Billie Eilish Debuts Animated Video For 'You Should See Me In A Crown'

Billie Eilish debuted a bewitching music video for her spooky synth-pop track "You Should See Me in a Crown" on Monday via Apple Music. Eilish has now made the video available on her YouTube channel.

Eilish gets the anime treatment in the three-minute-long video, directed by legendary Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami.

Mutual fans of each other’s work, Eilish and Murakami met in Japan during her tour in 2018 and soon began working on the new anime using special motion capture technology and incorporating Billie’s popular BLOHSH character – a distorted image of a simple person-like graphic – and apparel, as well as Murakami’s iconic Flowers.

Murakami reveals: "8 months from start to finish, I sprinted throughout the production process with my animation team striving to realize Billie’s vision in an unprecedented way." Billie continues. "Murakami is an incredible visionary. It was such an honor to collaborate with him and have our brains and our worlds collide for this video."

The video climaxes with Eilish becoming a monster-like beast that tears through an unsuspecting town.

Also launched this week, a special limited edition 7" vinyl Billie Eilish x Murakami figure. Available at Billie’s online store.

Last weekend, the 17-year-old global superstar performed at the Coachella Festival. Guest Vince Staples joined her on-stage as she performed songs from her album for the very first time, ahead of her forthcoming sold out When We All Fall Asleep World Tour.

Lil Dicky Releases Star-Studded 'Earth' Video

Lil Dicky has dropped his star-studded "Earth" music video just in time for Earth Day, which is Monday.

The 31-year-old rapper and comedian, born David Burd, shared a short clip of the animated video and his thoughts on the "environmental crisis" during Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show:

"It’s literally got 30 of the biggest artists in the world on it. And every artist plays a different animal – Justin Bieber’s a baboon. Ariana Grande’s a zebra. Ed Sheeran is a koala bear. I can do that 30 times over. It’s all about saving the Earth. There’s an environmental crisis going on right now."

Lil Dicky told Ellen he learned a lot about environmental concerns while creating the song and music video:

"We have 12 years to completely change the way we do so many things on Earth or the damage is irreversible. Within our lifetime, well within our lifetime, crazy things are going to happen – floods, food shortages, bad air."

Proceeds from the song and video will be donated to environmental charities, in consultation with Leonardo DiCaprio’s charity foundation. "They’re gonna explain where they think the money is best served ‘cause they’re in this philanthropic space and I’m pretty new to the game," Dicky told Ellen, adding, "I went to his house and we played pickleball, and we spoke about the Earth. And one thing I can tell you is that guy cares so much about the planet: Like, he gets really worked up talking about it."

The video starts with the effects of climate change becoming evident in Los Angeles. Lil Dicky then encounters a group of kids who have knocked over a trash can and he tells them to pick up the garbage. After some insults, one kid starts picking up the trash and finds a magical book that he opens, starting the song.

Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine, Wiz Khalifa, Halsey, and John Legend are just some of the many, many stars featured in the song and video.

Leonardo DiCaprio is featured at the end of the video and he says, "This might be my favorite song ever."
