Billie Eilish Crashes During Coachella Set: ‘I Just Ate Shit!’
Billie Eilish almost took “breaking a leg” literally when she had an unfortunate knockdown while filming at Coachella on April 23.
The 20-year-old “Bad Guy” crooner fell on stage while singing his track “Getting Older.”
“I just ate shit,” she screamed after slipping, according to a Twitter video who captured the moment. “Ow! Guys, I just had a– here.
“I tripped over the f—king fire thing,” she told her audience.
Once she finished harmonizing her song, she explained what happened when she fell.
Based on a video posted by TMZthe Oscar-winning actor said, “It was pitch dark. See that square? That fucking thing? I went ‘de-de-de-de-de-de-de’ and I fell on my face.
The crowd then chanted “f—k the square” and Eilish couldn’t help but laugh and join in the rant.
Later during her set, Eilish brought in her brother Finneas O’Connell for an acoustic cover of her single “Your Power.”
Another surprise guest who made a cameo was Paramore singer Hayley Williams. Once the 33-year-old pop-rocker took the stage and sat down next to Eilish, she said, “This is my first Coachella, whoa. Thanks for sharing this with me. It’s sick!
The duo enthusiastically sang a rendition of the band’s iconic 2000s hit, “Misery Business.” After the duet performance, the “Ocean Eyes” singer was absolutely amazed.
“Oh my god,” she cried once Williams left the stage. “Absolutely, what could be cooler than that?” I’m dead serious.” The “Ain’t It Fun” musician then joined Eilish again to perform “Happier Than Ever.”
Other pop stars who took to the stage for the second and final weekend of Coachella included Carly Rae Jepsen, Harry Styles and Lizzo.
Eilish made history at this year’s music festival held in Indio, California as the youngest artist to headline the festivities. During her first performance during the first weekend of Coachella, she took a minute to dedication to 2018 headliner Beyoncé.
“Thank you Coachella! I’m sorry I’m not Beyoncé,” the songwriter said last weekend.
She also joked that she “shouldn’t be the headliner of this shit”, adding that she was “so grateful” to have the opportunity to perform at the iconic festival.
“It’s such a dream come true,” she said. “I feel crazy.”
