Billie Eilish & The Rise Of Queerbaiting In Celebrity Culture
Play • 53 min

In this week's episode, we explore the rise in queer ambiguity amongst Gen Z icons such as Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles and the like. We discuss how celebrities use queerbaiting to their advantage and the implications for mainstream LGBTQIA+ representation. We also look at whether fans put too much pressure on their faves to put a label on their sexual orientation and how that might impact the artist's own personal exploration.
