Billie Eilish’s world is a little clearer in new documentary
A glimpse behind the curtain shows us the journey of Billie's career.
As fans, we feel like we know our favorite artists because of the connection we have with their music.
However, in reality, there’s so much we don’t know about them and in Billie Eilish‘s new documentary on Apple TV, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, we are given a glimpse behind the curtain and follow the singer’s journey what life is like on the road, performing onstage, and life at home with her family as she writes and records the album that changed her life.

In her new documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, the film first starts with Billie singing her single ‘Ocean Eyes.’ At only 13 years old when this song was first released online, it gained traction like no other. Three years later, in 2018, we see Billie performing in Salt Lake City.
It then jumps to an interview, with Billie talking about her concert and intimately shares:
“I’d look into the crowd and I see all these faces. So many different feelings and heartbreak. And every single person in there, you know, is going through something good or bad, or horrible or amazing, you know? And the least I can do is make art that I make because I have the same problems.”
The film then cuts to Billie and her brother FINNEAS recording her single ‘bury a friend‘ and Billie gives viewers an inside look at her journal that holds the many ideas she has for her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
But if there’s one thing that her journal can’t show and only the film can, it’s that the journey of one’s career having so much fame isn’t that simple.
As the film progresses and shows more live performances, interviews, and recording sessions, we viewers get to see the emotional and physical toll it takes on Billie. The highs and lows of a show not going well to dealing with heartbreak, we get to see it all unfold.
When the film reaches its second-half, viewers then get to see that Billie makes her way to a better place than when we first saw her at the beginning of the documentary. Billie creates friendships with Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, both of who have been in her position and know what it’s like when the pressures of fame hit hard. And we then get to see her hard work pay off as she wins in every category that she’s nominated in at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
Billie’s new documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, is authentic and honest, and this is even more true as she openly talks about her mental health and Tourette’s syndrome. And because we fully get to see what life is like for one of music’s most innovative artists, turns out, her world isn’t a little blurry, it’s a lot clearer.
