• Billie Eilish recently discussed her sexuality
  • An interview with 'Variety' magazine has her displeased
  • THIS is what Billie said about being "outed"

The "Bad Guy" hitmaker recently threw shade at Variety, accusing them of "outing" her sexuality rather than focusing on her musical achievements. This bombshell revelation came after a candid Variety interview hinted at her attraction to both men and women.

Billie wants to set the record straight

During the glitzy Hitmakers awards, when the cameras rolled and the questions flew, Billie was unexpectedly probed about her sexuality. Her response? A sarcastic "thanks" to 'Variety' on Instagram, served with a side of exasperation: "Thanks Variety for my award and also outing me on a red carpet at 11am instead of talking to me about anything else that matters."

Billie's message was crystal clear: "I like boys and girls leave me alone about it please literally who cares." The star, known for her haunting vocals and edgy style, emphasized her disdain for the outdated concept of "coming out," questioning why individuals must publicly label their sexuality.

Speaking on the red carpet at a 'Variety' event in Los Angeles on Saturday, the 21-year-old Grammy award-winner said she didn’t want to make a big deal out of revealing her sexual preferences. "I didn't realise people didn't know," she confessed during the red carpet interrogation, yet she also expressed her belief that one's private life should remain just that—private.

"Why can't we just exist?" Billie mused, challenging the societal pressures to declare one's sexual orientation.

"But I saw the article, and I was like, ‘Oh, I guess I came out today.’ OK, cool. It’s exciting to me because I guess people didn’t know, but it’s cool that they know," she said. "I am for the girls," she added.

In the past, the singer spoke about her attraction to women in Variety's The Power of Women issue. She also talked about her apprehension that other women don't like her.

Billie is just living her life

"I never really felt like I could relate to girls very well," she stated. "I love (women) so much. I love them as people. I'm attracted to them as people. I'm attracted to them for real. I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life. I'm physically attracted to them. But I'm also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence," Eilish added.

Last month, during an event, the singer-songwriter spoke about how she was "proud" of her womanhood despite having "spent a lot of my life not feeling like I fit in to being a woman."

"I think for a couple years because of that insecurity, I became almost very 'pick me' about it, and I would be like, 'Oh, I'm not like other girls because I don't do this and this," she said. "I've grown to be very resentful of that period of time because I'm so much more interested in being like other girls because other girls are f****** tight, and I love women."

Although sharing details with the world, Eilish noted, "It’s exciting to me because I guess people didn’t know, so it’s cool that they know. But ooh, I’m nervous talking about it." Explaining how she is still scared of girls, Eilish will take the stage once again as a performer on December 16 when Kate McKinnon hosts 'Saturday Night Live.'
