    During a recent red carpet event for Variety’s Hitmakers event, Billie Eilish opened up about her sexual orientation. When asked about coming out, Billie said, “No, I didn’t. But I kind of thought, ‘Wasn’t it obvious’? I didn’t realize people didn’t know.”

    Billie Eilish continued, “I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, ‘Why can’t we just exist’? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it. Whoops.” After break up with Jesse Rutherford, Billie was seen cozying up with queer actress, Ava Capri, which fueled speculations about her sexuality.

    Billie Eilish, during an interview with Variety, said that she is physically attracted to women. She said, “I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life. I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.” Now, as per Pink News, due to her statement, the ‘lonely’ artist has lost 100k followers on Instagram.

    Billie Eilish recently attended Variety’s Power of Women event. During the event, she gave a moving speech about her gender identity. Billie told the audience that it is hard to be a woman out there. She said, “I have never truly felt like a woman. And I’ve spent a lot of my life not feeling like I fit in in to being a woman.”

    Eilish added, “For a couple years, because of that insecurity, I became almost like very ‘pick me’ about it and I’d be like, ‘Well, I’m not like other girls ‘cause I don’t do this and this.’”

    She continued, “I’ve grown to be very resentful of that period of time because I’m so much more interested in being like other girls, because other girls are f**king tight and I love women.”
