    Billie Eilish - The Official Story - Told By Her | Vevo LIFT

    "Sometimes I see videos of myself from even a year ago, and I don't even recognize that version of myself." Forget pigeonholing Billie Eilish. She zigs while you zag, forcing a periodic reassessment of your take on her. And know what? That’s the sign of a true artist, someone whose curiosity is in lock-step with their creativity. "I want to evolve," she explains in our exclusive LIFT interview. "I want to create new parts of myself, shed them and then create something new." It’s a long way from the heart-on-sleeve delicacy of "Ocean Eyes" to the eerie rumble of "you should see me in a crown," so here's a heads up: Billie's always on the move; the LA teen has steadily widened her sound in the last two years. When her name first bubbled up in 2016, her music had both an ethereal vibe and a wisdom that belied her years. That's when we began falling for her, and shot our Vevo Meets profile. After hearing her the depth of her 'don't smile at me' debut, we invited Billie to become one of our DSCVR artists, and the riveting take of "my boy" she made in Brooklyn last fall remains a must-see. Now she's turned another corner. The dreamy aura she brought to her recent duet with Khalid on "Lovely" was stunning, and the swag and authority that define her new LIFT performances serves the music well. In the last few weeks, we've delivered performances of "you should see me in a crown" and "bitches broken hearts." Now check out our intimate profile, where Billie is wonderfully candid about herself. "I'm not a person who gets scared easily, but there are a lot things that are fuckin' terrifying about where I'm at right now."

                  Look billie, i know you had some bad moments, but please, make songs that DON'T make 14 yo girls depressed.
                  I mean, my GF thinks i don't care about her and that i cheat on her because i don't text her back, but i'm just playing a match of Apex legends.

                    I am a father and a middle aged Midwestern man. First, I was introduced to your work by my daughter, and later through various appearances by you on YouTube. Last night I finally found the time to watch and listen to a few of your videos. WOW!! Color me impressed. I remember the angst of being a teenager, and let me confirm, you have your finger on the pulse. You would have been my dream artist when I was in high school. The emotional impact of your work is stunning and I found myself moved to tears more than once. You are a gift to your fans. Please stay true to yourself and ignore your detractors.

I once saw this post on my Facebook that said you should change yourself if enough people think a part of you is toxic.... I say bullshit, be who you want, if they don’t like you fuck em, you deserve better than them, you are better than them!!

                                                                  I feel like whatever Billie gets she appreciates it is like the way she treats her fans she like is the most amazing person. She doesn’t just ignore like other celebrities. I think Billie was born to be a celebrity, and I’m not talking about singing I’m talking about the way she treats her fans and life , but in a good way. Literally my sister when she sees Billie on tv like when Billie went to the iheartradio my sister cried, and keep in mind that was just the tv like that’s how much she loves her. Like if she pops up on the radio my sister screams, So my mom was like I have to take her to a Billie Eilish concert and we surprised her and I also enjoyed it. Now every time I see people meeting Billie I like cry because I love the way she actually cares for us basically. Like many others are the same but she has that specialty. Celebrities normally don’t appreciate that we make them famous and I’m not saying I’m ungrateful for the artwork of music they give us I’m saying we basically are the ones that press that like on a video or the follow, subscribe button. Most celebrities at first love there’s fans. But then when it comes to them making money they just leave and you know buy what they want I’m not saying they can’t buy anything I’m just saying after a while they don’t have ideas and they forget about what they were given. So Billie I want you to know that I love you 💕❤️😘 and whatever you do in life I will still have a smile for you. Sorry for the people who don’t like to read a lot because your probably on summer brake but here and then just read what people have to say. If your wondering how old I am I’m eleven. That’s me on the pic, I’m a model but not like a real one because for me to be able to start actually doing like commercials I need to pay 5,000 and my dad already paid them like 10k. For my classes 😕 But you know you only live once so he said he was considering doing it 🙂 but i don’t want to get my hopes up
