Popstar, Billie Eilish delivered a powerful message about body shaming as she kicked off her world tour in Miami on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old has previously said she wears baggy clothes to avoid being sexualised and addressed criticism of that choice during a video interlude.
“If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman,” she said. “If I shed the layers, I am a slut”.
“Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge me for it. Why?” she asked.
The two-minute video was played towards the end of Eilish’s 22-song set, immediately before the song All The Good Girls Go To Hell.
In the visual, Eilish was seen removing several layers of clothing until she was only wearing a bra, before sinking symbolically under the surface of a black, tar-like liquid.
At the end of the clip, she warned against making “assumptions about people based on their size”.
“We decide who they are. We decide what they’re worth,” she said. “If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me?
“Is my value-based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?” she asked.
During the concert, the five-time Grammy-winner dressed in her traditional baggy clothes – with a green sequinned shirt that matched her shorts and black Nike high-top trainers.
