Grammy-winning goddess Billie Eilish is going viral on TikTok after her recent performance at New York's Governor's Ball Music Festival. Here's why the star's time on stage has left the online world divided...
It's safe to say that Billie is one of the biggest musical icons of this generation. With hits such as Bad Guy, which earned her 7 Grammys, and the original song No Time To Die, featured in the upcoming Bond movie, she's secured her reign at the top of the music charts. But her recent endeavor has been met with lots of criticism.
So what happened? During Billie's Governer's Ball set, audience members were reportedly experiencing medical issues and being escorted out of the venue. One fan claimed to have seen three attendees vomiting. But concert-goers weren't the only ones who caught all the action. In leaked videos, Billie was seen calling out Security during her performance: "Security! Why aren't you paying attention? Like, for real? One job, please," she said. While it's unclear what exact situation she was referring to, a viral TikTok filmed during Billie's performance could be shedding some light on the matter.

The short clip shows a few crowd members shouting for a medic while Billie smiles and laughs on a big screen, capturing the moment. The TikToker speculated that Billie thought she was being cheered on by fans and wrote in the video's caption, "Not Billie thinking we were cheering for her when we actually were calling for a medic. Love her tho." The TikTok post itself has received its fair share of criticism, with commenters wondering how on earth Billie could have heard the attendees calling for medics. Others criticized the TikToker for filming while someone needed medical attention.
Despite the altercation, Billie posted a clip to Instagram of her performance, calling it one of her "all-time favorites." Safe to say, the 2021 Governor's Ball was a night to remember. (Though we hope the concert-goers in question are now safe and healthy!)
