"Security, why aren’t you paying attention? Like, for real. One job, please."
Billie Eilish stopped her performance at The Governors Ball to call out security for not paying attention to an incident in the crowd.
On Friday (Sep 24), Billie performed at The Governors Ball music festival in New York City. During her set, the singer paused her rendition of 'everything i wanted' to blast the event's security team. "Security, why aren’t you paying attention? Like, for real," she said, pointing at the crowd. "One job, please."
She then started singing a few lines of her hit track, before asking the crowd: "Everybody good? Are you ok?" The crowd then broke into a huge cheer.
It's not known what exactly was going down in the crowd, but a viral TikTok revealed that some of her fans calling for a medic. A source told Insider that they had seen three festival-goers vomiting. However, the issue was apparently nothing too serious or called for a medical emergency.
