In a recent interview, Billie Eilish discussed her sexual orientation on Saturday, at the annual Hitmakers Brunch hosted by Variety. In response to the question of whether or not she would want to come out in the Power of Women edition of the magazine, Eilish admitted during the interview that she is a member of the LGBT community. A singer who had previously won a Grammy Award saw a loss of more than 100,000 followers on Instagram after “coming out” as homosexual.
It has been reported that the singer of Bad Guy has lost 117,750 followers over the course of the previous thirty days, with the bulk of those fans unfollowing her on December 3. This information comes from Latestly, which reports that Eilish lost 40,428 followers on Instagram the day after her interview on the red carpet. According to the article, Eilish said that she is “attracted to women.”
Despite this, the singer, who was 21 years old at the time, considered it to be “obvious.” “No, I did not do that.” Having said that, I had the impression that I ought to have been more aware. “I had no idea that people were ignorant,” Eilish said in the interview over the course of the conversation. The singer of “You Should See Me in a Crown” continued by stating that she does not believe that “coming out” is a concept that should have a literal meaning. The only thing that comes to my mind is, “Why can’t we just be?” I have been doing this for quite some time, but I have never brought it up before. And then she continued, “Whoops.”
It was also said that she was taken aback by the story, and she stated, “I came out today, I believe, after viewing the article! Okay, that’s quite cool. When it was all said and done, however, she experienced a feeling of relief that was palpable to everyone. On the other hand, I find it an exciting experience because, well, I think that people were ignorant of it, but it is still good that they are. Talking about it makes me feel so uncomfortable! Eilish, on the other hand, told the girls that she was there for them.
Eilish voiced her disapproval of Variety on Instagram after the release of the most current edition of the magazine, which occurred one month ago. In addition to expressing her appreciation to the publication for bestowing upon her an award, she expressed her displeasure with the fact that they had “outed” her on the “red carpet.” She added, “Thanks Variety for my award and for also outing me on a red carpet at eleven in the morning instead of talking about anything else that matters, I like boys and girls leave me alone about it, please literally who cares stream ‘what was I made for,'” accompanied by a carousel of images.
