Billie Eilish says she didn't expect as much surprise to her “coming out,” during her a recent interview with Variety for the outlet's "Power of Women" cover story. Attending Variety Hitmakers on Saturday, Eilish admitted that she thought it was "obvious" she liked women. She also joked: “I’m still scared of ‘em but I think they’re pretty.”
“I kind of thought, wasn’t it obvious?" she further said on the red carpet. "I didn’t realize people didn’t know, I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, why can’t we just exist? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it.”

As for her comments in the Variety piece, she previously explained: “I’ve never really felt like I could relate to girls very well. I love them so much. I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real. I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life. I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.” Check out her latest remarks on the matter below.
