Billie Eilish created history with her debut on the cover of British Vogue. Her fans are digging her new blonde avatar, and are currently obsessing over the 19-year-old Grammy-winning artist new song titled, Your Power. While talking about the new song, Eilish told Vogue that the song is “an open letter to people who take advantage — mostly men.”
Your Power talks about abuse against people, and Eilish reveals that she has referred to her own abuser in the song as well. She asked fans “not just try to figure out who I’m talking about” in the song. She added, “Because it’s not about that … It’s really not at all about one person. You might think, ‘It’s because she’s in the music industry’ — no, dude. It’s everywhere.” She also revealed that her own abuser did not belong to the music fraternity.
The singer went on to say, “I don’t know one girl or woman who hasn’t had a weird experience, or a really bad experience. And men, too — young boys are taken advantage of constantly. People forget that you can grow up and realize shit was fucked up when you were younger.” She went on to talk about how no matter what, one can always be taken advantage of.
“It doesn’t matter who you are, what your life is, your situation, who you surround yourself with, how strong you are, how smart you are … You can always be taken advantage of. That’s a big problem in the world of domestic abuse or statutory rape — girls that were very confident and strong-willed finding themselves in situations where they’re like, ‘Oh my God, I’m the victim here?’
And it’s so embarrassing and humiliating and demoralizing to be in that position of thinking you know so much and then you realize, I’m being abused right now,” Eilish added. She went on to talk about body positivity as well during the interview as well.
