Following last month’s release of Drake‘s latest album, For the Dogs, Yachty was criticized for his verse on “Another Late Night,” where he referenced the pop star’s breasts by rapping, “She had big tits like Billie Eilish but she couldn’t sing.”
According to Vibe, many deemed the lyric “gross” and “inappropriate,” probably thanks to Eilish’s past remarks about unsolicited public commentary on her body. And while she didn’t directly address the backlash at the time, she did end up posting a cryptic Instagram post featuring a screenshot of his lyrics, which only added to the confusion.
However, the “What Was I Made For?” singer made it clear in a new interview that she’s totally fine with Yachty’s “big tits” bit and is actually “flattered” by the shoutout.
“I think it’s fun!,” Eilish recently told Variety, adding that both Yachty and Drake are pals.
Eilish said, “It’s a joke. I do have big tits. I love it.”
In the past, Eilish has been extremely open about struggling with her body image as a celebrity, so much so that she’s made baggy, oversized clothing her signature look. Eilish also notably defended Drake against grooming allegations in 2020, after the thirty-something rapper was said to be texting both Eilish and Millie Bobbie Brown while they were in their teens.
