According to reports, Em, Bey and R&B superstar The Weeknd are low-key headlining the popular California two-weekend event.
Detroit rap icon Eminem, pop music queen Beyoncé, and R&B crooner The Weeknd are set to headline the 2018 edition of Coachella, industry sources tell Consequence of Sound. America’s preeminent music festival returns for its 19th edition on April 13th-15th and April 20th-22nd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. An official lineup announcement is expected in early January coinciding with the on sale of tickets. (Consequence of Sound)
Coincidentally, Queen Bey missed out on last year’s festival after announcing a headline-generating pregnancy.
For Queen Bey, performing at the 2018 Coachella would be keeping her promise. She was pregnant last year, so she couldn’t take the stage at the typically star-studded festival. For Slim Shady, it means performing in front of his biggest audience in years. Headlining the 2018 Coachella would also give Weeknd another chance to deliver an epic performance of his fantastic Starboy album. Of course, none of this has been confirmed yet. (XXL Mag)
This week, Em received some unexpected shade courtesy of President Donald Trump‘s son.
It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp https://t.co/suToF4D193

In a new interview, Em dishes on his issues with Donald Trump and desire to see him get impeached.
“It’s not so much about him hearing something I have to say, because there’s nothing I’m saying about him on Revival that he doesn’t already know about himself. It’s more that I want him to answer me because I got ideas for all kinds of shit to say back to him if he does. … [Trump in 2018?] I hope he gets impeached. I’d be there for that.” (Vulture)
