And that’s not all…
His first EP, Don’t smile at me went all the way to slot fourteen.

If anything it was This look that became his trademark around 2017.
And who will ever forget that iconic color combo?
Billie made waves while working out neon green roots. Nobody else ever could.
She has already talked about her style…
Her clothing choices — which mostly consist of loose, oversized clothes — are chosen to protect herself from her global audience who shame and judge her on her natural appearance.
Speaking in an interview a few years ago, Billie explained those choices…
“That’s why I wear loose clothes,” she says.
“No one can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath.”
“Nobody can say, ‘she’s thick-thin’, ‘she’s not thick-thin’, ‘she’s got a flat ass’, ‘she’s got a big ass’.” Nobody can say anything because they don’t know.
But sadly, people have already tried to exploit and shame the teenager.
Even when she was as young as fifteenonline trolls were trying to sexualize her for no apparent reason.
Billie has the right to write on never mind she wants…
There is no excuse for sexualizing a young woman…
Or any woman of any age, for that matter.
She was only seventeen when she started experiencing this kind of disrespect.
But, when discussing the subject, Billie has said in the past that she doesn’t want to stay covered forever.
“I’m going to be a woman. I want to show off my body,” Billie told Elle in a 2019 interview.
“What if I want to make a video where I want to look desirable?” she says.
But she understands the repercussions such a move could have.
“I know that would be a huge thing,” Billie said.
Adding “I know people will say, ‘I’ve lost all respect for her. “”
Well, in December 2019, the pop sensation turned eighteen.
And fans had yet to notice a change in her fashion sense and clothing choices.
Taking to Instagram, the singer decided it was time to post her first bikini pic…
Who knew this would cause an internet outage?
So many despicable human beings have exposed themselves in a simple, innocent photo of a girl and her friends on vacation.
From body-shaming to sexualization…
People just couldn’t help but react to the photo.
Within hours, “Billie Eilish body” was trending on Twitter and horrible comments about her body started pouring in.
Many of them have since been removed after receiving backlash.
Billie posted a series of photos from a bit of a vacation she had in Hawaii.
Among the 10 posts, there were 2 videos/boomerangs. One showed the upper half of Eilish as she took a shower (with a bathing suit on) and the other was a post of her and her friend on a boat just staring at the water.
Take a look here.
In a recent interview with High Snobiety, Billie talked about respect in the music industry.
She admitted that if she had started her career being more feminine and girly, she wouldn’t have been taken seriously in the industry.
The star also noted that her “masculine” dress sense has helped her a lot in being taken seriously as a teen entertainer.
“People saw me as this 15-year-old, kid, who wore this kind of stuff, had this kind of look, acted this kind of way, said this kind of way. I felt like I couldn’t change. That’s why I went so far to the other side,” Billie said.
She added: “I was trying to prove, ‘Hey, f*** you guys, I can do whatever I want.’ Now I can look really masculine if I want to, and really feminine if I want to, and it won’t make the headlines.
Acknowledging how much her masculine side had helped her in her career, she said: “I think people took me more seriously because I had this more masculine way of dressing all along. my career.
“If I had been more feminine and girly, people would have been much less respectful of me.”
Billie also opened up about how her gender affected her tenure in the music industry.
“I just remember crying in my bed because I was thinking about what kind of show I would like to put on,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.
“There was a specific period where I was in this abyss of despair about myself because I didn’t have much to look up to for girls like me to be taken seriously.”
She felt that her sex was holding her back.
“I would feel so hopeless because I’m a girl so I could never have a show like that, I could never be free up there and wild…to play that way and be more physical and be more about the performance…I thought that would never happen,” Billie added.
But she thinks finding the balance really helps.
“I feel most powerful when I feel most masculine in my life… I can also find power in femininity. It’s kind of a balance between the two.
“Based on the way I walk and stand, my clothes, my face, my jewelry, my fingers and everything I am day to day. I like to feel more masculine than feminine, it just makes me feel better.
“I struggled with it for a long time because I wanted to feel feminine and like it, but it really wasn’t, but it’s finding times where you can have that and it always feels good” , she said.
Billie revealed that she now had more hope for the future.
“The way women are dominating absolutely everyone in this industry right now is so exciting to me,” she said.
“It really gives me hope and inspiration. It’s not just women doing one thing, it’s women doing all kinds of different things.
“And looking different and acting different and having different styles. There’s such a range right now and so nice to see and it’s refreshing and new and it’s never been like this.
“It’s really cool to be a part of it,” Billie concluded.
But this week, Billie made headlines for her fashion sense, rather than her musical prowess.
She shocked fans by wearing a controversial t-shirt while out and about in Los Angeles.
She was spotted wearing an illusion nude tee paired with the risque look with cycling shorts and a baseball cap.
