Billie Eilish Shakes (Not Stirs) Up The Bond Universe, Headed For Oscars 2021

Eilish. Billie Eilish.

Billie Eilish already has a bunch of records to her name – she’s the first artist born after 2000 to have a number one album, and the youngest artist to ever score four Grammy nominations. On top of that, at 18 she’s now the youngest artist to ever perform a Bond song.

The newest Bond film, No Time To Die, comes out in April, and singing the Bond song is a huge deal. The honour has previously gone to people like Sir Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Duran Duran and Madonna. 

The most recent two Bond themes, Skyfall by Adele and Writing’s On The Wall by Sam Smith both won the Oscar for Best Original Song in their respective years. The 2020 Oscar nominations were only announced yesterday, but I’m already skipping over all that woman-and-POC-snubbing mess and looking ahead to the 2021 awards. If anyone can give James Bond the Best Original Song trifecta, it’s Billie Eilish.

We don’t know a lot about the song so far, just that she wrote it with her big brother Finneas.

“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock,” Billie said in a statement.

There had been some speculation floating around about who was going to sing the theme for No Time To Die, with the most popular theory being Beyonce. To be fair, Beyonce posing with a martini was just asking for rumours.

Billie Eilish has big shoes to fill following on from Adele, Sam Smith, and all the other performers who’ve sung Bond songs in the past. If anyone can pull it off though, I’m sure it’s her. Oscars 2021, here we come.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
