Th entire nation simultaneously combusted with excitement after Beyonce announced that she is pregnant with twins. But the question on fans’ minds, with regard to her due date, is: “What about Coachella?”

I myself, who will be attending the first weekend of the major music festival, went through a series of scenarios about how Beyonce will follow through with her headlined performance. Maybe she will already have had the twins. Maybe she will just sit and do a Mariah Carey-esque set. And worst case scenario, she might just cancel.

According to TMZ, however, everything is still “up in the air.” Per the news outlet, the Queen Bey didn’t tell organizers that she was pregnant when she signed on to perform during one of the biggest music festivals of the year.

But a source close to Bey’s camp also tells the news outlet that the 35-year-old has every intention on performing unless she starts to have problems with her pregnancy. But let’s break this down.

When the pop star was pregnant with her now 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, she was placed on bed rest for a portion of the pregnancy. Now, Bey is carrying two tiny humans, which is potential for having a high-risk pregnancy.

We can also compare size. The singer shared this image on her website of her belly over the course of her nine-month pregnancy with Blue. Based on the photo the Houston native shared on Wednesday, we’d say she’s probably around the five or six month area. But given there’s two of them, it could even be earlier.

This also means by the time Coachella hits, the singer will be full-term.

The singer’s camp has yet to confirm Bey’s plans, but my fingers are crossed.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
