Billie Eilish is burying Nylon Germany for a creepy cover shot she apparently did NOT consent to!
The 17-year-old artist took to Instagram to blast the mag for the cover of its latest issue, which depicts her as a weirdly sexualized robot. Think Sophia the Robot, only topless.
In a scathing comment, the Bad Guy singer claimed neither she nor her team were approached by the mag about the piece, for which she “had absolutely no creative input.” Now, Billie is giving her input, and she has a few problems with the final product — like how she’s “shirtless” and completely bald!

She wrote in the comments section of Nylon’s post:
“what the f**k is this s**t.
1. i was never approached by nylon about this piece whatsoever. i did not know it was happening nor did anyone on my team.
2. this is not even a real picture of me. i had absolutely no creative input.
3. youre gonna make a picture of me shirtless?? thats not real?? at 17? and make it the cover???? even if the picture was supposed to look like some robot version of me… i did not consent in any way.
4. ANNNDDD YOU’RE GONNA REMOVE ALL MY F**KIN HAIR? booooooooooo to you??”
Let em know, girl!
The starlet’s remarks naturally set off a wave of outrage on social media, with many fans slamming Nylon for sexualizing — and robotizing — the singer without her consent.
The mag, for its part, responded to Billie’s comment with an updated caption, insisting they never intended to create a look that was “confusing or insulting” to the VMA winner.
Nylon went on to claim it was hoping to “honor” the young star with the “3D artwork” on the cover, which was created in dedication of Billie’s achievements “and the positive effect she has had on millions around the globe.”
Clearly, their tribute didn’t have a positive effect on the musician…
Ch-ch-check out the inciting cover (below) and read Nylon’s full response in the caption.
The post is still up as of this writing, so it looks like Eilish Machina is here to stay… for now!
Nylon went on to reveal this “avatar” was part of a cover series “highlighting the power of digital prodigy artists.” So, keep an eye out for the upcoming cover of Robot Bhad Bhabie, we guess.
