Whelp, we saw this coming.
Earlier this month Beyonce announced that she was pregnant with twins, but instantly, folks attending this year’s Coachella Music Festival instantly wondered: Will she still headline the musical extravaganza?
The question has finally been answered and the answer is … NO!
It was confirmed on Thursday afternoon that “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.”
The statement, put out by Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice, did however, unveil one piece of good news. “Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”
I know what you are probably thinking … you are going this April and now you have to spend money next year for the festival just to see her? If it makes you feel any better, I too fall into the same boat. The good news is, at least you know there would be no backing out in 2018; unless of course she plans on having another set of twins.
It’s still unclear who (if anybody) will take Yonce’s spot.
By the way, this would have been the pregnant singer’s first time performing at the festival. She also, according to the Associated Press, would have been the first female act to headline Coachella since Bjork in 2007.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
