Billie Eilish has slammed NYLON magazine for publishing a manipulated “shirtless” photo.
The 17-year-old shocked her audience on social media when they realised she had no creative participation in NYLON‘s three-version magazine cover that portrays the singer bald, shirtless and robotic.
Taking to social media, Billie wrote, “What the f*** is this s*** … I was never approached by NYLON about this piece whatsoever. I did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team. This is not even a real picture of me. I had absolutely no creative input … You’re gonna make a picture of me shirtless … that’s not real … at 17 … and make it the cover,”
Continuing her response to the covers, “Even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… I did not consent in any way … ANNNDDD YOU’RE GONNA REMOVE ALL MY F****** HAIR?”
In response to Billie’s social media post, NYLON has said, “For this cover, it was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie Eilish.
It was only ever our intention to honour Billies impact and her work by creating this avatar which is part of a cover series highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists.
This avatar is a piece of 3D artwork created in dedication to her achievements and the positive effects she has had on millions around the globe – including us.”
unCrazed is told that the Eilish camp plans to respond with a cease and desist plus an associated lawsuit for using the name and likeness of Billie.
