This saga is over! For now.
Since Beyoncé announced her pregnancy last Wednesday, the Will She, Won’t She? speculation about whether she will still headline Coachella or not has been more tense than the Ross and Rachel narrative on Friends.
But as Jezebel points out this morning, Pregyoncé is still on for both weekends of the desert festival and she has two special guests confirmed to make appearances:
“Sources involved in pulling off Coachella tell [TMZ] Bey has no intention of canceling, and has already booked 2 other big artists to join her onstage. She’s made housing arrangements out in the desert for her guest stars, and we’re told both knew well in advance that Beyonce’s preggo.
One of the performers is from the Roc Nation roster. The other is from a different label, but still close to Bey. Our sources say the guests have blocked off their schedules for the gig and there’s no going back now.”
Solange? Rihanna? Jack White? The Weeknd? Drake will have completed The Boy Meets World Tour a few weeks beforehand, so could it be him? What if it’s Grimes, who is part of Roc Nation and releasing videos exclusively on Tidal now?
We could come up with silly ideas for this all day, but really the point is, it was pretty obvious that unless Beyoncé was truly medically incapacitated, she wasn’t going to back out of the festival. Remember when she sang through a fan pulling her hair non-stop through an entire song?
