Billie Eilish left from her remarkable look by making a video during her show Monday that gave her stripping down to her bra and saying something about appearances.

On the first stop of her North America visit, in Miami, the “Trouble maker” artist played the video on a screen between sets. It showed her unfastening her sweater and stripping off her tank top. The video was joined by Eilish’s voice tending to reactions about her body and decision of loose attire.

“You have assessments about my suppositions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body,” Eilish says in the video. “A few people detest what I wear, a few people acclaim it, a few people use it to disgrace others, a few people use it to disgrace me. However, I feel you viewing, consistently, and nothing I do goes concealed.”

The 18-year-old’s monolog noted that on the off chance that she responded to all the criticism, she would “always be unable to move.”

“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet?” she says. “Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?”

She continues: “If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it and judge me for it.”

The Grammy-winning artist is famous for wearing baggy clothes, a conscious fashion choice.

“I never want the world to know everything about me,” she said in an ad for Calvin Klein last year. “I mean, that’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know?”

She continued, “Nobody can be like, ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she’s got a flat (butt), she’s got a fat (butt).’ No one can say any of that, because they don’t know.”
