Billie Eilish Draws ‘bury a friend’ 🎨 Black Canvas | MTV Push


– Billie Eilish, MTV,
today I’m gonna draw. (“bury a friend” by Billie Eilish) (laughs) Today I’m gonna draw my
song “bury a friend”. (“bury a friend” by Billie Eilish) “bury a friend” is written
from the perspective of a monster under your bed. Basically, the idea is I’m the monster and I’m singing to the person in the bed. So, I’m the monster under your bed. This creature that I’m drawing, it’s like super inspired by the Babadook. The Babadook is like my favorite movie and the “bury a friend”
video is based completely on the Babadook and so is
the album cover, actually. I think of myself as, like, the Babadook. Like, I almost relate to it. (laughs) Which is weird, like, I feel like the Babadook is me and so,
and kind of the idea is because since this song
is from the perspective of the monster, and I’m the monster, it’s not like I’m the monster
because I’m your enemy. It’s like I feel like
it can be out of love or it can be out of hate or it can be out of terror
or fear or whatever. If you love someone too much, it can be more dangerous
for you than to hate someone or to have an issue with someone. But also, another thing is like, I’m my own monster under my bed. I’m my worst enemy. I’m the reason people hate me and I’m the reason people love me and I’m the reason I hate me and
I’m the reason I love me. And I think everyone is. Everyone is their own
worst enemy all the time. (“bury a friend” by Billie Eilish) The way that I created it was after making “bury a friend”, I got out my notebook where
I draw everything I feel and everything I think and I draw a lot, so it’s a lot of this kind of thing. Which, hopefully, people will see one day, or maybe hopefully not. (laughs) And so, I got on my bed
and I just listened to “bury a friend” and I just thought about “bury a friend” and I just was like let me draw this song. And so I drew a bunch of these guys. And then I had a dream about them. The whole album is based
off of night terrors and dreams and good dreams and bad dreams. Dreams have always kind
of been a thing with me, like dreams really (bleep) things up, or I’ll have dreams and then
they happen the next day. And this whole album is just like, I want it to feel like sleep paralysis. Like in the video, the video
repeats over and over again because it’s almost like
having a recurring nightmare. Since then, I’ve drawn
every single song I’ve made. (“bury a friend” by Billie Eilish)
