Nylon Germany has come under fire for the baffling cover of their latest issue!
The reason for the magazine coming under fire is a fully digital rendering of eccentric — and underage — pop prodigy Billie Eilish, topless and bald. Cotninue on…
CelebNFashion247.com reports that once Billie Eilish saw the Nylon Germany cover she was less than pleased by it so she made sure to sound off.
The 17-year-old pop star Billie Eilish responded in a comment on the magazine’s Instagram, writing:
What the f–k is this s–t. 1. I was never approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team. 2. this is not even a real picture of me. i had absolutely no creative input. 3. youre gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? thats not real?? at 17? and make it the cover???? even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… I did not consent in any way. 4. ANNNDDD YOU’RE GONNA REMOVE ALL MY F—IN HAIR? booooooooooo to you.” She finished her comment with a middle-finger emoji.
After Eilish’s comment, Nylon Germany edited their original post with an apology:
For this cover, it was never our intention to create a look that is confusing or insulting to Billie Eilish. It was only ever our intention to honor Billies impact and her work by creating this avatar which is part of a cover series highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists. This avatar is a piece of 3D artwork created in dedication to her achievements and the positive effect she has had on millions around the globe — including us.
That wasn’t good enough for Elish, so the post has been removed completely.
Earlier this week, Eilish picked up Best New Artist at the MTV VMAs.
