“It literally means I wish he was gay so that he didn’t like me for an actual reason, instead of the fact that he didn’t like me.” – Billie Eilish
Billie Eilish , a 17 year-old bodacious soul like Billie Holiday, releases her latest daring and therapeutically forthright single “wish you were gay.” The meaning of the record appears obvious but its deeper than what lies on the proverbial surface. Pain, a frequently penned musical topic, is conveyed in a unique way in her most recent diary-like tune.
She states, “I wrote this song about a guy that really was not interested in me and it made me feel horrible, so the song is called “wish you were gay.”
Rejection feels a tab better with probable cause but the harrowing reality still lurks in your subconscious and future relational endeavors. Eilish confirmed that the man in question did eventually come out as gay, did it soothe her aching heart or just answer “yes” to a question where she yearned for the answer to be “no?”
Her highly anticipated debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? will release March 29. In the meantime support her latest release below.
She will be donating a portion of the earnings from her BLOHSH apparel line to The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide and crisis prevention program for at-risk LGBTQ youth.
Baby, I don’t feel so good
Six words you never understood
I’ll never let you go; Five words you never say
I laugh along like nothing’s wrong
Four days has never felt so long
If three’s a crowd and two is us
One slipped away
