Billie Eilish defends herself against backlash from Taylor Swift fans – Yahoo News

Billie Eilish hopped on Instagram to defend herself as Swifties were less than thrilled with comments she made in a recent Billboard interview.

“Okay, it would be so awesome if people would stop putting words in my mouth and actually read what I said in that Billboard article,” the musician said via her Instagram Story. “I wasn’t targeting anyone, these are systemic, industry-wide issues. And when it comes to variations, many artists post them – including ME! what I clearly say in the article. The climate crisis is happening now and it’s about all of us being part of the problem and trying to do better. »



In case you missed the whole ordeal because it happened on Friday (March 29) when you were completely removed (ditto), Billie said. Billboard that she’s not there for the “biggest artists in the world” to create “useless” album variants to entice fans to keep “buying more.”

It’s right in front of us and people are getting away with it left and right, and I find it really frustrating as someone who’s really doing everything possible to be sustainable and do the best they can and try to involve everything the world. on my team to be sustainable – and then it’s some of the biggest artists in the world creating 40 different fucking vinyl packages that have one unique thing, just to entice you to keep buying more.

Buuuut because Taylor Swift is known for her multiple album variations, fans read RIGHT in there and it was quite a ~thing~ on Twitter.
