Billie Eilish on the cover of British Vogue, June 2021.

Billie Eilish covers the June 2021 issue of British Vogue magazine, as photographed by Craig McDean, and styled by Dena Giannini in close collaboration with Eilish herself - who says about the shoot, "I love these pictures and I loved doing this shoot. Do whatever you want whenever you want. Fuck everything else."

On how being celebrated in opposition to other female popstars has hurt her: "Because of the way that I feel that the world sees me, I haven’t felt really desired. But that’s really my whole life, though, so I don’t know if it’s anything to do with fame."

On the TV trope of a 'classic hot girl' undergoing a personality transplant once entering a relationship: "She’s this completely different character of wifey. It really f**ked me up. Everybody’s like, ‘You can’t make a wife out of a hoe’ – and it’s like, you’re attracted to that person, though. You created that person. Suddenly you’re a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you’re easy and you’re a slut and you’re a whore. If I am, then I’m proud. Me and all the girls are hoes, and f**k it, y’know? Let’s turn it around and be empowered in that. Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you."
