Billie Eilish recently opened up about her attraction to women. 

In an interview with Variety, which was published on November 13, the singer said she had never felt like a woman and has a thing for women. 

In a follow-up interview published over the weekend, the 'Lovely' hitmaker said she didn't make her sexuality public because she thought it was obvious. 

Variety asked her if she was intentional about coming out during her November interview. 

"No, I didn't, but I kinda thought, wasn't it obvious?" I didn't realize people didn't know,"  she said.

However, she also said she doesn't understand the need to go public about one's sexual orientation. 

"I'm just like, why can't we just exist? I've been doing this for a long time and I just didn't talk about it. I saw the article and I was like, 'Oh, I guess I came out today.' OK, cool'," she said. 

The 'Hotline' hitmaker says coming out has freed her. 

"It's exciting to me because I guess people didn't know, so it's cool that they know," she added. 

However, she says even though she has opened up, she is still nervous. 

"Ooh, I'm nervous talking about it. But no, I am for the girls," she said. 

The 21-year-old echoed the words from her November interview that she is intimidated by women. "I'm still scared of them but I think they're pretty."
