Billie Eilish Slams Body Shaming in Powerful ‘Not My Responsibility’ Short Film - EpicNews

Billie Eilish unveiled her highly effective brief movie, Not My Responsibility. The video initially debuted throughout the singer’s Where Do We Go? world tour, which was postponed in March as a result of COVID-19 disaster.

In the affecting clip produced and written by Eilish, the singer is seen alone in the darkish carrying a black hoodie. As she recites her weak, revealing phrases that slam physique shaming and judgmental habits, she slowly disrobes earlier than sinking into water. She begins by questioning, “Do you know me?” and asks a sequence of questions on how individuals understand her and might want her to be and act. “Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you?”

“We make assumptions about people based on their size. We decide who they are. We decide what they’re worth,” she concludes in the clip. “If I wear more, if I wear less — who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”

On Tuesday, Eilish commemorated Peggy Lee’s 100th birthday throughout a panel alongside ok.d. lang and Black Pumas’ Eric Burton as a part of the Grammy Museum’s digital exhibit and occasions surrounding the late artist’s centennial birthday.
