    Billie Eilish Gets Trolled For “Diminishing” Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Trial In Her New Song

    Billie Eilish has been making headlines for the lyrics of her new song, ‘TV‘ The American singer-songwriter achieved public attention for the first time in 2015 with her debut single ‘Ocean Eyes.’ She has never had to look back since then. Billie gained a huge fan following because of her unique voice. Her songs like ‘Everything I Wanted’, ‘My Future’, ‘6 Feet Under’, and many more, became popular. The singer has won seven Grammys, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, and a Golden Globe Award.

    But now, Billie is getting flak on social media for making a reference to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation trial in her latest unreleased song. Johnny sued his ex-wife following a 2018 op-ed about domestic abuse. After a long and hectic trial, Depp won the case.

    Billie Eilish References Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Trial In New Song


    The ‘Lovely‘ singer is a very outspoken artist. In her new unreleased song ‘TV’, Billie Eilish included references to some high-profile cases going on in United States right now. From the overturn of Roe V. Wade to the famous defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, nothing was left unsaid in the lyrics of her new song. She debuted it during her show in Manchester England on June 7. The famous musician is currently on a UK tour for her second album.

    The pop star told the crowd, “We haven’t played a new song live before it’s out since 2017 or 2018. This is one we just wrote, and we just wanted to play for you.”

    She sat on a stool next to her brother and singer Finneas, who was collaborating with her on guitar. “I’ll but on Survivor just to watch somebody suffer,” she sang in the first verse, while in the second, she added, “Did you see me on TV?/I’ll try not to starve myself/Just because you’re mad at me.” That latter verse also ends with a line that seems to nod to the Depp-Heard trial, “The internet’s gone wild watching movie stars on trial/While they’re overturning Roe v. Wade.”

    ‘TV’ ended with Eilish repeating, “Maybe I, maybe I, maybe I’m the problem.”

    What Do Fans Think About ‘TV’? 


    Some fans criticized Eilish’s lyrics on Twitter. One user wrote, “Roe vs Wade = Women’s right to choose what happens to her body. Great! Depp vs Heard = Men’s right to get justice after being accused of domestic violence. Great! We both are important for equality. Both need to be fought for. Both should not be dismissed or diminished.”

    Another asked, “I mean it’s movie stars but someone was abused, are they less of humans cuz they are known??”


    A third wrote, “Good bc amber whines about women’s rights being set back and roe v wade is ACTUALLY what can set women’s rights back.” Someone asked, “What even is a Billie Eilish? Is it from the old Latin for ‘talentless one’?” Another added, “So if we favor Roe vs. Wade we should ignore Johnny Depp? How about Billie Eilish?”
