“The World’s A Little Blurry”: Billie Eilish like we’ve never seen her before. Los Angeles, California – On Thursday, Apple TV+ finally released The World’s a Little Blurry, the eagerly-awaited new documentary about multiple Grammy-winning singer Billie Eilish.
The documentary by RJ Cutler chronicles the first three years of the Gen Z sensation’s music career, including never-seen-before footage from her childhood and behind-the-scenes insights.
A special focus is placed on Eilish’s record-breaking 2019 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which she recorded with her producing partner brother Finneas in their childhood bedroom.
From the beginning, much of the documentary zooms in on Eilish’s family who have played a significant role in keeping her grounded, as she has struggled with depression, Tourette syndrome, and the ups and downs of teenage life – all of it in the spotlight.
Being placed on a pedestal in front of millions of people didn’t help to ease the mental health issues she was dealing with.
For instance, Eilish’s style choices – a smack in the face of a sexist industry – are an attempt to force focus on her music instead of her body and looks.
But this borought attacks from people who saw her rejection of revealing clothes as an invitation to body-shame her. The 19-year-old superstar, however, knows how to push back.
Early on in the doc, she makes it clear wanting to self-direct her music videos, and does so with her song everything i wanted.
The portrait both compares and contrasts to the recently released documentary Framing Britney Spears, which shows tear-jerking footage of the pop icon’s struggle for basic control over her life during her rise to fame.
