Billie Eilish took to social media on Monday (Dec. 21) to hint that she’ll be releasing her sophomore album — but only if fans stop teasing her about her hair!
“OK, I have a fun story to tell you,” Eilish said with a grin on her Instagram Stories. “But first, f–k you guys. Stop making fun of me, oh my god! I’m f–king making you an album. I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair! Shut up!”
Of course, the pop star was was quick to make clear that her rant was all in good fun, and that her fans can expect a big change to her trademark black and lime-green locks soon enough. “I’m changing it after the doc comes out,” she promised. “It’ll be the end of an era. I’m gonna give you a new era. I have announcements to make, I got some s–t to put out. Anyway, doesn’t matter. Leave me alone. Let me live with my f–king hair that I’ve had for way too long. K? Shut the f–k up.”
Over the course of 2020, Eilish has released a number of new singles, including James Bond theme “No Time to Die,” standalone ballad “My Future” and disaffected kiss-off “Therefore I Am.”
Last week, the 19-year-old dropped the trailer for her upcoming documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, which is set to premiere in February 2021 both in theaters and on Apple TV+. Directed by RJ Cutler, the film will detail the singer’s meteoric rise to superstardom from indie pop darling through the release of her smash debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and her historic sweep of the 2020 Grammy Awards.
