Billie Eilish is 'terrified' about the release of her documentary

Billie Eilish's upcoming documentary is already causing a lot of buzz. On Dec. 15, 2020, Apple TV+ released the official trailer of the film, which "promises an unfiltered and up-close-and-personal look into Eilish's life during a deeply transformative journey to the top," per Collider. The outlet also adds, "[i]t's clear from the trailer that the doc is interested in unpacking what it means to be a teenager in the modern world who is coming into their own while achieving an extraordinary amount of fame and prestige." Even though everyone is excited about the documentary, Eilish appears to be a bit anxious about having such a raw film document not just her musical talents, but also shine a light into her private teenage life.  

Back in January 2020 Eilish said she was nervous about the documentary. In an interview ahead of her performance as part of iHeartRadio's ALTer EGO concert (via NME), Eilish said, "I've seen no part of it." Adding, "I'm terrified. I'm freaked out. They've been filming since like July of 2018 ... Who has that much footage of them that they've never seen? I'm terrified."

Despite her hesitations about the personal film, the music star has been actively promoting the release of the documentary. She's posted on Twitter a few times to hype the film and encourage fans to check out when it streams on Apple TV+ Feb. 21, 2020.
