If you don’t know who Billie Eilish is, I’ll give you a little bit of background. Billie is a 16-year-old singer and songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Her music falls under the Electronica/Electropop genre and since 2016 has gotten bigger by the minute. Despite her pop genre, you won’t catch her singing any songs that sound like Taylor Swift. She is already selling out shows on tour so it’s time to get in on this fandom before she starts selling out stadiums. Here are some of the reasons why:
1. Her Voice
Let’s start with the obvious. This girl is TALENTED. Her voice was hand-crafted by angels and she is only 16 and writing hits with meaning and emotion you would not expect from someone her age. She tells stories about her and her family (all musicians) writing and singing together. And in that talented environment, there’s no wonder she is wise beyond her years. Her first hit “Ocean Eyes” came out when she was only 13 and is still one of her most popular songs to date.
2. Her Style
Billie Eilish is no cookie-cutter GenZ star for many reasons but the biggest one is her unique and SUPER cool style. If we had to categorize it in an ancient term it would be ‘tomboy’ but I think we are a bit more fluid today and can just say that she makes you want to throw out every dress you’ve ever owned and buy designer basketball shorts. She is also stunningly beautiful with bright blue eyes, flawless skin and silver hair. So, basically, she is goals. All of the goals.
3. Her Authenticity
This girl is cool and confident and it shows every time she steps into an interview. Billie admits she has a lot to learn in life and music, has made mistakes and is growing up and constantly changing. She said in an interview, “I have definitely said ‘yes’ to things I shouldn’t have. But now I’ve learned to say no. I’m not scared to walk away from something if “it’s not who I want to be.” There are people in their 20’s who still haven’t learned that lesson. She will make every teenager realize it’s cool and ok to be who you are unapologetically and every adult realize that we have no reason to lose hope in the younger generation.
Influencers Of Today
With all the YouTube stars and social media influencers of today, it’s hard to find someone young working hard for their trade. Many of them deceive their fans or use software to spy on text messages. But this 16-year-old singer and songwriter has dedicated her life to music and her fans. She’ll remind you of the days when music was more than something to listen to at a party. She is who you turn to when you are happy, sad or need an escape. To sum it all up, I’m 10 years older than her and still want to be her when I grow up.
