A Billie Eilish fan was left disappointed this week when he learned that the singer had donated a jacket he gave her during a meet and greet to charity.
Fortunately, he wasn’t down about it for long.
Michigan-based Donnie Gloede learned that the Bad Guy hitmaker had parted ways with the brightly-coloured coat he gifted her when Twitter user @arrrrrleth took to social media to share that their relative had bought it in a shop on the West Coast.
“So I was in LA, thrift shopping with my cousin and we decided to check out this new thrift shop instead of going to the same ones we always go to,” they explained. “My cousin found a jacket and decided to buy it. Inside of it was a note.”

They then shared a photo of the sweet hand-written note, which read: “Stay warm, Billie! [Love] Donnie,” and signed off with Gloede’s Twitter and Instagram handle.
“I found the guys Instagram and there’s a pic of him giving the jacket to Billie,” Arleth continued. “He gave.. this jacket… TO BILLIE EILISH.”
Gloede responded to the tweet, saying: “O that’s me!!! @billieeilish I’m sad to see the jacket never kept you warm.”
Feeling bad, Arleth tagged Eilish and begged her to give Gloede concert tickets to “make it up to him” before reassuring him that the jacket is keeping its new owner warm instead.
Later, Gloede took to Instagram to share a news report on “Jacket Gate” and confirm that he has no ill-feeling towards the musician.
“I need you all to know that I’m not pressed and I love you @billieeilish,” he wrote. “Imagine how massive her closets would have to be if she kept every single thing every fan gave her!”
Listen to “everything i wanted”, out now: http://smarturl.it/everythingiwanted
Billie Eilish has announced that she’s releasing new single ‘Everything I Wanted’ later this week and now the musician has shared the new artwork to accompany the track.
It comes after the young pop star teased last week that she was releasing new music. In an Instagram story shared on November 6, she told her fans that a new Vanity Fair piece about her wouldn’t be out for a few weeks, but as a “compromise” she’d be releasing a new song next week.
Taking to Twitter last week (November 10), the ‘bad guy’ singer shared the name of the new single and that fans can expect it on Wednesday, November 13, at 4pm Pacific Time.
Titled ‘everything I wanted’, the new song comes after Eilish released her debut solo album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ earlier this year.
See her tweet announcing the new song below together with the single’s new artwork:
“We’re deep into the creative process on new material for sure,” he told Zane Lowe. “She’s in a really good place.”
Billie Eilish is currently on top of the world, dominating the charts as one of the hottest artists in the industry. In addition to being one of the most popular young artists around, Eilish is known as one of the most unique, regularly wearing loose-fitting clothing and making it a point not to over-sexualize her image.
One element that undoubtedly contributes to Eilish’s success is the devotion and love of her fans. Keep reading to learn why Billie Eilish inspires such fierce fan devotion and why her fanbase is the best in the industry.
How did Billie Eilish become famous?
Born in 2001, Eilish was raised by parents who both worked in the entertainment industry. She got involved in music at an early age, singing in a church choir before she was ten years old and writing songs by age eleven. Her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, was creating music with his band and encouraged his sister to continue writing songs and pursuing music as a career.
In 2016, Eilish released the single “Ocean Eyes,” which put her on the map and created a media firestorm. No one could get enough of Eilish and of her unique, intriguing voice. She proved that she was far from a one-hit-wonder with her next song, “Bad Guy.” Critics described Eilish as ethereal and otherworldly, with her incredible concert performances drawing in even more fans.
Billie Eilish’s fans support her unconditionally
There’s no doubt that Eilish is very different from the typical pop superstar working today. Eilish is an outspoken vegan and has admitted to suffering from both Tourettes Syndrome and depression. Eilish first revealed her Tourettes diagnosis on her Instagram after a video of her symptoms surfaced online.
Eilish’s fans were concerned about her, and the singer opened up, acknowledging that she has lived with it since she was a child. After the revelation, Eilish’s fans reached out in support, with Eilish later admitting in an interview that she feels “at home” with the diagnosis after many of her fans told her that they also suffered from Tourettes.
Eilish’s fans always seem to have her best interests at heart. This was revealed recently when Eilish performed at Austin City Limits and lost her ring when she reached into the crowd to interact with fans. Eilish believed that she had lost the piece of jewelry forever, however, one of the concertgoers found the ring and apparently turned it over to security. Reportedly, both the security team and the woman who found the ring worked together to ensure that Eilish got her ring back.
Eilish’s fans have even supported her through injuries, encouraging her to rest and relax instead of performing when it was evident that she was in pain.
Why do Billie Eilish’s fans love her so much?
While Eilish’s fans love her for her originality, her pseudo-goth vibe, and her catchy songs, it is possible that the real reason Eilish connects with fans on a whole other level is that she’s truly invested in them. Reportedly, Eilish wants to do more than just take pictures with fans: She wants to have real conversations with them, to “know what they had for breakfast,” and what kind of day they might have had.
Eilish is only seventeen, with a very long career ahead of her and, at the rate at which she’s going, there’s no sign that Eilish is going away anytime soon. This teen sensation has proven that she has what it takes to forge a lasting career in a very difficult industry — and she’s doing it all with the love and support of her fans.
Billie Eilish just shared a new exclusive collection of apparel and accessories with Urban Outfitters, and it comes complete with sleazecore accessories like ski masks and bucket hats adorned with the singer-songwriter’s name and logo. Fans of Eilish — as well as people who just love being cozy — will find an assortment of oversized tees and sweatshirts that are perfect for layering in the cold weather. Unlike previous Eilish apparel drops, this one skews a bit more minimalist; all-over graffiti patterns are limited to a single coordinating tee-and-shorts set, and only a single tee features Eilish’s likeness.
The style of clothing falls right in line with the type of apparel Eilish is most known for wearing: baggy and comfy. Back in May, Eilish explained why she prefers this style over more form-fitting clothes, stating in a video for Calvin Klein, “I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean that’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she’s got a flat ass, she’s got a fat ass.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”
Check out the entire Billie Eilish collection, below, and stock up on all the coziest slime green and beige essentials to get you through the winter.
Billie Eilish accidentally got a mullet and we can’t get over it. The Bad Guy singer admitted she never meant to get a mullet and is waiting for it to grow out.
A TMZ reporter asked Billie if the mullet was here to stay and we got to applaud him for fearlessly questioning her new look. ‘That’s so mean,’ she said. ‘No, listen, you know what happened? ‘Somebody dyed my hair and they burnt half of it off. ‘ Imagine being that hair stylist and accidentally burning off Billie Eilish’s hair? Yikes.
She continued: ‘That s*** is not on purpose though. I’m growing that s*** out.’ Billie debuted her questionable look at the LACMA ART+ Film gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Her black hair was long while her usual green highlights were cut short.
Meanwhile, Billie’s music has been having a huge impact on Green Day’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, who claims her music has ‘saved lives’.
The two icons teamed up for an interview where they spoke about their success and how to handle fame. And it turns out the 47-year-old is a huge fan of the Bury A Friend songstress, and dished up some advice in Rolling Stone magazine after being in the industry for more than three decades.
When beating herself up for sometimes having ‘bad shows,’ the punk rocker reassured his newfound friend, saying: ‘For me, it’s learning what gratitude means to you. ‘My life could have definitely gone in a different direction. I’m just glad people show up. Now, if I have an off show, I kind of don’t care.”
Next year, Billie Eilish will embark on her Where Do We Go? tour, her most sustainable yet, and she’s teaming up with Global Citizen to give her environmentally conscious fans a chance to see her perform.
Using the Global Citizen Rewards platform, Billie’s Avocados can learn more about environmental issues like plastic pollution and climate change. By taking action to help tackle these challenges and eradicate extreme poverty, Global Citizens will earn tickets to her shows.
