Ariana Grande Is Headlining Coachella, But...Beyoncé
According to CNN, Ariana Grande will make history when she performs at Coachella.
She is the youngest woman to perform as a headliner at the California music festival.
Grande is also only the fourth woman to headline Coachella, along with Lady Gaga, Bjork, and Beyonce in the past.
Wait...did someone say Beyoncé???
Although Grande has pipes for days, CNN reports that she still has a tough act to follow, after Beyoncé killed it in 2018.
CNN explains, "when Beyoncé took to the stage last year, it was more than just a history-making performance with the first black female headliner -- it was a cultural watershed moment."
Jon Caramanica even wrote in The New York Times.
"It was rich with history, potently political and visually grand.
By turns uproarious, rowdy, and lush.
A gobsmacking marvel of choreography and musical direction."
In addition to the Bey comparisons, Grande was also shut out of the major categories at the 2019 Grammys.
But regardless, the 25-year-old singer is happy about headlining Coachella.
She tweeted on Thursday, "Humbled and excited as all hell @coachella ...Thank u."
