(AllHipHop Rumors) Well, I have some good news on this Good Friday. For the last few days or weeks, there were rumors than Ariana Grande was paid twice as Beyonce to play her epic performance at Coachella. As you know, the Coachella festival is a massive musical/cultural event that takes place in in Riverside County, California every year. It covers two weekends! I have never been, but it seems like a crazy event where people just go crazy, enjoy life, music and more. Welp, Beyonce performed at the 2018 Coachella and did both weekends, KILLING IT! I have to salute her, because the show was so epic they called it Beychella. She was also the first Black woman to headline Coachella.
So, when it was stated that Beyonce got HALF of what Ariana Grande got to perform at the festival, people didn't even bother to fact-check it. I don't believe we covered it, frankly. But, it was momentarily accepted as fact. That fact has since been debunked. Grande and Beyoncé were both paid $4 million per weekend - exactly the same. That's a nice take, if I don;'t say so myself!
Anyway, this is the second weekend of Coachella and, I have no clue what is going on there. What I do know is last weekend, YG paid homage to the late, great Nipsey Hussle and this weekend Beyonce dropped a documentary called "Homecoming" that makes me feel like I need to get to this event before I die.
I can't lie. It was dope seeing Jay-Z come out.
