Billie Eilish, a renowned singer, songwriter, and cultural icon, has recently spoken candidly about her journey of self-discovery regarding her sexuality.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, she revealed how the song, "Hit Me Hard and Soft," played a significant role in helping her come to terms with her feelings.

The song's lyrics, "I could eat that girl for lunch, yeah she dances on my tongue/ Tastes like she might be the one, and I can never get enough, I could buy her so much stuff, it's a craving, not a crush/ So now she's coming up the stairs, so I'm pulling up a chair, and I'm putting up my hair," helped her understand her sexuality better.

Eilish stated, "That song was actually part of what helped me become who I am, to be real. I wrote some of it before even doing anything with a girl and then wrote the rest after. I've been in love with girls for my whole life, but I just didn't understand--until last year, I realized I wanted my face in a vagina."

Eilish never intended to discuss her sexuality with the public, and she expressed frustration that it became a topic of discussion.

Billie Eilish also spoke about the Instagram post that she decided to put up and follow the headlines reporting on her sexuality.

“The whole world suddenly decided who I was, and I didn’t get to say anything or control any of it. Nobody should be pressured into being one thing or the other, and I think that there’s a lot of wanting labels all over the place."

“Dude, I’ve known people that don’t know their sexuality, or feel comfortable with it, until they’re in their forties, fifties, sixties. It takes a while to find yourself, and I think it’s really unfair, the way that the internet bullies you into talking about who you are and what you are.”
