Billie Eilish Reveals Her Deepest, Darkest Hopes and Fears in ‘The World’s A Little Blurry’
Via Apple+Billie Eilish hates writing songs. She likes singing, she likes having songs to sing, but she really can’t stand writing songs. This is one of many surprising things we learn about the preternaturally talented popstar in her new Apple TV+ documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry. Not only does she hate writing songs, but she hates writing songs with her older brother and collaborator, Finneas O’Connell.“It really tortures me,” she says in the kitchen of her childhood home, where the family is holding an impromptu meeting to address Eilish’s reluctance to write the hit song her label wants of her. “Especially with you, because you’re so good at it,” she adds to O’Connell.It’s not something one would expect to hear from the co-writer of some of the most emotionally expansive and resonant pop songs released in recent years.

Together, Eilish and O’Connell are a creative dream team. Read more at The Daily Beast.

QAnon believers’ attempts to organize elsewhere online hit another wall in January when Amazon pulled server support from conservative site Parler, taking the upstart social media network offline for a month.Faced with few other options, QAnon believers and other Trump supporters opened accounts on Telegram, a social media network and messaging app that was already popular with conservative figures banned from more mainstream platforms.Read more at The Daily Beast.
