Kanye West was a huge headliner for Coachella, but there are reports that the rap billionaire had no plans to actually participate at the event.
TMZ added that their sources shared that Kanye West didn’t seem serious about taking to the stage in the first place. It was alleged that the rapper “hadn’t seriously rehearsed for a performance,” which was noted because most artists practice for Coachella for months. There were also allegations that on the production side, there was much more to be finished within this week’s timeframe, however, the festival’s production team was still apparently “completely caught off guard” by West leaving the lineup.
Yet, it has been announced that The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia will take over West’s spot because, in this entertainment industry, the show must go on. Still, fans who purchased Coachella tickets to specifically see West are disappointed.
