Can you guess which singer is being honoured for their humanitarian projects? Rihanna has been named the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year! She built a cancer centre in her home country of Barbados, and created scholarship and child education projects there.
It looks like Beyonce’s pregnancy is forcing her to drop out of Coachella this year. In early February, Beyonce announced she is expecting twins with Jay Z, and she was scheduled to headline the festival this spring, but that will no longer be happening.
In an exclusive statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice said the singer pulled out of the event based on the advice of her doctors. “Following the advice of her doctors to “keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months.” Festival organizers also note that the singer has rescheduled and will headline the 2018 festival. Coachella-goers have taken to social media to express their disappointment at the announcement:
I literally only bought a Coachella ticket for Beyoncé. This is stupid. Who wants my ticket?!— Amanda Castillo (@ACastillo121) February 23, 2017
Beyoncé isn't performing at Coachella now and I'm praying they find someone better or equally as good as her or I'm demanding a refund😅— Kaley Stockton (@kaaaaaleyyy) February 23, 2017
