  • Billie Eilish took the stage at the Coachella music festival on Saturday.

  • The 20-year-old star stated on stage that “he shouldn’t be the headliner of this shit.”

  • When her set ended, she apologized to the crowd for not being Beyoncé, starring in 2018.

Billie Eilish took a moment in the middle of her performance at Coachella to thank the fans for coming, as well as question her place in the lineup.

Eilish took the stage in Indio, California on Saturday as the youngest headliner in the history of the music festival.

“I shouldn’t be the headliner of this shit!” she told the crowd, which included the Insider music team. “But I’m so fucking grateful to be here and that you guys are all here. This is a dream come true. I feel crazy.”

Eilish went on to state her “three rules for the night”, which included a general ban on judging others, “don’t be an asshole” and “have fun, bitch”.

When her set wrapped up about an hour later, Eilish apologized.

“Thanks Coachella! I’m sorry I’m not Beyoncé,” she said, adding, “I love you, goodnight.”

Beyoncé famously became the first black woman to direct Coachella in 2018, delivering a career-defining performance that included grueling choreography, several clothing changes, and a Destiny’s Child reunion.

At just 20, Eilish has also written history multiple times, having become the only woman in Grammy history to win all four major categories and the first Oscar winner born in the 21st century.

He has also participated in festivals such as Governors Ball in New York City and Firefly in Delaware. She will soon become the youngest solo headliner in the history of Europe’s largest festival, Glastonbury in England.
