Set to take the stage on Saturday and then again on April 22, Gaga is stepping in for Beyonce who was originally announced for the music festival but was forced to drop out due to doctors orders after becoming pregnant with her second and third children.
Gaga's last album - her fifth - became her least commercially successful to date after its release previous year, and spawned singles "Perfect Illusion" and "Million Reasons".
Cooper is making his directorial debut in the latest remake of the film that famously chronicles the story of an up-and-coming starlet who struggles to break into the entertainment world with guidance from an industry veteran on the way down. It's the first time in ten years that a solo woman artist has headlined Coachella.
Music and art festivals continue to draw massive audiences in the United States, and this year's Coachella promises to be the biggest one yet!
Durant shines in Golden State playoff debut in Game 1 win
Portland woke the sleeping giant, and by some serendipitous measure, they scratched and clawed to stay in the game. Kevin Durant looks like he didn't miss a game. "We competed extremely well for three quarters", Stotts said.
In addition to her new single, Lady Gaga performed a number of her biggest hits including You and I, Alejandro and Telephone. While singing another hit, "Edge of Glory", Gaga often paused as she tried to wrestle her sweatshirt off.
Recently, when an agent casually suggested that Coachella founder Paul Tollett book Kate Bush for this year's festival, he denied the offer by claiming that nobody would get it. South by Southwest came and went and now it's onto Coachella. Instead, Beyonce committed to the 2018 Coachella.
Gaga heaped praise on her fans during her set, and regularly talked to them. "If I can't find the cure / I'll, I'll fix you with my love", she belts.
Gaga replaced Beyonce as the headliner and from the looks of things, it was a smart move on Coachella's part. At one point, she was seen getting off the stage and high-fiving people at the front of the pit. "And it's so good to have someone that you're friends with that kind of knows what your life is like, and is in the public eye", she said during an interview with New York-based radio DJ Elvis Duran in September (16).
