Billie Eilish, who has consistently pushed the boundaries of music, added another Golden Globe to her impressive collection on Sunday. The award, for the best original song, was given to Billie and Finneas for their soul-stirring contribution to the "Barbie" movie end-credits track, titled "What Was I Made For".
As Eilish stood on stage, clutching her well-deserved award, she took a touching trip down memory lane. “It was exactly a year ago, almost, that we were shown the movie, and I was very, very miserable and depressed at the time,” she shared with the audience, providing a glimpse into the emotional backdrop of her creative process. Billie went on to reveal the transformative power of songwriting during challenging times, stating, “Writing that song kind of saved me a little bit.”
Acknowledging the collaborative effort behind her success, Eilish expressed gratitude to her brother, Finneas. In a heartfelt tribute during her acceptance speech, she declared, “You’re the reason I am who I am.” The dynamic duo, Billie and Finneas, have now secured their second Golden Globes win, repeating their 2022 victory for "No Time to Die," the James Bond movie theme song.
Eilish's revelation about "What Was I Made For" adds an extra layer of intimacy to the award-winning track. Initially expecting to craft a song detached from her personal experiences, she found herself surprised by the depth of emotion embedded in the lyrics.
