Billie Eilish has become the style icon for many tweens and teens. Her distinct style sets her apart from other pop artists. Her approach to clothing can only be described as a fusion of punk, high-fashion, and voluminous silhouettes.
However, the real reason behind Billie’s divergent style is pretty upsetting. In a new campaign video for Calvin Klein, Billie Eilish spoke her truth for the first time. “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 ass, she got a fat ass.’ Nobody can say any of that because they don’t know.”
The duo enjoys working together and believes that the songs written are relatable for Billie. Finneas stated, “I want to write a song that I think she’ll relate to and enjoy singing and empathize with the lyrics and make her own. And if I’m writing a song with Billie, I’m just trying to help her tell whatever story she’s trying to tell, bounce ideas off of her, listen to her ideas."
Billie Eilish’s brother, Finneas, has a significant influence on the music sung by Billie. Her brother does not only produce her songs, but he also writes music for her and often collaborates with her while she writes. In her current album, ‘When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ Finneas produced all fourteen tracks.
