It's no secret that Billie Eilish accomplished the unimaginable as a teenager, and she finally shared her story with fans in a documentary titled Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry. The film debuted on Apple TV+ on February 26th, and gives a closer look into Billie's rise to fame, which she made clear, did not happen overnight.
The documentary opens with a clip of Eilish singing Ocean Eyes, which she released when she was just 13-years-old. Her brother, Finneas, wrote the song, and the two have been working together ever since. Truthfully, Billie wasn't a very confident performer from the start. "This is so weird, you guys, I'm nobody," she said during one of her first performances. "I don't know why you like me."
The film includes many scenes that hone in on Billie's early career, especially the first album she recorded with Finneas. From the initial creative process to the final product, this duo did it all, but Eilish revealed that she had many doubts. "It sounds bad, and I sound horrible - I can't sound good because I'm not good," she said. But Finneas encouraged Billie to keep pursuing her dream, saying, "Lots of people would agree with me that you're very good."
Various scenes revealed that Billie is relatively hard on herself. For instance, there's a clip of her from Coachella in 2019 where she messed up some lyrics and then had a hard time forgiving herself after the performance, as her family tried to comfort and reassure her that everything would be ok. However, the film ended on a positive note, as Eilish celebrated everything she's accomplished, saying, "Life is good."
Billie's also working on a book with never-before-seen photos from her childhood. The book, called Billie Eilish, comes with an audiobook that gives fans a chance to hear some of her favorite childhood memories. Between the documentary and the book, which will be released in May, Billie's giving fans a whole new perspective into her life, and we can't wait to find out more about the artist!
