Billie Eilish is OK with a good friend making a risqué joke about her body.

After rapper Lil Yachty recently shouted out the "Bad Guy" singer-songwriter with a lyric about her breasts in his Drake collaboration "Another Late Night" earlier this year, Eilish responded in jest during a new interview with Variety.

Released on Drake's For All the Dogs album in October, "Another Late Night" finds Lil Yachty, 26, rapping the lyrics: "I let her go, she fine as hell but baby wasn't stylish / She had big tits like Billie Eilish but she couldn't sing."

Eilish, 21, has spoken publicly about choosing to hide her body with baggy clothes for years at the beginning of her career, but she didn't mind Yachty's playful lyric.

"I think it’s fun!" the Grammy winner told Variety for the outlet's The Power of Women issue. "I’m flattered! Yachty is my friend. Drake is my friend. It’s a joke. I do have big tits. I love it."

Elsewhere in the interview, Eilish opened up about her previous choice not to show off her body. “I wasn’t trying to have people not sexualize me,” she said.

"But I didn’t want people to have access to my body, even visually. I wasn’t strong enough and secure enough to show it. If I had shown it at that time, I would have been completely devastated if people had said anything," continued the "What Was I Made For?" performer.

Eilish also explained that while she has "deep connections" to women in her life and that she is "attracted" to women, she still struggles with her self-perception. "I’ve never felt desirable. I’ve never felt feminine," she said.

The Oscar winner continued to talk about how her body became a topic of public discussion. Eilish — who first hit the music scene at age 13 — notably wore a tank top when she was 16 years old, sparking an ongoing public conversation.

The musician noted that she began puberty at a young age and while she was used to it, the public's reaction impacted how she chose to dress. “I have big boobs. I’ve had big boobs since I was nine years old, and that’s just the way I am. That’s how I look,” said Eilish.

“You wear something that’s at all revealing, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, but you didn’t want people to sexualize you?’” She continued, “You can suck my ass! I’m literally a being that is sexual sometimes. F--- you!"
