“It’s Exactly The Way I Feel.” Billie Eilish Sits Down With Zane Lowe In Revealing “Barbie” Interview
“What Was I Made For” Reveals The Real Side Of Billie
Zane Lowe is hands-down the best interviewer in the music industry. And when he gets together with Billie Eilish, the walls come down and they go to that place of honesty that gives massive insight into their lives.
The number one thing that he does is break down the walls between celebrity performer and the human being inside. Artists from U2 to Metallica to Eilish, he gets performers to bare their souls.
As Greta Gerwig’s (Lady Bird, Little Women, etc) Barbie movie tries to save the industry, during the first week of a writers and actors strike and after Covid has almost broken the back of physical movie theatres, Eilish has provided a moving, gut-level ballad. This interview with Lowe goes deep behind the scenes with Finneas, creating this insanely personal hit. It’s a must watch:
Barbie comes out in theatres on July 21st- starring Ryan Gosling, Margot Robbie and Will Ferrell. Robbie had bought the rights to the film with Warner Brothers and invited Gerwig to create something that “had to be totally bananas” as she told The Guardian.
