“Please, vote people. We have 10 days til this election,” she said during the livestream. “It is is so important that you vote, especially if you’re young, because we’re the ones with futures. Unless you don’t vote and we all die. But I cannot stress enough, vote as early as you can. I voted last week.”
She continued: “We’ve gotta do something, because the world is dying and people are dying and Trump is the worst.”
At the end of the livestream, she reportedly told viewers she is longing to perform in front of a live audience: “That will happen one day. If we vote the orange man out, maybe we’ll get to see each other again. I’m literally not even joking at all.”
Eilish’s Where Do We Go? world tour kicked off in March but was cut short due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter appeared during the Democratic National Convention in August where she accused President Trump of “destroying our country and everything we care about,” adding, “we all have to vote like our lives and the world depend on it.”
