Billie Eilish has to be one of the most influential musicians of recent times. She rarely sticks to the status quo. It is what makes her so unique and fresh as an artist. Also, it is what has enabled her to become one of the most prominent musicians in the world.
Furthermore, the ‘Bad Guy’ singer recently spoke in an interview about her style.
She said. “I went through a period of that, yeah, of wanting to be like everyone else, of wanting a locker,” the 18-year-old shared in a chat with British GQ magazine. “I would only go to so-called trendy shops and wear what was considered by some as trendy. It was a very uncomfortable year. Also, because I wasn’t rich, and a lot of my friends were rich, that was very hard to deal with. But that went away pretty fast; no idea why. Since then, I’ve never felt comfortable looking like other people.”
Well, I suppose that gives us a clear insight into what motives her edgy image. Also, for us, it is refreshing to see an artist who stays well away from following the normality of the industry. I am sure many new artists will be taking note as it is one sure-fire way of creating a brand which stands out in a distinct light.
She also went onto say “Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman.”
