Billie Eilish Fever Is on Full Display in New Video for "wish you were gay"

Fans take center stage in the live clip

April 30, 2019

From North America to Europe – Billie Eilish has fans in the palm of her hand. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has even said the 17-year-old was keeping rock alive, and there’s more evidence of that in her new video for “wish you were gay.”

“Her lyrics really relate to our generation more than any artist I’ve heard for a very long time,” says a British fan as part of a montage to start the live clip. The video cuts back and forth between fans singing along to the song in concert and fans meeting Eilish backstage. The common theme is that they all appear to be having a religious experience.  And this is just the beginning.
