Billie Eilish is all covered up and talking about the reason she likes to dress in baggy clothing in Elle Magazine’s new issue.
The “Bad Guy” singer appears on the cover in actual clothing, a lot different than Nylon Germany, who ran a topless robot version of the hitmaker on their cover and caught Eilish’s wrath earlier this week.
The 17-year-old is one of the three artists featured on her own cover for Elle’s October issue.

Also, getting their own cover for the “Women in Music”-themed issue is Lizzo and Camila Cabello.
Eilish’s photo is unique in that she’s wearing an oversized jacket that’s completely zipped up. She’s showing no skin, expect for her face and hands.

Eilish’s oversized fashion choices are always a topic of conversation which makes her angry, and she explains why in the pages.
“The point is not: Hey, let’s go slut-shame all these girls for not dressing like Billie Eilish,” Eilish told Elle. “It makes me mad. I have to wear a big shirt for you not to feel uncomfortable about my boobs!”
Earlier this summer, her body was a major topic on Twitter after she was seen greeting fans in a tight shirt.
“My boobs were trending on Twitter!” Eilish said. “At number one! What is that?! Every outlet wrote about my boobs!”
“I look good in it,” the singer joked. “I was born with f—ing boobs, bro. I was born with DNA that was gonna give me big-ass boobs.”
Eilish explains that not all sizes are treated fairly and she thinks “it’s stupid.”
She also says when she turns 18 in a few months, she’d like to change her wardrobe up, but knows if she shows skin, it’ll get blown out of proportion.
“I’m gonna be a woman. I wanna show my body,” she said. “But I know it would be a huge thing. I know people will say, ‘I’ve lost all respect for her.’”
As The Blast reported, Eilish recently blasted Nylon Germany after they used a fake and manipulated cover to make her bald and topless.
She claimed the company never got permission to use her photo or even contacted her for creative input.
“i was never approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team. this is not even a real picture of me,” Eilish stated.
She also addressed the perceived sexualization of her in the same photo and said, “youre gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? thats not real?? at 17? and make it the cover????”
