For the “post a picture of…” Instagram challenge, Billie Eilish truly showed fans what is really saved in her phone. From brief videos of her in the studio to clips of her dog Shark, fans got a glimpse into what Eilish’s life is like.

However, it seems as though a few of her followers weren’t too keen on a few NSFW photos Eilish shared. She posted a screenshot of her phone background which is a photo of two nude women. As well, she showcased her drawing ability by showing off a few drawings of naked bodies she is proud of.

Of course, Eilish had the best response to her seemingly losing followers for her drawings. This week, Eilish shared the tweet about her drop in follower count with the words “LMFAOOOO y’all babies smh.”

(Photo via @Billieeilish on Instagram)Last week, Eilish seemingly confirmed that her WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? era is shortly coming to an end in a series of Instagram Stories. Along with talking about her dog Shark, she also teased that her new era may be arriving sooner than we think.

“I have a fun story to tell you, but first, fuck you guys,” she says. “Stop making fun of me oh my god, I’m fucking making you an album. I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair, shut up. I’m changing it after the doc (documentary) comes out, it will be the end of an era. I’m gonna give you a new era, I have announcements to make. I have some shit to put out. Anyway, it doesn’t matter. Leave me alone (and) let me live with my fucking hair that I’ve had for far too long.”
