Billie Eilish hits back at criticism in her brand new short film Not My Responsibility. The motivational flick was originally made to be a tour visual for her When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go World Tour but has been put online following cancellation. Here are 4 of our favourite, inspiring quotes from the flick!
“Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with?”
Billie asks viewers to think about a pivotal question: Are you defined by your body? This question comes after Billie has been scrutinised for her choice of baggy streetwear in order to cover up. In an interview with Vogue Australia, the star claimed her choice of clothing “gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like.” This serves as a reminder to all: We are not defined by our physicality or what society expects our bodies to look like. We are so much more!
“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut.”
Following the extensive focus on Billie’s clothing choice in pop culture, this line comes as a message to viewers. Women can do whatever they want with their bodies, whether that be covering up or revealing skin- it does not make them any less of a woman! We, at The Honey POP, stan the message of confidence being put across here! 🥰
“If I wear more, or wear less, who decides what that makes me?”
Once again comes the important and uplifting reminder to viewers: you are your own maker, and only you can decide who you are. Billie makes it clear within this line and throughout the video that society will always judge you, however, their judgements do not reflect who you are no matter what choices you make!
“Is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
Billie finishes her flick with a message of self-confidence. It is not her responsibility to care for negative assumptions! This carefree attitude is something we should all adopt and remember. You are so much more than the words said about you! 🤩
In conclusion, we stan the message queen Billie puts across to viewers.
