The Seattle times asks "Is Billie eilish, the first popstar to have her own wannabe phase since Madonna?


Recommended Posts

In, 1985 Madonna set a brief phase in fashion trends where every girl wanted to look like her. The rubber bracelets, the crucifixes, torn leggings and belly shirts that was torn or holy..

 

To say that had no impact Is a lie. 

 

Macy's had Madonna wannabe contests sponsored by MTV, a section of the store called Madonna land at the height of the fashion craze, the reason why it was huge,  it was actually affordable to dress like Madonna,  which was hugely it's commercial appeal and is part of pop culture forever..

 

Few times it's been done Spice girls,  Lady Gaga, but never as Imbeded as to culture as the initial Madonna look, which at Spirit has it's own costume and wings, titled the greatest 80s female pop star costume..

 

Well, according to Seattle times,  it seems 5x Grammy award winner Billie eilish with baggy sweats and oversize t shirts might be the modern day Madonna wannabe era for Generation Z. 

 

Here's why they called it the biggest female fashion pop star statement since Madonna..

 

February 4, 2020 - From the Seattle Times. 

Are Billie Eilish's fans the New "Madonna Wanna Be's"? Is Billie Eilish Music’s biggest fashion role model to young women and girls since Madonna? 

"Thousands of girls and young women ranging in age from under 10 to their early 20s are smitten with @billieeilish, remodeling themselves in her image, posting makeovers on Instagram and other social platforms. Her style clout has grown alongside it, on infectious display on Instagram, where she has millions of followers. It recalls the kind of fashion fervor rarely seen since Madonna’s early 1980s videos incited throngs of very young fans to shimmy their frames into merry widows and pile on stacks of bangles and cataracts of chains."

@Blackout2006 Billie is already iconic to be compared to the fashion trends madonna did.

Billie is just a trash (not in a bad way) version of Lana. She ain't in anyway on Madonna's nor Britney level. 

Also, what does this mean? :orangu_orangutan_ape:

How can u compare them tho? Did Lana set the pathway for artist like her? Definitely but except for them both having soft vocals, I do not hear anything from Billie's discography that sounds like Born To Die or Ultraviolence. Make it make sense

Literally every popstar has had a legion of wannabes; claiming that Billie's wannabes are the most abundant since Madonna's seems like a really strange argument, though. How would you even measure that? And no, using TikTok or social media stats wouldn't be a fair way to compare.

I'm an old-school Britney fan here. And there were girls that wanted to look like Britney from about 1999 to 2004. Although, since she reminded girls of their older sister, it was kinda provocative to admit that they were imitating her! 

There was even an article, or two, from 2001/2002, where there was a phenomenon dubbed The Britney Effect, where girls were dressing like Britney Spears, and maybe even Mariah Carey, during that era. Britney's effect was bigger, although I can see some teenage girls wanting to dress like Billie Eilish!

The Britney Effect would be a great username :groovin_dance_clap_alien_monster_party_costume_Halloween_spooky_scary:
