Billie Eilish has a message for body shamers.

The 18 year old has a new song  called Therefore I am and it is  filled with lyrics that seem to be aimed at body shamers who have recently passed comments about Billie’s body.  Let’s take a look a the lyrics:

[Chorus]
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

[Verse 1]
Stop, what the hell are you talking about? Ha
Get my pretty name out of your mouth
We are not the same with or without
Don’t talk ’bout me like how you might know how I feel
Top of the world, but your world isn’t real
Your world’s an ideal

[Pre-Chorus]
So go have fun
I really couldn’t care less
And you can give ’em my best, but just know

[Chorus]
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

[Verse 2]
I don’t want press to put your name next to mine
We’re on different lines, so I
Wanna be nice enough, they don’t call my bluff
‘Cause I hate to find
Articles, articles, articles
I’d rather you remain unremarkable
(Got a lotta) Interviews, interviews, interviews
When they say your name, I just act confused

[Pre-Chorus]
Did you have fun?
I really couldn’t care less
And you can give ’em my best, but just know

[Chorus]
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am
I’m not your friend or anything
Damn, you think that you’re the man
I think, therefore, I am

[Bridge]
I’m sorry
I don’t think I caught your name
I’m sorry
I don’t think I caught your name

[Chorus]
I’m not your friend or anything (I’m not your friend)
Damn, you think that you’re the man (They wanna, they can try)
I think, therefore, I am (I am)
I’m not your friend or anything (Friend, they wanna)
Damn, you think that you’re the man (You’re the man)
I think, therefore, I am (Therefore, I am)

The lyrics seem to suggest that American singer-songwriter does not want anyone controlling her and that she is her own person who is able to make her own decisions about her life, herself and her body. The line “I think, therefore, I am,” is  taken from the philosopher René Descartes. It means although we cannot be sure of the existence of our physical self we know our self conscious is real because we can think.

The last few lines of the song can be seen to be in reference to the man who body shamed Billie recently. The singer however does not want to give this man anymore attention than he has already received hence she chooses not to mention his name or further details about him.

The music video was shot entirely in an empty mall and shows the Bad Guy singer going from food kiosk to kiosk and eating a variety of different snack foods including, pretzels, donuts and drinks. Fans seem to think that the reason why Billie is seen eating throughout the video suggest that she really does not care what people think or say about her body.
