Billie Eilish’s fans have something big to expect next year, as the singer-songwriter drops her new documentary “Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry” on cinemas and Apple TV+ in February 2021.
While we are still kept in the dark about the theme of the documentary as of the moment, the feature-length film is expected to look at the life of the young singer.
The 18-year-old “Don’t Smile at Me” singer has been promoting the upcoming film for most of the year. She also made the first announcement in December 2019.
R.J. Cutler helms the documentary. It was a joint production with Eilish’s label Interscope Records and Darkroom, This Machine, as well as Lighthouse Management & Media.
While the trailer revealed little information about the film, Billboard reported that multiple sources claimed that the Los Angeles-based singer was paid $25 million to film the documentary.
In an interview with NME, Eilish opened up about the documentary. “I’ve seen no part of it. I’m terrified. I’m freaked out. They’ve been filming since like July of 2018… who has that much footage of them that they’ve never seen? I’m terrified,” she said.
The statement comes after her confession about still having major issues regarding her body image. But she is slowly beginning to accept her body type.
She also talked about her insecurities with GQ magazine, where the Bad Guy singer talked about the interlude of her video for Where Do We Go? Tour. In the video, she stripped down to her bra while standing in a surging black liquid. “I definitely didn’t want it to come off as, ‘Oh, now I am 18 now I like my body.’ I still have huge issues with my own body,” she shared.
“Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created, because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman.”
She also explained that the tour video is meant to convey that message. It is her way of saying that there is a person underneath all those clothes that her fans do not usually see. “Isn’t that a shame? But my body is mine and yours is yours. Our own bodies are kind of the only real things which are truly ours. I get to see it and get to show it when I want to,” she also shared.
In the short film, Not My Responsibility, the short film launched during her 2020 world tour, Eilish was seen wearing a black hoodie that she peeled off slowly until she was only wearing a bra.
“Isn’t that a shame? But my body is mine and yours is yours. Our own bodies are kind of the only real things which are truly ours. I get to see it and get to show it when I want to,” Eilish said in the narration.
Aside from the upcoming film, fans also celebrated the Gen Z icon’s latest victories when she became the first woman who won all Grammy’s Big Four awards in one night this year, including Album of the Year for “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” and the Record of the Year and Song of the Year awards for “Bad Guy.” She also snagged the best new artist award from the prestigious music award giving body.
