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.

Is Hollywood Trying To Make Sterling K. Brown The New Denzel Washington?

Sir Sidney Poitier was a force to be reckoned with in the 60’s and 70’s. Denzel Washington came onto the scene in the late 80’s and instantly stole the hearts of women around the world. And we can’t forget about the Blair Underwoods, Morris Chestnuts and the Shemar Moores of the 90’s.

But while many of these men are still around knocking roles out of the ballpark, we can’t help but notice the push for one major newcomer: Sterling K. Brown.

Although having been in the business for some time, it was Brown’s portrayal of Christopher Darden in FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson that really stole the attention of audiences around the nation.

And if that wasn’t enough, Brown became one of the most idolized characters on NBC’s This Is Us, playing a successful Black man in a successful Black marriage, navigating his way though his relationships with siblings.

Now after picking up two Emmy Awards, there seems to be a big push in the media to make Brown the new universal “it” man. Sure he is the ultimate trifecta — ear to ear smile, impeccable acting chops and a banging body.

But there’s a very direct narrative being told. Is Sterling on his way to becoming Hollywood’s new beef cake? Is Hollywood setting the star up to have the same level of celebrity and placement in this bizarre hierarchy as the beloved Denzel?

On Monday, Brown even appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show for the first time somehow ended up with his shirt off.

Sure the popular daytime series had a “reason” behind having the actor ride a tractor without his shirt on … but this is clearly another way of reminding the world that the sex appeal is on point.

Needless to say, nobody will replace the many men who have led the way for stars before them. But there’s no doubt the industry is holding it’s arms wide open for Brown to come running in for the largest embrace of a lifetime.
