“The House on Mango Street” By Sandra Cisneros Will Soon Be a TV Show


It seems like a lot of books we’ve loved over the years are getting the movie or TV treatment, including Looking for Alaska, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Stargirl, and beyond. Things have been trending upward for us bookworms-at-heart who are getting to see the stories we love on screens of all sizes. Well, that trend will continue with Sandra Cisneros’s beloved novel The House on Mango Street, which is finally getting the television adaptation treatment.

Deadline broke the news earlier this week that Cisneros’s 1984 novel would be adapted into a TV series. The book will be adapted into a drama by Gaumont, the same production company behind the popular Netflix series Narcos. But, at this point, it’s unclear if The House on Mango Street adaptation will also appear on Netflix. If the show gets picked up, Cisneros will serve as an executive producer.

The House on Mango Street is a novel made up on vignettes about the residents of a particular working-class street in Chicago. The stories are narrated by a Mexican-American teenager, who helps bring the reader into this beautifully-realized world. For years, Cisneros has been reticent to allow her novel to be adapted, per Gaumont (via Deadline‘s report), but reportedly softened to the idea now that the rise and variety of streaming services is allowing numerous stories, including immigrant stories, to be told.

In a statement accompanying the announcement, Gene Stein, Gaumont’s president of U.S. Television, said, “The House on Mango Street is a timeless story that captures the struggles, dreams, and spirit of a young woman who epitomizes the experience of many young women coming of age in America today. It’s an inspiring and uplifting story that speaks to the challenges faced by so many trying to find their place in society.”

Additionally, Cisneros offered her own statement on the news: “I write because the world we live in is a house on fire, and the people we love are burning. Television has grown up in the last 20 years and now is the time to tell our stories.”

The Red Carpet Looks We Want to See Recreated at The 2020 BAFTA Awards

Straight from the archives…

Earlier today, the British Film Academy’s dress code for the 2020 BAFTAs was revealed, in which they ask red carpet guests to dress sustainably for this year’s event. The mandate encourages celebrities to wear vintage (like Jennifer Aniston did at last week’s SAG Awards), choose a designer who keeps sustainability front of mind or re-wear a piece they’ve perviously worn. Naturally, that got us thinking about previous looks from some of the stars who will be in attendance at the February 2nd event. So, we compiled a list of dresses we’d love to see this year’s BAFTA attendees (including Kate Middleton) recreate. Scroll down for 13 of our all-time favourite looks:

New England Patriots free agency 2020: Top 5 targets


For the first time since 2015, the Super Bowl didn’t include the New England Patriots. Who could Bill Belichick’s team look at during free agency?

It proved to be a much shorter 2019 season than many anticipated for the New England Patriots. A team that had reached the previous three Super Bowls finished 12-4 and hosted the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Wild Card Playoffs. A 20-13 setback meant Bill Belichick’s club would not be playing in the conference title game for the first time since 2010.

Of course, this will be an offseason unlike any other this century for this franchise. Veteran quarterback Tom Brady is a potential free agent for the first time during his storied career. The team has some other prominent players on the list as well (via Spotrac) and as of this writing, ample cap room.

Who knows what this team will look like over the next few months? Could the Patriots be very active during the free agency? And in terms of proved performers, what five players could Belichick and company pursue if and when they become available on March 18?

5. T D.J. Humphries (Arizona Cardinals)

There was certainly a difference when 2018 first-round pick Isaiah Wynn was able to play. After missing his entire rookie campaign with a torn Achilles, he took the field on nine times this past season, including the playoff match-up with the Titans. The 23rd overall pick in ’18 was a solid performer available but availability has been the question mark to date. He started the first two games this past season, went down with a toe injury but returned for the final six contests and the aforementioned wild card clash with Tennessee.

All told, New England’s offensive line disappointed this past year and the issues were numerous – perhaps the biggest being the season-long absence of quality center David Andrews. The Patriots’ ground game slumped to 18th in the NFL after running for the fifth-most yards in the league one year earlier. There would be no successful playoff run with Belichick’s team relying on power football.

Tackle D.J. Humphries has been a big disappointment for the Cardinals since they used the 24th overall pick on him in 2015. But could the young performer – who has seen action at both left and right tackle and was a 16-game starter this past season – revive his career as a swing tackle in Foxborough and be had for a bargain price?

Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend shared compromising texts with her brother, who sold them, WSJ reports


New York prosecutors have evidence suggesting that Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, shared compromising texts about her affair with Bezos to her brother, Michael Sanchez, The Wall Street Journal reports. Michael then reportedly sold those photos to the National Enquirer, which then published a story about Lauren and Bezos’ affair last January. The WSJ says its reporters have seen the texts themselves.

Bezos’ affair returned to the limelight this week when The Guardian reported that it was “highly probable” that Saudi Arabia hacked Jeff Bezos’ phone in May 2018. According to this theory, Bezos’ phone was compromised when he received a WhatsApp message with a malicious video file from the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS).

After Bezos apparently tapped on the video, an awful lot of data “were exfiltrated from Bezos’s phone within hours,” The Guardian reported, based on an account from an anonymous source. This theory was supported by a report about the hack published by security forensics firm FTI Consulting that was obtained by Vice.

That report also included an apparent screenshot of a misogynistic meme sent by MBS to Bezos in November 2018 with a picture of a woman who looks similar to Lauren Sanchez, and the report suggests that the image means MBS may have had knowledge of the affair before it was public in early 2019.

Both the Guardian’s story and FTI’s report would seem to back up the original accusations of Bezos’ security consultant Gavin De Becker, who initially published a story in The Daily Beast that not only claimed Saudi Arabia had hacked the Amazon founder’s phone, but strongly suggested there might be a link to the Enquirer’s story.

However, some security professionals felt that FTI’s report didn’t prove that Saudi Arabia hacked Bezos’ phone. It’s primarily based on coincidences, not evidence that Bezos’ data flowed back to Saudi Arabia. And although Bezos also hinted in an earlier Medium article that there is a connection between Saudi Arabia and the National Enquirer, it doesn’t appear that either Bezos or his security consultant have evidence linking anything from the apparent hack by Saudi Arabia to the National Enquirer’s story about Bezos’ affair.

Since the story first came to light, American Media, owner of the National Enquirer, has maintained that it received information about the affair from Michael Sanchez, not from Saudi Arabia, and reiterated that position in a statement published yesterday in The New York Times.

It seems likely that Michael Sanchez is the primary source for the National Enquirer’s story. It’s also possible that Saudi Arabia may have hacked Bezos’ phone, though that’s not a certainty. Both might be true. Right now, though, there isn’t hard evidence that Saudi Arabia was a source for the National Enquirer’s story about the affair.

Hell Is Under New Management in ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Chapter 22 (RECAP) – TV Insider


[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Chapter 22, “Drag Me to Hell.”]

Who knew that being the Queen of Hell would come with so much admin? From underworld political campaigning to above-ground debt collection, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) finds herself with a whole host of new responsibilities in the immensely fun “Drag Me to Hell,” written by Sabrina regular Ross Maxwell. 

As someone who still frequently prays to the TV gods to bring back Bryan Fuller’s Dead Like Me, I was always going to be on board with an episode that revolved around a teenage girl collecting souls. Honestly, I could quite happily watch a full season of Sabrina dealing with the doomed and the moral quandaries that come with condemning a person to Hell. The added wrinkle here, compared to the brilliantly acerbic George in Dead Like Me, is that Sabrina isn’t just a young woman going through all the dilemmas of adolescent life, she is also the monarch of Hades itself — that adds an extra layer of complexity to the situation. 

At first, Sabrina has no intention of carrying out the Devil’s work. “I’m not condemning anyone,” she tells a growingly frustrated Madame Satan (Michelle Gomez), who is slowly losing her grip on power. Sabrina wants to put Satan behind her and get back to regular high school life, like practicing her cheerleading routine for the upcoming Baxter High pep rally — a routine set to Run DMC’s “Tricky” (as performed by the Sabrina cast). I swear, between the insanely catchy “Straight To Hell” music video, the Fright Club rock band (this week singing “Teenage Dirtbag”), and now the Glee-like cheerleader songs, Sabrina must have a cast-performed soundtrack in the works.

However, as enjoyable as it is to see Sabrina and Roz (Jaz Sinclair) rapping, it can’t be all play and dance numbers all the time, especially when you have important work duties to fulfill. Sabrina might not like the idea of dragging souls to the underworld, but if she doesn’t, the freshly primped Prince of Hell, Caliban (Sam Corlett), is ready to swoop in and take the throne for himself. And given that Caliban’s first act as leader would be to declare war on Earth, Sabrina can’t afford to sit idly by, and so, she puts down her pom-poms and gets to work.

CAOS Roz and Sabrina

Netflix

Most high school students’ first foray into the working world is delivering newspapers or mowing the neighbor’s lawn, not sentencing a person to eternal damnation. It’s certainly not an easy task, and Sabrina rightfully struggles with the implications, particularly when her first subject is a sweet old man who sold his soul merely to become the world’s greatest chess master. That doesn’t sound deserving of Hell to Sabrina, and so she ignores protocol and allows the man to go to Heaven — the decision befittingly represented by two hearses, one black, one white. “You really are the worst,” Madame Satan tells Sabrina when she finds out what she did.

With Caliban and the other denizens of Hell in uproar, Lilith persuades them to give Sabrina one more chance to prove herself. Her next subject is one Jimmy Platt (Matty Finochio), aka “the jelly frost ice-cream guy,” and this time, Sabrina has a cunning idea. With her boyfriend, Nick (Gavin Leatherwood), still possessed by Lucifer (Luke Cook) and chained up in a dungeon, the young witch plans to take Jimmy’s soul and then immediately transfer the Dark Lord into Jimmy’s dead body. Let’s call it, killing two birds with one soul — or a “Freaky Friday” as Harvey (Ross Lynch) puts it. 

The Fright Club’s afternoon of corpse theft is hindered, however, when they find out that Jimmy is not your average, friendly ice-cream scooper. Jimmy has been extending his time on Earth by sacrificing innocent souls to the Dark Lord (i.e., killing children), and that’s what he intends to continue doing when Sabrina arrives to collect his debt. He’s already kidnapped his next sacrifice, a three-year-old girl called Lucy (Evelyn Burke), which means Sabrina can’t take his soul (or carry out her body transfer) without knowing the girl is safe first. 

There’s a nice ratcheting up of tension in this story, as Sabrina is curtailed every time it looks like she’s ahead. After Roz uses her cunning to help locate the missing girl, Sabrina teleports herself into a freezer, where Jimmy has Lucy locked up, but she’s unable get back out. Again, it’s left to Lilith to save the day. There is definitely a maternal quality to Madame Satan, and part of that came from living as Mary Wardwell. Lilith didn’t just decide to retain the Baxter High teacher’s form because she likes the face, it’s because she grew personally attached to Ms. Wardwell, and it’s telling that when she returns Lucy to her mother, she gives her name as Mary Wardwell.

In the end, Sabrina gets the job done by disguising herself as a young boy and siccing her S&M-wearing zombie bodyguard on Jimmy (I forgot to say, Sabrina has a silent work colleague), and this time, she feels no remorse about her actions. “Burn this trash,” she tells her minions in Hell. “Feel free to get creative with his suffering.” And with her first soul successfully captured, Sabrina declares that Hell is under new management and requires a serious makeover. “The reformation of Hell starts now,” she announces to Caliban and the incredulous three kings — just wait until she gets them performing choreographed dance routines!

However, there is still the problem of Nick and his possession. Lucifer is strengthening within the handsome warlock and starts to spread his influence throughout the Academy, which is awful timing for the Spellman aunts, who have just reopened the school. Zelda (Miranda Otto) struggles to gain respect from the children, who snicker and call her names behind her back. The insolence drives Zelda to breaking point, and she uncharacteristically lashes out, slapping Agatha (Adeline Rudolph) across the face. Obviously, it turns out that Zelda and the unruly kids were under the influence of the Dark Lord, who releases an intrusion of mind-controlling cockroaches from his mouth. 

When Zelda and Hilda (Lucy Davis) find out what’s going on, they realize that once again, Sabrina has been keeping secrets. “I thought the Dark Lord was bad, I thought he was dangerous,” says Zelda, “but Lilith preserve us from his demented lovesick daughter.” Of course, Sabrina defends herself, telling her Aunties that she couldn’t just leave Nick in Hell to suffer in torment. She owed it to him to try and help get Lucifer out of his body and into someone else’s. “Where do you expect to find another vessel strong enough to withstand being turned into a flesh Acheron for the Devil himself?” asks Zelda, just as Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) and Prudence (Tati Gabrielle) teleport home with an ideal body in tow.

CAOS Roz and Harvey

Netflix

Ambrose and Prudence have been in the Scottish Highlands searching for Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle). They manage to track him down at Loch Ness, which Ambrose reveals lies atop a powerful rift in the universe, one that can mess with time and space. It isn’t entirely clear what this means until we see a disheveled looking Father Blackwood, his once slicked-back hair now a shaggy afro, his usually clean-shaven face sporting an untamed beard. He also sounds more Welsh than ever. Faustus has obviously been through some stuff.

He recites an enchantment in front of the lake, and a swamp beast rises from the water holding some sort of egg. It’s not how the Loch Ness monster is usually depicted — it looks more like an 80s Doctor Who villain. Blackwood collects the egg and calls over his “sacrifices,” which are two teenage children — this was an episode of sacrificial kids. Prudence ambushes her father before he can hurt the children, and this is when things get even more Doctor Who. Blackwood says he’s been gone for 15 years, even though only a month has passed since he escaped the Academy. “The old ones are returning to reclaim the Earth,” he says, just as Lucifer did in the last episode. “And then, the eldritch terrors.” 

Faustus’ words are not just the nonsensical ramblings of a mad man, as the two teenage children reveal themselves to be Judith and Judas, the twins who were just babies when we last saw them. Something is seriously amiss here. In shock and in need of a cuppa, Ambrose & Prudence take Blackwood (and the twins) with them back to Greendale, just as Sabrina is looking for a vessel to contain the Dark Lord. There’s a neat converging of stories in this episode, and putting Blackwood and Lucifer together brings up lots of exciting possibilities for the rest of the season. 

As I said in my previous recap, I appreciate how fast-moving Sabrina is, and already we’ve seen Nick rescued from the underworld, Sabrina take over as Hell’s sovereign, and Lucifer removed from Nick’s body. Not to mention Ambrose and Prudence swiftly finding and returning Blackwood in just two episodes — I was worried that story would drag on all season. If the show can keep up this pace all season, then we’re in for a hell of a ride.

Additional Notes

  • Theo (Lachlan Watson) is often the most short-changed when it comes to side-characters, but it seems he may be getting a romance storyline this season, as we see him bonding with new kid Robin (Jonathan Whitesell).
  • So what are the “eldritch terrors” that Blackwood mentioned? Well, the word “eldritch” means something strange or otherworldly and is often associated with Lovecraftian literature. The “Eldritch Abomination” is a popular feature of horror and fantasy works, and usually takes the form of an alien-type creature that defies all sense of logic and reality. Given that Sabrina has now introduced time travel, I suspect we may see an Eldritch Abomination at some point this season.
  • “Would they have called Faustus a bitch?” Zelda complains to her sister after the students mock her. “And he was a little bitch,” she continues. “Yeah, he was a bit of a bitch wasn’t he?” Hilda agrees. I love to see the Spellmans on the same page.

Butler vs. Marquette odds, line: 2020 college basketball picks, Jan. 24 predictions from simulation on 6-2 run


The 13th-ranked Butler Bulldogs will look to continue their home success when they face the Marquette Golden Eagles in Big East Conference action at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Friday. The Bulldogs (15-4, 3-3) are 9-1 on their home court, while the Golden Eagles (14-5, 4-3) are just 2-3 on the road. The game from Indianapolis is set to start at 9 p.m. ET. 

Butler, who leads the all-time series 22-19, is 15-1 against unranked opponents. The Bulldogs are 6.5-point favorites in the latest Butler vs. Marquette odds, while the over-under for total points scored is set at 135, down two points from the opening line. You’ll want to see the college basketball predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model before laying any Marquette vs. Butler picks down.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has crushed its top-rated college basketball picks against the spread the past three years, returning $2,770 to $100 players. It also enters Week 12 of the 2019-20 season on a 6-2 run on top-rated college basketball picks. Anybody who followed it during that span has seen some handsome returns.

Now, the model has set its sights on Butler vs. Marquette. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college basketball lines and trends for Marquette vs. Butler:

  • Butler vs. Marquette spread: Butler -6.5
  • Butler vs. Marquette over-under: 135 points
  • Butler vs. Marquette money line: Marquette +241, Butler -301
  • MARQ: 1-1 against ranked opponents this season
  • BUTLER: Fifth nationally in scoring defense, allowing 58.1 points per game

Why Butler can cover

The Bulldogs have had a lot of success against the Golden Eagles at Hinkle Fieldhouse, winning six of the last seven meetings and they are 11-6 at home all-time against Marquette. Butler is looking for its fifth winning season over the past six years and is 52-35 under third-year coach LaVall Jordan. The Bulldogs are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games following an against-the-spread loss.

Junior forward Jordan Tucker and senior forward Sean McDermott have been red hot of late. McDermott, who averages 11 points and 5.7 rebounds, has scored in double digits in nine of the past 11 games, including an 18-point effort against Creighton on Jan. 4, while Tucker, who averages 9.5 points and 4.1 rebounds, has scored in double figures in three of four. He scored 17 in a 70-58 win at Providence on Jan. 10.

Why Marquette can cover

Even so, the Bulldogs aren’t a lock to cover the Butler vs. Marquette spread. That’s because Marquette has had a lot of success over the past 20 years, having won 20 or more games 13 times since 2000, and making the NCAA Tournament 12 times. The Golden Eagles are looking for a fifth straight winning season and under sixth-year coach Steve Wojciechowski they have compiled a 111-74 record with two NCAA Tournament appearances, including last season.

Offensively, the Golden Eagles are led by senior guard Markus Howard, who is averaging 28.4 points per game, along with 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists. Howard has scored 30 or more points in four of the last five games, including 42 at Georgetown on Saturday and 32 against St. John’s on Tuesday.

How to make Butler vs. Marquette picks

SportsLine’s model is leaning over on the total as the Golden Eagles get at least three points from nine different players in the simulations, while Baldwin surpasses his scoring average with another big game. It has also generated an against-the-spread pick that cashes in over 60 percent of simulations. You can only get the pick at SportsLine. 

So who wins Butler vs. Marquette? And which side of the spread can you bank on in over 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Marquette vs. Butler spread to jump on, all from the advanced model that is up more than $2,700 on its college basketball picks the last three years, and find out.

MLB rumors: Rockies, Trevor Story agree to two-year contract; Starling Marte trade rumors heating up


Almost all notable free agents have signed, and we’re gradually shifting our focus toward spring training and the approaching hoof-beats thereof. That said, rumors still lurk among us, and we’re here to keep you updated on them. Speaking of which, here’s Friday’s crop of MLB buzz. 

Rockies, Story agree to extension

Shortstop Trevor Story and the Colorado Rockies have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $27.5 million contract extension. Story’s deal will cover the final two years of arbitration eligibility, and he is now set to reach free agency at 29 years-old, after the 2021 season. You can read more about the deal here.

Marte trade talk still going

Jon Heyman reports that trade talks regarding Pirates outfielder Starling Marte are “heating up” and that the Mets and Padres are heavily involved. The Pirates, who appear to be headed for a full teardown, are surely willing to part with Marte, and he’s of interest to certain aspiring contenders. 

Marte, 31, isn’t best deployed in center any longer, but he can still be a defensive asset at an outfield corner. He still adds value on the bases, and this past season at the plate he produced right in line with career norms (120 OPS+). Marte’s under contract for $11.5 million in 2020, and his pact includes a $12.5 million club option/$1 million buyout for 2021. That’s control with some flexibility from the team standpoint, and it adds to Marte’s trade value.

As for fits, the Mets have a fairly crowded outfield situation at the moment, so they’re not particularly desperate for Marte. The Padres have already added Tommy Pham to the fold this winter, and they’ve recently been connected in trade talks to Mookie Betts of the Red Sox. Betts is the better player, but as fallback options go Marte isn’t a bad one. 

Cubs, Souza close to deal

The Cubs are close to fortifying their outfield situation by signing veteran outfielder Steven Souza, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Souza, 30, missed all of last season after tearing multiple knee ligaments late in spring training. In 2018, Souza struggled across 72 games in large measure because of a pectoral injury. In 2017, he enjoyed his last healthy and productive season, as he put up an OPS+ of 119 with 30 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 148 games. As a right-handed hitter, Souza could fit well as an occasional platoon partner for Kyle Schwarber or Jason Heyward in the outfield corners. 

Rosenthal goes on to note that Souza’s deal would be a major league contract. If finalized, it would be the Cubs’ first major league free agent signing of the offseason. 

Pence wants to keep playing

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, veteran outfielder Hunter Pence wants to play again in 2020. Following the 2018 season, it looked like Pence’s career might be over, but last season in his age-36 campaign he bounced back in a big way. In 83 games for the Rangers, Pence batted .297/.358/.552 with 18 home runs. As well, those strides came after some swing changes that gave Pence more loft and significantly higher exit velocity. That raises hopes that Pence’s gains may be sustainable, at least in the near-term. Don’t be surprised if he finds his way to at least an NRI before the offseason is over. 

Marlins chasing two former Cub relievers

According to Craig Mish, the Marlins are pursuing a pair of right-handed relievers who played for the Cubs last season: Pedro Strop and Brandon Kintzler

Strop, 34, pitched to a disappointing 4.97 ERA in 2019, but he was borderline dominant as recently as 2018. As for Kintzler, 35, he registered a 2.68 ERA in 57 innings last season with some of the strongest command-and-control numbers of his career. Given that Miami ranked 25th in bullpen ERA last season, they can use the help.

Netflix developing anime movie based on ‘The Witcher’


Netflix have confirmed that they’re currently developing a new anime film based on their fantasy epic The Witcher.

The first season of the new show, based on a series of fantasy novels and starring Henry Cavill, has been a massive success on the streaming service.

A second series of The Witcher has already been confirmed, and it seems Netflix are already working on spin-offs and additional stories in the Witcher universe: they’ve now announced that rumours of a new anime film based on the novels are true.

A tweet announcing the film, called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, reveals that it will “take us back to a new threat facing the Continent.”

The team behind The Witcher will be working on the film alongside Legend of Korra makers Studio Mir.

The Witcher arrived to huge praise upon its release last December, with one fan saying it “makes Game of Thrones look like two drunks fighting.”

There are clearly big plans for the franchise, too, with showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich telling NME that there will be countless follow-up series’ to the current first run of the show.

“I’ve been quoted saying seven and 20,” she said, “but basically, I will write this series as long as one: the source material holds out. But two: as long as audiences are interested in watching it.”

In a review of the first season of The Witcher, NME‘s Alex Flood called the show a “bloodthirsty, sex-obsessed fantasy to fill the Game Of Thrones-sized hole in your life.”

The review continues: “Fantasy setting, axe-swinging bloodbaths, mythical monsters, more nudity than a Love Island wrap party, tick-tick-tick-ta-hick. There’s a lighter, more cartoonish tone, as there would be when there’s so many exotic fantasy monsters and witchcraft flying about, and a strong comedy thread too, particularly in the form of Joey Batey’s fame-hungry minstrel Jaskier.”

Watch Billie Eilish’s new self-directed video for ‘Everything I Wanted’


Billie Eilish has shared a new, self-directed video for her latest single ‘Everything I Wanted’.

The pop star announced the arrival of the clip on her Instagram page earlier today (January 23), sharing a snippet of the video.

““everything i wanted” VIDEO OUT IN ONE HOUR EVERYWHERE 12PM PT. DIRECTED BY ME! STARRING MY BRUDDER FINNEAS😁😁” she captioned the post.

 

The video begins with the words: “Finneas is my brother and best friend. No matter what the circumstance, we have always and always will be there for each other.” It then shows Eilish and her brother and collaborator Finneas in a car driving through a city at night. The two stare straight ahead as she lip syncs to the track, Finneas only turning his head as his sister begins to drive onto a beach and towards the ocean.

In a press release, Eilish said: “My brother and I wrote this song about each other and I wanted to create a visual that emphasises that no matter what, we’ll be there for each other through everything. This is the second video I’ve directed of mine. We worked so hard, for hours and hours on end. I love it, I hope you do too.”

Meanwhile, the musician has confirmed her plans to make a new album this year. When asked if she would release a new record during an interview at iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO concert last weekend (January 18-19), Eilish responded: “This year, no, but I will be making it this year. But next few years? It’s coming. When it’s made. It’s not made yet.”

She also gave an update on her forthcoming AppleTV+ documentary, which is expected to follow the star in the wake of the release of her debut album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, in March last year.

“I’ve seen no part of it,” she said. “I’m terrified. I’m freaked out. They’ve been filming since like July of 2018 … Who has that much footage of them that they’ve never seen? I’m terrified.”

Eilish is nominated in three categories at this year’s NME Awards, including Best Album In The World, Best Song In The World and Best Solo Act In The World. The winners will be announced on February 12 at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
