From the unveiling of her powerful short film Not My Responsibility, to her cleverly crafted response to body shamers in her most recent music video Therefore I Am, it's fair to say that Billie Eilish is without a doubt, one of the most vocal advocates of body neutrality and acceptance in 2020.

Eilish has never shied away from using fashion and beauty to highlight the important message of authenticity and acceptance. In behind the scene clips from Therefore I Am, shared on Instagram, the star snapped a series of photos of documenting her ‘clapback nails,’ a perfect addition to the video’s necessary message.

In her most recent Tik Tok, the 18-year-old showed that her signature candid authenticity can be found in everyday humour too. Eilish shared a humorous and ‘filter-free’ video in which she reminisces about a trick she previously performed and shared age 16.

Sporting only her signature feathery brows and bare skin, Eilish exclaimed:

‘Do you guys remember when I was 15 and I fit an entire ukulele head in my mouth? Shall we see if I can do it again? I very much doubt it, but I shall try.’

The short clip features numerous angles and cutaways as the pop phenom proceeds to fit the entire ukulele head in her mouth before she - understandably - doubles over in laughter.

This isn't the first time the star has shared candidly on video but for this particular clip Eilish showed off her ‘filter-less’ face, revealing her naturally radiant skin texture, pores and all. This is an unusual move for the singer, who is noted for her use of face bending filters and dark lights, which she often uses to set rule bending scenes.

Whether she chooses to opt to go ‘filter-free' again or not, we're always on board for more hilarious Tik Toks from Billie, especially if they involve ukeleles.
