Billie Eilish is an incredibly successful young woman - but not to everyone, it seems! At this year's Grammy Awards, the man placed next to her was utterly bewildered by the teenager superstar.
But apparently, since the event, the tides of turned - and now he's loving Eilish (just like the rest of the world).
Aged just eighteen, Billie Eilish has taken the music industry by storm.

She's known for being something of a quirky character...Billie was home-schooled and she didn't really interact with kids her own age apart from her siblings until she started to make waves in the music scene, which has given her something of a unique outlook on the world.
It also gives her music quite a different sound...

Her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, ranked at number 1 on the charts.
But that wasn't even the first time that we saw her climbing the charts...
Her most recent single Everything I Wanted has been a huge success...
But, it's safe to say, Billie is as famous for her image as she is for her music...

She is known for rocking some pretty out-there looks...
Or what about this full green ensemble?
And Billie doesn't just experiment with fashion...
She donned silver hair for some time...

But more recently, she has been rocking something very eye-popping...
But it turns out that there's a reason behind Billie's quirky look...
via: Getty ImagesHer choices in fashion - which strongly consist of baggy, oversized clothes - are picked to protect herself from her global audience body-shaming her and judging her on her natural appearance.
Speaking in an interview last year, Billie explained these choices..."That’s why I wear baggy clothes," she said, "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat a**,’ ‘she’s got a fat a**.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know."
And we honestly don't blame Billie for having this attitude...

It's terribly sad that the singer has to put up with this treatment...

But it seems there are some older gents Billie has no fear of.As a hilarious (and surprisingly wholesome) encounter has proven this week.
Because in spite of being one of the most awarded artists of the year ...It seems there are still some people for whom Billie Eilish has completely passed them by.
This year's Grammy Awards were a huge night for Eilish.But an unsuspecting audience member got rather close to the superstar.
This is Terry George, from Leeds, UK.
And he certainly made the most of the night.
Because George ended up next to none other than Billie Eilish.he said.
But to make it even funnier?
"The amount of young people who have been messaging me and saying 'I can't believe you've touched Billie Eilish, you've met her, you've been next to her,' they're absolutely in awe of me."
Eagle-eyed fans can see George throughout the ceremony.
