“And that’s so not meant to be offensive in any way. It doesn’t mean that I wish he was like… it literally means I wish he was gay so that he didn’t like me for an actual reason, instead of the fact that he didn’t like me.”
An interesting song title, no doubt, but the song itself is actually a banger. “wish you were gay” is a song about Billie Eilish wanting the guy who seemingly just dumped her to “be gay” so as to provide some explanation beyond him simply not liking her. It’s an interesting concept and one that is executed quite perfectly by the 17-year-old phenom.
Eilish continues to say that the boy in question did in fact come out as gay. “And guess what? He just came out to me like a couple weeks ago. So I wrote the song and made him fuck a dude. I’m fucking proud, bro! Except not really though because I was really into him, like so into him, he’s so hot oh my God, he’s so attractive.”
This is the third single, following “you should see me in a crown” and “bury a friend” off of Billie Eilish’s recently announced upcoming album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? due out March 29th. You can find “wish you were gay” on our Tasty! Jams playlists for March.
