The queen has officially bowed out. Beyoncé has officially announced that she will no longer be headlining Coachella 2017, per her doctor´s orders.
In a surprise Instagram post about three weeks ago, Beyoncé announced that she is pregnant with twins. Kneeling in front of an orchestra of roses with a veil over her face, she wore a berry-colored bra and silky-blue bottoms.
Her caption shocked fans, she wrote, “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.” Her sentimental tone left fans wanting to know more, as hearts were yearned to know Blue Ivy’s take on becoming a big sister at the age of five.
It was announced at the beginning of January that the megastar was set to be one of the headliners of the festival. Coachella is known for its killer fashion and its celebrity attendance, and of course, to listen to some of the biggest stars in the music industry.
But on Thursday, Feb. 23, Coachella made the following statement on Facebook: “Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.”
“However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding.”
Although she won’t make an appearance this year, fans can look forward to her grand entrance in 2018– here’s to hoping she doesn’t get pregnant with triplets!
Beyoncé still conquered the Grammy stage on Sunday, Feb. 12. The Grammy Awards were her first public appearance since announcing that she was pregnant with twins. Beyoncé performed two hit songs from her 2016 album “Lemonade,” “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.” Beyoncé’s performance was announced by her mother, Tina Knowles.
As if she wasn’t already a perfect mother, she dedicated her performance to motherhood. She had all eyes on her, wearing an extraordinary golden down with a matching headdress. Beyoncé entered the Grammy Awards nominated for nine awards, and came away with two. One for Best Music Video for “Formation,” and Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Lemonade.”
Let it be known that “Queen Bee” might be taking a break, but she will be back belting her high notes.
