The 21-year-old pop star believed that her body was "gaslighting" her during her adolescent years but in more recent years has tried to accept things as they are.

She said: "Going through my teenage years of hating myself and all that stupid s***. A lot of it came from my anger towards my body

How mad I was at how much pain it’s caused me, and what I’ve lost because of things that happened to it … I felt like my body was gaslighting me for years

To move past her body issues towards self-acceptance, Eilish explained how she “had to go through a process of being like, ‘My body is actually me. And it’s not out to get me.’”

She told Vogue: "I don’t want to be parading around like, Look at me! I’m making a difference. I just want to be making the difference and shutting the f*** up about it. 

Billie Eilish has been very open about her past body image struggles. In June 2022, the singer – who previously revealed she wears baggy clothes to avoid being sexualised

Despite having a “complicated” relationship with her own body, Eilish has still criticised body shamers for making negative comments about her appearance

When she was just 18 years old, Eilish shared a powerful message about body shaming during the first night of her “Where Do We Go Tour” in Miami, Florida.

She concluded: “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?”
