I thought I remembered reading about body image issues, but that was probably me misremembering then.

Those pictures look great and I'm happy that she's happy with the way she looks in them. They look kinda processed, but not obviously photoshopped in terms of body shape or whatever.

However, if my daughter one day idolizes Billie Eilish, which she very well might, I'd rather she sees pictures like the one below.

Is she the new Lorde?

Second album seems underwhelming. I feel like she might become increasingly less interesting to the general public while staying relatively well respected to the press and core fan group.

Where are the popstars of the future, you know, someone with some staying power?

I don't think any major record companies would really get behind someone that looks so facially androgynous 30 years ago. It wasn't as accepted by the mainstream back then.

So, we probably would've never heard about her if she was putting out this material 30 years ago.

I’m not really into her music, but I like how she’s so open about her personality and Tourettes Syndrome. I see this as a thing among newer pop artists, that they give people with these kinds of issues a voice. I really like that. It’s nothing that should be taboo.
