Billie Eilish has taken to Instagram to celebrate Joe Biden’s US election win, declaring that she is “through the roof” with relief.
“Oh my god you guys, I wanted to say thank you so much to everybody who fucking voted. Fuck!,” she began.
She continued: “This is unbelievable, I am so happy. I am through the roof. I wanted to say thank you to everybody that changed their mind, or got out there and fucking voted, even if you voted for the first time, whatever. Don’t let anybody tell you your voice does not matter.”
“It was so close, and it’s because of you guys fucking pushing through that we won this shit! Thank you for caring about the climate, about women’s rights, about social justice, about fucking surviving right now.
“I cannot say thank you enough. I am so happy right now. I love you guys. Be safe,” she concluded.
The video comes after months of political campaigning from Eilish, who strongly encouraged her fan base to have their say in the election.
“I really couldn’t want to be involved in politics less; I’d rather be doing literally anything else than talking about this… I think that that should show you how much this actually means right now,” she said.
She continued: “There just comes a certain point where you can’t ignore it and you can’t be silent. Especially having the platform that I have, I don’t want to waste that.”
