Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry,’ tells the coming of age story behind one of the biggest pop stars in the world.
Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry comes three weeks following the release of The New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears. Like Eilish, Spears too was all but 17 when she dropped her debut album (…Baby One More Time). Her personal and legal turmoil is a cautionary tale on how the music business exploited a young star, and the hand media played in shaping her career and downfall. Sadly, Spears didn’t have social media back then to share her story. She couldn’t reclaim the narrative the tabloids and her fans somehow felt entitled to. Taking a cue from Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift in recent years, Eilish centralizes her own narrative in the new Apple TV+ documentary – Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry.

Exhausted yet fiercely empathetic, Billie in one scene experiences a bout of Tourette Syndrome, twitching uncontrollably as fans hound her for selfies. And in that moment, even if you aren’t familiar with her, there’s nothing you’d want to do more than leap through your screen and give her a hug.

Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry is astonishingly heartfelt — more than a story about the fallout of fame, it’s a coming-of-age tale about a teenager, and the rare bond that she shares with her brother.
Billie Eilish was 14 when she burst onto the scene with the SoundCloud sensation, “Ocean Eyes.” By 17, the LA-born artist had solidified her standing alongside sad-pop songstresses like Lana Del Rey and Lorde with her debut record When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Billie Eilish may only be 19, but her first documentary is over two hours long.
The first half focuses on everything before Eilish released her record-smashing debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, while everything post-intermission (yes, there is an intermission) shows how her personal and professional life got even crazier after its release.
Every single person who watched the documentary is left in a sudden rush of emotions and awe. Fans have overflowing praise for the two-hour-long documentary.
