The Met Gala Returns With a Two-Part American Fashion Celebration

At the 2021 Met Gala, the category is Fourth of July realness. Representing the East Coast and the West Coast, Timothée Chalamet and Billie Eilish. “Chalamet, Eilish, Osaka, and Gorman have all developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the U.S.A.,” Vogue gushes. “After an isolating and challenging year, we are celebrating a newfound sense of freedom: to gather, to travel, and to get utterly dressed to the nines — or better yet, into the double digits.” The fashion magazine anticipates “anything-goes-gowns and dash of something star-spangled.” After a year of late stimulus checks, over 500,000 (preventable) deaths due to COVID-19, and protests against police violence, Vogue wants YOU to be proud to be an American. After being postponed in 2020 and 2021, The Met Ball will now be hosted on September 13, celebrating the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Part two of the exhibition, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion,” will open in 2022, with its very own Met Ball scheduled for the first Monday in May. The next generation of Americans (or Japanese Americans, in Osaka’s case) will be represented by the four award-winning co-chairs, each known for their own unique fashion statements. Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman will co-chair the event, which features the dress code “American Independence,” according to Vogue.

“For a gala that’s known for its timely dress codes, American Independence feels particularly meaningful,” Vogue says.

Billie Eilish’s Real Power Might Be Her Ability to Still Surprise

This summer’s Happier Than Ever, her sophomore follow-up, seems anxious to escape the looming shadow of “Bad Guy” — from the arrangements of songs we’ve heard so far to the trading of her signature slime-green-accented black hair for an icy platinum-blonde, the star of the forthcoming album’s cover. Eilish’s moves since the first album make a lot more sense in that light. During the close-up in the middle of the gorgeous, rustic, self-directed video for “Your Power,” which captures Billie Eilish’s palpable disgust as she delivers a haymaker — “Will you only feel bad when they find out? With every new single, it becomes clearer that she’s interested in longevity on her own terms and in making music that is both engaging and unpredictable. Her Bond theme “No Time to Die” proved that her wispy voice is strong enough to blow over an orchestra. It’s a folk ballad with a timely message. Today’s new single “Your Power” is another unexpected turn for Billie Eilish. Each week we uncover fresh hell: YouTube influencers acting inappropriately when the cameras cut off, politicians and execs leaving trails of mistreated aides and subordinates in their wake, record-industry figures continuing to find work in spite of egregious accusations and even documented misconduct. You can also see it as a larger commentary about the daily undercurrent of disappointing news. You could see “Your Power” as a deeply personal address to Eilish’s ex-boyfriend Brandon Adams, a 20-something dating a teenager at the time (who, in The World’s a Little Blurry, was revealed to have broken his hand in a fit of anger), making it one of the singer’s most direct and revealing bits of writing to date.

With every new single, it becomes clearer that she’s interested in longevity on her own terms and in making music that is both engaging and unpredictable. might’ve come on like an alien invasion, this unforeseen thing suddenly fully formed and impossible to escape, seeping out of supermarket PA systems, popping up in television commercial breaks, topping charts, and sweeping awards shows. In the chorus, Eilish addresses the listener directly, offering advice about mindful stewardship and thinking aloud about how it sucks that we have to navigate strange and ever-changing power dynamics and how we wear ourselves out conserving and consolidating influence over others. If you’ve seen the singer’s Apple TV+ documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, you know that this commercial success has been something of a tricky subject for her; Eilish’s brother and producer Finneas kept Interscope’s demands for a hit single a secret from his sister during the recording of When We All Fall Asleep, and at times, she was unsure about whether or not she wanted to make a follow-up. In the verses, she dresses down a man involved with a girl in high school, ruining her life for a thrill.

Billie Eilish and Rosalía Haunt the New Euphoria Track ‘Lo Vas a Olvidar’

Basically, a pandemic Friday night. Bilingual Billie Eilish did not come to play in her new music video for “Lo Vas a Olvidar” with Rosalía. “Dime si no me perdonas aún,” Billie whispers, meaning, “Tell me if you still don’t forgive me.” The video is even moodier than the song, with each woman alone in darkness, singing to the void. Let Billie Eilish and Rosalía transfix you in the above video. Slice me open and kill me softly with your song, ladies! The track is featured in the upcoming Euphoria special, “Part 2: Jules,” starring Hunter Schafer, out on HBO Max Friday and premiering on HBO on January 24. Billie gives us all Spanish 101 lessons in her haunting new track, trading lines with the mesmerizing Rosalía as they sing about heartbreak. The powerhouse vocalists are each known for deadly looking acrylics, and this video is no exception, with each fingertip looking like a glass sculpture. Billie Eilish and Rosalía are a match made in heaven, for both of their high-ass notes and long-ass nails. Related

Miley Cyrus Does a Smoky Cover of Billie Eilish’s ‘my future’

In the Billie x Cyrus crossover event we’ve all been clamoring for, Miley Cyrus has shown the new kids how it’s done, recording a cover of Billie Eilish’s sad-girl summer track “my future” for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Miley is no stranger to recording beautiful covers, and she’s done it again, proving why her parents didn’t name her Destiny Hope Musical Reinvention Cyrus for nothing. Like one of those Postmodern Jukebox videos that were popular years ago in the wake of Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby where a woman with cat-eye glasses would cover, like, “2 On” while doing the Charleston or whatever, Cyrus has transformed Eilish’s Gen-Z sensibility into something smoky, loungy, and jazzy, like an Amy Winehouse number with less technical ability. She also performed her own track, “Midnight Sky,” sadly sans disco wrecking ball. Related

Billie Eilish, the Chicks to Perform at Democratic National Convention

and 11 p.m. Photo: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Live Nation

If this year’s extremely important presidential election wasn’t enough to get you to tune in for the national conventions, maybe a little Billy Porter can sweeten the deal? “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering, and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.”

While the convention did not specifically say whether Billie, Billy, and the gang will perform remotely or on location, the ongoing coronavirus quarantine likely necessitates virtual sets, rather than actual stage time at Milwaukee’s Wisconsin Center, where the convention is headquartered. Eilish tweeted that her performance will take place on Wednesday, August 19, sometime during the convention’s nightly airing between 9 p.m. According to Variety, the 2020 Democratic National Convention announced its musical performers Friday, including Billie Eilish, John Legend, the Chicks, Billy Porter, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Maggie Rogers, Prince Royce, and Stephen Stills, all set to perform during next week’s four-day event. EST. It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country today under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president,” 2020 DNC program executive Stephen Cutter said in a statement. Some Maggie Rogers to entice you to watch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris accept the nom? The 2020 Democratic National Convention kicks off Monday, August 17 and runs through Thursday, August 20; you can read more about it here. “In just three days, we will kick off a Democratic National Convention that will look and feel very different than past conventions.

Billie Eilish’s Future Is in Good Hands

Most memorably, Eilish appeared during Global Citizen’s One World: Together at Home virtual benefit concert, performing a spectral cover of Nashville soul singer Bobby Hebb’s “Sunny,” a deceptively dark but ultimately positive tune, alongside her brother, Finneas. Are there more tricks like this in store for the second Billie Eilish album? broken beat jams like 4Hero’s “Hold It Down,” giving the song a pep that Eilish’s breakout debut album preferred to complicate with prescient lyrics about impending doom. This week’s release of her latest single, “My Future,” suggests that the O’Connell siblings have made good use of the quiet time. “I have to keep reminding myself that the future is ours,” Eilish told fans in an email explaining the inspiration for “My Future,” “and I know we want to do everything we can to make it better for everyone in the world, and for the world itself.”

The video, directed by Australian animator Andrew Onorato (who worked on Childish Gambino’s “Feels Like Summer” clip as well as cartoon segments in the Bethesda Softworks video games Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Fallout 4), reinforces the theme of growth, as Billie Eilish walks through a dreary Miyazakian forest at night, watching plants sprout as the light of dawn cuts through the trees overhead, touching the brush underfoot. The jazzy, chipper changeup in the back half of “My Future” evokes Miami bass tunes like the Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” and U.K. Otherwise, she’s been signal-boosting Black Lives Matter content and avoiding trouble, occasionally dropping a quarantine serve on Instagram, but mostly taking the break from the public she seemed to be very much in need of earlier this year. The new song, which Finneas notes on Instagram is the first piece of music the pair worked on during quarantine, gently nudges Billie Eilish in a different direction from the claustrophobic electronic sound of When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, revealing new possibilities for her voice (the way the hint of a full-throated shout at the climax of “No Time to Die” did earlier this year) as she blends nostalgic Disney-soundtrack melodicism with soulful blue notes. Like “Sunny,” a tune about silver linings written in 1963 in the immediate aftermath of the JFK assassination, “My Future” is a reminder that even though the present looks scary, there are better times on the other side. The sun rises as the beat changes in the middle of the song, transforming a somber lyric about seeking peace and reflection in solitude into a hint of excitement about what can come after the dark night.

Rihanna, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande Join Petition Calling for NY Police Reform

Sources

Billboard

Tags: One of those laws, proponents of police reform maintain, is New York State’s Civil Rights Law 50-A, which has been used to keep police personnel files, including information about any misconduct, “confidential and not subject to inspection or review” by the public. “An indispensable step is having access to disciplinary records of law enforcement officers. “We mourn the killing of George Floyd and the unnecessary loss of so many black lives before his. 50-A has been used far too often in the past and, without repeal, it will continue to be used to block justice. New York legislators are reviewing a number of bills this week, including 50-A, and on Monday, hundreds of members of the music industry, including Rihanna, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers, Lizzo, Meek Mill, Megan Thee Stallion, and Post Malone signed an open letter urging legislators to repeal the statute once and for all. New York statute 50-A blocks that full transparency, shielding a history of police misconduct from public scrutiny, making it harder to seek justice and bring about reform. Photo: Samir Hussein/WireImage

As the collective conversation spurred by this month’s Black Lives Matter protests evolves, so does the public’s understanding of the legal mechanisms that keep officers who commit police brutality entrenched in the system. It must be repealed immediately.”

“We were pleased to hear the Governor’s statement that 50-A should not prohibit the release of disciplinary records,” it continues. We must hold accountable those who violate the oath to protect and serve, and find justice for those who are victim to their violence,” their open letter reads. “But, clearly, it is not enough. When the Legislature returns this week, we urge members to recognize the moment, take one loud, bold, and meaningful step in addressing this systemic problem, and swiftly repeal 50-A.” You can read their full petition here.

Billie Eilish – you don’t get me high anymore Lyrics

[Verse 1: Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
I don’t like stayin’ at home
When the moon is bleeding red
Woke up stoned in the backseat
From a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
Everybody’s on something here
My godsend chemical best friend
Skeleton whispering in my ear
[Pre-Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Walk with me to the end
Stare with me into the abyss
Do you feel like letting go? I wonder how far down it is
[Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS, Billie Eilish]
Nothing is fun
Not like before
You don’t get me high anymore
Used to take one
Now it takes four
You don’t get me high anymore
You don’t get me high anymore
You don’t get me high anymore I wonder how far down it is
[Chorus: Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Nothing is fun
Not like before
You don’t get me high anymore
Used to take one
Now it takes four
You don’t get me high anymore
[Verse 2, Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]]
Runnin’ through emergency rooms
Spinning wheels and ceiling fans
My handshake, cellophane, landscape
Mannequin fakin’ it the best that I can
Cadillac, Cadillac red
No hands on the steering wheel
I’m crashing this save-a-ho puppet show
UFO obliterate the way I feel
[Pre-Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Walk with me to the end
Stare with me into the abyss
Do you feel like letting go?

Billie Eilish – ​​come out and play Lyrics

When we talk, you say it softly
But I love it when you’re awfully quiet, quiet
[Pre-Chorus]
You see a piece of paper
Could be a little greater
Show me what you could make her
You’ll never know until you try it
You don’t have to keep it quiet
[Chorus]
And I know it makes you nervous
But I promise you, it’s worth it
To show ’em everything you kept inside
Don’t hide, don’t hide
Too shy to say, but I hope you stay
Don’t hide away
Come out and play
[Bridge]
Look up, out of your window
See snow, won’t let it in though
Leave home, feel the wind blow
‘Cause it’s colder here inside in silence
You don’t have to keep it quiet
[Chorus]
Yeah, I know it makes you nervous
But I promise you, it’s worth it
To show ’em everything you kept inside
Don’t hide, don’t hide
Too shy to say but I hope you stay
Don’t hide away
Come out and play [Intro]
Hmm, hmm
[Verse]
Wake up and smell the coffee
Is your cup half full or empty?

Billie Eilish – ​you should see me in a crown Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bite my tongue, bide my time
Wearing a warning sign
Wait ’til the world is mine
Visions I vandalize
Cold in my kingdom size
Fell for these ocean eyes
[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one
[Verse 2]
Count my cards, watch them fall
Blood on a marble wall
I like the way they all
Scream
Tell me which one is worse
Living or dying first
Sleeping inside a hearse
I don’t dream
You say
Come over baby
I think you’re pretty
I’m okay
I’m not your baby
If you think I’m pretty
[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one
[Chorus]
Crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

Billie Eilish – when the party’s over Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Don’t you know I’m no good for you? I’ve learned to lose, you can’t afford to
Tore my shirts to stop you bleeding
But nothing ever stops you leaving
[Chorus]
Quiet when I’m coming home, I’m on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
[Verse 2]
Don’t you know too much already? I’ll only hurt you if you let me
Call me friend, but keep me closer
But call me when the party’s over
[Chorus]
Quiet when I’m coming home, I’m on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
[Verse 3 / Outro]
But nothing is better, sometimes
Once we have said our goodbye
Let’s let it go
Let me let you go
