Best Coast spotted canoodling with horrorcore rapper Tyler the Creator...


Best Coast tweeted out this picture of herself canoodling with an African American at Coachella, so if I had to guess, it is buzz rapper "Tyler the Creator" from the hit indie rap buzz group 'The Future is Odd, Yall.' Recently, Tyler was spotted canoodling with Kickball Katy from the Vivian Girls [link], but now it seems like maybe he moved on to a new fuzzy buzzy female.

U have to wonder if WAVVES and Best Coast are still dating, or if she is moving on to a new buzz relationship to prepare for her next album cycle... Say what you will about Best Coast's songwriting pedigree, but at the end of the day, she knows how to generate headlines that help her career.

Do u think Tyler looks good?
Does Bethany look better than ever?
Once u go black, do u never go back?
Are u tired of rappers invading the indiesphere?
Do u know a lot about rap, or do u still accidentally confuse every rapper with Puff Daddy/Conway West?

Vanessa Hudgens does ecstasy at Coachella. #Shame_On_Vanessa

by the UlTiMaTe LaMeStReAmER!!!


Vanessa BB! What were U thinking??

I am honestly not a drug expert because I have been SOBER for a very long time after a few rough patches, but Vanessa Hudgens was rumored to have done lot of DRUGS on a bender at a hipster music festival called Coachella. I can't tell what drug she is doing. Maybe ecstasy, maybe MDMA, maybe cocaine heroine... Maybe even marijuana. I am NOT a drug expert so I do not know...

I am VERY disappointed in Vanessa for setting a bad example for her fans. She is a PARTY GIRL and is headed straight 4 rehab.

I want to give her the benefit of the doubt, because maybe she is just snacking on Mayo, which is something that I do sometimes... but u never know... #MiracleWhip

I had a boyfriend who was a drug dealer, so I know FIRST HAND that drugs can ruin a person, and ruin relationships... I actually went to jail for a short period because my ex was using the garage of my parents house as a meth lab. We can only hope and pray that Vanessa isn't headed down the wrong track after she and Zefron broke up.

#SHAME_ON_VANESSA
However, she does LOOK GOOD, bb!

I could NEVER wear that in public because I am too self-cautious.

Does n e 1 know what type of drug she is using?

Is that a slice of pizza or a drug pipe???

Animal Collective refused to play their hits at Coachella. Did they let their fans down?


Avey....
What r u trying to prove?
I know AnCo's gimmick is to 'test out' new material live
but it's Coachella...
U need to make the fans happy

The crowd chanted "MY... GIRLS... MY .... GIRLS"
"BRO-THER-SPORT"
"DAI-LY ROU-TINE... DAY-LEE ROO-TEEN"
and every other relevant Animal Collective hit....
but u had 2 just play ur new stuff

I sorta wonder
if an-co can 'stay relevant' in the modern indiesphere
Can they 'define relevancy'
Or will they get 'too weird' and isolate their fan base

Panda Bro... What are u doing on the mainstream drumset?

At least Deakin is staying authentic
Banging on some sort of sampler with drumsticks....

Hopefully Deakin can 'save' AnCo from themselves...

The Deak is on...
The Deak is on...

Do u respect Animal Collective for 'staying experimental', or should they always just 'play their hits'?

Danny DeVito is an alt old actor who played the Penguin in Batman Returns, but now he has reinvented himself as a 'bro comedy' legend for 'It is Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Anyways, he went to Coachella and it is 'kewl' because he is old, but at the same time, appeals 2 young ppl who watch comedies on FX.

Alexis Krauss from Sleigh Bells disgraces the iconic Michael Jordan 23 jersey at Coachella


Alexis Krauss from Sleigh Bells is known as one of the top indie female sex icons in indie music. Even if their music is generally unlistenable, her 'edgy hotness' has made her the apple of the blogiosphere's eye for the last ~year and they have carved out a meaningful indie brand where entry-level ppl are all like "This is HARD! Let's mosh, bitches!"

It appears that Alexis made an off-market custom Michael Jordan jersey, except that it saids BELLS on it instead of BULLS... U have to wonder if she is trying to say that Sleigh Bells are 'the Michael Jordan of indie music.'

Do u think this jersey 'went 2 far'?
Are Sleigh Bells the Michael Jordan of indie rock?
If u could compare Sleigh Bells to an NBA player, which 1 would they be? JJ Reddick?
Does Alexis Krauss's sleeve tattoo make u swoon/hornie?
Do u enjoy Sleigh Bells music, or did they just exploit the buzzosphere?
Will they headline Coachella in 2-5 years?

Ariel Pink has MASSIVE on-stage MELTDOWN at Coachella... DEVELOPING

</embed>

Ariel Pink is a highly revered lofi indie legend within authentic internet music circles... However... You'll NEVER guess what happened at his Coachella set. According to various reports, a frustrated Ariel Pink stormed off stage due to sound problems. He left many of his fans 'confused', unsure as to what was happening....

Do u think Ariel's on-stage antics 'crossed the line'? Was he 'being a diva'? Or do u blame 'the sound guy' for 'being a complete dick'?

Ariel Pink, his microphone apparently haunted by a lack of volume, stalked around the stage inside the Gobi tent Friday afternoon without a clear sense of purpose. He spent most of the set smoking cigarettes with his back to the audience, a la early Jim Morrison, only without the sinewy sexual charisma.

Wearing a see-through lace shirt, red sunglasses and a studded black belt, his shoulder-length blond hair tangled, Pink frustrated the crowd, and willingly so, it seemed. He's known for that, though.

Ariel sounds like he looked super hott <3 <3 <3 #TeamAriel. Is Ariel Pink the hottest diva in indie rock?

Were u at Coachelly? Did Ariel Pink let u down, or do u mainly go 2 his shows to 'witness a trainwreck' that mainstreamers don't 'get'?

At one point Pink left the stage, "I'm sorry -- I know you hate me now," he said before disappearing 15 minutes into the show.

"That's it? Are you serious?" said one fan as a confused grumble rose from the crowd. His band stood there for a while and then finally left to retrieve him. It didn't take long, and this time when he came out he appeared to make a bit more effort to interact with the audience, although his energy felt jittery and unbalanced.

It seems like the 'mainstream media' is really jumping on this story... But no word on how indie blogs will cover it.

From SPIN.com:

WORST FRONTMAN: ARIEL PINK
It's hard to know how much of Ariel Pink's stage presence is a put-on and how much is genuine weirdness, but at a certain point, it doesn't matter. When your shtick is being a too-cool-for-school guru of shabby chic who constantly fights the soundman over details that are indistinguishable from the audience, then performs with his back to his fans, well, good luck keeping those fans. Numerous fest-goers took the opportunity to nap under the cool tent, and there was plenty of room to stretch out. Pink's grand finale involved him unplugging his mic then storming off the stage, only to have his flummoxed bandmates coax him back out to the spotlight, where he smoked a cigarette while they finished the set. --C.M.

Do u think Ariel Pink had a 'meltdown'?
Will Ariel Pink be able to become the next Arcade Fire?
Are you glad that Ariel Pink is dedicated to 'staying alt' by sabotaging his own shows?
Is Ariel Pink 'the worst front man' and 'the worst dressed human' in indie music?
Does Ariel Pink need to respect his fans more, or do his authentic fans <3 when he throws down a controversial meme?

Mainstream celeb Whitney Port gives rlly kewl hipster-wave Coachella fashion tips


R u going 2 Coachella?
What r u gonna wear?
How can u stay fashionable AND comfortable?

MTV's hit reality star and Coachella veteran Whitney Port has some KILLER tips that can help u have fun in the sun, look good bb, and get ur Coachella on! Last year she did the same thing, so I guess maybe she is a sponsored Coachelly ambassador or something.

Here are some rlly helpful Coachelly (and music festival fashion tips):

Tip #1: COMFORTABLE SHOES: "Go with Converse or flats. Boots can be cute, but you'll end up with pretty embarrassing tan lines and they can often get a bit hot."


I am worried that my fave shoes are gonna get too muddy... Maybe I will just wear some crocs.... Or maybe some Shape Ups...

Tip #2: COMFY SUNGLASSES: "Ones that actually shield the sun and that you're not constantly worrying about falling off. It's also not a bad idea to bring a cheap $10 pair that you wouldn't be too heartbroken about losing."


I always lose my sunglasses, my car keys, and my baggy of morning after pills. So embarrassing 2 go to Coachella Lost and Found :-(

Tip #3:

STATEMENT NAILS: "Getting my nails done since I'm leaving tomorrow for Coachella and I need to get something crazy!"


I really need to get some 'prison knife shank' style nails so I can claw my way to the front of every relevant set possible. Do u ever go to a local AZN who glues fake nails on ur cuticles?

FAKE TIP: Purchase the Forever 21 Coachella tank top.

You know the old saying... "The only meaningful alt experience is a branded experience..."

R u pumped 4 Coachella?
What r u gonna wear?
Is Whitney Port totally a Coachella pro?
R u gonna run in2 tons of celebs trying 2 be alt at Coachella?
Which of her tips do u agree with/disagree with?
R u gonna stay at home, dress up in 'coachella fashion' and just watch the livestream?

Some alt skanks in bikinis start a roadside lemonade stand to raise money to go 2 Coachella ($20/cup)

</embed>

Coachella is a 'hot ticket' for any human from Southern California. So many buzzbands, so many opportunities to 'catch some rays' while you are 'catching buzzbands.' It looks like some Californian entrepreneurial alt skanks took it upon themselves to try to raise funds to attend Coachella by starting a lemonade stand. While many mainstreamers could have confused them for 'prostitutes' aka 'street walkers', they were actually just trying to make $20/cup of lemonade in order to raise enough capital to purchase a scalped ticket.

I am not sure if I would have purchased lemonade from them unless I actually saw them juicing some lemons. The pink lemonade mix probably indicates that they used a powder-based lemonade and it wasn't anything special. I can't confirm that they made enough money 2 go 2 Coachella, but they could probably look into 'prostitution' at about $200-$300/hr if they wanted to make the money a little bit faster. They have firm, tight bodies and could probably 'get the job done.'

What would U do for a Coachella ticket?
Is 'selling lemonade' a good idea, or should they sell their bodies?
If u saw these alt skanks on the side of the road, what would u think they were up 2?
R u going to start a lemonade stand and try 2 sell goods to go to Coachella?
How far would u go 2 make it 2 Coachella?
Are these girls 'hot' or are they 'ugg' based on Californian standards?

VLOG: Carles shows off his EXCLUSIVE Coachella VIP backstage pass wristband

</embed>

Hey Guys. I thought you would like to see what a CERTIFIED VIP Coachella wristband looks like. I'll be there in the VIP area, bronoodling with buzzbands, taking tons of hi-res photos, and making MASSIVE industry connections. Being in VIP isn't an invite to a '24-hour private party'--it is actually an opportunity to interface with other VIPs. It is a premium opportunity to generate UNIQUE content for your media platform. I know you think I'm 'bragging' by showing off my exclusive access, but it's actually gonna be a difficult job to schedule so many networking ops in such a limited 3-day span. At least you have 1-2 weeks at South-By.

Are yall jealous?

R u going to Coachella?
Do u have a 'generic' wristband, or an EXCLUSIVE VIP ALL ACCESS BACKSTAGE wristband?
Do u <3 ppl who brag abt their alt cred/opportunities?
When ur in VIP, do u just get 'mad hammered' or do u introduce urself to relevant indie artists?
R u going to 'counterfeit' a Coachella wristband?

VLOG: Carles unboxes his Coachella passes [via fancy product packaging]

</embed>

Good news, yall. I just got my Coachella VIP 3 day passes, which looked amazing in this product packaging. They srsly must have hired the same AZN slaves who put Macbooks and iPads into boxes. (As u can see, my Snacks-wave cat was all up in my business, but he is going to go to Cat-chella, which is a similar buzz cat festival.) Anyways, yall can see that Coachella is really giving consumers a valuable product, and it isn't just about selling tickets [via Ticketmaster] and then letting ppl scalp them on stubhub... It's abt getting ppl jacked up on a totally unique music festival.

Rather than the usual paper tickets, Coachella decided this year to institute a policy whereby festival attendees are required to wear a scan-ready wristband. Mine arrived this weekend, along with a ridiculous amount of paraphernalia - including a calendar with every Coachella line-up since 1999. The wristbands are part of an elaborate plan to once and for all clamp down on ticket counterfeiting.

I feel like I am part of a 'VIP club' or something. I'm not just going to a corporate event... Instead I am going to a place that really understands how to make EVERY1 feel like a VIP. I am rlly glad I paid $900 to get a chance to enter this exclusive Coachella club.

Here is the box that it came in...

So much unique packaging, brochures, inserts, and laminated flyers

I hope no1 steals my Coachella wristbands. I sorta wish my box came with a pre-loaded Zune or some sort of misguided doomed-to-fail wireless/post-iPod technology.

r u mad pumped 4 Coachella?
Do all music festivals have to send 'prize boxes' now?
Did Carles seem pumped as he unboxed his Coachella passes?
Does coachella 'feel more special' because of this 'box of Coachella shit' or do they need 2 step it up?
Have u ever unboxed anything on youtube?
Should more alternative ppl 'unbox' alt stuff like TOMBOY albums, MP3s, etc?

Forever 21 starts selling product called the "Coachella Tank Top" 4 alt girls


Have yall ever been 2 the relevant music festival Coachella? Have u been inspired by the QT alt girls wearing tons of free-spirited tank tops / tube tops / alternative sexi clothing? What if I told u that a shirt was designed

Not sure if this was an official collaboration with Coachella, or if Coachella is gonna 'sue the fuck' out of Forever 21 for exploiting their brand.

Knit tank features Navajo inspired print and racerback silhouette. Lightweight. Scoopneck, sleeveless.
- 23.5" approx. length from high point shoulder to hem, 32" chest, 34" waist, 9" sleeve length from shoulder ridge, 10.5" shoulder width
- Measured from Small
- 100% cotton
- Machine wash cold, tumble dry low
- Imported

Have yall ever been inspired by the Navajo people to start a Neon Indian buzzband, or design a Neon Coachella tank top?

Should I get the shirt in Neon Yellow or Neon Coral?
neon yellow coachella tank forever 21

Really feel like this shirt could maybe expose a little bit more sideboob, but maybe if you have above a c-cup, you'll be good.

Do u think Forever 21 'nailed it' with this shirt?
Is the Urban Outfitters lead product designer 'pissed' that they didn't invent this shirt? Will they respond by making a 'Lollapalooza'/'ACL'/'Bonnaroo'/'SXSW' tube top?
Can Coachella 'sue' Forever 21 because of this shirt's name?
Will it be entry-level if some alt wears a Coachella tank 2 Coachella?
Is Forever 21 just for mainstreamers and lamestreamers and hefty 20something girls looking for 'girls night out' slutwave gear at a low price?
Does Coachella fashion 'inspire u'?
Whenever u see a girl in a tank top, do u obsessively monitor the potential of their breasts/nips slipping out?

Does Crystal Castles have grounds 2 sue Coachella 4 misspelling their name on the official flyer?


When the official Coachella lineup .jpg was released last night, many people were focused on the headlining buzzbands. However, they didn't realize that 1 of the indie-est bleepy bloops buzzbands in the world had their name misspelled on the flier. As u can see, they added an extra "t" 2 their name, making ppl think that the name of their band is "Crystal Castlest."

This begs the question, does Crystal Castles have the right to 'sue the fuck' out of Coachella for misleading and misrepresenting their brand? Is there a contractual obligation 2 'spell their name correctly'? Did Crystal Castles lose out on hundreds of thousands of new fans because of this typo?

We went ahead and asked a legal expert who knows a lot abt buzzband rights, the indiesphere, and festival .jpg laws, and this is what they had to say.

It's really not a big deal. They already fixed it. Why are you trying to turn this into an internet meme? U should just drop it. No1 really cares. Crystal Castlest sounds kewler than 'Crystal Castles' anyways. Have u evr eaten at that restaurant Krystal? They make pretty terrible lil burgers.

Should Crystal Castles 'sue' Coachella?
Is this a 'dark moment' for Crystal Castles?
Did they lose a lot of fans who googled "Crystal Castlest" instead of "Crystie Casties"?
Is the Coachella lineup 'terrible' or 'mad buzzworthy'?
Is Crystal Castles losing thousands of fans bc of this 1 typo?

R u a legal expert?

Do u 'give a shit' abt the Coachella lineup?


I live in the middle of the country
Thousands of miles away from Southern California

I live in Europe
Oceans away from SoCal

I live in Africa
I don't rlly listen 2 indie music

However, I hear 'wonderful tales'
'mad hype'
Nothing but positive vibes
abt a magical land called Coachella

A place where only the most relevant indie + mainstream buzzbands
go 2 play
4 the most authentic, free-spirited fans in the world

There is a regional music festival in my area
but it doesn't have the brand/history of Coachella
Every year ppl make a big deal
"When are they going 2 reveal the Coachelly lineup?"
"I heard rumors that [broken up buzzband] is reuniting at Coachella"
"I heard that [mainstream indie band] is finally gonna get their due and headline Coachella"
"I heard that the art installations are gonna be hella sick this year."
"Maybe I will start a blog and get a press pass this year."

We get it Coachella...
ur a music festival...
U have a bunch of bands playing

I have the same kind of experience available on my computer
except it is in my iTunes, stored in a series of mp3s
and I don't have 2 the bathroom in a portapotty when I have to poop

Oh kewl, u booked [band that gets a lot of blog hype]? Sweet. I love that band
Oh damn! I can't wait to check out [mad hyped DJ] in the electro tent.
It's gonna be great 2 see [black rapper] with all of these other indie white man bands.
Whoa. U booked the Leon King Arcade Fire Kanye Wests? Gonna have 2 check that out

It's just such a shame
that I am a Middle American
trapped in suburbia
Nowhere near 'Neon Indio, CA'
so I don't even rlly know what Coachella is
but even as a young alt
I could tell that it was a 'special place'
[via blog headlines]

Should I go on an alt pilgrimage 2 Coachella?
Do u wish u could be in a successful buzzband and demand a 'minimum font pixel height size' when Coachella is trying 2 book u?

Do u 'give a shit' abt Coachella?
Should I move 2 Brooklyn or move 2 a shanty town in Coachella?
What do u think abt the official 2011 Coachella festival grounds map?

When u read abt Coachella/see the flyer, does it make u want to go there, or do u just feel sad + trapped in Middle American suburbia?
R u going 2 Coachella?
Did Coachella 'crush it' with their lineup, or does every year's lineup just represent the intensity of the mainstreamification of indie?

Coachella releases Official 2011 Lineup, Forgets to include artists on poster


Not sure what is going on with Coachella and their design team. For some reason, they released this poster today, answering the question "When Is Coachella 2011?" but not really answering the question, "Who is playing Coachella 2011?" Feeling confused. Not sure why this poster exists. Seems like those are dates on the poster, but not a huge list of buzzbands.

Super disappointed by the lack of information in this .jpg.
Maybe this is just some sort of 'private jpg' for industry insiders so they can put the dates on their Outlook calendars, or they have to 'secure this date' so no other music festivals try 2 compete with them.

It seems like a kinda lonely field depicted in the image, maybe trying to represent a lack of buzzbands in Indio, California. Probably a metaphor for the buzz drought of 2k10, and how we are just 'praying' for 2k11 to restore positive indie vibes with new, relevant albums and buzzbands. Really hope Coachella isn't in some sort of 'booking crisis', unable to book buzzbands cuz they are all demanding 2 much money. Hope Coachella will work out. Things aren't looking too good.

R u gonna go to Coachella?
Are buzz mp3s and buzzbands hard 2 find in 2k10?
Will the indiesphere 'recover' by 2k11?
Should the 'designer' who created this meme .jpg be 'fired' for leaving out tons of information?
Will Jay-Z and Beyonce 'curate' an indie stage at Coachella?
Should I make a copy of this .jpg at Kinko's and put it up as a poster on my wall?

Coachella Lost & Found Pix: Careless Hipsters Lose iPhones, Blackberries, BMW Keys, digital cameras & more

Note: This headline was generated to 'create a wave of hipster bashing headlines.' By calling all people who attended Coachella 'hipsters', this story is 85% more bloggable. The most expensive items were deceptively listed in this post's headline, but they are a very small snapshot of what was actually in the Coachella Lost & Found. In general, this post utilized the word 'hipsters' to inspire a wave of blog disdain for 'careless young people', making it seem like every1 who attended Coachella was just some spoiled lil rich ass hole who doesn't give a shit abt anything, especially cars + technology that cost a lot of $$$.


Coachella is a music festival held in Southern California that turns into a gathering of the world's most relevant buzzbands, artists, designers, celebrities, and internet personalities. Sometimes regular people even go to this music festival, do some drugs, get a lil bit tipsy, then end up losing something important. Have u ever lost something important to u at a place with a bunch of people?

Would u be most bummed about losing ur keys, your cell phone, or your camera?

Wonder what it is like to get back 2 ur car, then think 'shit. can't get us home.'

Feel sad for the bros who lost their iPhones. I feel like when they bought them, they probably never imagined living without them again. Maybe since they bought iPads, they thought their iPhones were disposable.

Wonder if people who lost their cameras were 'mad pissed' that they didn't get to make a 'coachella 2010 mutha fuckaaaz' album on facebook

'Even though my flip phone cover is cracked, I still really need my phone back.  I can't qualify for a discounted upgrade for another 1.2 years.'

sad i lost my corporate blackberry. They are gonna downgrade me 2 a blackberry pearl   :-(

Wasn't able to get into my apartment when I returned home.  Had to live in my car for 2 weeks until I saw the Coachella Lost and Found Website.

Were yall alive before keyless entry was invented?

'I feel sad that I lost my  gym membership tag, my dead grandfather's key chain, but most importantly, my Twilight Robert Pattinson collectible keychain.  I actually went to Coachella to see bands off the New Moon sound track.'

wonder who the super alt dude who lost his disposable camera was. Do u think he/she deserves to get it back?

So many bros with HD flip cams, unable to add sweet video content to their youtube channels. Standing 200 feet away from an artist, holding up your video camera, capturing the live experience.

Should all of these people feel ashamed of themselves 4 losing important stuff, or is that just a risk when you go to a field with 200,000 people?

What would u do if u lost ur iPhone / iPad?
Are 'hipsters' fucking careless ass holes?
Are people who went to coachella 'rich and careless'?
Have u ever lost ur cell phone / keys / digital camera?
Do u wish there was a facebook for lost and found items called 'Craig's List of Lost and Found stuff'?

Festival Bro Meme goes viral: Drunk Guy Can’t Put on his flip flop at Coachella

</embed>

It seems like this video of a drunk bro in a Hurley shirt struggling to put on his flip flop at Coachella has 'tore up' the internet, since it was released on April 19, getting 'tons of youtube views.' I am not sure if his struggle to put on his flip flop is similar to the universal struggle that all humans must endure. Maybe people can relate to him since he is just a bro in a Hurley shirt, wearing some flip flops. Not sure if it is a Jansport or a North Face backpack.

Not sure why it went viral. Probs not even funnie. Lame music on in the background. Maybe people just want to say 'look at those effing hipsters at music festivals.' Maybe it's because tons of cute festival girls walk by in their revealing, breathable clothing. Do u feel like this meme was 'barely watchable' and 'definitely not sharable'?
Not even sure if he is on drunk. Do u know what kind of drug he is on?

Is this video truly worthy of 'going viral' or were you sorta let down by how 'lame' it was?
Would u rather see videos of intoxicated people almost killing themselves instead of just struggling to put on a flip flop?
Wonder if this video should get a 'record deal' since it got so many youtube views.

Group of Drunk Bitches Who ‘run LA’ party with Yolandi from Die Antwoord @ a Coachella Pool Partie

</embed>

In a previous post [link], a group of drunk bitches claimed to 'run Los Angeles.' In the vlog, they made many claims about their party lifestyle. They inspired numerous 'internet haters' to come out in full force, claiming that the girls were just 'a stereotype' and falsely claiming to be relevant / coke dealers / 'the shit.'

A video of these two drunk girls partying with Yolandi from Die Antwoord was released on youtube, perhaps an 'eff u' to all of the people who thought that they didn't run LA. In the video, the two girls seem to really be 'bro-ing down' with Yolandi Visser in a way that only girls can. A total tipsy giggle-fest while listening 2 great tunes and drinking free alcohol.

Is Coachella a place where u can meet all of your favourite alternative celebrities, and they will be 'totally kewl' with u?

Creepy fan videos of Jay-Z & Beyonce watching Beach House at Coachella emerges.


Jay-Z watched a bunch of alt bands at Coachella. It seems like there is a meme feast going down, because his interest in the alt indie buzzband scene has finally given indie fans a sense of validation, like our music is finally appreciated by the black Bob Dylan of our generation.

Wonder if this video of Jay-Z and Beyonce watching Beach House 'crossed the line.' Like the bro who took it 'went too far' to invade their space just so it would get embedded in some music blogs. I think these people filmed the famous people for a while, then pretended 2 be filming the show.

</embed>

Wonder if traditional music blogs can 'run this story' or if Jay-Z will ban them from getting his exclusives. Wonder if fans in the crowd tried to get close to Jay-Z instead of 'getting close 2 the front of the stage.'

Here is another video of Jay-Z + bodyguard behind a sea of alts. The people who took this video used the technique where they pretended they were filming their friends. Started 2 feel bad for them in this video. People 'straight up' holding up their iPhones to them like they are at a zoo.

</embed>

Do u ever wish u were famous, or would u settle for being microfamous?
Do u like watching famous people at alternative events?
Do famous people deserve personal space, or are they trained to deal with privacy invasion?
Who would Jay-Z rather collab with: The XX, Grizzly Bear, or Beach House?
Next time you see some1 famous at a concert, r u gonna take footage of them watching the show?
Do people do this kind of thing just to 'seem like they were some where special' when they post these videos in their facebook feeds?
Do you think Jay-Z and Beyonce would rather be hounded by a white festival goer than a group of African Americans at a hostile venue?

Hills Floozie / Coachella Expert Whitney Port ‘gets her hipster on’ at Coachella


After writing a 'survival guide 4 Coachella', popular reality TV star Whitney Port 'got her hipster on' at Coachella. It seemed like she was really knowledgeable abt how 2 'last' at a music fest. She really knows who the current leaders of the indie movement are, and what she needs to wear / eat in order to survive a 3 day music festival.

It seems like she was the 'leader' of some sort of posse of 'weekend hipsters.' Like the sort of 'rich girls' who pretend they are 'alt' when they go 2 a music festival / mainstream indie concert, but probs spent a lot of money on their outfits.

[via brand new Converse shoes]

Tip #2: Wear really comfy shoes — sneakers are definitely best. Feet get really sweaty. NO SANDALS! Your feet will be covered in dirt within the first hour.

Do u think she looks 'most alt' in this outfit? Do u like her long figure? Should she be a model?

So many days at Coachella. Just want a functional, fashionable look that will help me stay cool. Need 2 be ready in case paparazzi photograph me.

Do yall know what bands she saw?

Vampire Weekend – These guys kind of called it early. Their look and sound is now driving the current indie movement, as well as Urban Outfitters’ Spring campaign. East Coast beach is in.

Have u been wearing East Coast Beach this spring?
What was ur fave Whitney Port Coachella Survival Tip?

Tip #9: Bring a lightweight hoodie — it gets cold once the sun goes down.

Did she follow all of her rules about being comfy, wearing sun screen, and watching kewl buzzbands?

MGMT doesn’t play “KIDS” at Coachella, pisses off fans.


MGMT recently released a 'controversial album' called Congratulations. Many fans were 'let down' because their new songs weren't as catchy / poppy as their old songs. Instead, they carved out some sort of conceptual space that isn't as approachable as Animal Collective.

At the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, MGMT opted not to play their first big song "Kids." In many recent interviews, the MGMT Bros say that 'Kids' was one of the first songs they wrote, so they are looking to distance themselves from their early brand, and prove that they can write better songs.

Well, now imagine the concert is the monster of all concerts (Coachella), the band one of the buzziest there is right now (MGMT), and the song (“Kids”) one that Rolling Stone named as among the top 100 songs of the decade. The Brooklyn-based duo played most of their less-accessible second album at the music festival today, yet chose not to play one of their three hits, angering tweeting fans and bloggers alike. Remains to be seen if fans will be getting another apology, or if, as they said about response to their second album, they just "don't give a shit."

Seems like tons of fans are 'taking 2 twitter' to let MGMT know that they are 'effing pissed off' that they paid $300 for a 3 day pass and didn't even get to hear "Kids."

Do u think MGMT did the right thing by not playing "Kids"?
Should they move forward with their sound, or should they make fans happy?
Are MGMT fans inauthentic if they just want to hear "Kids", "Electric Feel" and "Time To Pretend"?

Here is a video of MGMT playing "kids" before they were international rock stars. Just a couple of bros in college, really embodying the 'spirit of rock n roll', playing a cute lil song to a college party.

</embed>

Is MGMT going to 'alienate' their core fan base, or will they force their core fan base to like their new sound?
Is "Kids" the greatest song that MGMT will ever write?
If you were MGMT's manager, what would u tell them to do? Make their fans happy, or 'stay true 2 their vision'?

Agyness Deyn nip slip at Coachella


Wonder if Agyness Deyn strategically wore this dress without a bra because she knew her nipple would slip out, and she would cause more 'blog headlines' due to hornie bros 'clicking thru' to inspect the nip. Feel like this is a some what underwhelming nipslip, like you wish you could see a little bit more. But maybe that's what makes nip slips so great. 'The element of the unknown.'

Does n e 1 know if members of the paparazzi go to Coachella just to take pix of celebrities looking alt? Not sure how Los Angeles works. Feel like I would have 'creamed my pants' if I were a 16 year old bro at coachella, and saw an international super model with her nip exposed.

Seems like she is looking at the camera with a face that says 'Why r u invading my space?' but doesn't realize that she has a nip slip going on.

Do u think Agyness Deyn is pretty?
Do u like her nip?
Should famous people be allowed to 'chill' at music festivals?
Should I start drinking Sprite so I can be a super model?
Will Agyness Deyn 'crossover' after she dates John Mayer?

Alt Celeb Bros: Diplo & Vampy Weeks ‘become bros’ at Coachella

Photo via tweetphoto


Just saw this picture of Vampire Weekend and Diplo at Coachella. Seems like they really 'became bros.' Probably talked about their influences, Afro-beat stuff, and other great artists to sample. Maybe compared notes on 'how to get a coachella crowd fired up.' Feel like this picture gives me the right to 'erroneously report' that there will be a Major Lazer Remix of "Horchata" by Vampire Weekend.

Wonder if alternative celebrities are 'authentic bros' or if they are just gonna use one another for remixes.
Wonder if Diplo really cares about 'the indie movement' or if he is just trying to tweet out memes for music blogs 2 jump on.

Does n e 1 know Diplo's real name?
What do u think they talked abt?
Is Ezra Koenig the hottest bro in indie music?

John Mayer tries 2 make love 2 Agyness Deyn + other fat chick at Coachella


Just saw this picture of John Mayer in some sort of circle of pals at Coachella, a new music festival somewhere in California. Since I am trying to 'turn into a gossip blog', feel like I am allowed to create interesting, yet misleading headlines. Not sure if he was actually trying to 'get' with Agyness Deyn, or if she would even be into him. She dated one of the Strokes [via Green Aggs and Ham] so she theoretically would date John Mayer to take her modeling career to the next level. I encourage and support her if she decides to date John Mayer, then have 'a meltdown' like that one girl who was on Friends [via NBC].

Wonder if he got turned on by her little boy haircut / buzz cut. Also u were probably able to see some sweet nip slips since her dress is so 'provocative.'

John Mayer was probably intimidated by the ultra- alt 4 life guys that she is with. Feel scared of them, like they have personal brands that could provide 1 year's worth of content for 'hipster bashing snark blogs.'

Wonder if he got intimidated by their alt-ness, then just decided to 'try 2 bang some big, beautiful woman.'

Photo via gawkers


Feel bad for the 'hefty' woman in this photo. Maybe she is just having a bad stretch, put on some weight, and now exists as an internet meme that 'showcases the douchiness of John Mayer.'

Worried that her identity is gone.

By consuming these photos, do u feel like u really 'experienced' Coachella?
Should Agyness Deyn date John Mayer?
Do u like Agyness Deyn's new haircut?
Is it 'totally chill' of John Mayer 2 go 2 Coachella?
Should famous people stay out of the spot light so they don't produce memes?

TWITTER CHATTER: Jay-Z ‘in the audience’ to watch the XX at Coachella


While many indie music blogs will tell you that Jay-Z attending an indie concert is 'kewl' because he is 'digging our culture', it has actually become a frightening trend in the modern indiesphere. It seems like he is trying to steal 'what is ours', and presenting it to new mainstream audiences who won't appreciate the organic indie buzz internet scene. Even though most inauthentic indie fans will feel a sense of approval / legitimacy when some one famous likes the same music as they do, it doesn't mean they should be allowed to 'steal' the culture/movement that 'we' created by illegally downloading mp3s.

Jay-Z was reportedly 'in the audience' at the XX's coachella performance. This was reported by veteran twitter journalist Diplo while he was at Coachella, possibly just to attach himself to the meme and get more followers.

I was watching MGMT in the dance hall tent when this happened, otherwise I probably would have confronted Jay-Z, and told him 2 stay away from Coachella, even though most mainstreamers probably paid 2 see him.

What is Jay-Z most likely to sample first?
a) Grizzly Bear "Two Weeks"
b) Dirty Projectors "Stillness is the Move"
c) The XX "Intro"
d) choose yalls own indie response

Will "Jay-Z watching the XX at coachella" photos emerge, or will this event remain a twitter myth forever?
Was Jay-Z mobbed like he was at the Brooklyn Grizzly Bear show?

Should Grizzly Bear + The Dirty Projectors feel bad that Jay-Z 'ditched them' for a younger, newer buzzband?
Is the XX here 2 stay as an indie force, or did they just exploit a weak flow of new artists in late 2k9?
Do u trust Jay-Z or is he just going to steal our best mp3s, sample them, and turn them into songs that sell to multi-colored markets?
Is his stillness his movement?
Do u trust Beyonce, Solange Knowles, and Jay-Z, or are they just 'using' indie markets to stay critically revered?
Would u rather have a 3some with Beyonce + Jay-Z OR the two singers from the XX?

One of the floozies from ‘The Hills’ writes a Coachella Survival Guide full of ‘innovative’ festival tips


From what I understand, The Hills is one of the most popular cable television shows of all time. The show features a series of entitled bitches searching for meaning / relevancy / a fulfilling relationship / a fulfilling career, kinda like regular people in society. One of the characters in the fake / real show is called Whitney Port. I think she pursued a meaningful career in fashion by leaving Los Angeles and moving to 'The City.'

N e ways, I think some website hired her to write some 'survival guide' for coachella. I think these types of people will only do stuff for money. Like they will only 'go 2 a club' if some1 pays them. I think they only blog for money, too.

It seems like she is a real 'professional' at going to music festivals. Are her tips 'obvious'/'retarded' or 'genuinely helpful'?

As an experienced Coachella-goer, I wanted to share some important survival tips with all of you first-timers.

Tip #1: Load up on the sunscreen, people! I got crazy burnt my first year, and I’ve never worn anything less than SPF 30 every year after. Also, wear a hat or sunglasses, because the sun is really strong until about 7:30pm.

Tip #2: Wear really comfy shoes — sneakers are definitely best. Feet get really sweaty. NO SANDALS! Your feet will be covered in dirt within the first hour.

Tip #3: Setting up meeting places and times with friends is key to Coachella survival. It’s really easy to get lost, and cell phone reception is not great.

Tip #4: A sheet is definitely a good thing to bring, and it’s easy to fit in your backpack. You’ll be doing a lot of walking around so it’s always nice to have something to sit on.

Tip #5: For your favorite acts, make sure to get to the stage super early. The same goes for when you’re seeing shows in the dance tent, because it fills up really quickly.

Tip #6: Don’t wear anything you don’t mind getting really sweaty or spilled on. If you do, chances are you won’t be wearing them again.

Tip #7: If you are hungry, eat spicy pizza. It’s worth the $7.

Tip #8: Pace yourself, don’t start drinking mimosas at 3pm. Also, drink a LOT of water — it’s good to rotate between alcohol and water to stay hydrated.

Tip #9: Bring a lightweight hoodie — it gets cold once the sun goes down.

Tip #10: This year, since there are “ins and outs”, don’t be afraid to get there early, then leave for a pool/food break, and then come back strong for the evening sets.

Which 1 of her tips is the most helpful? Drinking water? Bringing a mat 2 sit on when ur tired?

Another highlight was her 'list of bands that she is rlly looking forward 2 seeing':

1. Jay-ZJay-Z is king. From his cameos to his albums, he dominates. His lyrics are now catchphrases ingrained into our culture. His shows usually cost $100+, so seeing him at Coachella is a deal not to miss.

2. La Roux – I like La Roux’s style as much as her songs. Can’t wait to hear “Bulletproof” live!

3. Vampire Weekend – These guys kind of called it early. Their look and sound is now driving the current indie movement, as well as Urban Outfitters’ Spring campaign. East Coast beach is in.

4. Miike Snow – Miike Snow (aka Bloodshy & Avant) produced Britney’s “Toxic”. Needless to say, they know how to make things sound epic. Expect nothing less from their danceable sets.

5. MGMT – “Electric Feel” was probably the song of the decade for many of you. Their new album is more beachy but I’m hoping it will really shine through from the Coachella Stage.

Was MGMT's "Electric Feel" ur song of the decade?
Did Urban Outfitters rip off the Vampire Weekend aesthetic, or did Vampire Weekend rip off the _____ aesthetic?
