Beyoncé Cancels Coachella 2017 Performance Due to Pregnancy

Beyoncé will officially no longer be performing at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2017 per her doctor's orders, The Associated Press reports. Instead, the entertainer (who is currently pregnant with twins) is now set to headline next year's festival. Her label Parkwood Entertainment and Coachella organizers Goldenvoice issued a statement to AP:

"Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyonce has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. However, Goldenvoice and Parkwood are pleased to confirm that she will be a headliner at the 2018 festival. Thank you for your understanding."

As of press time, there is no confirmation of who will replace Beyoncé as the third headliner. Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are the other top-tier performers at Coachella.
