Billie Eilish Sparks Controversy with Comments on Marathon Concerts

Billie Eilish Sparks Controversy with Comments on Marathon Concerts

Does Billie Eilish have more “Bad Blood” with Taylor Swift? Swifties are convinced Eilish shaded Swift and Beyoncé’s respective “Eras” and “Renaissance” tours by taking aim at marathon-length concerts.

The “Bad Guy” singer, 22, told her fans that “doing a three-hour show” is “literally psychotic” in a Stationhead clip that went viral Thursday.

“Nobody wants that,” Eilish said. “You guys don’t want that. I don’t want that. I don’t even want that as a fan. Even my favorite artists, I’m not trying to hear them for three hours. That’s far too long.”

Eilish’s rep did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

Swifties React to Billie Eilish’s Comments

Social media users criticized the apparent shade via X. Swift’s Eras Tour concerts are over three hours. In contrast, Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” shows were three hours long.

One user said, “millions of people seem to want that but ok.” Another added, “it’s weird saying that when all of the shows were sold out and even made into a movie that ppl bought tickets to also see so saying ‘nobody wants that’ is an actual lie.”

Eilish’s Previous Praise for Swift and Beyoncé

Others, however, pointed out Eilish’s previous comments calling Swift and Beyoncé “untouchable superstars” since she finds it “really hard to play stadiums” herself. “The fact that they can put on a show that long, and it’s filled with so many incredible moments, is really amazing,” she gushed to the Los Angeles Times in 2023.

Past Tensions with Swifties

Billie Eilish last found herself at odds with Swifties in March. She bashed “big artists” for their “wasteful packaging” when releasing many versions of albums.

While many believed she was referring to Swift in her Billboard interview, Eilish clapped back via Instagram Stories. “Okay so it would be so awesome if people would stop putting words into my mouth and actually read what I said,” she wrote at the time. “When it comes to variants, so many artists release them, including me, which I clearly state in the article.”

Eilish clarified that she wasn’t “singling anyone out” since it is an “industry-wide systemic issue.” Swift never responded to the online chatter.
