Philip Anschutz owns the huge entertainment company AEG (Anschutz Entertainment Group), which owns Goldenvoice, which operates Coachella. Philip Anschutz is very rich, and last year some of us learned that one of the things he likes to do with his money is throw it at anti-LGBTQ groups, anti-abortion groups, and climate change deniers. The Fader did some digging, and have found out that Philip donated more money to anti-LGBTQ politicans.
I hope you cleaned up in your office Coachella line-up pool. Whoever had their money on The Death Of Rock and Roll (the concept, not the band) is buying lunch all week! As anticipated, the headliners for the three day event are The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Eminem. For the first time ever, no Rock and Roll acts are headlining. Sorry Bono, I guess all those girly rockers just aren’t butch enough to make the cut.
Beyoncé’s big Coachella gig is a little less than five months away, and obviously she’s the only headliner the Beyhive cares about. But unless Coachella was planning on dragging out their hologram machine and projecting a dazzling array of digital Beyoncés onto the stage, they will need a few more headliners. According to Consequence of Sound, they’ve got them. Beyoncé will be reportedly headlining with Eminem and The Weeknd.
Last Summer’s Conclave Of Insufferability (aka Coachella) was momentarily derailed when Beyoncé had to pull out because she was 900 months pregnant with twins. The Beyhive hipsters had to take Lady Gaga as a consolation prize with the promise that Yoncé would be back to perform at the 2018 festival. Well, it looks like she won’t be preggo this time around, so the show will go on! But don’t expect any Destiny’s Child reunion stunts to go down (that’s for Super Bowls only). Continue reading
After lying to us all with a fake stadium free-fall at the Super Bowl and busting out a Grammys stage dive that was about as hardcore as a trust fall at a company retreat, Lady Gaga will most likely headline night two of the annual Gathering of the Hipster Douches in Indio, CA in April. Lady Gaga is replacing Beyonce who is too knocked up to perform. I don’t have a Bachelor’s Degree in stan wars, so I have no idea if the Beyhive and the Little Monsters are cool with each other, but if they’re not, then they better suck it up. Because the Beyhive has passes to Coachella and the Little Monsters would probably suck dick, felch, toss a salad, do ass-to-mouth and much more to get those passes.
Lance Bass and his husband (seen above at Coachella in 2014) don’t have to permanently retire their Coachella-going fanny packs, jorts and denim pedal pushers just yet, because Philip Anschutz, whose company AEG owns Hipsterpalooza, says that he no longer donates to anti-LGBTQ organizations. Yesterday, I wrote about how The Washington Post named Philip Anschutz an “Enemy of Equality” back in July. They put together a graph of all the richies who have donated to anti-LGBTQ groups, like Alliance Defending Freedom and Focus on the Family. But Anschutz spit at The Washington Post’s graph in a statement. He said that his foundation did donate to certain groups without his knowledge and when he found about it, he immediately put a stop to it.
