Best of Coachella Weekend Two: Lana, Camila, Kid Cudi Debuts

Good news and bad from Coachella, Weekend Two: our insane dreams did not come true. Which is fine. No really. Taylor Swift didn't show up as we hoped and prayed. But she did get love from her bestie, Ice Spice, “Y’all heard Taylor’s new album yet? Shout out to Taylor Swift! My good sis.”

But it still was eventful, beautiful, trippy, and for thousands of attendees a long 4/20 weekend they'll never forget.

Here's a few highlights.

Lana Del Rey brought out Camila Cabello instead of Tay

People talk (annoyingly) about not having this or that on their bingo card. Did anyone predict Camila Cabello to be a surprise special guest on anyone's Coachella set this weekend? Let alone Lana's Friday night headlining set?

Not me, that's for sure.

But the bubbly former Fifth Harmony singer was actually just what the critics were secretly asking for when they knocked Del Rey's Weekend One set for being all droopy ballads.

Fine, here's

Damon Albarn announces Blur might be dunzo

Last weekend wasn't the best for Blur. During two of their biggest songs Damon Albarn expressed dismay at the young crowd who didn't really respond to songs like "Girls & Boys" as he expected.

On Saturday, though, the mood was far more upbeat. “I love Coachella, I love you. Really," he told the audience with a huge smile.

Is this the last Blur setlist?

Leading into “Tender,” though, Albarn said he wanted to clear up what he hinted at last weekend when he scolded the less than enthusiastic audience when he said "you’re never seeing us again so you might as well f---ing sing this."

This weekend he broke the bad news: "in the spirit of clarity and truth, this is probably our last gig."

The announcement might be a more practical one than emotional choice. Blur's drummer, Dave Rowntree, just might find himself in the British Parliament soon.

Reneé Rapp seemingly forgot Coco Jones was popping up on stage

It sure looks easy from afar. Get on stage, dance around, sing your songs, wave your friends onstage, duet together, get adored by the fans, and push the wheelbarrow of money home.

But it's not like that, allegedly. Poor Reneé Rapp was in the middle of her set and was surprised to see the super talented Coco Jones approaching her from the wings, singing.

After Jones delivered the first lines, the two women hugged. "Forgot about me?" Jones said, laughing. It happens!

Kid Cudi live debuted two songs then made his debut at the Indio ER

The rapper just wanted to get close to the adoring fans. We saw Bono do it at Live Aid in boots, we've seen Springsteen do it in boots, surely 40 year-old Cudi could pull off a tiny little hop off the stage wearing Nike's?


Which was tragic as he had already live debuted two new songs, "Moon Man Shit" and "Blue Sky," were there more to come?

Kid Cudi live debuted "Moon Man Shit" and "Blue Sky" before had made an unforced error.

Shortly after the owee he tweeted to his 2.5 million followers that he was cool.

"Hey guys, so I broke my foot today at the show. 📷 just leavin the hospital. Never broken a bone before so this is all a bit crazy. I wanna thank u all for ur concerns and well wishes!! I love yall man. I heard yall still ragin when I was offstage. Made me smile big," he wrote.

Fortunately his world tour doesn't start for a few months.

Tyler the Creator reunites with Earl Sweatshirt

Last week Tyler had a parade of guests from Childish Gambino to A$AP Rocky to Charlie Wilson and Kali Uchis and it didn't get the reaction Earl received.

"The one time I’m sad I missed out on Coachella," "okay now im kinda upset," "the world is healing," "i been wanting this since i was 15 this isn't fair lol," "Man this is something I never thought would have ever happened."

Together the pair performed “AssMilk” for the first time in a decade as well as “Rusty.”

The next time Tyler performs isn't until August at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Get your tickets here because who knows who he might surprise the crowd with.
