The news comes days after Eilish used her Austin City Limits set as an opportunity to slam Texas’ highly controversial abortion laws. Standing in front of a background reading “Bans Off Our Bodies” the 19-year-old said: “I’m sick and tired of old men. Shut the fuck up about our bodies.”
“When they made that shit a law, I almost didn’t want to do the show, because I wanted to punish this fucking place for allowing that to happen here,” she adds. “But then, I remembered that it’s you guys that are the fucking victims, and you deserve everything in the world.”
Eilish dropped her latest record, Happier Than Ever, in August.
