Billie Eilish recently confirmed her attraction to women during an interview at Variety’s Hitmakers event, following her revelation in the November issue of Variety’s Power of Women cover story. Despite not intending to make a grand declaration about her sexuality, Eilish expressed surprise that some people were unaware, stating, “Wasn’t it obvious?” She reflected on her perspective, questioning why there’s a need for a formal announcement and emphasizing the idea of simply existing without labels or declarations.

Regarding the article’s impact, Eilish mentioned, “I saw the article, and I was like, ‘Oh I guess I came out today.’ OK cool. It’s exciting to me because I guess people didn’t know, but it’s cool that they know.” She further expressed her support, saying, “I am for the girls.”

In her interview with Variety, Eilish had discussed her emotional connections with women, expressing her deep appreciation for them as individuals and her genuine attraction toward them.
