BILLIE EILISH HER BODY SHAMING SPEECH IS EVERYTHING EVERYBODY NEEDS TO HEAR!!!!!!! I wish I was a teen when she came up she would’ve given me so much strength! luckily my gen had Demi Lovato for topics like that ???— NAAZ (@BitsOfNaaz) March 10, 2020
I'll fix the caption "@billieeilish delivered a powerful message about body positivity during an interlude at her concert in Miami while looking Goddessly beautiful." #NotMyResponsibility https://t.co/cHwS1Hx6WI— Katana (@findingmilo) March 10, 2020
Monday’s show isn’t the first time Eilish has spoken about her disdain for the sexualization of women’s bodies. In a 2019 Calvin Klein campaign, Billie said she chooses to wear baggy clothes in order to keep her body private. “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. 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,’” says Billie. “No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”Eilish’s sold-out show in Miami included some famous fans in the audience. Sharing a picture taken backstage, Jennifer Lopez shared a snap of her 12-year-old daughter Emme, an aspiring singer, sandwiched in between her an Eilish. Yes, it's slightly cooler than our first concert experience.

Eilish’s 53-date North American, Latin American, Asian and European tour features her close friend and Canadian artist Jessie Reyez as the opening act. The Brampton native also shared a picture from backstage at Monday’s show, captioning the image with one of her favourite lyrics from the five-time Grammy winner.

Fans who met Eilish during night one of the tour’s meet and greet shared pictures and details on social media, revealing that part of the $275 VIP access includes a pair of Billie Eilish’s Beats headphones, which retail around $200. A body positive popstar who doesn’t take her fans and their money for granted? We bow down to Billie Eilish.[video_embed id='1913978']BEFORE YOU GO: It may be called 'American Idol', but Canada is well represented [/video_embed]
