The goth teen queen of the charts' directorial debut is on brand. Billie directs and stars in the latest When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? visual, for anti-drug ballad "Xanny." She's 'fitted in an unusually preppy, Eileen Fisher-esque sweater set (I've been informed, she's actually wearing LA luxury brand The Elder Statesmen). Her typically neon dirty-green dye-job and acrylic nails are respectively normie shades of auburn and nude for the occasion. More expectedly, the clip appears to be set in a mental institution. As Billie starts singing, disembodied hands reach into the frame to stamp out cigarettes on her neatly made-up face, leaving her freckled with burns.
"I have never done drugs, I've never got high, I've never smoked anything in my life. I don't give a fuck, I never have. It's just not interesting to me. I have other shit to do," Eilish told The Guardian in March, continuing, "I don't want my friends to die any more."
The video ends with Billie walking off-screen as the room fills with noxious secondhand smoke. The concept plays off the song's lyrics. "I'm in their second hand smoke/ Still just drinking canned coke," she sings, later adding: "Please don't try to kiss me on the sidewalk/ On your cigarette break/ I can't afford to love someone/ Who isn't dying by mistake in Silver Lake."
