Fans Think Billie Eilish Called Out Jimmy Kimmel in a Public Speech

Fans believe that Billie Eilish called out Jimmy Kimmel for making her “look stupid” on television.

While on stage at Variety‘s Hitmakers Event, for which she received an award, Billie told the crowd, “Thank you so much, Variety — thank you for not making me look stupid like everybody else wants to do on TV — love that.”

Billie‘s interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! went viral when she was tested on her knowledge of the 1980s. Billie is only 17 years old, and admitted she didn’t know who Van Halen was during her appearance on the show. This caused some backlash.

Fans at the event have deduced that she must have been referencing Jimmy in her speech.

If you don’t know, Billie recently had to address another controversy – this time involving Lady Gaga.

Taylor wrote the new song “Beautiful Ghosts” for the movie version of Cats with Andrew for Francesca‘s character Victoria.

“I think probably one of the most surreal days of my life so far was when Taylor asked to meet me. She had written the lyrics for Andrew [Lloyd Webber]‘s music and she called me into a room and basically gave me a private concert of the song for the first time,” Francesca Hayward told Kimmel. “Just me, her and a pianist and Tom Hooper, the director. She sang the whole song just to me in a room. It was surreal.”

Francesca also talked about being from Kenya and England, being a Principal Dancer for the Royal Ballet, and having a cat behavioral coach for the film.

Sam Rockwell Tells 'Kimmel' He Had To Get Security Checked at the Airport Because of His Oscar!

Sam Rockwell paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (December 5) and told a hilarious story about going through airport security with his Oscar award.

The 51-year-old actor won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and had to travel with his Oscar to go back home.

“I checked it on the carry-on and actually I got stopped for a random check. A very young woman, maybe 20, took it out of the bag and swabbed it,” Sam recalled. “She took it out of bag and she had the swab with no expression. I was like, ‘really? that’s it. That’s all I get?’ I don’t think she knew what it was. It makes me think well we really do live in a Hollywood bubble, some people don’t know about them.”

Sam also talked about dancing with Madonna at her Oscars after party, working with Clint Eastwood on his new movie Richard Jewell, and his real friendship with Christopher Walken.
