    Billie Eilish Calls Off 2021 World Tour After Delays Amid Covid-19 Pandemic

    WENN

    The ‘Therefore I Am’ singer has decided to scrap her entire world tour after pushing it back a couple of times because of the worldwide coronavirus health crisis.

    Dec 5, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Billie Eilish has cancelled her entire “2021 Where Do We Go? World Tour”.
    The pop superstar previously axed the March (20) dates of her tour due to the coronavirus pandemic, but had been hoping the situation would have improved enough for her to head back out on the road later this year with a European tour scheduled to begin in early July.
    The “Therefore I Am” hitmaker then decided to postpone the shows until 2021, starting in March.
    However, she and her team have now decided to call off the whole run and provide refunds to her fans.
    In a statement posted on her social media pages, the Grammy-winner announced, “Hi guys. i wish that I could have seen you on tour this year. i’ve missed performing for you and being on stage so much i can’t even tell you.”

    “we’ve tried as many different scenarios as possible for the tour but none are possible and, although I know so many of you want to hold onto your tickets and vip passes, the best thing we can do for everyone is to get the money back into your hands as soon as we can.”
    “Keep an eye on your email for more info from your point of purchase and when we’re ready and it’s safe we’ll let you know when everyone will be able to purchase tickets again for the next tour. (sic)”
    She signed off, “I love you so much, stay safe, drink lots of water, wear a mask (sic).”
    The tour originally included a string of shows in the U.K. this summer, including three nights at Manchester Arena and four at The O2 Arena in London.
    While the “Bad Guy” hitmaker’s European tour was set to kick-off in Spain on 9 July.
    Billie initially began her tour in North America at the beginning of March as planned, but after playing her run of shows in Miami, Florida, she was forced to announce the postponement of the rest of the month’s concerts, as well as those scheduled for April, before shifting the run to 2021.

    Billie Eilish Sneaks Into Empty Mall in 'Therefore I Am' Music Video

    [embedded content]

    The ‘When the Party’s Over’ singer is tapped to return to the American Music Awards stage for this year’s ceremony on Sunday, November 22 to perform her brand new song.

    Nov 13, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Billie Eilish finds the perks of the coronavirus lockdown in a freshly-released music video for her new song “Therefore I Am”. The Grammy Award-winning artist is exploring a deserted mall all by herself in the clip, which was premiered on Thursday, November 12.
    The 18-year-old roams the empty Glendale Galleria shopping mall, a familiar stomping ground for Eilish during her early teen years in California. She raids food from Wetzel’s Pretzels, Hot Dog on a Stick and Chipotle before getting caught by a security guard.
    “I’m not your friend or anything/ Damn, you think that you’re the man/ I think, therefore, I am,” she sings in the chorus. The video ends with Eilish scrambling to run away from the security guard, still with the foods she has stolen in her hands.

    In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Eilish said the song is “very, very up for interpretation.” Looking forward to her fans’ reactions to her song, she admitted, “I’m very curious to see what people get from it and also what they feel when they hear it. I don’t know. But yeah, it’s a little mean. I love it.”
    The song follows Eilish’s previous single “My Future”, which was released last July. In the softer song, she sings about walking away from a relationship and deciding to put herself and her future first. She also released “No Time to Die”, a song she recorded for an upcoming James Bond movie of the same title, in February.
    Eilish is tapped to perform her brand new song “Therefore I Am” at the 2020 American Music Awards (AMAs), which is going to take place on Sunday, November 22. She is nominated for two awards, favorite artist – alternative rock and favorite social artist, at the ceremony, which will broadcast live from Los Angeles at The Microsoft Theatre at 8 P.M. ET/PT on ABC, with Taraji P. Henson serving as the host.
    The “Bad Guy” hitmaker is also scheduled to perform live on iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball 2020 on December 10. The event will be carried live on over 90 iHeartRadio stations and as a live video stream.

  • Alicia Keys Gave Billie Eilish a Call After Seeing Her Discomfort Following Grammy Wins

    Instagram

    The ‘No One’ singer can relate to Billie’s uneaseness at Grammy wins as she felt the same way after her 2002 triumphs so she made sure to let the younger star know she deserved the awards.
    Sep 20, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Alicia Keys called Billie Eilish the day after the Grammy Awards to reassure her that she deserved all of her success.
    The “Fallin’ ” singer was on hand to present Billie with the Best New Artist gong at the ceremony earlier this year (20), and the “Bad Guy” star’s clear discomfort at taking home five prizes at the music awards reminded Alicia of how she felt when she did the same back in 2002.
    “There you are, with all these accolades and all this celebration – and you don’t know exactly what to do with it, or even why was it you,” Alicia told the BBC. “It feels almost like it’s overkill. You think, ‘Spread it around, don’t just give (the awards) to me,’ you know? I definitely recognise that, I understood that.”

    So upon sensing Billie’s feelings surrounding her victories, Alicia gave her a ring the next day.
    “I wanted to congratulate her because I was so happy for her, because not only does she have a beautiful voice but she’s not trying to fit in to the crowd – and that’s such an important thing to see,” she explained. “So when I called her I said, ‘Don’t for one second think that you didn’t deserve this. You deserve all of this, and don’t forget it.’ ”
    “Because I remember I definitely felt like that for a long time. I thought I didn’t deserve what I was receiving, I didn’t deserve the greatness that I had inside of me.”

  • Billie Eilish Credits 'The Office' for Giving Her 'Safe Space'

    Instagram

    The ‘Bad Guy’ hitmaker is such a superfan of the TV comedy that she watched the entire U.S. version, which was originally aired from 2005 to 2013, 14 times, often on her iPhone.
    Sep 15, 2020
    AceShowbiz – “The Office” helps transport Billie Eilish to a “safe space” when life is getting her down.
    The “Bad Guy” hitmaker is such a superfan of the TV comedy that the producers of podcast series “An Oral History of The Office” created a special finale all about her love of the programme, titled “Beauty in Ordinary Things… – The Legacy of The Office (2013-Present)”.
    “The Office” stars and revolving podcast hosts, Brian Baumgartner and Steve Carell, sat down with their famous superfan days after she scooped six Grammy Awards in February, and she was so stoked she offered to give them one of her trophies.
    “I don’t need all of them, you can have one,” she giggled.
    But “The Office” is serious business for Eilish, who revealed that tuning in “takes me away from the reality of my life,” adding, “It’s a safe space.”
    She also confessed to watching the entire U.S. version of the show, which aired from 2005 to 2013, 14 times, often on her iPhone, adding it’s not a new obsession.
    “Honestly, because I’ve been getting older, every time I watch it I understand something new, because I started at (age) 12,” the 18-year-old adds. “Most of the things that I know are because of ‘The Office’. I swear to God.”
    Billie’s mum Maggie even popped up on the FaceTime call to confirm that her daughter watches “The Office” “day and night,” while series stars Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski also dropped by to share some of their favourite memories.
    The final episode of “An Oral History of The Office” drops on 15 September.
