At a concert in Miami last Monday, Billie Eilish surprised her fans with a spoken-word interlude. The singer, for whom baggy clothes have become a calling card, took off her shirt and speech about sexism and body shaming.
Fan videos from the Miami show captured Billie’s pre-recorded spoken word video, which the singer played on a widescreen.
Some viewers shared the full text of Eilish’s speech, which she began by mumbling,
“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.”
