Eilish was about to perform “All the Good Girls Go to Hell" but played a video of her taking off her hoodie and blouse in order to bring awareness to body shaming. This was also made to address “assumptions about people based on their size."

“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it,” she says in the clip. “Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me. But I feel you watching, always. And nothing I do goes unseen.”

Eilish is known for wearing baggy clothes which has drawn many people to discuss her body and if he's insecure about it. This video was the perfect way to address the critics. She added that she "would never be able to move" if she put stock into the opinions about about her music, clothes, and body.”

“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet?” Eilish added. “Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?”

Eilish previously cited how she had a "toxic relationship with her body when she was younger. She is currently 18-years-old. It even got to a point where she battled depression at shockingly, even wanted to harm herself at times due to this toxicity.

“I just hated my body. I would have done anything to be in a different one,” Eilish said to Vogue in a new interview. “I really wanted to be a model, really bad, and I was chubby and short.”

The video Eilish displayed in Miami was well put together and did a great job of addressing what many women in the world go through on a daily basis. Society always expects women to conform to certain ways of dressing and that should never be the case. Women should be able to feel comfortable in whatever they want to put on without being subjected to criticism.

Eilish has set herself up for an even epic 2020. Her tour continues in Orlando tonight and runs all the way through September 7 as it concludes in Jakarta, Indonesia.
