Billie Eilish has claimed she lost about 100,000 Instagram followers after posting a revealing photo of herself wearing a corset.

In a new interview with ELLE, 19-year-old Eilish said: “I lost 100,000 followers just because of the boobs. People are afraid of big breasts.’

It seems the photo she’s referencing is a post where she’s seen in a tomato-print corset showing off her cleavage, which is certainly a far cry from the baggy clothes fans were used to seeing her.

“People hold these memories and have an attachment. But it’s very degrading,” she said of losing followers because of her new, more mature image.

The singer, who graced the October 2021 fashion magazine in a plunging dress studded with crystals, also explained that those who criticize her image don’t seem to understand that it’s not that deep.

‘I recently decided to wear a tank top. It wasn’t even a challenging shirt. But I know people will say, ‘Holy f**k, she dresses sexy and tries to make a statement.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not. It’s 500 degrees and I just want to wear a tank top!” she told the publication.

Billie dyed her famous sour green locks blonde last year, making her feel “a new person,” she says.

“I couldn’t go anywhere with that hair because it was so obvious to me. I wanted anonymity,” she explained. ‘I went to a park with a friend’ [after going blonde], and I thought, ‘No, I can’t take my hood off!’

“But my friend said, ‘Don’t worry, you’re fine. Nothing’s going to happen.’ And I took off my hood, and I felt like a new person. I had no goal of ‘This is going to make everyone think differently about me’. I’ve had different colored hair and vibes for everything I’ve ever done.

“I just wanted to make a song once, and then I kept making songs. I never said, “Hey, watch my life.” All my friends know I don’t want to see one [the negative chatter]. When people send me something mean, it hurts my soul.’

“I really wish there was a way to avoid it. Literally delete my account but still keep in touch with the fans. I want to be able to have both, but not you,’ she mused.

Billie’s second album, Happier Than Ever, debuted at number one worldwide upon release, with the star directing her own videos.

‘The album came from a lot of self-reflection. Happier than ever, I’m really just dealing with trauma…making this album was cathartic and liberating,” Billie said. “I’m a very visual person, and music videos have always been my favorite form of artistry, ever since I was a kid.

“Since the beginning, almost all my videos were my own ideas. I just didn’t know I could direct them. It’s hard to translate an idea you have in your head – to make someone else understand it – and then bring it to life. Sometimes you just have to do it yourself, even if it’s difficult.’

Eilish was filmed in a dreamy sequence escaping a flooding house for her latest video.

She said of the experience: ‘Water was my biggest fear – I was terrified of drowning and having my head put under water. But I’m a daredevil. I want to do everything I’m afraid of.

“Half of the video was shot underwater. So I’ve pretty much conquered my fear of water. It was damn crazy, dude.’
