Billie Eilish may be in a Calvin Klein ad campaign, but she's not going to be posing in her underwear any time soon. 

The young musician has skyrocketed to fame, and with that comes the entitlement that society feels for the entertainer's persona. Eilish has reclaimed that privacy with a don't-care attitude and a rather bold fashion statement. 

Her music videos are always meticulously thought out and in line with her dark aesthetic. Fans love Eilish's authenticity and genuine disregard for all things famous; she is an artist at her core and only cares about making music.

In a campaign with Calvin Klein, the 17-year-old made an important statement about privacy. 

Billie Eilish is known for her creepy aesthetic and moody beats in songs like "Bury a Friend," "You Should See Me in a Crown," and "Bad Guy." She's also notorious for her oversize street style. Most would just assume it's part of her grungy taste. But in a campaign video for Calvin Klein, Eilish made a poignant comment about the male gaze. 

"I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean that's why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath," the singer said in the video. 

Her style is defined by oversize streetwear, but it's not just a fashion statement. 

The 17-year-old has exploded in popularity since the release of her first single, "Ocean Eyes," and has since attempted to maintain some privacy. She's famous for her moody pouts toward the camera and rarely flashing a smile — because why would she need to?

The baggy clothes are part of her style as much as they are part of her personality. 

The clothes she wears are another symbol of her privacy and are a direct clapback to the sexualization of young artists. "Nobody can be like, 'Ah she's slim thick, she's not slim thick, she's got a fat a**, she's got a flat a**.' Nobody can say any of that, because they don't know," Eilish said in the Calvin Klein advertisement video. 

Another video from her campaign features the star's standard creepy aesthetic. 

In another video about the teen's authenticity, she is dangling from a reflective surface that looks like a blue sky. The artist has remained steadfast and genuine in her musical style and aesthetic, as well as staying open and honest about her beliefs with fans. 

"You can't fake authenticity," the star says in the video, followed by a chuckle and a "What the f*** am I saying?" 

Calvin Klein has updated its own message to feel more inclusive and authentic, too.

As opposed to the brand's previous ad campaigns, which featured stunning waifish models, the latest ads feature a more diverse cast of characters with the message #mytruth. 

By including Eilish, who chose not to show any skin in the video, the brand proves how far its marketing has come — even though the ad is for underwear, the real importance comes from the person wearing the underwear and their personal truths.

Also appear in the Calvin Klein campaign alongside Eilish are Chika, A$AP Rocky, Indya Moore, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Noah Centineo, and Shawn Mendes. 

She's previously poked fun at her own baggy outfits, such as this one that was made into a meme. 

Her style has sometimes cost her some pride, as this look was made into a viral meme. Eilish didn't seem to mind, and playfully poked fun at her own expense in this caption, "Man why tf are tierra whack and sza hanging out with soulja boy?"

Followers likened Eilish's incredibly oversize, boxy look to something Soulja Boy wore in the early 2000s, and the young pop star hopped on the meme bandwagon with her own remark. 

The star rarely shows off any skin above her knees and elbows. 

The musician often wears clothing that drops well below her knees and shoulders. She uses clothing as a protective barrier against the comments about her looks that are unavoidable in the entertainment industry. As explained in the video, she is able to ward off any unwanted comments about her appearance by staying covered up and underneath her "big baggy clothes."

Recently, the young musician was featured on the cover of Billboard

In her interview with Billboard, Eilish talks about her rapid rise to fame and the success of her freshman album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? The young star has famous fans like Katy Perry and Avril Lavigne. Eilish is 22 million followers strong on her Instagram, but has stayed true to her unapologetic vibe. 

Eilish is the self-proclaimed no. 1 Office fan, and even got to meet Rainn Wilson after she sampled an episode of the show in a song.

As part of her Billboard interview, Eilish got to meet one of her idols, Rainn Wilson from The Office. Wilson (who plays Dwight Schrute) questions Eilish's Office intel and sees how much of a superfan she truly is. She gets nearly every question right and is gifted a metallic yogurt cup lid, which Office fans will recognize as the gold medals from the Dunder Mifflin Office Olympics.

She's is unapologetically herself and isn't going to change anytime soon. 

The teenage musician rebels against classic societal norms and pressures that expect her to look and act girlie. She's comfortable in her own skin and is not going to smile if you ask. The baggy clothes and harsh exterior are protections against society's entitlement of celebrities and artists. It's one way she is able to reclaim her own privacy. Frankly, we stan.
