But just a few hours later, the artist took to Instagram to criticize the medium for making her talk about it.

Eilish, during the red carpet before the ceremony and when asked about it, confessed that she did not expect her statements in mid-November to be a “coming out.” “I thought… wasn’t that obvious?” he replies. «It’s exciting for me because I guess people didn’t know, so it’s cool that they know. But it makes me nervous to talk about it! », he continues with a laugh.

Later, the author of ‘What Was I Made For?’ He spoke out on social media and harshly criticized Variety: «Thank you, Variety, for giving me this award and also for outing me on a red carpet at eleven in the morning instead of talking to me about anything really important. I like men and women. Please leave me alone, who cares.

According to NME, Billie Eilish has lost followers on Instagram since speaking out about her sexuality a few weeks ago. The Social Blade platform would indicate that the artist has lost, since the publication of her interview with Variety on November 13, up to 100,000 of her followers.
