Billie Eilish is receiving heaps of praise for the way she interacts with fans at her concerts.
The Grammy-winning artist, 21, is giving fans an up close and personal experience during her ongoing Happier Than Ever world tour.
One fan, who attended one of the three shows Eilish performed in Auckland, New Zealand last year, responded to a TikTok trend in which people shared the 'best thing they saw in 2022'. The adorable footage of the pop star shows her literally embracing her fans as the crowd caress her face.
We've never seen any musician get so close to crowd of fans before and it looked like Eilish enjoyed every minute of it.
The fan wrote in the video's caption: "Ok I'm done gatekeeping this."
TikTok users absolutely loved the clip and praised Eilish for being nice to her supporters.
“It’s nice the way they touch Billie they’re so gentle it’s so sweet,” one fan commented.
One person replied: “It’s all love. Great to see.”
A third gushed: “How happy she looks when she’s so close to fans,” alongside a red heart emoji.
While a fourth penned: “The way she comes close so y’all can touch her my heart.”
Another fan said Eilish probably thought the excitement from the spectators was ‘so cute’.
It's unlikely that the 'Therefore I Am' singer will be able to see the clip making the rounds herself because she recently revealed that she has deleted all her social media apps from her phone because she 'doesn't look at them'.
After rising to fame in her late teens and releasing her acclaimed first album when we go to sleep where do we go aged 17, she said she had managed to distance herself from social media despite being an ‘internet kid’.
Speaking on an upcoming episode of the Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend podcast, Eilish said deleting her social media apps had been ‘such a huge deal’ for her.
“I don’t look at it [social media] anymore. I’ve deleted it all off my phone," she shared.
Eilish appeared on the episode alongside brother Finneas and spoke about growing up as a ‘teenager on the internet’.
“I feel like I grew up in the perfect time of the internet when it wasn’t so internet-y that I didn’t have a childhood,” she said.
“I really had such a childhood, and I was doing stuff all the time.
“It was like computers and games on computers, but barely.
“And then when I became a pre-teen, there were iPhones, and then I got a little older, there was all of what has become, but being a pre-teen and a teenager on the internet, those were my people, I was one of them.”
She also admitted that seeing videos of herself on her social media feed was quite a learning curve.
“I’m a person who goes on the internet… And slowly the videos that I’m watching and the things that I see on the internet are, like, about me.
"I’m, like, ‘Eww, stinky.’ I don’t like that.”
