So, by now, I’m sure we’re all familiar with Billie Eilish. If you’re not, then what’re you waiting for?
This pop sensation has had 14 Billboard chart topping hits, including her seven time platinum single, “Bad Guy”.
Recently, Eilish took to social media, to promote her latest release: “Therefore I Am”. Three days ago, an interview with Genius was released, in which Eilish explains the meaning of her song.
In general, Eilish’s music has this deep undertone full of emotions. Fans may listen to “Ocean Eyes” and start crying, while others listen to “I Love You” and start overanalyzing their own relationships.
Well, this time, Eilish wanted to leave one of her songs open for interpretation. According to Eilish, this was the most authentic song that she’s ever released, because it allows fans to get an insight into who she is. Although we love the mysterious side of Eilish, she’s still only 18. Minus having riches and fame, she’s just like any other 18-year-old. She likes to joke around, have fun, and just live life to the fullest.
“I feel that I sound very, like, I’m just fucking around. I’m just joking and shit. You know that, ‘Stop, what the hell are you talking about?’ It’s like, come on. It’s so real and natural and don’t take me seriously, you know? I love it.”
Eilish has always been open with her fans, but this is a new side that we’re seeing of her, and the fans are here for it.
The music video was also incredibly unique and powerful. The entirety of the video took place in a mall, and Eilish was going around to different food stands, grabbing whatever she can find (donuts, Chipotle chips, lemonade, fries, etc). While the concept was most likely meant to be fun and playful, it’s great that Eilish left the song open for interpretation, because fans have theories.
One fan noted the date that the music video was released on. “Therefore I Am” premiered on November 12th. Meanwhile, on November 13th, fans of Eilish celebrated the one year anniversary of her album, “everything I wanted”.
The fan’s theory was that this song was purposely meant to drop before the one year anniversary. This way, the title of her new single could tie into the title of her previous album, making it “Therefore I am everything I wanted”.
Eilish is known for her baggy clothes. During an interview with Dazed earlier this year, Eilish admitted that the reason why she started wearing baggy clothes, “was ’cos I hated my body”.
However, last month, a paparazzi photographed Eilish walking around in a tank top and shorts, and unfortunately, there was a lot of negative commentary, regarding the singer’s physical appearance.
Instead of putting herself down and succumbing to the internet trolls, Eilish reposted an uplifting TikTok onto her Instagram story, in which a girl discusses ‘normalizing real bodies’.
The fan also theorized that the concept of food in the mall could represent a clapback towards all of the body-shamers (quite an interesting theory).
Actually, speaking of TikTok, Eilish has created quite the platform onto the short form app. Eilish showed up onto many people’s “for you pages”, after posting her first TikTok on Thursday. She used the ‘time warp scan’ effect, and inflated her nose. By the eruption of laughter, it’s safe to say that she enjoys TikTok.
The TikTok already has 79 million views, and the comment section is quite hilarious. Half of the comments are from verified creators — who gushed over the fact that Eilish is now on the app. The other half of the comment section are by fans who noticed Eilish’s username. We regret to inform you that it’s not “wherearetheavocados”, but rather, “coochiedestroyer5”.
Then, just last night, Eilish uploaded a second TikTok. This video showed off her unique talent of being able to fit an entire ukulele head inside of her mouth.
Absolutely hilarious! Maybe 2020 is turning out to be a better year than we thought.
