Billie Eilish just came out about her sexuality

Billie Eilish is now taking pride in liking women. In a new cover story for Rolling Stone magazine , the singer opens up about her sexuality and shares that "Lunch," a new song from her upcoming third studio album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, is about her love for A girl's crush. According to the interviewer, she "compared sex with her to gobbling up food."

"This song is actually a part of helping me become who I am," Eilish said. "I wrote some of it before I even did anything with girls, and then the rest. I'd loved girls my whole life, but I just didn't get it—until last year, I realized I wanted to My face in my vagina."

However, Eilish, who doesn't put any labels on herself, clarified that she "never" planned to speak publicly about her sexuality and said it was "really frustrating" when it became a topic.

In November, she told Variety that she was "really attracted" to women. A month later, on the red carpet at Variety 's Hitmakers event, she was asked if she planned to "come out." "No, I didn't," she replied. "But I kind of thought, 'Isn't it obvious?'"

After the event, Eilish criticized the publication for focusing too much on her sexuality. "Thank you Variety for honoring me with the award and letting me walk on the red carpet at 11am instead of talking about anything else important," she wrote on Instagram Stories. "I like boys and girls please leave me alone who cares Woolen cloth."

Months later, Rolling Stone reported that Eilish believed she was "overreacting" to the incident. She even liked reporters who asked questions, allowing her to give safe answers. "I went into Billie Eilish interview mode, [like], 'Oh, I don't care. Yeah, I'll just say whatever. Isn't it obvious?'" she said. "Then I was like, 'Wait a minute. This isn't obvious to me.'

However, considering she is a 22-year-old woman, she still feels "used" by these issues. “I know people who didn’t know their sexuality or didn’t feel comfortable with it until they were in their 40s, 50s, 60s,” she said. "It takes a while to find yourself and I think it's really unfair that the internet forces you to talk about who you are and what you are."

Eilish previously denied speculation about her sexuality in a 2021 interview with Elle . "Oh yeah, that's other people's business, right? No," she said. "Where's the man's energy? I just want to make a song and just keep making songs. I've never said, 'Hey, pay attention to my life.'"
