  • Singer Billie Eilish is accusing entertainment magazine Variety of “outing me,” following a red carpet interview this past weekend in which she seems to make clear she’s romantically or sexually attracted to women.
  • The matter started with a cover interview for Variety published last month in which Eilish suggested she was attracted to women.
  • She was then asked Saturday by Variety at the red carpet event about her attraction to women, to which she replied: “I didn’t realize people didn’t know.”
  • On Monday, Eilish posted on Instagram: “Thanks variety for my award and for also outing me on a red carpet at 11 am instead of talking about anything else that matters i like boys and girls leave me alone about it please.”
