Billie Eilish says celebrities who get plastic surgery and ‘deny it’ make her ‘literally furious’

In an interview with The Guardian, Billie Eilish critics fellow stars who get plastic surgery and “deny it.”

Eilish was asked to explain “OverHeated,” the 10th track on her album, “Happier Than Ever.”

In the song’s bridge, Eilish addresses her body-shamers and says she won’t “redesign” herself to fit an arbitrary ideal: “All these other inanimate b—-es, it’s none of my business / But don’t you get sick of posin’ for pictures / With that plastic body?”

“‘OverHeated’ applies to all the people who promote unattainable body standards,” she told The Guardian. “It’s completely fine to get work done — do this, do that, do what makes you feel happy. It’s just when you deny it and say, ‘Oh, I got this all on my own, and if you just tried harder, you could get it.'”

“That makes me literally furious,” she added. “It is so bad for young women — and boys, too — to see that.”

Eilish also discussed how social media can exacerbate deceptive beauty standards.

“I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked,” she said. “And immediately I am like, oh my God, how do they look like that? I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake. Yet I still see it and go, oh God, that makes me feel really bad.”

“And I mean, I’m very confident in who I am, and I’m very happy with my life,” she continued. “I’m obviously not happy with my body, but who is?”

Eilish has admitted that when she was younger, she had a “horrible body relationship” and developed her signature baggy wardrobe because she “hated” her body and didn’t want people to make comments about it.

“When I’m on stage, I have to disassociate from the ideas I have of my body,” Eilish said.

“Especially because I wear clothes that are bigger and easier to move in without showing everything — they can be really unflattering. In pictures, they look like I don’t even know what. I just completely separate the two.”

“Because I have such a terrible relationship with my body, like you would not believe, so I just have to disassociate,” she continued. “Then you get a paparazzi picture taken when you were running to the door and had just put anything on, and didn’t know the picture’s being taken, and you just look how you look, and everyone’s like, ‘Fat!'”
