Billie Eilish new music video

Billie Eilish has shown her support for Greta Thunberg’s environmental mission with her new All The Good Girls Go To Hell music video. 

Singer Billie Eilish is one of the most exciting creatives out there right now, using her platform to support issues that need talking about.

Recently, Eilish called out slut-shaming. It came after sparking a conversation about body-shaming in Calvin Klein’s I Speak My Truth campaign. Revealing the relatable reason about her ‘big, baggy and bold’ sartorial choices, she said in the video: “Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know? 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.” 

Now, Eilish has made her passion for the environment very clear in her new music video for All The Good Girls Go To Hell. And, it’s been made in support of Greta Thunberg

Directed by Rich Lee, the video opens with Eilish who has multiple needles in her back. She then sprouts a pair of wings, drops from the sky and quickly lands in an oil spill. With her white wings turned black from the oil, Eilish struggles to free herself and is forced to walk around while fires burn on the ground around her. 

There’s no happy ending to the video., highlighting the urgency of our planet’s climate crisis.

Eilish accompanied the release of the video on Wednesday (4 September) with a statement on her Instagram Stories. 

“Right now there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention,” Eilish wrote on Instagram. “Our earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, icecaps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning. On September 23rd, the UN will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit to discuss how to tackle these issues. The clock is ticking. On Friday September 20th and Friday September 27th you can make your voice be heard. Take it to the streets. #climatestrike“

Greta Thunberg recently arrived in New York after sailing across the Atlantic Ocean for two weeks. The activist is there to attend the UN climate summit later this month. 

“Our war on nature must end,” Thunberg told reporters shortly after arriving at her destination. “I want to thank everyone who is involved in this climate fight, because this is a fight across borders, across continents.”

When asked about Trump, she continued: “My message for him is listen to the science and he obviously doesn’t do that.”
