Billie Eilish lashes out trolls who labelled her a “sellout” for dressing in “feminine” attire.

Billie Eilish has shared details on her evolving sense of style in response to people who called her a “sellout” for donning “feminine” clothes.

The 21-year-old singer responded to criticisms of her attire that she had seen online over the weekend on her Instagram Story. She started by recalling some of the criticism she had encountered at the start of her career because of the clothes she was wearing.

“I spent the first 5 years of my career getting absolutely OBLITERATED by you fools for being boy ish and dressing how I did & constantly being told I’d be hotter if I acted like a woman,”

she wrote in the since-expired Instagram Story, which has been shared on Twitter.

Eilish mentioned how trolls have reacted as she detailed how she has come to embrace various wardrobe options.

“And now when I feel comfortable to wear anything remotely feminine or fitting, I CHANGED and am a sellout…and ‘What happened to her.’ Omg it’s not the same Billie, she’s just like the rest blah, blah,”  she continued.

Following her characterization of these opponents as “true idiots” and “bozos,” she urged her supporters to just “let women exist!”

In a follow-up post, she hit back at the assumption that she has to have one sense of style “FUN FACT! Did you know that women are multifaceted!!!!!??? shocking right??’ she sarcastically wrote. “Believe it or not women could be interested in multiple things.”

“Also that femininity does not equal weakness???!!!!” she continued in another post. “Omg?! insane right? Who knew?? And also totally unheard of and insane to want to express yourself differently at different times.”

She attacked internet trolls at the end of her essay, calling them “women hating a** weirdos,”

The “Bad Guy” singer expressed her thoughts on social media earlier this year, including the reasons she dislikes it. She disclosed that she had deleted all social media applications from her phone during an interview on the Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast in March.

“I don’t look at it anymore,” she said. “I deleted it all off my phone, which is such a huge deal for me. ‘Cause dude, you didn’t have the internet to grow up with,” she said.

She also mentioned how uncomfortable it made her feel to see self-centric social media messages.

“I’m a person who goes on the internet… And to change nothing about the person I am or the life that I live, and to just keep doing what I do over the years, and slowly the videos that I’m watching and the things that I see on the internet are about me. ‘Eww, stinky.’ I don’t like that,” she explained.

Eilish has also publicly discussed her many perceptions of style.in a September 2021 interview with Vogue.

“Big dresses were my favourite thing when I was a kid. I had so many dresses, I would wear a dress every single day,” the “Lovely” singer said. “It’s really body image that tore that s*** down. [It’s] why I think I’ve been dressing the way I have for years.”
