5 Of The Best Things That Happened At Coachella 2019

Five things you might've missed if you didn't go to Coachella.


Coachella is one of the biggest music festivals in Indio, California that many who can afford it or those who get paid to go look forward to. Many look forward to dressing up for Coachella because there is no set way to dress and many of the outfits that you see are really amazing. The lineup always has a lot of different artists each year. It is flooded with an endless amount of influencers and celebrities walking around, listening to music, or simply just taking pictures to post on their social media. Tickets are a little expensive ranging from $400 and up not including having to find a place to stay and getting out to the festival. The tickets also sell out within a day which makes it even harder to attend the festival. There is a split between people who love Coachella and those who think it's dumb since most people don't even go to listen to the bands. This year there were a few things from Weekend One that happened that make those who like Coachella a little jealous that they weren't there to see it.

1. Billie Eilish finally met Justin Bieber.

Billie Eilish, a singer, and songwriter, best known for her single "Ocean Eyes" has been a fan of Justin Bieber, like many others, since before she was even famous. There have been times where she's admitted to DM'ing him and saying she only wanted to be famous to meet him. Billie Eilish was recently on Ellen where she talked more about how she loves Justin Bieber and is dying to meet him. Leading up to Coachella, Justin Bieber had replied to the video of Billie on Ellen on Twitter and then proceeded to comment on her picture to check her DM's. After her amazing performance at Coachella Justin Bieber posted on his Instagram about how great her performance was. Later, they were both at the Ariana Grande set when fans captured the cute moment of the two finally meeting and hugging. Fans of Billie Eilish have been wanting these two to meet and even collaborate on a song so many were very excited to see it finally happen at such a large public event.

2. Ariana Grande brought out NSYNC for her performance.

Ariana Grande headlined and performed at Coachella this year, which many were looking forward to and to make it even better she reunited and brought out NSYNC, except for Justin Timberlake, to join her in singing "Tearin Up My Heart". No one at Coachella really knew this was going to happen so it seemed like it made it even better. Grande gushed about the guys on her Instagram with many pictures claiming that they are the nicest and coolest people and she wouldn't want it any other way.

3. Kacey Musgraves' played a game of Simon Says.

Kacey Musgraves, a country-pop singer, who is best known for her songs "Golden Hour" and "Rainbow" on her Grammy-winning album performed at Coachella this year and looked stunning while doing so. Kacey Musgraves took off her heels and was running across the stage with such high energy and decided to up the energy even more with the California crowd. In a video that has gone viral all over Twitter, she tells the crowd when I say "Yee", you say "Haw" and does this a few times. She then repeats herself again and like Simon Says she just points the microphone towards the crowd without saying "Yee" and they all scream "Haw" and she replies that she didn't say "f*ckin "Yee". The video has been spread everywhere and even caused more of Musgraves' tweets to go viral because of how random and funny they are.

4. Billie Eilish blows the crowd away with her performance.

Billie Eillish arrived thirty minutes late on stage because of serious technical issues but fans were determined to wait it out and it seemed like it was definitely worth it. All of the videos of her performance prove it so. Billie Eilish only released her new album a few weeks ago and fans already knew every single word. As she sang they were singing right along with her. Billie Eilish wasn't even considered a headliner in comparison to Ariana Grande but it definitely seemed like she was because of how many people were watching her perform, including many celebrities. She even stood on a bed that was hanging in the air while singing one of her songs onstage.

5. Childish Gambino airdropped free shoes to people.

Random people at Coachella were surprised with a random Airdrop request at Coachella Day One from a person named Donald Glover, who is the actor and singer also known as Childish Gambino. Many seemed skeptical at first of this but those that decided to accept this random airdrop were rewarded with a pair of free shoes. The shoes are from Childish Gambino's collaboration with Adidas. To get the shoes you just had to go to a certain tent at Coachella within 60 minutes and show the airdrop confirmation.

After experiencing my first week of classes, I have learned that every student needs a handy-dandy list of fun facts about themselves to tell other people.

Is there someone you adore? Who mesmerizes you? Who do you wish to learn from? After watching "A Ballerina's Tale," I discovered Misty Copeland.

Her passion, grace, and strength continuously motivate me to better myself as an athlete and an individual.

4. This art speaks to me because...

Coco Chanel said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." This encourages me to always follow my heart no matter what. I will never follow society's standards and norms because they do not define me. Chanel's saying definitely influences my character and lifestyle.

Angelina Jolie is a knife thrower. Kendall Jenner can produce bird noises. Amanda Seyfried can crochet and knit. Is there anything special you can do? Some people have rare and unique talents, maybe you can think of some hidden talents of your own!

Not Having The 'Picture Perfect' Body Shape Doesn't Mean You Can't Wear A Bikini

All shapes and size are acceptable and beautiful.


Summer has finally come again and it's now the time where everyone regrets not working out to get their "perfect" summer body. I'm here to say that these summer bodies everyone has been talking about are an unhealthy way to look at yourself and can hurt one's body image. If you're a size zero, that's great for you. If you're not a size zero, that is still great for you. There is no defined size that is required to wear a bikini during the summer, and there shouldn't be these unrealistic society norms on who can and can't wear them.

My entire life I was never worried about my size or how I look in a clothing item such as a bathing suit during the summer. I had always maintained a small figure from being active in grade school all the way through high school. Now that I am in college with no daily or weekly (and sometimes even monthly) exercise routine, I have gained weight and started to feel self conscious in what I look like in certain items that show my stomach. I don't look like the swimsuit models that are posted all over Instagram and started to feel that when summer came along I shouldn't be caught dead in a bathing suit or a shirt that showed any part of my stomach. I was beginning to feel bad about my body image because I didn't have the body shape or size that is considered to be a "society norm" and let it get to me. This is when I knew I needed to change my mindset, and not my physical appearance.

Just because someone isn't a certain size doesn't mean they should be shame into not wearing something they like or makes them feel good about themselves. Summertime is all about being in the sun at the beach or at the pool and getting a tan and getting in the water. This things require a swimsuit of some sort. The size and shape of someone's body shouldn't put a restriction on what type of bathing suit they choose to wear, and no one should comment on how they look in it in a negative manner. For some people, it's hard to lose weight just as it is hard for some people to gain weight. Society is always making remarks about girls being "too small" or "too big" or comments that are similar to those and it's putting a negative effect on how women view themselves which makes it harder for them to have a sense of self love.

Let a woman feel good about herself in what she's wearing no matter her size and leave the rude comments to yourself. Whether she is a size 0 or greater, she is still adding beauty into the world. If you want to wear a bikini, then do it. Don't let the negative people in society harshen your summertime fun.
