The 2024 Grammy Awards took place in Los Angeles on February 4. As you can imagine all of the industry’s biggest stars were in attendance. One of those stars was singer Billie Eilish, Eilish went viral after she donned a custom Barbie Jacket on the event’s red carpet pre-show.
The jacket caused a multitude of reactions from fans on Twitter. “She had a calculus class after the Grammys,” one user joked. “She’s actually allergic to serving,” another added. “Mother is mothering,” a third said.
Barbie Star Reacts to Oscar Nomination
The Barbie brand saw an uptick after the movie came out last summer. America Ferrera, one of the stars of the blockbuster, recently found out she got nominated for an Oscar.
It was the former Disney child star’s first nomination amid a career that began in 2002. It was so shocking, Ferrera says. Part of her is still in disbelief.
“There was a moment where I wasn’t sure if I had made it up,” Ferrera said to Variety. “And then my phone started blowing up. So I figured that I must have heard it right.”
The first people who blew up her phone were fellow actresses Blake Lively, Amber Tamblyn, and Alexis Bledel. The quartet co-starred in the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” It is perhaps the most notable film in Ferrera’s career.
“They FaceTimed me as a group right away,” Ferrera added. “It was hilarious and funny and emotional. These women I’ve had the honor of growing up within this industry. And being loved and cheered on and supported by them. Which we all do for each other. They’re amazing, and such a gift in my life.”
Eilish Opens up About Adjusting to Fame
Eilish has been in the industry for a long time. And she quickly rose to fame, becoming one of the biggest stars in music. But in a 2023 interview with Sirius XM radio, Eilish said she had a tough time adjusting to the fame initially.
“I think that for the last many, many years, I’ve just been honestly too afraid to go out or do anything or be seen anywhere ’cause I just didn’t know what was going to happen,” she said.
“I think I’m coming more out of my shell, and I’m letting myself try to have fun and see the kind of things that I can do.”
