Billie Eilish is a songwriter and singer born and based in the United States of America. Her career trajectory goes back in 2015 when she was merely 14 years old and had sung the song "Ocean Eyes." After that, she wrote, sang, and published a lot of songs as well as albums. Her album called "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" received the prestigious Grammy for Album of the Year, which caused her to become the youngest person to have ever won a Grammy.

At the 2024 Gold Globes Awards, she along with her brother received the award for the song "What Was I Made For?" from the universal blockbuster movie, "Barbie." While the song won the hearts of everyone and anyone who heard it, it also meant a lot to Eilish. Creating the song helped the singer through some trying times and she mentioned the same in her emotional and moving acceptance speech.



 

She began stating how she didn't, at that moment, expect that she would win the award for the best original song. She then proceeded to say how and why writing this song helped her. She revealed, "It was exactly a year ago, almost, that we were shown the movie, and I was very, very miserable and depressed at the time. And writing that song kind of saved me a little bit." She added, "And a year later here we are. It's surreal."



 

While the movie "Barbie" in itself was a phenomenal film with a lot to love and learn from, this song added to its potential by a lot. While there were two other songs as well that were nominated for the same category, namely "Dance the Night Away!" And "I'm Just Ken." In her speech, Eilish also spoke about how while she was terrified of the people in the Golden Globes awards room, she felt extremely lucky and grateful too, to be given this opportunity.

She spoke about how she'd grown to be quite resentful of how she felt back then because she loves women now - mostly because of how much they care about other women. Her contribution to the movie "Barbie" that ce
