Billie Eilish Has No Problem With Her Pal Lil Yachty Rapping About Her Breasts: “I Think It’s Fun!”

The singer wonders why nobody ever comments about male singer’s bodies.

Being a teenager is hard enough. But being a teenager and trying to figure out how you feel about your body while the whole world is watching (and commenting) sounds like a nightmare.

That, though, is basically the gauntlet Billie Eilish said she had to run early in her career, when any rando with a keyboard felt emboldened to say the first thing that popped into their head about the singer’s figure.

“I have big boobs. I’ve had big boobs since I was nine years old, and that’s just the way I am. That’s how I look,” she told Variety magazine in an interview in which Eilish explained that she was never trying to “have people not sexualize me.”

She did, however, until recently restrict access to her body by wearing her signature baggy outfits because on the rare occasions when she did show some skin — such as wearing a tank top in public when she was 16 — it set off a media frenzy and unwanted attention.

“You wear something that’s at all revealing, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, but you didn’t want people to sexualize you?,’” she recalled thinking. “You can suck my a–! I’m literally a being that is sexual sometimes. F–k you!”

She did, however, admit that she had no problem when her pal Lil Yachty rapped “She had big t–s like Billie Eilish, but she couldn’t sing,” on Drake’s “Another Late Night.”

Asked if she was offended by the line, Eilish said not at all. “I think it’s fun!” she said of the song from Drizzy’s new For All the Dogs album.

“I’m flattered! Yachty is my friend. Drake is my friend. It’s a joke. I do have big t–s. I love it.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Eilish goes into what the writer describes as a “good old-fashioned rant” about the double-standard applied to women in music.

“Nobody ever says a thing about men’s bodies. If you’re muscular, cool. If you’re not, cool. If you’re rail thin, cool. If you have a dad bod, cool. If you’re pudgy, love it!” she said.

“Everybody’s happy with it. You know why? Because girls are nice. They don’t give a f–k because we see people for who they are!”

The Power of Women interview also touches on Eilish’s Oscar-buzz Barbie song, “What Was I Made For?,” her tenuous relationship with femininity/womanhood and her ardent support for a plant-based diet.
