Whether you believe it or not, she is only 17 and already an anti-pop icon. Her age was something I just couldn’t get out of my mind, after hearing her single “Ocean Eyes” and digging the Internet to find out more about this new-found gemstone. Born December 18, 2001, Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell acts much more mature in her videos than she really is.
Billie Eilish & Justin Bieber Collaboration
It’s out, it’s fresh, and it conquered the audience. Billie confessed in many interviews that Justin Bieber is one of the heroes of her childhood, and her dream has finally come true. The two of them met at the Coachella festival earlier this year, and now they’ve done the remix of one of her most famous songs, Bad Guy. This single’s artwork? Pretty badass!

What’s It with All the Creepy Videos?
Her voice is outlandish, just like her personality. But if you want to really get to know the true Billie Eilish, you must watch her videos. On top of my mind, You Should See Me in a Crown is definitely the most frightening video signed Billie Eilish. Beware, people with arachnophobia, you’d better just play the song and look away! That video does not only feature spiders, but you can also actually see them crawl all over Billie, including her face. At some point, a spider crawls right out of her mouth, and the scene is jaw-dropping, regarding the fact that she really went through hell and back to tape that. In an interview about the video, she states that the spider really had a name: “His name was like Tom or Brad or something.”
Other honorable mentions under the creepy hashtag would be the Bury a Friend video, in which Billie gets tens on injections stuck in her back – ouch! – Or When the Party’s Over, in which she cries black tears, and that’s no computer work – this one was actually inspired by a fan-made drawing. She does all the “stunts” in her videos herself. Why? Because she wants to overcome all her fears – oh, she also has Tourette – and appear frightening and rough to the public.
The When We All Fall Asleep World Tour
The ongoing tour has started on April 13, 2019, in Indio, California at Empire Polo Club as part of Coachella. This is the third concert tour in support of her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Published initially on SoundCloud on November 18, 2015, Ocean Eyes was written by her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, for his band. But then Billie got into the picture, and he realized that the song sounded way better with a feminine voice. Billie and Finneas make a great team as they’ve co-written many of Billie’s songs and collaborate or even tour together for some concerts.
Rosenzweig of Vogue stated about Ocean Eyes that “It’s a profound description for a 14-year-old, and it’s led to an enormous amount of interest in her debut song – as well as the singer herself. Like the title suggests, her airy soprano vocals also conjure up thoughts of the ocean washing over the song’s mellow percussion and minimalist synths.”
