Billie Eilish came out of nowhere last year and became one of the biggest music stars in the planet, resulting in Apple paying the 18-year-old $25 million to shoot a documentary on her for Apple TV+.

Well, the official trailer has now arrived:
Pretty crazy to think any company would shell out $25 million on a documentary about an 18-year-old who is in the relative infancy of her life, but I guess that just goes to show how massive Billie Eilish is. Which maybe isn’t all that surprising considering she’s quite uniquely talented.
Admittedly I wasn’t feeling her at first because her breakthrough song ‘Bad Guy’ sounds nothing like the rest of the music, but then I watched a couple of her live performances and it’s way different to her recorded material. The girl can actually sing. Check out this performance on Howard Stern, for example:
Considering she became a household name and reached super mega-stardom at 17, it will be interesting to see where her career goes from here. The guy behind the Apple documentary, RJ Cutler, is a documentary veteran so people are expecting this to be really well made:
Even if it’s a flop, and even her music from 2021 onwards flops, it won’t really matter because her account is +$25 million thanks to this Apple documentary. And that’s essentially just a side hustle to her main gig of writing and recording music. Alright for some eh? Well played, Billie Eilish.
