Billie Eilish has attacked the editors of Nylon Germany for turning her into a creepy robot for the cover of their latest issue.
The Bad Guy hitmaker was stunned when the image was posted on Instagram on Thursday (August 29, 2019), and quickly took to social media to blast magazine bosses for reworking her image without her consent.
“what the f**k is this s**t,” she raged, explaining she was “never approached by nylon about this piece” and adding, “i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team… i had absolutely no creative input.”
She also scolded the magazine bosses for putting a photo of a bald and “shirtless” 17-year-old on the cover.
“even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… i did not consent in any way,” she added.
Editors have responded to the blast, insisting, “It was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie Eilish. It was only ever our intention to honor Billie‘s 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 effect she has had on millions around the globe – including us.”
