The ‘Bad Guy’ hitmaker, who headlined the music extravaganza in California in April, reveals that she persuaded one of her backing dancers to dress up as her.
AceShowbiz –Billie Eilish used a “body double” so she could explore Coachella undetected. The “Ocean Eyes” singer, who headlined the music extravaganza in California in April, persuaded one of her backing dancers to dress up as her in order to be able to go and explore the rest of what the festival had to offer.
She told Apple Music, “I had a body double, one of my dancers.” Billie, who opted for a low-key black outfit and was able to successfully mingle with the crowd, went on to say, “We got a black wig and we put buns in it and we gave her a mask and sunglasses. Everybody thought it was me. I put on a big black coat and a traffic vest, hood, and glasses.”
The 20-year-old singer will headline Glastonbury in the U.K. this weekend. She admitted she feels “underserving” of her slot topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage along with Sir Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.
“It’s a serious once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be asked to go to and to do,” the “Happier Ever After” hitmaker added. “And I’m constantly feeling like I’m undeserving of everything, and I think that’s a good thing. I would say that that’s a good thing for the most part.”
“But first of all, it makes you doubt everybody because you’re like, ‘Why would you choose me?’ But with that being said, that’s why I’m even more excited about it and stoked to be the youngest headliner ever,” she said.
Making her debut at the festival when she performed on the Other Stage in 2019, Billie shared that she is particularly “honored and really excited” to be a female headliner because they don’t tend to be the norm. She said, “I’m a woman and that’s really cool. And it makes me excited for the future. And unfortunately, there’s not a lot of female headliners constantly so I feel really honoured and really excited.”
