Beyoncé is sitting out Coachella — per doctor’s orders.
The pop diva, who announced earlier this month that she is pregnant, pulled out of her headlining gig at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, which is slated for April 14-16 and April 21-23 in Indio. She will instead headline next year.
In a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday, the singer’s Parkwood Entertainment and festival promoter Goldenvoice said Beyoncé needed to cancel the gig “following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months.”
Beyoncé’s announcement that she was expecting twins was met with online fanfare, but there were questions about what it would mean for the Grammys as well as her Coachella gig, where she would be the first female to top the bill since Björk in 2007.
