Billie Eilish Opens Up About Her Sexuality: "I've Always Been Attracted To Girls"

In a revealing conversation, the acclaimed musician shared insights into her journey of self-discovery and coming to terms with her sexuality.

Following her monumental triumph at the Oscars, where she clinched her second award, Billie Eilish is set to unveil new music next month. The songstress made a splash at this year’s Coachella, surprising fans with a preview of her upcoming track, “Lunch.”

In the lyrics of the song, she muses, “I could eat that girl for lunch / And she dances on my tongue / Tastes like she might be the one,” hinting at themes of queer identity and desire. Speaking as the cover star for Rolling Stone’s latest issue, Billie delved into her personal journey, particularly her experience of coming out, while promoting her forthcoming album, “HIT ME HARD AND SOFT.”

“‘Lunch’ was a pivotal part of my journey to authenticity,” Billie shared during the interview. “I began writing it before fully embracing my feelings for women and completed it afterward. I’ve harbored feelings for girls for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until last year that I truly acknowledged my desire for intimacy with women. Opening up about my sexuality wasn’t something I had planned on, but it’s frustrating that it became a focal point.”

Throughout her career, Billie Eilish has maintained privacy regarding her romantic life, a choice that deserves respect (note: celebrities are entitled to their privacy too, folks). However, in November 2023, she offered glimpses into her attraction to women in Variety’s Power of Women issue. “I hold a deep admiration for women,” she expressed. “I’m drawn to them, both emotionally and physically. They play significant roles in my life, and I find them inherently beautiful and captivating.”

At the subsequent Variety Hitmakers event, Billie admitted that she hadn’t intended to publicly address her sexuality initially. “I assumed it was evident,” she remarked. “I’ve always questioned the need for labels. Why can’t we simply exist without categorization? I’ve refrained from discussing it for a long time. My intention wasn’t to make a statement. It just slipped out, unintentionally.”

Following the event, Billie took to Instagram to address the situation, expressing frustration with being outed in a public setting. “Thanks, Variety, for the award, but why focus on my sexuality when there are more pressing matters?” she wrote in her post. “I’m attracted to both boys and girls. It’s nobody’s business, really. Let’s move on, shall we?”

Reflecting on the incident in her Rolling Stone interview, Billie acknowledged her overreaction. “Suddenly, the world had labeled me without my consent,” she reflected. “Nobody should feel pressured to conform to any identity, and the obsession with labels is exhausting. Discovering one’s sexuality is a journey, and it’s unfair how the internet pressures you into defining yourself prematurely.”

“It’s taken me years to understand myself fully,” Billie added. “And honestly, it’s amusing because I’m only now realizing what everyone else seemed to know all along.”
