We might be able to identify the problem where with Billie Eilish

No, identify the problem alongside Billie Eilish, not the problem with her:

Billie Eilish has spoken about the prevalence of sexual exploitation of minors in an interview, saying “it’s everywhere”.

Speaking about her new single, Your Power, which addresses an abusive relationship between a minor and an older person, the 19-year-old singer told Vogue that all her peers had experienced some sort of sexual impropriety.

“[The song is] really not about one person. You might think, ‘it’s because she’s in the music industry’, no dude. It’s everywhere,” she says. “I don’t know one girl or woman who hasn’t had a weird experience or a really bad experience. And men too – young boys are taken advantage of constantly.”

She adds: “It doesn’t matter who you are, what your life is, your situation, who you surround yourself with, how strong you are, how smart you are. You can always be taken advantage of. That’s a big problem in the world of domestic abuse or statutory rape – girls that were very confident and strong-willed finding themselves in situations where they’re like, ‘oh my god, I’m the victim here?’ And it’s so embarrassing and humiliating and demoralising to be in that position of thinking you know so much and then you realise, I’m being abused right now.”

Two possible explanations present themselves. All young people are being sexually abused. The other is that the definition of sexual abuse has so expanded as to now encompass what is entirely normal behaviour among human beings. I would tend to that second explanation myself……

  1. ‘I don’t know one girl or woman who hasn’t had a weird experience or a really bad experience…’

    *raises hand*

  2. Or a third explanation – it is rife amongst those in the “entertainment industry” but not elsewhere.

  3. Could be a local thing – maybe it was rife in Eilish’s school in Los Angeles? *checks Wikipedia* Oh, she was homeschooled. So as Rob says, it’s only rife in the entertainment industry. The eternal casting couch.

  4. What Rob said. Being a female teen pop star is hardly representative of the universal female teen life experience is it?

  5. I’d no idea who she was. But when I googled her, she looks like the sort of dreamy pouty druggy self-absorbed weird girl who tends to attract blokes who know she’ll not complain afterwards because she’s too out of her mind to realise what happened. I don’t know, but my guess is that this is a carefully constructed image.

  6. Talking of sexual exploitation in the music biz, when Eilish was a minor they had her dressing in baggy clothes and looking a bit Gothy, while talking about how she’s not like all the other starlets.

    A bit of grooming later, they have her dressed like a hooker and she will no doubt be gyrating like one in her next video.

    Hollywood/music biz – a bunch of degenerates and nonces.

  7. Bullshit publicity for her bullshit “music”.

    If enough mugs really really believed in alien abductions she’d claim all her friends …..etc.

    What we need is for modern music creepers to become devotees of the “Missing 411” and get mysteriously and eternally lost in US national parks.

  8. Never trust someone who goes straight from school to telling other people what to do.

    Even Gordon Ramsay doesn’t consider culinary school adequate experience to run a kitchen. He expects head chefs to also have prior experience working in several restaurants.

  9. “girls that were very confident and strong-willed finding themselves in situations where they’re like, ‘oh my god, I’m the victim here?’ And it’s so embarrassing and humiliating…”

    Teenage girl who thinks she’s “all grown up”, knows everything and wants to act like it finds out she isn’t.

  10. Theres also mother nature to consider.

    When you Google BE you’ll almost always see her in shapeless baggy clothing.

    This is I think because she was blessed/ cursed with abundant boobage.

    Maybe this is a (neurotic?) reaction to too much attention?

    And attention in the entertainment industry is normally from Harvey Weinstein type scumbags as others have said.
