The Los Angeles Times reports, the subversive anti-pop star turns 18 this month. That means she’ll be eligible to cast a vote in the U.S. for the first time in 2020, and she has her ocean eyes trained on the presidential race. The milestone isn’t lost on the influential musician given the outcome of the 2016 election, which saw President Trump elected and sowed an ample amount of skepticism in her.
“I’m going to do all my research. I don’t know what the right thing is, but I think it’s so funny when a lot of adults think that they know what’s right,” the “Bad Guy” singer said in an interview for The Times’ Grammy Awards issue of the Envelope.
“I’m pretty worried about ,” she added. “I think stupid Trump is probably going to get reelected, and that makes my heart break. You know, some people just love horrible people. It’s weird.”
Per Hollywood reporter, Billie Eilish’s big 2019 is culminating as she nears a deal with Apple TV+ for a documentary that comes with a $25 million price tag, according to multiple sources.
The film, which has already been shot, was directed by R.J. Cutler and produced in collaboration with Eilish’s label, Interscope Records, for a budget that one source pegs as being between $1 million and $2 million. It is expected to follow the 17-year-old singer-songwriter in the wake of the release of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, in March of this year. Cutler was granted deep access to Eilish’s private moments with family and behind-the-scenes of her public appearances.
