|Beyonce's Coachella Replacement|
Everyone was thrilled for Queen Bey when she announced on February 1st that she was pregnant with TWINS! However, just as all of the fanfare and well wishes died down, fans who'd purchased tickets for this year's Coachella which Beyoncé was scheduled to headline started to get a bit concerned.
For a hot second, it looked like Mama Bey was going to still be able to pull off her set in April in the desert, but then she showed up at the Grammy's looking perfect and stunning but super prego, and people pretty much assumed it was a wrap.

Sure enough, on February 23rd, Beyonce's Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice released the following statement:
"Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyonce has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding."

2018 is cute and all, but what about this year?! Bey fans who'd already purchased Coachella tickets were obviously annoyed especially because no refunds are being issued, and there was no replacement set up.
However, it looks like Coachella has finally announced the artist who will be stepping in while Bey is nurturing her babies.

This year's SuperBowl headliner, Lady Gaga wants fans to come party in the desert with her. According to Billboard, Gaga will be headlining both weekends, April 15 & 22 at Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif.

It was important for the festival producers that a female artist was hired to replace Beyonce, so they reached out to Rihanna and Adele (Adele is not about to headline nobody's festival!) as well, but ultimately settled on Gaga. She will be the first woman to headline since Bjork in 2007. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar will also be headlining.
So y'all going or nah?
