Music superstar, Billie Eilish, got herself caught in quite a twisted story. Some of her fans just stepped back, allegedly disavowing her over a new controversy involving queerbaiting. Say what now?
On Sunday evening (June 13), the hashtag “#youlikegirls” was all over the social playground, and a bunch of people started to act weird. Many of them said they were done with Billie Eilish and her music because they find her quite problematic.
However, as complicated as it might seem, it’s just a lot of expectations and assumptions. Here’s what you need to know.
Billie vs Fans
Billie Eilish has recently been romantically linked to Matthew Tyler Vorce, an actor she started to hang out with a lot, including this past week. They were even spotted together at Disneyland, where the singer seemed to spark up some romance. Are they a couple?
Some might say so, believing Matthew is now Billie’s boyfriend, but fans know better, don’t they? You might believe that, but seeing Billie with a guy, caused some fans a severe meltdown. The reason?
There are some speculations that Billie might’ve been on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. That’s nothing but an old-fashioned conclusion-jumping, which makes things confused. And Billie’s new song isn’t helping at all. Some say it clearly sends some mixed signals that you can’t ignore. So, what’s left to believe?
The newest music video for Billie’s new single, “Lost Cause,” shows the star dancing quite suggestive with other women. And that’s not all. On her Instagram account, Billie posted a bunch of photos along with the caption “I love girls.” Does she really toy with her fans? Is Matthew just a friend?
Some people suggested that Billie’s behavior is more hurtful than helping in the LGBTQ+ movement. Others advise everyone to calm down and let Billie live her life the way she wants.
After all, we must admit that Billie doesn’t owe anyone anything. Of course, rumours are the worst, and seeing fans turn their back on their idol, is awful.
One thing is for sure. Until Billie doesn’t release a statement about her current relationship status, everything is possible.
