Best Celebrity Coachella Styles Over the Years

This Coachella lineup is nothing short of golden.

After months of speculation, organizers of California’s annual music-and-arts festival appear to have secured their headliners for two unforgettable weekends.

According to multiple reportsHarry Styles, Billie Eilish, Kanye “Ye” West and Swedish House Mafia will all be part of the festival scheduled for the weekends of April 15 and April 22. 

E! News has reached out to event organizers for comment and has not heard back.

The star-studded festival has seen its lineup change in the past two years as the coronavirus pandemic forced the event to be postponed several times. The 2020 festival was originally supposed to feature Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean serving as headliners. 

Following the death of 10 attendees at his Astroworld Festival in Houston on Nov. 5, Travis has not been asked back to the rescheduled event. As for Frank Ocean, he plans to return to Coachella in 2023 when his schedule allows.

“Right now, it’s the Wild West,” Coachella co-founder Paul Tollett told the Los Angeles Times in August 2021. “I’m just trying to be as fair as I can to artists and to the fans to make sure that eventually they get to see everyone that we talked about.”

ASAP Bari is finding himself in the media after a few comments he made to his Instagram are raising a few eyebrows from his supporters, being that the 30-year-old was spotted attending Paris Fashion Week alongside Pharell Williams and Kanye West, Gunna, and Julia Fox at the start of this week.

“Y’all females better watch out from These low key gay n*ggas…Y’all better stop going through n*gga texts and start looking at they pornhub Lol…F*cking girls and guys was never cool,” he wrote on his story.

“I love gay ppl by the way I hate low key gay n*ggas who deal with females but on the low date guys,” ASAP Bari continued. “Stay True to urself and others.”

While many supporters of the influencer seemed to agree with his words, others were upset about his homophobic comments, sparking outrage on social media.

For someone who hates gay dudes he sure does talk about them a lot

Travis Scott Fans Start Petition to Have Rapper Perform at Coachella 2023

Travis Scott fans unite.

Since the tragedy that took place at the Astro World festival, Travis Scott has been in a bad spot in the public eye as many feel the rapper should be held accountable for the ten lives that were lost at his Houston festival.

Back in November, Travis Scott would hold a music festival with over 50,000 attendees. The pressure of so many people packed together in a tight space caused a drastic tragedy that would leave 10 attendees dead and hundreds injured. Following the festival, Scott offered to help pay for funeral costs for some of the victims of the tragedy but his offerings were turned down.

As the news of the tragedy got larger in the media, Scott began to go silent while many festivals began to remove the performer from their lineup including Coachella.

Travis Scott really wanted to perform for his fans at the upcoming Coachella festival this year, and even reportedly offered to perform for free before being denied all around.

It seems as though Travis Scott fans are trying to make their voices heard following a petition recently started for the rapper to perform at Coachella in 2023. The petition reportedly received over 70,000 signatures.

“After Coachella unfairly removed Travis Scott for Harry Styles, they need to do the right thing and rebook him immediately. Coachella switched Travis and Frank for Harry Styles and Billie Eilish? What kind of message does that send?” the petition reads.

It seems unlikely that Scott will be able to redeem himself anytime soon, however it’s surprising to see the rapper receive support from fans at this time.

Do you think Scott should be allowed to perform on big stages again? Share your thoughts with us on social media.

D.A.R.E. Criticizes ‘Euphoria’ For Glamorizing Its Substance Abuse Depictions

The 1980’s founded education program, D.A.R.E. is speaking out against the gritty drama, Euphoria.

In a statement to TMZ, D.A.R.E. criticized the show saying it chooses to “misguidedly glorify and erroneously depict high school student drug use, addiction, anonymous sex, violence, and other destructive behaviors.”

“It is unfortunate that HBO, social media, television program reviewers, and paid advertising have chosen to refer to the show as ‘groundbreaking,’ rather than recognizing the potential negative consequences on school-age children who today face unparalleled risks and mental health challenges.”

The series is currently airing its second season. Zendaya, 25, plays the lead role and made history at the 2020 Emmys as the youngest person to win lead actress in a drama series.

The showrunners have previously defended their approach stating that the depiction on the gritty drama based around high school drug use is “honest.” Rue, Zendaya’s character came close to overdosing during an episode this season, all shown in graphic detail.

According to the CDC, fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent now ranks No. 1 on the list of biggest killers of 18-to-45 year-olds in the United States, and by a wide margin.

However, they aren’t just criticizing the show, they instead want to help HBO make a change. D.A.R.E. offered their team’s assistance, which includes members from its high school-aged Youth Advocacy Board, to present their concerns directly.

If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse and needs help, call SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357), it’s confidential, free, and available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.

So far, there’s no response about the offer from HBO.
