Billie Eilish hit Nylon Germany for releasing a digitally altered cover in which she is portrayed as a bald and topless robot – without her permission.
The 17-year-old singer, who deliberately hides her body under baggy clothing to prevent her from being objectified, took Instagram on Tuesday to make it clear that she had nothing to do with the & # 39; Digital Prodigies & # 39; of the magazine, which falls on Friday.
& # 39; what is this, & # 39; she wrote. & # 39; 1. I have never been approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. I didn't know it happened and nobody on my team. 2. This is not even a real image of me. I had absolutely no creative input.
What do you say? Billie Eilish, 17, went to Instagram on Tuesday to call Nylan Germany for releasing a digitally modified cover of her without her permission
Outrage: the singer closed the publication because she portrayed her bald and bare shoulders when she was just a teenager, noting that the 3D image is not a real photo of her
& # 39; 3. are you going to take a picture of me without a shirt? That is not real ?? at 5 pm? and make it the cover ?? even if the photo would look like a robot version of me … I didn't agree in any way, & she continued.
& # 39; 4. ANNNDDD ARE YOU ALREADY REMOVING MY F **** N HER? booooooooooo to you [sic]. & # 39;
The creepy cover photo, which was shared on the Instagram page of Nylon Germany, shows Billie with a bald head, bare shoulders and shiny skin.
& # 39; Welcome to the f ***** g full cover future @billieeilish is one of the three cover stars for our new edition # 8 on DIGITAL PRODIGIES, dropping this FRIDAY, & # 39; the magazine wrote the image.
Angry: Billie deliberately hides her body under baggy clothing to prevent her from being objectified
Sorry: Nylon Germany apologized for Billie in a statement on Instagram and said it was never intended to make a cover that confused her & # 39; or & # 39; offensive & # 39; would make
& # 39; This issue is all different while we keep our NYLON spirit alive: we have asked fans to tell the stories of three digital prodigies who are redefining the future of Teen Superstar. & # 39;
After being recalled by Billie, the magazine updated the post with a statement in which the apologies to the singer & # 39; Bad Guy & # 39; were offered.
& # 39; For this cover, we never intended to create a look that is confusing or offensive to Billie Eilish & # 39 ;, the magazine wrote.
& # 39; Canceled & # 39 ;: Billie's fans also destroyed the magazine because she had released the cover without her permission
& # 39; Our only intention was to honor the impact of Billie and her work by making this avatar part of a cover series that emphasizes the power of digital miracle artists.
& # 39; This avatar is a piece of 3D artwork created for the sake of its performance and the positive effect it has had on millions of people around the world – including us. & # 39;
Although the cover only reveals Billie & # 39; s bare shoulders, people found it particularly offensive because she made it a point in her career to wear baggy clothes to prevent people from commenting on her body.
Fans flocked to the post to call the magazine to make the controversial cover without talking to the hit maker.
The same atmosphere: Nylon Germany released a similar robot-inspired cover with 17-year-old German twins Lisa and Lena Mantler, who are social media stars
Approved: Like Billie, the twins commented on their cover, but insisted they were asked in advance & # 39; asked & # 39;
& # 39; THIS IS WHY WE HAVE CANCELED THE LAST YEAR NYLON & # 39 ;, one person wrote, while another added: & # 39; You will simply embarrass yourself enormously. & # 39;
Some commentators simply wrote: & # 39; canceled & # 39 ;.
The following day, Nylon Germany released a similar robot-inspired cover with 17-year-old German twins Lisa and Lena Mantler, who are social media stars.
Like Billie, they commented on their cover – but insisted that it was made with their permission.
& # 39; We have been asked & # 39 ;, they wrote.
