More so than most of her fellow multimillionaires, Billie Eilish seems to actually give a shit about the future of the planet.
The 17-year-old multi-platinum wunderkind from Los Angeles has tied the release of her new video for "all the good girls go to hell" into both the UN’s 2019 Climate Action Summit in New York City and the upcoming Global #ClimateStrike, spearheaded by like-minded teen activist Greta Thunberg.
Making it clear that the future of the world we live in is very much on her mind at a crucial point in history, Eilish took to Instagram this morning to not only premiere "all the good girls go to hell", but also speak to her fans with the following: “Right now, there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention. Our earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, ice caps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning.” Read the full post on her Instagram Stories here.
The video for "all the good girls go to hell" suggests that getting kicked out of heaven isn't always pleasant. After being injected with a dozen or so hypodermic needles Eilish sprouts wings which do zero good as she plummets to Earth and then lands in what appears to be a Texas-oil tar pit.
As the landscape burns behind her like Kuwait circa-Desert Storm, she clambers unsteadily out of the sticky black hole, becoming stronger with each step, a quick baptism-by-fire turning her from wobbily newborn into an avenging angel—flexing powerful black wings—ready to kick some serious ass.
Heavenly or hellish? That's up for you to decide, keeping in mind that one might ask the same question of the planet we're living on in 2019.
