Due to her coming out as queer, American musician Billie Eilish lost a significant portion of her social media following. Over the course of the last month, the artist has lost around 117,350 social media followers. Recently, Eilish broke her silence on the same.
The singer remarked on the red carpet at Variety’s annual Hitmakers Brunch, “I didn’t realise people didn’t know.” “I’m just like, ‘Why can’t we just exist?'” she continued. I’ve been doing this for a while, but I never mentioned it. Whoops.
She appeared surprised when questioned about the piece, responding, “I saw the article and I was like, huh… I guess… I came out today! Alright, neat. She did, however, add that she was relieved that everyone was now aware. However, I find it thrilling because, well, I suppose people were unaware, but it’s still wonderful that they are. I feel so awkward talking about it! However, I’m here for the girls, Eilish declared.
The US pop artist talked about her difficulties relating to women, despite her love and attraction to them, in a cover interview published by Variety back in November. “I never thought I could connect with girls very well. They are really very dear to me. As people, I adore them. As people, they draw me in. I really am drawn to them,” she remarked.
Last year, Billie Eilish formally published Guitar Songs on all DSPs. Two songs: “TV,” which was previously heard and is a great song, and “The 30th,” which is a brand-new song. The release of “TV” in the United Kingdom and her unexpected live performance on her fully booked HAPPIER THAN EVER WORLD TOUR preceded today’s release. Before she and her brother FINNEAS performed the song for the first time, Billie informed the audience, “We haven’t played a new song live before it’s out since 2017 or 2018.”
It ended with live singing by her fans, recorded at Manchester’s AO Arena last month, which can hold twenty-one thousand people. These two tracks reminded listeners why 20-year-old Eilish is still one of her generation’s most beloved singer-songwriters. Like all the great songwriters before her, she writes and releases music that is both observational and reflective on society and her own life experiences. You may stream both songs right now.
“FINNEAS and I really wanted these to be yours as soon as possible,” Billie said to her admirers. And now, here they are! We also found that performing “TV” live was an incredible experience, so we included the audio from our first performance in Manchester into the song. Every time I hear it, I get shivers. We sincerely hope you enjoy the songs and appreciate you allowing us to share our music with you.
