Billie Eilish Wins Golden Globe Award

On Sunday night (1.07,) Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, took home the trophy for Best Original Song at the 2024 Golden Globes for ‘What Was I Made For?,’ the somber single she and her sibling wrote for ‘Barbie.’

Having already sold 50,000,000 records throughout her young career, the now 22-year old singer/songwriter admitted that before sitting down to pen the Greta Gerwig-directed movie single, she was struggling to “create” anything. 

Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ Eilish said “It’s crazy, so crazy. When they announce it and they say your name and they say ‘This is Billie’s second nomination and second win’, I’m like ‘Whoa!’ Your stomach just flips, and like it’s crazy. I just was not feeling like I could create anymore and that wasn’t a problem in my life but it was a feeling of ‘What the hell?’ I’d come all this way, what if I couldn’t even do it anymore? But that movie was so inspiring and we had just written something that also had inspired us. Then we saw this movie and it was so…it just shot inspiration into us.”

Despite winning Best Original Song award in 2022 for ‘No Time to Die ‘ from the James Bond film of the same name, Billie “forgets” that music can be used as a healing mechanism until she begins to find comfort in someone else’s work, saying “Isn’t it funny how music is [healing?] I sometimes forget and then I’m like just feeling any kind of feeling and I’m like ‘Man, I feel that way about your music!’ Isn’t that crazy? It’s crazy, it’s so cool. I’m stoked!”
