The Internet Is Divided Over the Color of Billie Eilish's Sneakers

Billie Eilish has discovered 2020's version of the “The Dress." You, of course, remember that 2015 moment when everyone in the world seemed to have an opinion on whether a specific dress was blue and black or white and gold. (For the record: I will die on the blue and black hill.)

Eilish was doing a Q&A with fans on her Instagram Stories when someone asked for her opinion on “The Dress,” which she stated was actually blue and gold to her. She then pulled out a pair of Nike sneakers that presented their own sort of optical illusion. She said her father thought they were pink and white, which is also what they looked like to me. However, the singer said they are actually mint green and white. To be fair, they also kind of look mint and pink.

It's a mystery!

“The whole internet is gaslighting me," Eilish said playfully. “I don't care what you think they look like, I care what they are."

She then took the shoe in question and another pair outside in the sunlight for comparison's sake—and…it seems like she was, indeed, right.

Obviously, people on social media had to weigh in. “Every time i look at billie eilish’s story those shoes are a different colour. HOW TF ARE THEY MINT AND WHITE AND NOT PINK AND WHITE!? IM GOING CRAZY. HELP,” one person tweeted. “Billie Eilish yelling at her followers for saying her shoes were pink and white is the only celebrity drama I want to see in my life EVER again,” another wrote.

Whatever the case, Eilish's shoes are very cute. Looks like people will just have to agree to disagree on this one, like they did with that damn dress. (But again, for the record, let me just say it was blue and black!)
