Fans are wondering why Billie Eilish dissed Jennifer Lopez at the VMAs. The young singer didn’t clap after J.Lo came on stage, and cameras caught her looking bored throughout J.Lo’s appearance.
During the celebrations at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Jennifer Lopez made a surprise appearance to announce the winner of the ‘Best Song of the Year’ to Olivia Rodrigo for her song driver’s license. While many audience members clapped and cheered when the singer came on stage, Billie looked bored. Now viewers are saying Billie was extremely rude.
The 19-year-old singer was caught on camera looking unimpressed when J.Lo appeared. The singer’s brother, Finneas, was seen clapping next to her. Fans everywhere are wondering if Billie Eilish has a feud brewing with the “Jenny on the Block” singer.
Fans took to Twitter to express their confusion and support for Billie’s rude reaction to J.Lo. Many fans of the young singer said that Billie did the right thing and that J.Lo has gotten too much hype in recent months. A fan named Joel Alexander said “Here it is!! Best moment of the night for sure. Glad I’m not the only one who’s sick of J Lo.” While another fan kept it simple and tweeted, “billie has taste.”
This is not the first time that Billie and Jennifer have been in the same room together. Before the drama during the MTV’s Video Music Awards, Jennifer took her daughter Emme to visit the young singer back in 2020.
Jennifer Lopez took her daughter to see the 19-year-old singer during the opening night of Billie’s Where Do We Go? Tour. After the meeting, the 52-year-old gushed about the young singer and posted this sweet comment on her Instagram. Jennifer said that “we had a real moment… It was a mind-blowing experience for me. It made me appreciate what I do more, my fans more, what Billie did for my daughter… it was like a full-circle moment. But yeah, we love Billie.” Their sweet history makes this incident even more shocking.
Some fans are saying that Billie’s diss of the singer was just out of context. The young singer did have a lot on her mind that night and could have been thinking of something else when the camera panned to her. Billie Eilish was nominated for five different awards that night, including Best Pop Video. She ended up winning two awards, Video for Good and Best Latin.
Other fans said that maybe Billie started to clap after the camera left her. The possibilities are endless, but even if the VMAs moment was just taken out of context, that didn’t stop Twitter from making fun viral videos of the apparent feud. And the memes are amazing!
