Eilish bashes mag­a­zine for edited photo

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected - — LOS AN­GE­LES TIMES

Bil­lie Eilish, known for wear­ing oversized cloth­ing to shield her­self from ob­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion, just ap­peared top­less on a cover of Ny­lon mag­a­zine – and she was as shocked as any­one.

The 17-year-old singer blasted Ny­lon Ger­many in the com­ment sec­tion below the heav­ily edited photo, which the brand posted to its Instagram ear­lier this week. The cover de­picts Eilish as a bald, “Ex Machina”-es­que fig­ure with bare shoul­ders and a shiny, fu­tur­is­tic glow, hail­ing her as a ris­ing star and digital prodigy. But the “Bad Guy” artist was not pleased.

“What … is this, “Eilish wrote. “I was never ap­proached by ny­lon about this piece what­so­ever. i did not know it was hap­pen­ing nor did any­one on my team. this is not even a real pic­ture of me. i had ab­so­lutely no cre­ative in­put.”

The pop star went on to scold Ny­lon for run­ning a seem­ingly nude im­age of a mi­nor. Eilish has pre­vi­ously said that she prefers to sport baggy ap­parel to cover her­self, and be­came the sub­ject of a Twit­ter storm ear­lier this year when some users cir­cu­lated a rare photo of her in a form-fitting shirt.
