Sure, Billie Eilish is a “role model” for many kids around the world but the underlying meaning in the psychology of the lyrics of her new song ‘Therefore I Am’ is outright terrifying. Pardon the crude parlance but it is one thing to be completely happy with the way your body is. It is another to release a video on how one doesn’t need to take care of his/her body and can eat anything they want to, even the unhealthy items, thereby promoting gluttony.
In the lyrics of the song ‘Therefore I Am’, the underlying meaning implies that a person can do anything that makes his/her life more fulfilled. The music video of ‘Therefore I Am’, however, is promoting gluttony suggesting that one can live an unhealthy life without taking care of their bodies if that is what makes them happy.

Introduction: Therefore I Am Lyrics
The lyrics of ‘Therefore I Am’ totally speaks volume for the “bad guy” in addressing the beauty standards set by society for women. We totally agree that beauty standards are toxic. However, for the sake of accepting our body the way it is, we shouldn’t go out of our way to eat unhealthy bakery items like Billie Eilish does in her music video. It is one thing to suggest self-love and body positivity. However, it is another to suggest that one can stop taking care of his/her body and eat anything they want.
She suggests that her behavior is okay even if it means that the food you’re consuming might make you obese or unhealthy. This is totally unacceptable and Billie Eilish and her team should be ashamed of what they are promoting to their core audience, mostly children. Just because Billie Eilish is powerful enough to not care about her body doesn’t mean the overweight children should the message she is trying to send.

Therefore I Am Lyrics Meaning
Let’s dissect the meaning behind the lyrics of the song ‘Therefore I Am’ by Billie Eilish section-wise in detail. Before that let’s point out a few facts from the song.
Facts About ‘Therefore I Am’ Song by Billie Eilish
- The music video was filmed inside the shopping mall, Glendale Galleria. Billie Eilish has been a very loyal customer since she was young.
- She actually admits the video to be careless and this is not the type of influence her core audience full of children should be exposed to.
- A self-coordinated music video was delivered close by the tune, in which Eilish is indicated meandering through a vacant shopping center. She is energetically snatching bites and beverages as she moves past the stores. At last, she is reprimanded by shopping center security and runs out.
We all saw this coming, the second version of her attempting to be a “bad guy”. At least the song ‘bad guy’ was entertaining. This new release is problematic in every instance. Billie Eilish seems to be reluctant to the idea of changing herself by listening to the opines of people. She’s rather making it clear that she has no regard for other people’s opinions about her, even at the times when those opinions are not necessarily the bad ones.
The unwillingness to change could have stemmed up from the narcissism arising from the power and the level of influence she has. She wants everyone to stop talking about her. However, considering her influence over children, her projection on to them being “gluttony is acceptable” is very concerning and disturbing. Let me remind you that willingness to change is the only way for a person to grow up and recreate themselves.
The rude and nihilistic approach to people giving you advice, even if they are unsolicited, is a limited way of living one’s life. It’s one thing to be confident enough to live by one’s principles and it’s another to not be able to hear anything that someone else has got to say. Not everyone wants to control your freedom if they are telling you to not opt for an unhealthy diet. So, guys and girls, go hit the gym. Do not listen to Billie Eilish on this.
It’s true that Billie Eilish has been getting a ton of backlash from the media when it comes to her body and the way it looks. But promoting gluttony to children is not the way to confront media and exert your power. She thinks the articles are ruining her image. However, she is doing so herself by promoting one of the seven deadly sins to her core audience full of children who would religiously watch Eilish yawn for hours.
Conclusion: Therefore I Am Meaning
The vibe presented in the song ‘Therefore I Am’ in the form of gluttony is unacceptable. There are people willing to change to a healthier lifestyle because of the beauty standards set by society. The music video as such is undermining obesity and overweight people.
