Billie Eilish criticizes “f-king bozos” online, calling her “sold” for embracing her femininity.
In deleted posts she shared via her Instagram Stories over the weekend, the “Bad Guy” singer appealed to “true idiots” who constantly need to comment on her evolving style, saying “let the women exist!”
Eilish, 21, wrote in part, “I spent the first 5 years of my career being absolutely DESTROYED by you idiots for being childish and dressing the way I did, and I was constantly told that I would be sexier if I acted like a woman.”
“And now that I’m comfortable enough to wear something a little feminine or appropriate, I HAVE CHANGED and sold a lot.. and ‘what happened to her’ because that’s not the same thing she is like the others.”
He later told his followers that “it can be BOTH”, adding, “FUN FACT! Did you know that women are versatile!!!!!!!! Shocking? Believe it or not, women can be interested in many things.”
As for that “sale” comment? Eilish, who recently broke up with singer Jesse Rutherford, gave the haters the biggest rounds of applause, writing, “You guys hate my absolute c-k and balls, you women, ass freaks.”
Eilish’s fans have clearly seen her style evolve over the years, from her signature loose outfits and colorful hair era to her more feminine and glamorous red carpet look recently.
“Honestly, I loved her previous style, it was so nice to see a girl with the tomboy style that became so famous, but it was too much to accuse her of selling out because she doesn’t style herself that way anymore,” wrote one fan on Twitter. Latest posts by the singer.
Another said, “First of all, it should probably be noted that the reason she dresses ‘boyish’ is because she is underage, trying to hide her body from perverted men.”
A third said, “I remember the first time it was shown without a hoodie. The comments were so disgusting and scary. Women like us can’t do anything without people attacking or sexualizing us, my goodness.”

Eilish’s most recent red carpet appearance was at the 2023 Met Gala in New York City earlier this month where she gave her own goth interpretation of the “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty” theme.
The “Everything I Wanted” singer wore a sheer Simone Rocha dress over a black satin Agent Provocateur bodice – a drastic change from her famous tomboy look when she entered the music industry in 2015.
“I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes,” she explained for a campaign video for Calvin Klein in 2019.
“No one can have an opinion because they haven’t seen the gold, you know?” he continued.
“No one can be like, ‘Oh, he’s thin-to-thick, he’s not thin-to-thick, he’s got a straight ass, his ass is fat’. Nobody can say such a thing because they don’t know.”
