Billie Eilish remains one of the most heavily followed pop-artists on social media. The 18-year-old music sensation has not only shared controversial personal preferences and biases (ranging from her clothing to her political views) but has now done the unthinkable!
Although the current trend on social media has been primarily focused on showing off one’s Halloween costume, this “Bad Guy” singer is not having it! She straight up told her viewers in the post that she was not going to show anyone her costume!
Not Showing The Costume!
While it isn’t unheard of to not show one’s costume online, what makes this post so odd is that Billie went out of her way to openly tell her followers that she wouldn’t be giving anyone even the smallest glimpse of her outfit.
With no preface to this post, it seems like she simply enjoys teasing her fans with something that she clearly doesn’t want to give them! (Or does she?)
She captioned the post saying the following:
“no i’m not showing u the costume” (Billie)
The Fans Respond
That being said, she did include a blurry picture of herself, with many people questioning if she’s wearing her costume there or not. Here are just a few of the numerous comments left on her page.
“EVERYONE WHO LIKES THIS COMMENT IS FOR HER TO SHOWING THE COSTUME” (Commentator) (This comment now has over 46,000 likes!)
“makeup artists are shaking” (Commentator)
“BILLIE EILISH U BETTER POST THAT S**T” (Commentator)
“it’s okay guys Billie doesn’t wanna show us her costume cause she knows she’s so gorgeous we’d go into heart attack” (Commentator)
“BIL U BETTER SHOW US YOUR WHOLE COSTUME” (Commentator)
“Look if she doesn’t want to show the outfit she doesn’t have to with the stuff that’s already going on are you guys happy let her do her thing she doesn’t have to show anything ?” (Commentator)
Billie has yet to reveal whether she was kidding or whether she was really serious about not showing her costume. Her post comes about right as Justin and Hailey Bieber posted their costumes on Instagram. You pretty much have to see those pics to believe them since Justin literally dresses up as a Toy Story figure.
Also, Billie’s post comes right after she performed a live-stream concert about a week ago. The fans really enjoyed that performance, so she is essentially still riding the hype train from that last appearance.
Billie Wasn’t Always Confident
Billie told GQ Magazine that she hasn’t always exuded the confidence she does today. Her ability to stand her ground on her political views and on her public image has quickly become a heavily followed topic.
“‘Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona’”
“‘I went through a period of wanting to be like everyone else. That went away pretty fast’”
Her unique attitude towards entertainment and social media influencing are what attracts so many to love her, even when she doesn’t show her Halloween costumes!
