Billie Eilish seeks comfort from her parents

One thing that fans learn about Billie Eilish in Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry doc is that she sleeps with her parents because she's "scared of monsters." 

During a 2019 interview with Rolling Stone, Eilish first revealed her fear of monsters, telling the magazine that she "still jumps the last few feet into bed in case there's a monster underneath waiting to grab her." That fear apparently grew as she became more and more famous. "I actually had to stop watching horror movies, because everything started flipping me out. I saw creatures outside my windows. I had sleep paralysis. I'm done with the fake s**t — real life is way too scary," she told the magazine. 

Circling back to the trailer, fans get to witness some typical teenage moments, like when Eilish does a little happy dance or when she receives her driver's license, later getting her dream car, a matte black Dodge Challenger. Plus, in an adorable moment, we get a glimpse of toddler Billie Eilish. The singer, who became the youngest ever to record a James Bond title track, per Forbes, also addressed a packed audience during a performance, telling them, "You guys need to be OK because y'all are the reason I'm OK, OK?" With moments like these, this is definitely the type of reflective documentary that her fans will love.
