Billie Eilish launches voting initiative: ‘There’s no excuse at this point’

‘It’s so much easier to not give a fuck, but right now you gotta give a fuck’

Billie Eilish is once again asking for you to register to vote in the US presidential election. In a video shared to Instagram yesterday, the singer announced her new voting initiative, which helps fans check their registration status and sign up if they haven’t already.

“It’s basically a pledge,” Eilish explains, adding: “I wish that I didn’t have to be making this video, because I really wish I could just not give a fuck and it would be fine and I wouldn’t have to worry about any of this stuff.”

“But I think it is incredibly important that we all involve ourselves. Even if we’d rather stab ourselves in the face than talk about it, we need to talk about it.”

Last month, Billie Eilish joined her brother and longtime collaborator, Finneas, and a host of other musicians including Taylor Swift, in backing the voter registration campaign Just Vote ahead of the November election.

Frank Ocean has also encouraged fans to register to vote with his own campaign, following the first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on September 30. “Debates are on. It all feels fake. The problem’s that it’s not,” the musician wrote in an accompanying Instagram story.
