Billie Eilish Strips To Underwear For Powerful New Video

Billie Eilish has stripped to her underwear to voice a powerful message in a new video.

Posting to her Instagram story, Eilish shared a short clip of her undressing with a link to a short YouTube video which shows even more.

She says:

You have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body.

Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it, some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me — but I feel you watching. Always, and nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move.

As the voice-over continues, Billie begins removing layers of clothing.

She continues questioning the opinions of others while taking off more and more items of clothing.

Check out the video below:

She says:

Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips?

The body I was born with – is it not what you wanted? If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a sl*t. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it. Why?

We decide who they are. We decide what they’re worth.

If I wear more; if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What does that mean?

Billie then removes her top and stands motionless in a black bra.

She then adds:

Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?

And then the video draws to a close.

Truly inspiring.
