good piece of Billie EilishHer fandom seems to disavow her – all over what they see as false solicitation… but, honestly, it’s just a lot of assumptions and expectations.
If you see the hashtag “#youlikegirls” trending on Sunday evening and swarming… I might have seen a whole bunch of people in my arms because of Billy’s recent social media activity/love life, with many saying they ended up with her and her music because they consider her problematic.
Long story short… Bailey has recently been romantically linked to actor Matthew Tyler Force, with whom she has been seen on what some have taken as dates — including last week, when they were spotted resting at Disneyland. Some describe it directly as BF.
This kind of cast threw some fans into an episode in and of itself, apparently, as there seems to be some speculation that Bailey might have been on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. We can’t say why people thought that – other than jumping on the good old conclusion.
Anyway… some of those same fans were even more confused with her latest music show, which they say is sending mixed signals. It’s Billy’s music video for her new single “Lost Cause” which sees her dancing in a somewhat suggestive way with other women.
The real gun smoked in the sexual seduction affair – fans insisted – was a follow-up message Billy launched after this video, which included the caption “I love girls.”
This was seen by some as playing Bailey with her fans, as well as preconceived notions about her sexuality – which many have described as maliciously counterproductive/misleading. Basically, they suggest it does more harm than help the LGBTQ+ movement…during the pride months, no less. This, in addition to her obvious interest in men, is causing an uproar.
We’ll take the pulpit here for a minute and just say…Billy doesn’t owe anyone anything when it comes to all this speculation and expectations that have been pushed into her — not before, not now, not even in the future (that is, if she doesn’t want to).
As many have rightly pointed out, there is nothing inherently sexual about Billy dancing in the music video – and her comment couldn’t be more than promoting her song.
Whether or not Billy is on the LGBT spectrum… who knows?!? But also, who cares – it’s none of anyone’s business – so please… give her a great rest.
