“Y’all gotta start normalising real bodies OK? Not everybody has a wagon behind them. Guts are normal, they’re normal! Boobs sag, especially after breast feeding. Instagram isn’t real.”

Billie Eilish has continued her work speaking back to body-shamers sharing a Tik Tok video by influencer Chizi Duru urging social media users to normalise real bodies. 

In the video Duru explains: “Y’all gotta start normalising real bodies OK? Not everybody has a wagon behind them. Guts are normal, they’re normal! Boobs sag, especially after breastfeeding. Instagram isn’t real.”

Duru also explains in the caption that social media has warped young people's ideas of what is normal. 

"Instagram has warped a lot of y’all into thinking NORMAL bodies are abnormal. NO. Not every black girl has a shelf behind them. Stomach pudge is completely normal. Most boobs SAGGGG. And to all my mamas out there, it’s ok! You brought LIFE into this world sis 💕"

Eilish shared the video on her Instagram story to her 67.2 million fans.

The Grammy award winning singer has been vocal on the pressure for young women to conform to unrealistic body standards, posting a short film blasting double standards. 

"Nothing I do goes unseen. If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut … Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet?”  she said in the video.
