It seems Billie Eilish is not a fan of Jennifer Lopez. The 19-year-old singer maintained a blank expression while the 52-year-old J.Lo took the stage at VMAs for a presentation. On Sunday night, September 12, when Lopez appeared on the stage, the attendees went gaga and welcomed her with cheers and claps at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. But Eilish's flat expression showed no resopnse to the veteran singer's appearance.

Reports said the moment was captured by MTV cameras that showed the 19-year-old sitting still as Lopez made the appearance. The clip that has gone viral on the internet also showed the ‘Happier Than Ever’ singer not clapping for the actress. She instead chose to twiddle her fingers while her face gave no evidence of emotion. However, it’s not clear why she chose to do that.

However, several people went on to slam Eilish as a user posted, “Probably my reaction to hearing Billie whatever her name is Billie who?” Another one said, “Classless no talent teen..what would you expect?” The third one shared, “She literally clapped to Olivia and she’s not white and she clapped for doja soo goodbye.” “At 19 years old, Billie Eilish is too young to know how to show proper respect and have manners so I don't hold this rude behavior against her too much.  J Lo oughta spank this child,” the fourth added.

A tweet criticizing the ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ singer read, “She's totally overrated. Now she's using her body to sell because her fame is slowly diminishing.” Another one added: “Aww, keep crying E.12 while jlo keeps thriving lmao. And before you start spilling some hate, make sure you can AT LEAST summon the courage to put up a fucking face pic on your profile.”



 



 

Meanwhile, it has been said that Eilish was not just present at VMAs to present an award. She was also honored with five awards — including best pop song.
