Billie Eilish seeks restraining order against fan

Billie Eilish has been granted a temporary restraining order against a 24-year-old man who trespassed on her parents’ property multiple times.

A Los Angeles judge ordered Prenell Rousseau to stay 200 yards from Billie and her family members after Eilish filed papers for civil harassment protection on Monday.

As TMZ report, Rosseau turned up at Eilish’s residence a total of seven times last week. According to the report, he first appeared at the musicians house last Monday, ringing the doorbell and inquiring as to whether Eilish lived there. Billie’s father told him that she didn’t, but he returned to the house later in the evening where he exhibited “erratic behaviour”.

“While we waited for security, Mr. Rousseau remained on our porch, sat down and began to read a book, while also continuing to engage in a periodic monologue,” The court documents read .”My father repeatedly asked him to leave, but he refused…”

Rosseau was reportedly taken into custody twice that week, t law enforcement are “trying to keep non-violent offenders out of jail due to the spread of COVID-19.”

The next hearing is scheduled at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse on 1 June.

Eilish is staying at her family home during the coronavirus lockdown, after being forced to cancel her arena tour in the early weeks of the pandemic.

Billie Eilish ‘loves’ J Hus and Not3s & reveals her favourite songs by them

Billie Eilish has spoken of her love for J Hus and Not3s, revealing that she was introduced to their music by her father.

The singer was speaking on her Apple Music show me & dad radio, where she updated her current playlist with J Hus’ ‘Did You See’ (which Eilish described as one of her “favourite songs”) and Not3s’ ‘Addison Lee (Peng Ting Called Madison)’.

“My dad has introduced me to some of my favourite songs ever,” Eilish said during the show. “I really wanted to show the world that a lot of my taste comes from stuff my dad has shown me over the years.

“I love J Hus,” she continued. “He was, like, the first of the UK rappers that I was introduced to, thanks to my dad.” The singer also expressed her admiration for J Hus’ producer JAE5.

Speaking about Not3s‘ ‘Addison Lee’, Billie said: “This was my first introduction to Not3s; Not3s with a three, the homie.

“Dad didn’t know what an Addison Lee was. Dad didn’t even realise it was a car. Dad said, ‘Peng ting, cold medicine, cold medicine.’ I love Not3s! He’s a sweetheart, too.”

Billie’s dad then added: “For those of you who don’t know, ‘peng ting’ is a hot number, a hot girl.”

Billie Eilish says the only reason she began wearing baggy clothes was because ‘I hated my body’

Billie Eilish says the only reason she began wearing baggy clothes was because ‘I hated my body’

Billie Eilish revealed that physical insecurities led her to adopt her signature baggy wardrobe in a Dazed interview published on Thursday.

When asked about her decision to wear loose-fitting clothes from the beginning of her career, the 18-year-old explained, “The only reason I did it was ‘cos I hated my body.

Often referred to as a “rule-breaker” for diverging from the aesthetics of young female musicians before her, Eilish denied making a contrived effort to dress differently; rather, the singer said she simply didn’t identify with her predecessors’ images.

I’d be like, ‘What rules are there?‘” she said, continuing, “I didn’t consciously go, ‘I’m not gonna do that, I’m gonna do this.’ I (just) didn’t think of myself as being in the realm of those people. I was never comparing myself to them.”

An EP, an LP, a few singles, and five Grammy Awards later, Eilish’s fashion choices have remained consistent from the start — always baggy but varying from neon green streetwear to a custom Chanel tweed suit on the red carpet.

She’s become so used to the style that she admitted to barely recognizing herself without it.

There was a point last year where I was naked and I didn’t recognize my body ‘cos I hadn’t seen it in a while,” she said, continuing, “I would see it sometimes and be like, ‘Whose body is that?'”

The singer said that her body image has since improved, although she still faces insecurities.

It’s not that I like (my body) now, I just think I’m a bit more OK with it,” she shared.

Just because Eilish has become slightly more comfortable in her own skin, the artist admitted that she still faces judgment for her appearance, despite her efforts to stand up against those trying to sexually objectify her.

When she was photographed in a white tank top in June 2019, Eilish recalled seeing comments like, “‘I don’t like her any more because as soon as she turns 18 she’s a w—-.'”

“Like, dude. I can’t win. I can-not win,” she told Dazed.

However, Eilish hasn’t stayed silent on the matter. In March, the singer called out body-shamers during an interlude at her Miami concert and played a video of herself stripping down to a bra.

Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me,” she said in the voiceover.

“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I’m a s—,” Eilish said, adding, “Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it, and judge me for it. Why?”

Billie Eilish is interviewed for Telekom Electronic Beats.
 April 8th, 2020

Billie Eilish is interviewed for Telekom Electronic Beats.

Billie Eilish has reflected on her best career decisions so far and spoken about her desire to “live in the moment”, saying that she’s currently in “the prime time of my life”.

The ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ singer was speaking to Telekom Electronic Beats for a new podcast, which was recorded recently at her LA home via video chat during the ongoing coronavirus lockdown.

During the interview, Eilish said that sticking to her “own ideas and treatments” for her videos and artwork, as well as keeping her music-making in-house with her brother Finneas, were among her best career decisions to date.

I think maybe sticking to my own ideas and treatments for like videos, all my own ideas for like artwork,” she said. “I think another one is like making music with my brother, and not a bunch of randos. There’s nothing wrong with that: it’s just, for me, I don’t think it would have ended out good.

Eilish also cited a piece of advice she once received about how saying “no” is “like the most powerful thing you can say, like no means like a million times more than yes”.

“I think my brother and I really have used that over the years and realised that it’s like, you don’t have to say yes to everything. Even if it’s going to give you way more money, it’s like you’ve got to do what you think is going to help you, or you think is right for you.”

Eilish later said in the interview that she doesn’t “want to get my hopes up” by looking too far into the future, preferring to “just live in the moment and not worry about what the future holds”.

But not so much that I like ruin my life because of it,” she added. “I’m obviously always thinking about my actions and how they’re affecting the world and people, so I’m never going just be like, ‘Oh fuck it, I don’t care about my future.’ I really care about my future, I just don’t want to get stuck in thinking about it all the time, you know.

I do think about it way too much [so], I think I’m better off just staying in the moment and being in what I’m in. Because I’m in, like, the prime time of my life right now, you know, I don’t want to be missing out.

Later this month, Eilish will take part in a live-streamed concert that’s been organised by Lady Gaga in a bid to raise money for the UN Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

Billie Eilish says she has a dark, horror-inspired aesthetic because she loves ‘being looked at’

Billie Eilish says she has a dark, horror-inspired aesthetic because she loves ‘being looked at’

You may have seen Billie Eilish cry inky black tears, or fall to the earth with tar-heavy wings. You may have seen her with syringes sticking out of her back, or a spider crawling out of her mouth.

The 18-year-old singer-songwriter has become known for these macabre aesthetics, especially in her music videos — and if they haunt or repulse you, that’s no accident.

I love bugging people out,” Eilish recently told the New York Times Magazine. “Freaking people out. I like being looked at. I like being in people’s heads. I feed off it.”

Eilish also said that dark visuals — as well as her songwriting, which deals with themes like death and dread — help her navigate her depression, which is one reason why fans connect so deeply with her music.

I want to be the voice of people,” she told the magazine.

Eilish has been open about living with depression, and has written songs that confront her own suicidal ideation.

She also has the neurological condition synesthesia, which causes one sensory experience to trigger another, so she approaches music more visually than the average person.

“I think visually first with everything I do, and also I have synesthesia, so everything that I make I’m already thinking of what color it is, and what texture it is, and what day of the week it is, and what number it is, and what shape,” she said in a video for YouTube Music.

For example, Eilish sees her song “Bury a Friend” as gray, black, and brown; “Xanny” is “smooth and silky, maybe velvet, like if you could feel smoke.” She told Rolling Stone that “Bad Guy” is “yellow, but also red, and the number seven. It’s not hot, but warm, like an oven. And it smells like cookies.”

Eilish has repeatedly cited Tyler, the Creator and Childish Gambino as visual inspirations throughout her career. She has also praised the gruesome aesthetics of “American Horror Story” — although she’s not all doom and gloom. She told CBS, “Nobody that knows me thinks I’m a dark person.”

VOGUE: How Billie Eilish Is Reinventing Pop Stardom

VOGUE: How Billie Eilish Is Reinventing Pop Stardom


THE COACHELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL, not necessarily known for its adorable moments, offered up the pop equivalent of two baby pandas playing when, under the pink arena lights and to the accompaniment of the cheering and frantic uploading of a thousand teenage witnesses, Billie Eilish met her idol, Justin Bieber, for the first time last April.

The scene, touching as it was, begged consideration of its broader culture significance. Here were two pop prodigies, ages 17 and 25, at rather different points in their career arcs. The walls of Eilish’s childhood bedroom were once papered with images of Bieber, and when he enfolded her oversize denim bootleg Louis Vuitton–logoed self in a long embrace, a chasm seemed to yawn underneath their adjacent but distinct generations. Eilish, whose full-length album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, debuted at number one a week before the festival began, is not the first young singer to make hit records out of dark sonic tableaux. But the totality of her effect on the pop landscape—from her whispered anti-anthems to her bloblike anti-fashion to the sense of it’s-really-me relatability she provides to her fans—has made her immediate predecessors seem almost passé.

“This whole time I’ve been getting this one sentence,” Eilish says, “like, I’m a rule-breaker. Or I’m anti-pop, or whatever. I’m flattered that people think that, but it’s like, where, though? What rule did I break? The rule about making classic pop music and dressing like a girly girl? I never said I’m not going to do that. I just didn’t do it.”

Billie Eilish – Album Of The Year: 2019 was hers / interview – NME

Billie Eilish – Album Of The Year: 2019 was hers / interview – NME

NME.COM: Billie Eilish’s debut is NME’s Album Of The Year 2019. Duh. The LA teenager started the year as a cult hero and finished it as the most-talked about musician in recent times, brandishing a brand-new sound and all the makings of a true once-in-a-generation star. Thomas Smith speaks to the 17-year-old about her triumphant year, coping with fame and how she’s going to follow this one up.

Two years ago this month, NME met Billie Eilish for the first time, backstage at Brooklyn’s 280-capacity venue Baby’s All Right. Calm, collected and staggeringly cool, the then-15 year-old put the heebie-jeebies into us – barely a teenager, she already had wisdom beyond her age, and it felt abundantly clear we were meeting with a future superstar. As her ‘Don’t Smile At Me’ EP was gaining steam, we asked if she was ready for the fame coming her way. “The attention doesn’t scare me,” she said. “Nothing really scares me, to be honest.”

If her 2019 is anything to go by, every other artist should have the fear running through them. She’s entering the next decade comfortably perched on pop music’s highest throne, just like she promised on ‘You Should See Me In A Crown’. Good luck wrestling it from her.

Billie Eilish says she was ‘choked and grabbed’ as she walked through a crowd

Billie Eilish says she was ‘choked and grabbed’ as she walked through a crowd

Billie Eilish has told how she was choked and people grabbed her chest during a scary encounter with fans in the US.

The 17-year-old music sensation told Variety magazine that she felt as if she was being “attacked” as she tried to make her way through the crowd in Austin, Texas, where she had performed at the Austin City Limits festival.

Eilish said: “It sounds weird to say, because if you (go into a crowd) you’re gonna get that reaction, and that’s totally fine and I expect it.

“But today, jeez, somebody choked me, and they pulled my arms so hard that security was literally tugging me away.

“People were pulling my hair; somebody stole my ring; they were grabbing my chest and parts of me that, like, I don’t need people grabbing!”

The singer said although she understands that the fans were just excited to see her, it is still something that she has to live with.

Eilish has previously been open about the downside to her success, telling Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year that there was a time when she was so anxious before heading out on tour that she threw up.

She said: “I just couldn’t take the fact that I had to leave again. It felt like an endless limbo. Like there was no end in sight.”

She added: “Thinking about that literally made me throw up. I’m not a throw-upper, but I threw up twice, from the anxiety.”

Eilish released her debut studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, this year and it went to number one in several countries including the US and the UK.

Her singles include Bad Guy, Bury A Friend and Everything I Wanted.
