Billie Eilish, the 19-year-old highly successful artist, has recently come out with a documentary that highlights the creation of her first album, “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO,” and the journey she took through the process.  

Released on February 26, the documentary is titled “The World’s A Little Blurry,” and can be found on Apple TV+. 

Watching this documentary, I loved how it still kept her teenage spirit, not just the business side of Eilish’s career. Being such a successful artist at just 17, and with added media presence, it’s hard for teenagers in the music industry to have a normal teenage life. 

This documentary successfully shows how Eilish deals with added media presence. Whether she deals with it in an unprofessional or professional way, viewers are still able to see how a teenager living in such a competitive world manages to deal with that pressure. 

The documentary highlights Eilish’s major successes and the profits from those successes. With being nominated for six Grammys and winning five out of the six, Eilish showed the world just how talented she was at an extremely young age with only a debut album under her belt.

The documentary also gives an in-depth look at what it was like for Eilish to write her very first album at just 17. It starts out in her older brother, Finneas O’Connell’s room at home, with him and Eilish beginning to record her first album. They wrote and recorded “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO” together in their own makeshift bedroom studio.

It then moves on to the behind-the-scenes of being on tour while writing her first album. The documentary shows her real-life struggles with injuries and performing. It especially highlights balancing her life as a teenager with her life amid growing fame.

Being able to see her writing process for the songs she creates, gives the audience a better understanding of how she builds and constructs her songs. Viewers are able to see just how raw and true she is in her writing and how much she values writing something that means a lot to her, not just something that everyone can relate to. 

The documentary both subtly and directly highlights the pressure put on her by the media and even her audience. It shows the value of teenagers in the music industry still being able to hold on to their teenage lives, rather than giving it up and having to grow up immediately. 

With Eilish being so passionate about her music and writing, it’s only fitting that she would have the same energy with her fans. Being a bit of a perfectionist, she always wants to give her fans the best performance. 

I loved how the documentary focused on the energy she gave to her audience and the dedication she has to her fans. Even in the case of an injury or technical difficulties, Eilish strives for perfection in her performances, giving her fans the best experience possible. 

“The World’s A Little Blurry” gives her audience and even people who don’t know much about Eilish the chance to get to know who she really is. Stepping into her life on tour is the perfect chance to understand her writing processes for her songs and what it’s like for a teenager under the pressures of the music industry.
