"All Good Girls Go To Hell": Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish is different from your typical teenage pop star.  Just 18 years old, her songs have gotten over 15 billion plays already.   Her music – “The way I wear my noose / Like a necklace” and “Take me to the rooftop / I wanna see the world when I stop breathing” -- is less “boy meets girl” and more dark and brooding. Instead of commanding an army of songwriters and producers, she writes and records her songs with just her older brother, Finneas (the two siblings were homeschooled growing up).  Her fashion style – oversized, baggy and anti-silhouette – is uniquely hers, although it's catching on with her many adoring fans.  

As Billie becomes a defining voice of Generation Z, she is also leading the charge on the issue of her generation: climate change.  According to public opinion pollster Scott Rasmussen, 67% of Gen Z voters believe it’s somewhat likely that Earth will become uninhabitable in the next decade.  Billie is using her platform to speak out and bring awareness in ways big and small.  Her 2020 Where Do We Go? world tour is going green.  All of the shows will have water stations for fans and the crew, and fans can bring refillable water bottles.  Plastic straws will be banned.   And a Billie Eilish “Eco-Village” will be at every concert, showing concertgoers how to join the fight against climate change.  

Her song "All Good Girls Go To Hell," streamed over 100 million times on YouTube, speaks to the horrors of climate change:

My Lucifer is lonely

Standing there, killing time
Can't commit to anything but a crime
Peter's on vacation, an open invitation
Animals, evidence
Pearly gates look more like a picket fence
Once you get inside 'em
Got friends but can't invite them

Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don't say I didn't warn ya

All the good girls go to hell
'Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven's out of sight
She'll want the devil on her team

My Lucifer is lonely

Look at you needing me
You know I'm not your friend without some greenery
Walk in wearing fetters
Peter should know better
Your cover up is caving in
Man is such a fool
Why are we saving him?
Poisoning themselves now
Begging for our help, wow!

Hills burn in California
My turn to ignore ya
Don't say I didn't warn ya

All the good girls go to hell
'Cause even God herself has enemies
And once the water starts to rise
And heaven's out of sight
She'll want the devil on her team

My Lucifer is lonely
There's nothing left to save now
My god is gonna owe me
There's nothing left to save now
