Bill Kaulitz as Billy goes on solo paths with the art project “LDBM”. INTERVIEW spoke to the singer about life in Los Angeles, Berghain hangovers and one of the most painful feelings of all: heartbreak.

INTERVIEW: you suffer more easily as an artist?

BILLY: The Message of the whole EP is that I suffer in heartbreak, just like any other. I’m doing the same thing just like everyone else, I was deceived, my heart was broken.

INTERVIEW: How does the heartbreak feel that you sing about?

BILLY: I think lovesickness has something like dying. I had the feeling that I will not survive this. I had given so much that I then was completely empty. I did not know how to get up in the morning. There was just nothing.

Bill Kaulitz’ strange solo comeback as Billy

Bill Kaulitz is now called Billy. He has his hair dyed blonde, facial piercings, wearing black pants with red sneakers. Compared to before, he looks normal. But he gives interviews.

He came from Los Angeles to Berlin to present his new solo project, the mini-album “I’m not okay” with five songs, a photo album and a short film. The first single “Love, do not break me” has been published, an electro-ballad, the accompanying video sits Bill Kaulitz scantily dressed next to a woman in bed.

In the Seven Star Gallery the plaster peeling off the walls on purpose, in the two small rooms and around the DJ booth in the basement 200 guests pushing. Everywhere are beautiful people and drink gin and tonic, which is available now. Lena Meyer-Landrut, Jimi Blue Ochsenknecht, the rapper McFitti.

On the walls hang portraits of Billy, he poses in black and white, bare-chested and his mouth slightly open.


Bill Kaulitz and his solo project BILLY

While perceived 50 fans pressed their noses flat against the window, I was crowded with photographers and pressmen in a small room, waiting as Billy positioned himself for a few photographs. Everyone wanted to have a picture with him. With who? Of course, with Bill Kaulitz, who now calls himself “BILLY“.
To kick off as a solo artist, he has acquired a new image and a new name. Tokio Hotel‘s frontman, but he wants more: to reach a whole new audience. He did not want a conventional release for his first solo project – he staged a “multi-media hybrid” Art project which he called after his first song “Love Do not Break Me”. This art project includes not only the music, black and white short films, a 128-page photo book and large format framed prints, which were presented last night to invited guests and press people in the Berlin SevenStarGallery.


Tokio Hotel’s Billy Kaulitz Talks His New EP & Why Aliens Exist

When you were in middle school, you probably remember adding the lyrics to Tokio Hotel’s “Monsoon” to your AIM profile. What you probably didn’t know is that Tokio Hotel had been making music since 2001, and their American hits like “Monsoon” were originally written in German.

Today, Tokio Hotel is alive and well, with a lead singer whose hair is changing faster than the band’s busy schedule. While in between albums, Billy Kaulitz has decided to give his fans, or “aliens,” a treat with a solo project that will be released on May 20th. The first single, “Love Don’t Break Me,” was released this past week, and it’s safe to say that the rest of the EP is going to be just as emotional and sexy. We talked to Billy about his new solo project, being a hopeless romantic, and secret Coachella parties.

You’ve said that your solo project, BILLY, is about experimenting with your own sound. Why was this a perfect time to do a solo album for you?

I am not sure if this is the “perfect” time. I’ve been working on this for quite a while and I never had a real plan for actually putting it out. I was touring the entire year last year and we are kind of in between albums with the band, so I had time to really concentrate on this, I guess. Things just came together and it felt right to do it. I feel ready for it. The energy is right.
