Billie Eilish is just two dates into her massive, debut world tour. The 18-year-old took the opportunity while on stage in Miami to address her body shamers.

During the concert’s interlude, a pre-produced video of Eilish played on the screen as she narrated the scene.

“The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted? If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut.

She continued saying, “If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”.

Eilish had previously discussed her decision to wear baggie clothes on stage and in public to avoid objectification. In a Calvin Klein ad last year, Eilish said, “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat ass,’ ‘she’s got a fat ass.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”

Billie Eilish continues her North American tour until June, after which she will perform in Europe.
