Unless you’re in that isolated group of people who live on that island over in India and killed that missionary guy last month, then you know that Beyonce gave birth to twins, Rumi and Sir, last year.
Given the whole having twin babies thing, Beyonce kind of chilled out on performing for a bit, but then, in April, she returned to the stage at Coachella…and it was legendary.
Beyonce’s performance was so over the top that people officially refer to Coachella this year as Beychella.
There were costume changes! There was a marching band! Destiny’s Child reunited! And Beyonce was, well, you know, Beyonce.
Beyonce made history being the first black woman to ever headline the festival (and only one of a handful of women to ever headline), and she embraced her blackness on stage with Egyptian queen and historically black college costumes.
Jay-Z joined her on stage, Solange joined her on stage, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams (not the actress, though that would be so fun, omg) joined her on stage, and obviously Beyonce fucking owned and totally overshadowed the other acts from the weekend like Eminem and The Weeknd.
Beyonce gives birth and takes some time off and comes back and fucking burns Coachella to the goddamn ground with her fire. I give birth and take some time off and drink my weight in wine, blog about the Kardashians, and brag about my $1 sweat pants to anyone who will listen (they were such a good deal!)
Either way, I’m still trying to figure out how to use the new blog formatting thing that’s going on here and I don’t know how to post a video, but go watch a video of Bey’s Coachella performance, and you’ll quickly see why it deserves praise on this countdown.
