Eilish bashes magazine for edited photo
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.
