Billie Eilish outsmarts body-shaming sexist trolls with her brilliant choice of clothing.

America's biggest female pop stars always have sex appeal. Whether it's their decision or their manager's, the most popular pop stars have always shown a bit of skin.

However, 17-year-old singer Billie Eilish, best known for her hit songs "Bad Guy" and "Bellyache," hasn't buckled to industry pressure to show off her body to sell records.

In a recent 30-second ad for Calvin Klein, the singer shares why she only wears baggy clothing.

“I never want the world to know everything about me," Eilish said in the ad. “I mean, that's why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath, you know?"


“Nobody can be like, 'Oh, she's slim-thick, she's not slim-thick, she's got a flat ass, she's got a fat ass. No one can say any of that, because they don't know."

Billie's decision to keep her body under wraps is empowering, especially in a world where young girls are bombarded with touched-up images of women's bodies in magazines and on Instagram.

It's also a strong stance to take as an artist. She's not selling sex, she's selling her talent.

Being a celebrity must suck, because you can't talk about personal decisions without everyone feeling they need to have their say. However, some celebrities just don't care what the haters think and are going to live their lives how they see fit. Nobody does it better than actress and activist Jameela Jamil.

Earlier this year, Jamil revealed she had an abortion seven years ago. "I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn't want, and wasn't ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel," she wrote on Twitter. Jamil decided to reveal her abortion after Georgia's controversial fetal heartbeat abortion law was passed.

Now, Jamil says she's living her best life, because her decision was not a "mistake" – even if other people see it that way.

"Receiving THOUSANDS of messages about how I made a mistake having an abortion 7 years ago and how I must be a miserable person. I am in fact a happy, thriving multi millionaire, madly in love, with free time, good sleep and a wonderful career and life. But thanks for checking," the "Good Place" actress wrote on Twitter.
