The choice for this year fell on “God Is A Woman” crooner, Ariana Grande and the choice of choosing her as headliner made her the youngest person to ever headline the Coachella festival.
Grande delighted fans during her performance Sunday night by enlisting a live orchestra, reuniting (most of) *NSYNC, dueting with Nicki Minaj, and paying tribute to her late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.
Kokolevel Blog gathered that the Grammy award-winning Grande raked in ($8 million) for her two headline slots at Coachella festival. While she is totally deserving of the fee, what has got folks talking is the fact that the amount is reportedly twice the amount Beyonce got for her gig.
Beyoncé came in last year and did her thing and kind of set the bar, basically Coachella becomes a competition, which is ridiculous. And artists who are strong should just come in and do their own thing and just be who they are. And that’s pretty much what Ariana has done. There’s not like there’s a bunch of gags. She’s being Ariana and singing and doing her thing.”
Beyonce was paid approximately ($4 million) for her 2018, two-hour “Homecoming” show that sparked a Netflix documentary and a live album of the same name where she performed dozens of her hit songs.
