American pop icon Billie Eilish is getting her own documentary, which is set to stream next year. After being announced in 2019, the long-awaited film is finally on the horizon — and we’ve got all the details for how fans can tune in.

18-year-old Billie Eilish is nothing less than a musical sensation, having captured fans’ hearts and ears with her unique music alongside brother and producer Finneas O’Connell.

The “Bad Guy” singer garnered massive media attention after being conscripted to perform the theme song for the latest James Bond film, “No Time to Die,” and even sang the Beatles’ “Yesterday” at the 2019 Oscars.

Age is no barrier for success, it would seem, and music isn’t the only element in Eilish’s arsenal; in 2019, it was announced that Apple would be filming a documentary centering on the singer, titled “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry.”

A year later, Apple have announced a tentative release date for the film, finally giving fans a concrete time to look forward to getting an inside scoop on their favorite singer’s private life.

When is the documentary coming out?

Apple’s documentary about Eilish is set to release in February 2021 — nearly two years after being initially teased in 2019.

Although an exact date wasn’t released, viewers have about five months’ wait ahead of them to watch the long-awaited film.

Where can fans watch the documentary?

“The World’s a Little Blurry” will be streamed via Apple TV+, meaning that fans who hope to get in on the action will need a subscription to the service to watch it.

However, for those not willing to shill out for a monthly subscription service, reports also state that the film will be shown in theaters — so depending on certain restrictions by region, viewers may be able to bypass the Apple TV+ subscription for a one-time charge, instead.

Directed by R.J. Cutler and produced by Darkroom, Interscope Films, This Machine and Lighthouse Management & Media, Apple’s upcoming documentary promises an exciting look inside the life of one of pop’s biggest rising stars.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
