Billie Eilish's oversized wardrobe has become a signature style for the superstar, but there's a reason why the 17-year-old dresses as she does. In her recent video for Calvin Klein, the star said that she dons bigger clothing, so that people can't sexualize or judge her. "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath," she explained. "Nobody can be like, '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."

Unfortunately, Eilish's fear recently unraveled on Twitter when one user shared a rare photo of the star in a tight tank top with the caption: "Billie Eilish is THICK." Needless to say, the the post did not please many of her fans, who defended the singer and rationalized just why she wears oversized clothing to begin with. Scroll on below to see some responses to the Eilish controversy.
