In today’s world, fame is something we all want. For decades, it’s been one of the most sought after experiences. To feel wanted, needed and at the center of attention. Whether it be five minutes of fame or a lifetime, everyone can admit that at one time or another you have felt the desire to be famous. 

Billie Eilish,19, first rose to fame when her hit song, “Ocean Eyes”, went viral on Soundcloud in 2016. The singer, songwriter has since navigated the uncharted waters that come with rising to that level of fame and notoriety. 

Recently, Eilish starred in an Apple Series documentary, “Billie Eilish: The World’s Little Blurry”, directed by R. J. Cutler. The film started off by following Billie and her brother, Finneas, back before she became the star she is today. In those days, the siblings would create music in their bedroom. 

The documentary follows Billie’s life as a young 13 year old with only a few hundred listeners on soundcloud to now having millions of fans. The film does a great job of showing her upbringing and shining a spotlight on her early days, way before anyone knew her as the icon she is today. It really does a nice job of balancing showing her family/normal life as well as her life on tour and how she handles the pressure. 

Towards one scene in the film, Eilish addresses the anxiety she was facing before she rose to fame. She explained at one point how music and singing gave her an outlet. 

It is truly mind blowing and inspiring to see that both Billie and her brother Finneas created her first hit album in his bedroom, in their childhood home. It reminds me and I hope it motivates you all to remember that anything is possible.
