In the short film, Eilish is shown in a dark room reciting a powerful monologue about the implications of body shaming. Back in March, at a show in Miami, Eilish unveiled a short film meant to combat body-shaming as a preface to her song "All the Good Girls Go to Hell".

Though she's since had to postpone the remainder of the dates on her Where Do We Go?

Billie Eilish released a short film on Wednesday, in which she slowly strips down while her own voiceover slams all eager to body shame and pass judgment. But I feel you watching, always.

The "everything i wanted" singer begins the video by standing in darkness while wearing her signature oversized clothing. Some people use it to shame others; some people use it to shame me. Some people praise it.


"Sometimes I get this response from parents like, 'Thank you for dressing the way you do so my daughter doesn't dress like a slut, ' and I'm like, 'Whoa! My Hips? The physique I used to be born with it, it isn't what you sought after?" the "Bad Guy" - singer is going on to invite, she takes to the air her tank most sensible ahead of dipping itself in a pool of black liquid.

"Do you know me?" Eilish questions. "Do my shoulders provoke you? Though you've never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it". Over time, she undresses, then fully goes below the surface, while talking about people's thoughts on her body.

The short film has received an unbelievable response from her fans who are more than proud of her for sending out such a powerful message. "Though you've never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?"

She states that assumptions are made about people "based on their size". "We decide who they are, what they're worth".


"Is my value based only on your perception?"

Earlier this month Billie Eilish was granted a temporary restraining order against a 24-year-old man who trespassed on her parents' property multiple times. Some people hate what I wear. "That's why I wear baggy clothes", she says in a Calvin Klein ad.

In April of this year, the singer reacted to body shamers who criticized her for posting pictures of herself in a bathing suit.

Billie added, "It's not that I like (my body) now, I just think I'm a bit more OK with it".
