Richer than ever? The hot truth of how much Billie Eilish is worth
Thought about what it’d be like to see your favorite moody pop princess go full glam? Well, that fantasy just became a reality!
In a hot photo shared on Instagram yesterday, Grammy-winning artist Billie Eilish stunned fans by unveiling a fresh, hot doll-like look. The twenty-one-year-old superstar was practically unrecognizable as she showed off a platinum blonde hairstyle that can only be described as Barbie-esque. The transformation is for her upcoming song featured on the hot soundtrack of the eagerly awaited Barbie movie.
Eilish, in true playful style, captioned the post, “What Was I Made For? SONG AND VIDEO COMING THIS THURSDAAAAYYYYY!!!” hinting at the excitement she herself feels for this musical surprise. Adding an “EEEEEEE!! i caaaaaaaan’t wait to see what you think!!”, it’s clear that the change was a challenging yet thrilling experience for the “Ocean Eyes” singer.
The image showed Billie wearing a vintage-style yellow short-sleeve dress, coordinating drop earrings, and a high ponytail that wouldn’t be out of place in a 1950s Barbie Dream House. She also shared a sneak peek of the accompanying music video on TikTok, showcasing her glamorous look and giving fans just a taste of the new song’s melody.
And, of course, the reaction from the fans was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. Comments ranged from excited shouts of “BLONDE BILLIE A COMEBACK?!?!” to approving nods towards her aesthetic shift with remarks like “Giving stepford wives in the hottest way”.
The surprise reveal comes on the heels of Eilish’s appearance at the Barbie premiere in Los Angeles, where she had sported a completely different look. Instead of the blonde hair and doll-like dress, Eilish arrived at the premiere wearing a menswear-inspired pink pinstriped shirt, a vibrant fuchsia tie, cropped black trousers, and cartoonishly large white sneakers.
Her hair was its usual jet black, flowing down in straight bangs, making the transformation for the music video even more stunning.
As fans eagerly anticipate the arrival of the Barbie movie, set to release on July 21, they’ll have an exciting musical appetizer to enjoy. Eilish’s new song drops a full week before the movie’s debut, giving Barbie girls everywhere the chance to play it on repeat while they wait.
From her groundbreaking music to her ever-evolving fashion, Eilish has always been one to make a statement. However, life in the limelight isn’t without its challenges. The “Happier Than Ever” singer has been candid about the struggles of dealing with online negativity, particularly about her appearance.
“Nobody can say anything about my body that I don’t have a stronger opinion about… It still hurts my feelings,” Eilish confided in an interview with Vogue. The seven-time Grammy winner has been open about the toll that criticism takes on her, admitting that if she had faced this level of scrutiny at a younger age, she might not have been able to cope.
In response to the hot but harsh criticisms, Eilish has found ways to channel her energy positively. This includes simple acts like taking baths and walking her dogs. However, her biggest step in self-care was a digital detox – she deleted all social media apps from her phone earlier this year. Despite having over one hundred and ten million followers on Instagram, the pop sensation admitted, “I don’t look at it anymore”.
Dealing with body shaming and negativity online can be a challenge for anyone, let alone a young star in the public eye. Billie Eilish’s decision to share her journey towards self-love and positivity is as brave as it is important.
So, as we groove to Eilish’s newest track, we’re left with a question to ponder: how might we all benefit from setting aside the distractions and focusing on what truly matters to us?
