Billie Eilish thinks she won Grammys because she’s white



Recently the singer criticized the industry for labeling white artists as pop and black artists as rap or R&B.

"I have always hated categories," Billie said in an interview for GQ. "I hate when people say, 'Oh, you look like “blank“.' Adding, "Look, if I wasn't white I would probably be in rap... Where am I pop?"

Finally adding that she agrees with people who say she only won her 5 Grammys because of her whiteness, "Then there's the other side of this whole thing: people shitting on me because I am white. 'Oh, she's white, that's why she won.' You know what? I agree with the sentiment; I get why people say that."
