Billie Eilish is under fire for her new song, "Wish You Were Gay," but believes the backlash is simply due to a misunderstanding. I tried so hard to not make it in any way offensive. In "Wish You Were Gay," the most recent single from Eilish's upcoming debut album, Eilish sings about wanting an explanation for unrequited love. Some fans have accused Eilish of queer-baiting with the song title , having hoped Eilish wrote it for another girl.
As I said in my immediate assessment of the song , this is great and I am truly, truly grateful. More artists should be using their platform in this way, and I am so happy about it that I only have a tiny bit of room to be annoyed that this conversation centers around an adult human being who has a favorite number. She wants in, and we are happy to have her, but a little shade is the cost of admission.
