What that means? Is my value based only on your perception?

Billie Eilish has now released her short film titled "NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY" on YouTube.

Eilish is known for her baggy clothing and spoke out about being sexualized for her body in a Calvin Klein commercial from past year. In the video-produced and written via her, she takes at the body-shamers and haters that occur always, judgments about your physique, your number of clothes and in addition their reviews.

Continuing to point out some of the criticism she has faced, Eilish adds: "Would you like me to be smaller?" Eilish asks. "You'll have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body". I'm in my abdomen?

At the beginning of the three-minute, 40-second feature - which dropped unexpectedly on May 26 - the Bad Guy singer is seen fully clothed and hooded as she stands alone in a dark room.

"Sometimes I get this response from parents like, 'Thank you for dressing the way you do so my daughter doesn't dress like a slut, ' and I'm like, 'Whoa! Does my chest and my stomach and my hips?" We decide who they are.

Premier League to resume with midweek fixtures on June 17
The league announced a provisional restart date of June 17 for the 2019-20 season providing all safety requirements are met. Playing the two outstanding games first will allow all the clubs to fall in line with the number of games played.

Billie Eilish has unveiled a new short film, Not My Responsibility.

Some people are using the hashtag to share full-bodied photos that they said they don't normally post.

Billie Eilish continues to deliver her monologue about judging others based on their size and on what they wear. "Or is your opinion of me #notmyresponsibility".

"Though you've never seen my body, you still touch it and judge me for it. Why?"

Earlier this year she also gave an insight into the way she feels about her own body image. "I would have done anything to be in a different one", she told Vogue in her March cover interview. Back in April, in conversation with Dazed, she recalled an instance of slut-shaming after posting a picture of herself in a bathing suit. There were comments like, 'I don't like her any more because as soon as she turns 18 she's a whore.' Like, dude. I wanna show my body.
