Billie Eilish disapproves of Nylon Germany’s Cover of her
Written by thereachfm on September 2, 2019
Billie Eilish has complained about a magazine cover that portrayed her as a shirtless, bald cyborg.
The singer was featured in Nylon Germany as one of three “digital prodigies” who are “redefining the future of being a teen superstar”.
The cover art, designed by Marcel C Wilkens, depicted her as a “supernatural fembot of the future”.
Eilish, who has said she wears loose-fitting clothes on stage and in her videos to avoid being sexualised, was particularly aggrieved that the digitally-created image showed her apparently topless.
Eilish is one of 2019’s biggest break-out stars, topping the charts in 19 countries, including the UK and US, with her goth-pop debut album When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go.
