Billie slams magazine for using her photo without consent
Los Angeles: Singer Billie Eilish has blasted a German magazine over its cover art that featured a bald and shirtless photo of the singer.
The 17-year-old singer posted a lengthy comment on Nylon Germany's official Instagram page after the magazine shared the cover art, designed by Marcel C Wilkens, which depicted her as a "supernatural fembot of the future".
"1. I was never approached by Nylon about this piece whatsoever. I did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team. 2. This is not even a real picture of me. I had absolutely no creative input. 3. You're gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? That's not real?? at 17? and make it the cover???? Even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me... I did not consent in any way. 4. And you're gonna remove all my f***in hair? Boo to you," Eilish wrote. After the uproar from the singer and her fans, the magazine removed the cover art and clarified that their intention was not to hurt anyone.
