Back in two years, an upcoming episode of David Letterman’s Netflix show, My next guest needs no introductionwill watch the host race go-karts with Billie Eilish.
Netflix released a clip of Eilish’s episode in which both she and Letterman receive instructions on proper go-kart manners. At 75, Letterman satirized his concern about not wanting “something to happen,” asking why the pair couldn’t play mini golf. “Because I’m good at it,” Eilish replied.
Race staff warned Letterman that Eilish “hit a few people” during the final race, before warning the “Happier Than Ever” singer to “take it easy”.
See the trailer below.
The fourth season of My next guest needs no introduction will air on Netflix on May 20. For six episodes, Letterman will sit with various big-name celebrities, among them Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Durant, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Will Smith, and Cardi B .
A program statement provided by Netflix (via Rolling Stone) recommends that Smith’s episode be “filmed before March 2022,” the month the actor famously slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Meanwhile, Eilish is among a number of female artists who have signed a letter protesting the US Supreme Court’s recent overturning of Roe V. Wade, the abortion rights advocate.
She, along with Halsey, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion and more than 150 other artists, signed a letter denouncing the Court’s leaked draft, which was seen as overturning the bill.
On May 13, the autographs appeared in a full-page advertisement in the New York Times. “The Supreme Court is planning to overturn the Roe v. Wade case, stripping the constitutional right to abortion,” the ad reads. “Our power to plan our future and take control of our bodies depends on our ability to access sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion.
“We are Artists. Creator. Storyteller. We are the new generation entering our power. Now we are being robbed of our power. WE WON’T BACK – AND WE WON’T BACK. ”
