Something that makes me perhaps irrationally angry: the fact that the richer and more famous a celeb gets, the less he or she has to pay for. In fact, the richer a celeb gets, the more money is thrown at them to do things they would normally pay to do anyway. For example! Lea Michele, Aaron Paul, Kate Bosworth and Vanessa Hudgens are just some of the celebs who are either definitely being paid or demanding to be paid mad money to attend this weekend’s Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. They are all celebs who’ve attended the festival for fun in the past — Hudgens’ entire wardrobe is made up of Coachella-friendly gear and Paul famously met his perfect wife there a few years ago — but when fame presents an opportunity to MAKE money off something you would normally pay for, I guess you go for it.

It’s maybe kind of sad that it’s possible for a random summer concertgoer to be a Halloween costume. Whatever.

DJ Cornmeal, The Chelsea Clintons, Obesity Epidemic, Get The Fuck Out Of My Pool … those are just some of the completely bullshit bands that not only don’t exist but definitely did not play the Coachella Music Festival over the weekend. As this hilarious Jimmy Kimmel prank shows, it’s amazing the extensive lies people will tell in order to seem hip.
Huzzah, outdoor music festival season has started! Crowds! Disgusting port-a-potties! Overpriced water! Blistering temperatures! And, oh yeah, tons of awesome bands playing in the same space! Each festival season, this highly lucrative meshing of art and consumerism kickstarts in Indio, California, with the two-weekend-long Coachella Music Festival. Located just a few hours away from Hollywood, Coachella is also where the celebs head to let down their hair, expose their navals, channel their designer hippie vibe, smoke pot in public, and culturally-appropriate as much as possible. Let’s review who’s been spotted this year thus far, by learning what happens when celebs go to Coachella…
The Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, draws in celebrities from far and wide. But perhaps the most unexpected celebrity attendee, um, ever? Clint Eastwood, who attended the music festival with daughter Francesca. No word on whether he complained about the racket or brought along his favorite “chair.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
