Billie Eilish Frets About “Stupid” Trump & the End of the World
17-year-old pop star Billie Eilish may not know who Van Halen is, but she is very aware, and worried, about how the 2020 election may go, according to the Los Angeles Times. The teen turns voting age later this month, and next year will be her first presidential election, and says after watching the last election, she’s “pretty worried about ,” she added. “I think stupid Trump is probably going to get reelected, and that makes my heart break. You know, some people just love horrible people. It’s weird.” Eilish says she will use her concerts for voter registration and eco-activism booths at every show on her arena tour, to try and increase voter turnout among her young fans. The youngster also says she spends a fair amount of time thinking about the effects of climate change, and how she may be around to see it. “It feels like we’re living in a movie that you’d watch where the world is like ending. We could stop it, but we’re not going to because everybody’s too lazy,” she says.
