"I've never felt like a woman, to be honest with you. I've never felt desirable. I've never felt feminine," revealed Eilish. "I have to convince myself that I'm, like, a pretty girl."

The "Bad Guy" singer clarified her preferred pronouns, adding, "I identify as 'she/her' and things like that, but I've never really felt like a girl."

Although Eilish wrestles with that assumption, she admitted that she's "attracted to" other women. "I love [women] so much. I love them as people. I'm attracted to them as people. I'm attracted to them for real," she said.

"I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life," the singer-songwriter continued.

 "I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”

Billie Eilish, who has faced intense scrutiny around her sexuality and dating life, described the experience as "weird and upsetting" in her conversation with Variety.

Despite this, she has traditionally maintained privacy about her personal affairs.

“Like, oh yeah, that’s everyone else’s business, right? No. Where’s that energy with men?” she continued.

“I just wanted to make a song once, and then I kept making songs. I never said, ‘Hey, pay attention to my life.’”
