For those who didn't grow up in the early 2000s, it can be difficult to spot the trends which came from that decade. For example, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The series, which starred Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly, garnered billions in dollars at the box office, and kickstarted both Bloom's and Knightly's careers.

Come to think of it, I was madly in love with Bloom for years upon seeing the films. I've since grown out of that phase. But one individual who seemed oblivious to who Bloom was, is none other than singer/songwriter, Billie Eilish.


This month, the multi-Grammy winner's documentary, Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry, was released on Apple TV+ and examines the singer's rise to fame. The documentary by R.J. Cutler has fans completely in awe of Eilish, not only for her immense talent, but also her oblivion to who Bloom was before fiancé Katy Perry introduced the two at Coachella.

It was Eilish's brother FINNEAS, who informed his sister of Bloom's resume, after looking him up on Google.

"That guy?" Billie asked. "That was him? No way! Bring him back! I wanna meet him again. He kissed me on the cheek!"

Not everyone was a Will Turner fan - which was Bloom's character in Pirates of the Caribbean. It's definitely a choice one must make on their own. In addition to Eilish meeting Bloom, she was also introduced to Justine Bieber, whom she declared as her "first love" in the documentary.

"It's moments like tonight where I'm reminded what I mean to people," Bieber wrote in a text message to Eilish, which she reads at the end of the doc. "You love for me touched my heart. You are so special. Not for what you can do, but for who you are. Remember that."

In the interview, Sawyer is seen berating Spears about her public breakup from Justin Timberlake, belittling the popstar to tears.

Bieber sent the message to Eilish after she won five Grammys in 2020.

In addition to being able to meet her inspirations, the doc follows Eilish as she navigates life at just 17, while simultaneously writing and recording her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Some critics have compared the documentary to the Britney Spears Hulu doc, Framing Britney Spears, partially because it depicts a teenage girl's rise to fame within the music industry, as well as its challenges.

Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry is now available to steam on Apple TV+.

I'm pleading for pop culture to stop playing OCD for laughs

Perhaps the time has come to re-evaluate how we portray OCD in films and TV series.

Melvin Udall in As Good as it Gets

I've had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) since I was a child and I'm now in my early 40s. For all of this time, I have felt like I should be apologizing for it.

It's like this invisible phantom that engulfs one in fear and doubt and brings dark clouds to a shiny day at the park. The sense of guilt has always followed me due to the disorder being a part of my everyday life. For whenever I would try to talk about it to a friend or a relative, to explain a certain lifestyle choice, to touch upon its debilitating nature, I've often been looked at funny in return.
