Song: “Therefore I Am”

Up-and-coming pop artist Billie Eilish released a new song called “Therefore I Am,” a tune of caution to those who try and use her name for fame or clout, as well as a dismissal of her haters. The accompanying music video is filmed on an iPhone and features Eilish prancing around an empty mall, a nod to the simplicity and fun nature of the song and artist herself. Eilish’s “Therefore I Am” is a song for those who mind their own business and disregard the hateful opinions of others, encouraging self-expression and living one’s life unapologetically. –KC

TV Show: The Mandalorian

Disney+ recently began releasing new episodes every Friday for season two of The Mandalorian. Pedro Pascal returns as the futuristic bounty hunter, Mando, as he journeys to bring The Child (otherwise known as “Baby Yoda”) back to where he belongs. Each episode displays a new director’s style, as there are multiple directors this season such as Jon Favreau, Peyton Reed, Robert Rodriguez and Carl Weathers. After a raid of the Mandalorians’ secret hideaway, Mando is now in search of other Mandalorians who may lead him to the Jedi – the only ones who know of The Child’s kind.
