Billie Eilish Encourages Fans To 'Normalize Real Bodies" After Being Body-Shamed For Wearing Tank-Top

Billie Eilish endorsed the idea that "Instagram isn't real" after being criticised by body shamers.

The 18-year-old pop star has taken to TikTok to address the issue of body shaming, after she was mocked by a Twitter user named @GamesNosh for wearing a casual outfit earlier this week. @GameNosh captioned snap, "in 10 months Billie Eilish has developed a mid-30's wine mom body."

Dressed casual: Billie Eilish spotted in a monochromatic tan outfit, with no make-up, running errands in Los Angeles on Oct 11, 2020.

Billie — who just won Best New Artist, Top Female Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards — was seen sporting a beige tank top and a pair of shorts — posted a video from blogger Chizi Duru about body shaming. The video said: "Can we normalise normal bodies?

"Ya'll got to start normalising real bodies, OK? Not everyone has a wagon behind them, OK? Guts are normal. They're normal. Boobs sag, especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn't real."

@GamesNosh's tweet prompted fans to come to her defence. Among them is 2 Broke Girls star Kat Dennings, who tweeted, "Anyone reacting to @billieeilish having a normal body has to take a hard look at themselves. As someone who looked exactly like that at her age, it’d be nice for this unhealthy nonsense to f*** right off. She’s beautiful and normal goodbye!"

Billie is well-known for her eye-catching fashion sense, which often sees her wearing oversized outfits from major luxury brands such as Burberry and Louis Vuitton.

And the chart-topping star previously admitted she's adopted her distinctive style in order to retain a degree of mystery about herself.

She explained in a Calvin Klein commercial: "I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know?

"Nobody can be like, 'Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she got a flat a**, she got a fat a**.' Nobody can say any of that because they don’t know.'"

Billie has also admitted she likes to dress in a way that takes her out of her "comfort zone".

She explained: "I just like dressing out of my comfort zone. I want to dress in a way that if I was in a room full of people wearing regular clothes, I would be like, ‘Oh, I bet everyone's looking at me.’ I want to feel that way. That's my casual." — BANG
