Billie Eilish – NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY – a short film

Billie Eilish – NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY – a short film

a short film originally produced for and seen on tour
made by billie eilish

do you know me?
really know me?
you have opinions
about my opinions
about my music
about my clothes
about my body
some people hate what I wear
some people praise it
some people use it to shame others
some people use it to shame me
but I feel you watching
and nothing I do goes unseen
so while I feel your stares
your disapproval
or your sigh of relief
if I lived by them
I’d never be able to move
would you like me to be smaller?
would you like me to be quiet?
do my shoulders provoke you?
does my chest?
am I my stomach?
my hips?
the body I was born with
is it not what you wanted?
if I wear what is comfortable
I am not a woman
if I shed the layers
I’m a slut
though you’ve never seen my body
you still judge it
and judge me for it
we make assumptions about people
based on their size
we decide who they are
we decide what they’re worth
if I wear more
if I wear less
who decides what that makes me?
what that means?
is my value based only on your perception?
or is your opinion of me
not my responsibility

    It’s so sad that she has to do this for other people, but now she is getting hate!
    Smh 🤦‍♀️

    “would you like me to be quiet?” says so much. so many celebrities are quiet and are too afraid to speak out about themselves and their own opinions, along with opinions from others, but it’s so amazing that billie stood out and decided to do this. she doesn’t wanna be quiet, but speak out about her true, powerful self instead. she is a beautiful young women who deserves what she wants. and that’s that.❤️
    billie, forget the haters and fans who want you to look a certain way and be a certain way, be yourself, be that strong and bold women you are, i love you!❤️

      Tyler Ng i agree with that. there are so many things going on in the world: climate change, racism, shootings, abortion, etc. but this is a topic that shouldn’t be as big of a deal as it is. yes this might be getting lots of attention, but it’s because the world is so focused on judgment and criticism that a basic topic that about “respect” and “imperfection” is not something we can understand and live with sadly. we shouldn’t be worrying about it, but the world is a horrible place and so many people are focused on a certain stereotype that it HAS to be an important topic that can somehow get enough attention to make society realize imperfections are okay, and normal. man, i hope to be saved so i can live an enternal, wonderful life with God so that I do not have to live in this world full of sin

      Kaleb Daniel my moms and english teacher LOL thanks!
      god bless you!

    • Kaleb Daniel says:

      @caroline dawson goddamn actually shut up with these novels

    • caroline dawson says:

      John Edwards of course they talk and talk and talk, but i don’t know some who have stood up like this to make a video TOTALLY out of their comfort zone to inform others about how imperfection is a real thing. yeah, Kylie jenner shows off her body and talks about it, but i’ve never heard her negatively say something about telling people to shut up about how a women looks? if that makes sense

    • caroline dawson says:

      Jusdeanna Kuehn but the thing is, it’s not about glorifying bodies. she doesn’t are about that, she cares about what people think of people DONT glorify their bodies. because people are gonna judge you if ur too dressed up as well. this is why society is messed it in a variety of ways

    School dress code: *well yes, actually*

  7. Katherine says:

    I remember there were people screaming when she took off her shirt during concert when she played this for the first time.
    I hope they now understand the point .

  8. Jill says:

    • Kaleb Daniel says:

    • Tyler Ng says:

      Aiman Nawaz People like you telling people that they’re amazing how they are is the equivalent of giving everybody at a competition a prize saying they’re all winners. Its not fuckin true. Snowflake.

    • emmy says:

      @Kaleb Daniel or u could stfu and go somewhere else with ur negativity

    • emmy says:

      @Tyler Ng maybe u need to get a life if your spending that much time to comment on a video. negativity needs to go away. positivity need to be spread.

    People keep saying (this goes for every other influencer) “well they chose to be famous, and put themselves out there.”
    But no they chose to put themself out there for themselves and us. People follow their dreams, are the ones most hated on. Billie is the sweetest person ever, she has done NOTHING wrong. And people are so negative towards her it’s sickening! You can see the pain in her eyes she didn’t want to strip down, she did it because people made her do it. She steps out of her comfort zone everyday and people still don’t appreciate it.

    About a year ago, back in 2019, I was going to commit suicide. The day before I was going to, I found Billie. She calmed me down, she made me feel safe and secure. And I can’t afford to go meet her. So I won’t be able to pay her back for giving me another chance. I still feel sad everyday, I feel horrible things. But then I go to Billie. And everything is ok. My dream is to meet Billie one day. But I know it won’t happen. She is busy all the time, and I can’t afford it. My family is struggling to even put food on the table. So please treat Billie with kindness and respect! She has helped so many people. I love you Billie. I’ll always be here for you! 🦋🖤

      Thank you for those words, somebody had to say it! People feel the right to spit their jealousy and insecurities on famous people as if they weren’t real people. Just the fact that they feel the need to be negative and hurtful says a lot about how much they still need to grow. Also, not everyone on the media is an influencer, that word came up to name people that got famous on social networks for showing their lifes and being really dedicated to the social net. Some of them judge others. Billie is an artist and got famous for her art. Your words were so sweet and we need more people like you in this cold world. I hope you get to meet Billie cause she really seems a sweet person. Sending you a hug! Life is hard at times and that’s what makes happiness exist. As Bob Ross said once, “there’s no light without darkness”.

      But this is life. This is the price you pay to become a celebrity. People will either love or hate you.

    • Fabiana Hdez says:

      @Q. // Kween; She’s not a celebritie, she’s an artist.

    🇧🇷 TRADUÇÃO: Você tem opiniões
    Sobre as minhas opiniões
    Sobre as minhas músicas
    Sobre as minhas roupas
    Sobre o meu corpo

    Algumas pessoas odeiam o que eu uso
    Algumas pessoas elogiam
    Algumas pessoas usam isso para envergonhar outros
    Algumas pessoas usam isso para me envergonhar Mas eu sinto você olhando
    E nada que eu faço passa despercebido
    Então enquanto eu sinto as encaradas
    De desaprovação
    Ou seu suspiro de alívio
    Se eu vivesse por eles
    Eu nunca seria capaz de me mover

    Você gostaria que eu fosse menor?
    Mais fraca?
    Mais mole?
    Mais alta?
    Você gostaria que eu fosse quieta?
    Meus ombros te provocam?
    Meu peito?
    Eu sou a minha barriga?
    Minha cintura?
    O corpo com o qual eu nasci
    Não é o que você queria?

    Se eu vestir o que me deixa confortável
    Eu não sou uma mulher
    Se eu tirar as camadas [de roupa]
    Eu sou uma vagabunda
    Mesmo você nunca tendo visto meu corpo
    Você ainda o julga
    E me julga por ele
    Por quê?

    Nós assumimos coisas sobre as pessoas baseados em seus tamanhos
    Nós decidimos quem elas são
    Nós decidimos o que elas valem
    Se eu vestir mais
    Se eu vestir menos
    Quem decide o que isso faz de mim?
    O que isso significa?

    O meu valor é baseado apenas na sua percepção?
    Ou a sua opinião de mim
    Não é minha responsabilidade?

    For those who didn’t get what she was trying to say:
    Don’t judge people by first impression and let a woman be who she is.

  17. Diya BAMBAWALE says:

    This is such an important message for people today. Stop judging people just because your jealous of them, if you can’t respect of love them, then leave them alone. Don’t spend time trying to bring them down.

  18. ur mother says:

    I hate my body.
    I try to change it.
    But no matter how much I try,
    It always stays the same.
    “Why can’t I be skinny” or “What would people think about me if I was skinnier”
    Thoughts that go throughout my head.
    But Billie, she gets me!
    I’m finally not alone.

    Thank you Billie 💚❤️
