As reported, during the opening night of her “Where Do We Go?” tour, Billie Eilish played a short film during her show, which made a powerful statement about her body and body shaming in general. The singer stripped down to her bra, and with the visual came these words:

“You have opinions
about my opinions,
about my music,
about my clothes,
about my body.
Some people hate what I wear,
some people praise it,
some people use it to shame others,
some people use it to shame me,
but I feel you watching
always
and nothing I do goes unseen.
So while I feel your stares,
your disapproval
or your sigh of relief,
if I lived by them,
I’d never be able to move.
Would you like me to be smaller?
Weaker?
Softer?
Taller?
Would you like me to be quiet?
Do my shoulders provoke you?
Does my chest?
Am I my stomach?
My hips?
The body I was born with,
is it not what you wanted?
If I wear what is comfortable,
I am not a woman.
If I shed the layers,
I’m a slut.
Though you’ve never seen my body,
you still judge it
and judge me for it.
Why?
We make assumptions about people
based on their size.
We decide who they are,
we decide what they’re worth.
If I wear more,
If I wear less,
who decides what that makes me?
What that means?
If my value based only on your
perception?
Or is your opinion of me
not my responsibility?”

Because her tour is canceled, Billie released the video for all her fans to enjoy. Watch Billie Eilish’s “Not My Responsibility” below.
