Grammy-winner Billie Ellish lashed out recently and showed her frustration with how people have ignored the issues of women’s rights. While performing at the Glastonbury Festival 2022 as the youngest headliner ever, Billie Eilish exploded against celebrity gossip.
Billie Eilish talked about the issue
Billie’s recent song at the Manchester concert with the lyrics, “The internet’s gone wild watching movie stars on trial / While they’re overturning Roe v. Wade” talked about how people are obsessed with celeb gossip. In her song, Billie Eilish condemned the Internet for caring more about Depp and Heard’s court trial than the Supreme Court’s recent abortion verdict.
Billie opened up about her depression
During an interview with NME, Billie Eilish revealed that she was in depression during the Deep and Heard Trial. “I was in this state of depression, losing my own rights to my own body, and then I’d go on the internet and it would be people giving their take on this trial,” added the singer.
Netizens’ reaction to the incident
Following the incident, netizens used their keyboard to what Eilish responded.

“This court is messing with everyone’s business.” a user commented while talking about the issue.
Did not care at all about some celebrities trial. That's their own business. This court is messing with everyone's business.— Snacksaregood (@0be1kenobi) June 24, 2022
A user compared the current issues to Leonardo Di Caprio’s movie, “Don’t Look Up”

All power to Billie Eilish for highlighting abortion law change in USA at Glastonbury & internet being more interested in Heard v Depp!! #Sadworld— Glen Preston (@GlenPreston69) June 25, 2022
People are more focused on celebrities’ divorce trials, said Billie Eilish
While talking about women’s rights, Billie said people want to talk about divorce trials referring to Depp and Heard trial. She added, “Who f*cking gives a f*ck? Women are losing rights for their bodies, so why are we talking about celebrities’ divorce trials? Who gives a shit? Let them figure it out on their own. The internet bothers the shit out of me sometimes.”
With her statement, Billie Eilish expressed how fed up the majority of the people are with how ignored the real issues can become sometimes. The Depp Heard Trial was over all over the internets for a quite long time in the news cycle.
