Sure, Coachella lost its innocence years ago.
It’s blown up into a celebrity-infested cluster fuck, but you could always count on the music to maintain its integrity.
Lady Gaga should know as well as anyone that nothing undermines musical artistry like crass commercialism. Yet she needed to remind the audience that her new tune “The Cure” was available on iTunes.
She had big shoes to fill. She subbed for pregnant Beyoncé, who dropped out of the festival in February on doctor’s orders.
Still there were enough electrifying moments to keep fans on their feet.
Compared to other pop singers, Gaga is a cut above. You will never catch her lip-syncing. But someone should tell her to just make great songs and let them sell themselves.
She performed during Day Two of the Festival (Weekend 1) at the Empire Polo Club.
