From “Duh!” to “D’oh!”: Billie Eilish starring in new ‘Simpsons’ short


Billie Eilish is the latest musician to head to Springfield.

The “bad guy” artist is set to star in upcoming Simpsons short titled “When Billie Met Lisa,” premiering on Disney+ next Friday, April 22.

Eilish revealed the news in an Instagram Story featuring the cartoon, Simpsons-ized version of herself singing next to the character Lisa Simpson, who’s playing her signature saxophone. According to a press release, Eilish’s brother and collaborator FINNEAS will also guest on the short.

“In ‘When Billie Met Lisa,’ Lisa Simpson is discovered by chart-topping artists Billie Eilish and FINNEAS while searching for a quiet place to practice her saxophone,” the release teases. “Billie invites Lisa to her studio for a special jam session she’ll never forget.”

Eilish joins a long list of musical artists who’ve appeared on The Simpsons, including Green Day, Weezer, The White Stripes, Aerosmith, Metallica and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy‘s band name is a Simpsons reference.
