Janelle Monae: I Didn’t Like the Coachella Crowd

Janelle MonaeJanelle Monae didn't like the audience at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The "Tightrope" singer joined OutKast on stage to sing with Big Boi at the event in Indio, California last month, and while critics claimed the show failed to live up to expectations but Janelle blames the crowd.

"I didn't like that Coachella audience. I'm happy I got to CounterPoint [Music Festival] in Georgia, because those were real festival-goers, in my opinion," she said.

Janelle joined Andre 3000 at the CounterPoint Music Festival to dance on stage during "Hey Ya!" last weekend and gushed about the band who have reunited onstage after a near decade-long hiatus: "That is my favorite duo, favorite rap group ever invented. They were in their time travel machine and they came back to see us, and I think we should all be grateful that they came back. The music is more fun, and lives are enriched with those two ATLiens performing. They're also great friends of mine, so it's great to see your friends do what they love doing and get the love and support they need."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Hook-ups, Parties, Rumors,

Katy Perry at this year's CoachellaKaty Perry and Diplo appeared to be "more than friends" at Coachella this weekend.

The "Roar" hitmaker - who recently split from John Mayer after 18 months of dating - has been pals with the DJ for a long time, but onlookers at the first weekend of the Californian music festival said they looked closer than ever at the Jeremy Scott and Adidas Party on Saturday.

"Diplo was hanging out with Katy pretty much the whole night," a source said.

Another source added to RadarOnline.com, "They've been friends forever. It definitely looked like more than than that! At one point he even had his arms around her."

The 29-year-old singer reportedly had one female fan thrown out of the party - which she hadn't been invited to - after spending too long with Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz. "Katy had the girl thrown out! She was yelling and kind of upset about it. The girl didn't have a wristband and was a total sloppy party crasher, but still, it was kind of surprising," the source added.

She tweeted in a post which has since been removed: "I'm confused, as I did not see you once this entire weekend. No clue how these stories get invented."

Insiders told the New York Post newspaper that Kelly was furious when she and her friends were asked to move from a VIP table at the Neon Carnival to make way for Paris and her pals. However, the source said Paris didn't know who was sitting at the table and it was actually event organizers who had asked her to move.

OutKast Set to Reunite at Coachella

OutKastOutKast is set to reunite at Coachella 2014.

Producer Rico Wade has confirmed Andre 3000 and Big Boi will be gracing the stage at this year's festival after a seven-year hiatus. Rico told music website Stereogum that he wants his cousin, rapper Future, to join the pair at their reunion in California in April.

"As we bide our time in the lobby, he [Rico] affably spills the beans about unreleased Andre 3000 solo songs from a decade ago and his hopes to score Future a cameo during OutKast's reunion sets at Coachella. Eventually he pulls out his iPhone and plays me a Future/Andre collaboration he produced called 'Benz Bitch' that's earmarked for Honest [Future's next LP]. It's yet another side of Future and one rarely heard: brainy, libidinous space-age funk mined from Stankonia's dankest caverns, an homage to his Dungeon Family roots," the article reads.

The Harry Potter actress and her latest love - believed to be American student Will Adamovicz - have reportedly been dating since meeting in Oxford six months ago where they are both studying and weren't shy about showing their affection for each other.

The couple kissed and cuddled while watching bands including the Arctic Monkeys perform at the festival in California. A dressed down Emma - who turned 22 yesterday - sported jeans, a leopard print scarf and a feathered gilet with sunglasses as a hairband.

Last year, Emma complained men are intimidated by her fame and never ask her out: "It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me. I find it hard to believe I can be intimidating."

According to sources close to Kate Hudson, Ryder Robinson’s hair isn’t the only thing that has seen change recently in that household. It’s now being reported that his mother underwent breast augmentation surgery late last month.

Although A-Rod’s ex has yet to respond to the comments, she didn’t do much to end the speculation when she wore a tank top to the Coachella festival over the weekend. While she she doesn’t have anything quite as obvious up front as say Heidi Montag, the difference between the two pictures above is still noticeable.

So what do you think? Do you believe Hudson had the plastic surgery…or could she simply have been helped by some cutlets?
