Billie Eilish discusses her sexuality

Billie Eilish kind of had her hand forced when a reporter on a red-carpet interview asked her up-front as to how she identified.

Despite the headlines that this generated, Billie tried to shut down the conversation but the speculation and discourse continued.

These days, Billie seems to be embracing her queer power.

For example, there's the song Lunch - a track that appears on Eilish's upcoming album, Hit Me Hard and Soft.

The song contains the lyrics:

“I could eat that girl for lunch, yeah she dances on my tongue/ Tastes like she might be the one, and I can never get enough, I could buy her so much stuff, it’s a craving, not a crush/ So now she’s coming up the stairs, so I’m pulling up a chair, and I’m putting up my hair.”

Discussing the song in media interviews, Eilish explained how the song has helped her embrace her sexuality.

“That song was actually part of what helped me become who I am, to be real...” said Eilish. “I wrote some of it before even doing anything with a girl, and then wrote the rest after. I’ve been in love with girls for my whole life, but I just didn’t understand — until, last year, I realised I wanted my face in a vagina."

“I was never planning on talking about my sexuality ever, in a million years..." added Eilish. "It’s really frustrating to me that it came up.”

Releasing on 17 May, Hit Me Hard and Soft will be Eilish's third studio album.
