Billie Eilish has released a new promotional single from her upcoming album 'When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?' (releasing 3/29), titled 'wish you were gay'.
As Eilish explained in an Instagram livestream, “wish you were gay” is about how it felt for her to be rejected by a boy she liked. At the time, Billie thought he didn’t like her because she was a “shitty person.“ She wanted some other reason for him not liking her, such as him being gay. Ironically, after she wrote this song, she found out he really was gay after all.
