Billie Eilish's 'internet-breaking transformation' has fans in hysterics

Billie Eilish has stunned with a new look on the cover of British Vogue, swapping her trademark baggy shorts and T-shirts for latex stockings and corsets. 

The sultry cover story, in which Eilish insists she can "do whatever she wants" and won't be shamed for showing her skin, has left fans of the 'Bad Guy' singer stunned and excited about her latest evolution. 

The newly blonde pop star warned that she should not be taken out of the running as a role model just because people were "turned on" by her. 

"Showing your body and showing your skin - or not - should not take any respect away from you," she said in the interview.

"Suddenly you're a hypocrite if you want to show your skin, and you're easy and you're a slut and you're a whore. If I am, then I'm proud. Me and all the girls are hoes, and f**k it, y'know? Let's turn it around and be empowered in that." 

Referring to being body-shamed in the past, Eilish said she had been offended when people had given her a metaphorical pat on the back for "feeling comfortable in her bigger skin". 

"Jesus Christ?! Good for me? F**k off!" 

"It's all about what makes you feel good," she explained. 

"If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f**k it - if you feel like you look good, you look good." 

Elish's Instagram posts of the cover photos broke a record on the social media platform, becoming the fastest picture in history to surpass one million likes, which it did in just six minutes. 

Amid the many comments that read 'Oh my God!", "My jaw is on the floor" and various other exclamations, a conversation was sparked about body-positivity and a young woman's agency to own her own sexuality. 

"After years of wearing baggy clothes to protect herself, Billie takes full control," one tweet read. 

"Women are sexual. Sometimes intensely sexual. Many love projecting their sexual desires and desirability through clothing, makeup, etc. It does not harm women to be sexual. It's life affirming and enhancing.  It's psychologically healthy," said another. 

"She's really putting it all out there and I think that's very meaningful and important and I know it's helped, and will help, so many people including myself," offered a third. 

Eilish's cover story follows the release of her latest single 'Your Power', which tackles abuse of power dynamics in relationships, particularly when one partner takes advantage of another. Fans of the singer have speculated that the track is about her ex-boyfriend 'Q', who she discussed in her documentary The World's A Little Blurry
