Billie Eilish Criticized For Accusing Rappers Of Lying In Their Songs.
Billie Eilish Recently had an Interview With Vogue Magazine, The Grammy-Winning Singer Claimed That The Current Hip-Hop Rap Music Has ‘Many Songs Where People Are Just Lying.’
Billie Eilish might need to really think twice before making a comment now on topics like this. The Grammy winner has been receiving backlash over a comment she made in her recent Vogue interview that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, especially hip-hop and Rap fans.
Talking about the music industry during the Vogue interview, Billie Eilish claimed that many rappers are fake and are fabricating stories in their songs.
“Just because the story isn’t real doesn’t mean it can’t be important,” she said. “There’s a difference between lying in a song and writing a story. There are tons of songs where people are just lying.”
Billie Eilish went on to point out, “There’s a lot of that in rap right now, from people that I know who rap. It’s like, ‘I got my AK-47, and I’m f *** in’…,’ and I’m like, what? You don’t have a gun. ‘And all my b *** hes…,’ I’m like which b***hes? That’s posturing, and that’s not what I’m doing.”
Billie’s comment soon sparked backlash, with Hip-Hop fans accusing her of appropriating black culture, “Billie Eilish appropriates black culture then drags black music just like Miley Cyrus did but y’all don’t keep the same energy. If you cancel one, gotta cancel both.” Meanwhile, another urged “anyone that agrees with Billie Eilish on what she said about rap/hip hop” to stay away from him/her, adding, “You are the feds.”
Another person pointed out, “The most overrated generic artist in the world right now shouldn’t have an opinion about hip-hop,” while one other said, “Turning to 17 year old white girls to determine what’s authentic in this culture? That’s what we doing now?” A different person accused her hypocrisy, “Ain’t she admit that she doesn’t live any of the problems she sings about tho?”
One individual told Billie to “mind your business,” while another chipped in, “This chick literally sounds like she is whispering on every track she makes… any hip hop take is automatically null bro please go.” There was also one who sarcastically said, “So she emulates hip hop culture, gets a few grammys and then attempts to s**t on hip hop? Oh ok, got it.”
Billie Eilish has yet to respond to the backlash.
