Billie Eilish Latest song Controversy

On 2nd June 2021, Billie released her new song “Lost Cause”. In the music video, she is having fun, dancing, and partying with her girl gang. The song received excellent feedback and has over 44 million views on YouTube. But the controversy surrounds the song when people accused Eilish of fetishizing lesbian relationships. As seen in the song video, Eilish is kissing and enjoying other girls twerking.

“Bad Guy” singer recently posted some behind the scene pictures from “Lost Cause” on her Instagram, captioning “I love girls”. After this was posted, a lot of people assumed that Eilish is lesbian and she just came out. However, most of the audience thought that she was misleading the people and hurting the sentiments of LGBTQIA+ people.

Telling someone that you are from the LGBTQIA+ community even though you are not is absolutely wrong. Since June is Pride Month. Fans were angry that Billie was promoting her song during Pride Month. Yet still, nothing can be specified with the caption she wrote, but people are speculating a lot of things already.

Just the next day after posting the pictures, Billie was spotted at Disneyland with her rumored boyfriend Matthew Tyler Vorce. In the past, Billie has also stated that she has dated 2 men before coming to the limelight. No way it has ever been assumed that Billie is a part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Why so many people hating on Billie Eilish?

One of Billie’s action added fuel to the fire, when she liked a post of one of her fan that read,

“This fandom is so embarrassing sometimes like why would you go in someone’s comments and say something that you literally don’t know is true and something y’all LITERALLY MADE UP, sometimes y’all are so dumb. Some of you just need to learn how to mind your business.”

This post clearly describes Billie’s fanbase as embarrassing and stupid. Supporters were angry because Billie liked the post but did not appreciate her fans. Others admirers have also declared on Twitter that they would no longer purchase her stuff. And some have even claimed that they will burn any of her goods that they possess.

Why is her music controversial?

Prior to this, Eilish already had another scandal regarding homophobia. Back in 2019, she released the song “Wish You Were Gay”. Explaining that she had a crush on a guy but he didn’t love her back. Therefore she wanted him to be homosexual so that he wouldn’t be interested in her. Later that guy came out as gay and Billie jokingly said, “I wrote the song and made him fuck a dude. I’m fucking proud bro except not really though because I was really into him, like so into him. He’s so hot oh my God.”

In fact, people also dug Matthew Tyler Vorce’s past social media posts that are very offensive. In one of his Facebook posts, he has shamed Adele’s weight saying, “Adele looks like a British Miss Piggy”. He has also slut-shamed girls saying, “For the record, girls that say they are free spirits are just sluts”. He has also used the “n-word” in some of his posts.

After all this drama, Billie posted a selfie on Instagram with the caption saying “I’m tireddddddd”. Referencing what is happening right now. Eilish also lost more than 23k followers in just one day.

Now we just have to wait and watch if Billie will address this issue and speak about it or not.
