Billie Eilish Says Her Past Boyfriends Never Made Her Feel Desired – Billie Eilish has spoken about her body image and made a shocking confession about her never feeling desired while being in a relationship.
Billie Eilish Says Her Past Boyfriends Never Made Her Feel Desired:
Speaking to British GQ, the 18-year-old star, Billie Eilish, who delivered a powerful message against body-shaming in arena tour video earlier this year, and explained that she has “huge” issues with her body, which she believes is partly fuelled by the way she was treated by her exes.
“Here’s a bomb for you: I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them,” she said GQ in a new interview. “And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody.
The multi Grammy award-winning singer, who released her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ last year, went on to explain why she wears predominantly loose-fitting clothing.

“So I dress the way I dress as I don’t like to think of you guys – I mean anyone, everyone – judging it, or the size of it,” she said.
“But that doesn’t mean that I won’t wake up one day and decide to wear a tank top, which I have done before.”
When asked how it makes her feel when she wears something different, Billie Eilish replied: “Well, I do that and suddenly my b**bs are trending on Twitter. Which is fine – that s*** looks good.”
Billie Eilish explained, “All I ever wanted was a boyfriend. Any time when it was rainy or cloudy, all I would wish is I was with some boy. That was my thing. Whenever we were somewhere nice, a beach or a balcony with a sunset, I would never be able to enjoy the experience as I just used to wish I was with some boy.
“And I couldn’t be further away from that. I’ve had my heart broken, sure,” added Eilish.
“People have done some terrible sh*t to me. The crazy sh*t I have gone through. I have never felt powerful in a relationship. I did once and, guess what, I took advantage of that person’s kindness. I wasn’t used to it. It’s been months and I am not attracted to people any more. I don’t know what’s going on… It’s actually kind of dope.”
Billie Eilish Has Opened Up About Her Body Image And Called Out Those Who Have Body-Shamed Her:
The “Bad Guy” singer added that the way she dresses does not conform to gender stereotypes.
“Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl,” Billie Eilish told the publication.
“And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created, because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman.”
The “No Time to Die” singer continued: “That tour video was about all that. It is me saying: look, there is a body underneath these clothes and you don’t get to see it. Isn’t that a shame? But my body is mine and yours is yours. Our own bodies are kind of the only real things which are truly ours. I get to see it and get to show it when I want to.”
During an interlude at the Miami gig – and at subsequent shows – a video clip starring Eilish was projected onto big screens, presenting Billie Eilish in a vest before stripping down to her bra. Eilish called out those who have body-shamed her: “The body I was born with – is it not what you wanted?”
The teen star asks the audience as, in the video, she begins taking layers of her clothing off, first a hoodie, then a vest, down to her bra. “If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
