Billie Eilish’s Coachella debut might’ve been plagued by a few sonic gaffes, but our Office queen wasn’t going to go down without a (very amusing) fight. No, sir! Do you even know our spooky kidult overlord?! Before bringing Vince Staples out as a surprise guest, only to discover that his microphone wasn’t working for almost the entirety of their duet, Eilish couldn’t remember some of the lyrics to her new bop “All the Good Girls Go to Hell.” She walks around. Shimmies a little. Looks at the audience. Questions her next move. “Da da da da da. What the fuck are the words, though?” she finally says. “Da da da da da.” Nailed it.
