “People hold on to these memories and have an attachment. But it’s very dehumanizing.”
But she has not stopped her from doing what she wants; she wore a corset for the cover of Vogue’s May 2021 issue, and in July, she posted photos of herself wearing a Miaou corset, and more recently, she donned the same silhouette for the beige Oscar de la Renta gown she wore at the Met Gala.
About showing her skin, she said, “The other day, I decided to wear a tank top. It wasn’t even a provocative shirt. But I know people are going to say, ‘Holy fuck, she’s dressing sexy and trying to make a statement.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not. It’s 500 degrees and I just want to wear a tank top.’”
