As expected, Beyonce will no longer be headlining this year’s Coachella Festival. After the announcement of her twin pregnancy, speculation grew that she would be dropped from the bill, especially after it was revealed that the festival’s promoters found out about the pregnancy the same time the public did!
Though we’ve seen her perform pregnant before (this year’s Grammys, wow!), it seems that there have been “doctor’s orders” to steer clear of the stage, considering she’d be rocking quite a large double baby bump by mid-April. In a statement, the festival said she is “following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months”. Sources say that she’s promised promoters she’d headline next year, all while they now scramble to find a replacement.
While this news may leave many ‘Chella-goers upset, the prospect of a replacement is exciting, as the festival knows it has big shoes to fill. Shoes that more than likely drew in many ticket sales…
