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."
