Introduction: What is the Controversy?
The issue with Billie Eilish is the content of her song, “try not to cum.” She refuses to apologize for the lyrics. She says that they’re not directed at anyone, but is there a double meaning? What does Billie Eilish mean with “try not to cum”? The lyrics could be interpreted in the wrong way, though that’s up to the listener.
Billie Eilish has used social media as a medium to share her music, but she has not had much success with her statements there. She has been criticized for many things, but this issue seems to be the most popular one.
It is not her fault that people are offended by the song, but Billie Eilish should apologize and try to speak more carefully. She could have been more clear that her lyrics were directed at no one in particular, so it will be interesting to see how people react.
Billie Eilish’s Explicit Lyrics as Risks to Children
Billie Eilish is generally known for her songs with explicit lyrics – in some instances these songs are about more serious topics like depression, death and suicide. She has drawn a lot of criticism for how her music is perceived, especially by children. Many worry that they are being exposed to more mature topics without the proper education and guidance. To help educate these children, this article will examine Billie Eilish’s lyrics and how they can be a risk to children who listen to them. The article will also look at other artists with explicit lyrics and discuss how these songs should be handled with caution.
Billie Eilish’s lyrics
Billie Eilish is an 18-year-old singer, who has recently released her latest single ‘Bad Guy’. This song made headlines after it was revealed that she was 13 when the song was written. The song is still very similar to the original so it may not be as explicit in lyrics; however, Billie talks about relationships with men and drink. “You’re the bad guy… you are the bad guy… and I don’t know if I like it.” Billie sings with a high pitch, “I’m in love with the bad guy…”. These lyrics may be easy to follow but some children would need to ask adults for clarification.
Why is this Controversial?
Billie Eilish has a minor following and young fans who are likely to search her lyrics on the internet. This song, like some others in her repertoire, contain lyrics that are sexual in nature. Her fans sing along to her music and many of them have no idea what their idol is singing about. Some have pointed out that this song is different than “Bad Guy”, an equally erotic song. Another point that can be made is that she’s a teenager, and teens often don’t think about the consequences of what they do. It’s hard not to think of Billie Eilish as a troubled person, but whether or not she is may be more a question of her “artistic expression” than her character.
In this paper, I will make the argument that Billie Eilish’s song is not a sexual song but rather a non-sexual song (or perhaps an anti-sexual song). I will also argue that “Try Not to Cum” does not qualify as an obscene performance under the First Amendment. The facts of this case make it clear that the First Amendment should apply to Billie Eilish because her art is clearly protected by the Constitution.

The first verse shows a positive message of self-acceptance, acceptance from society, and not caring about outside messages. The lyrics state: ” I’ve been told there’s nothing wrong with me / But I feel like I’m about to break / You said we’re gonna be okay / You know that everything is alright. I’ve been told there’s nothing wrong with me / I know the thoughts that they were thinking / I know the lies they were telling”. (Billie Eilish, “Try Not To Cry”). These lyrics show self-acceptance and not caring about outside messages. These lyrics also help to build her image as a feminist icon.
