Billie Eilish Met Justin Bieber At Coachella, And The Video Exudes A Weird Energy

We're not sure why we're surprised, really.

Billie Eilish and Justin Bieber meet at Coachella 2019, before dropping 'bad guy' remix

One day after playing Coachella’s penultimate Saturday night set, Billie Eilish has ticked off another bucket list item: meeting Justin Bieber, though the meeting, by where we’re standing, was incredibly odd.

The two met during Ariana Grande’s headlining set, which wrapped up the first weekend of the 3-day festival, and saw appearances from *NSYNC (minus Justin Timberlake) as well as mic-issue riddled cameos from Nicki Minaj, Diddy and Mase.

Turns out Bieber — who recently announced a semi-hiatus from making music — was in the VIP crowd, and found himself standing next to Eilish, who, as she said on The Ellen Show recently, is a massive, massive Belieber.

DeGeneres even did a classic secretly quite-mean Ellen prank and pretended she had Bieber backstage, which she did not.

But now, the two pop prodigies have met. In the video, a Louis Vuitton suit-donned Eilish stares down a face-mask-wearing Bieber for a minute before the two hug. Despite Eilish’s fans freaking out about the moment, the whole thing feels a bit weird to us? Perhaps this is merely what happens when game recognises game.

Please enjoy this odd-but-sweet moment between two of contemporary pop’s most conventionally odd oddballs.

After Coachella next weekend, Eilish flies to Australia to play regional festival Groovin The Moo, and a series of sideshows. Judging by her set yesterday, which blitzed through her “beautiful disaster” of a debut album, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, it’ll be huge.
