Question: Do we think Coachella as a pit of celebrity heinousness is over? Obviously not in terms of attendance (or buzz, thanks to Beyonce), and there are still plenty of parties in VIP lounges, but this year our sources have a lot fewer photos of famous people ambling around the grounds in loosely woven shirts. I don’t even have ANYTHING of Bella Thorne, except for this shot from her Insta of her getting ready for “an after-party” she was throwing with her weirdo new clothing line.  As I noted, it’s possible she didn’t even go. Or, maybe paparazzi aren’t inside as much anymore, hence the reliance on partiesOr maybe our sources just aren’t as present as others. [Note: To wit, Backgrid, which we no longer use, got her wearing this, so I guess in a sense all is still normal with the world, even though there is nothing normal about wearing netting.] But… maybe… Does this mean Coachella might just go back to being… a music festival first and foremost?!? HEAVEN FORFEND.

Oh, but someone reminded me to check Rihanna’s Instagram, and this awaited me:

That is AN EXPERIENCE, and I treasure her.

Also, I found an offstage Haim shot on their Instagram:

Left Haim looks pretty regular. But, oh, Middle Haim. Of COURSE you did.
