Billie Eilish Casually Comes Out as 'Physically Attracted' to Women

Billie Eilish has casually come out as "physically attracted" to girls and also intimidated by them. In a wide-ranging interview Variety, the "Bad Girl" singer shared her previous struggles to feel like a "girls girl" and feeling confident in her skin.
"I love them so much," Eillish gushed about girls. "I love them as people. I'm attracted to them as people. I'm attracted to them for real ... I'm physically attracted to them. But I'm also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence."
Eillish's sexuality, self-expression and femininity have been a topic of discussion since she was a teenager. She most recently dated The Neighbourhood's Jesse Rutherford before ending the relationship in May.
So does this officially mean she is bi? Maybe. Or maybe she is just girl figuring herself out like everyone else. After all, Eillish admits that she still struggles with how she defines her womanhood.
"I've never felt like a woman, to be honest with you," she said. "I've never felt desirable. I've never felt feminine."
She added, "I have to convince myself that I'm, like, a pretty girl." Still she explained that she identifies as "she/her" and things like that, but I've never really felt like a girl."
It's a fascinating peek at another pop star who has been famous just as long as she has been alive.
