From Beyonce to Gwen: Seeing stars at Coachella

There’s a lot of great music at Coachella. But part of the fun is seeing stars trade in their red carpet outfits for more bohemian looks at the three-day festival. Over this past weekend, celebrities popped up all over the desert, rocking out to sets — and sometimes hopping on stage.

Coachella kicked off Friday night with hip-hop duo Outkast, who reunited for the first time in eight years for their set. “It’s good to be back,” Big Boi told the audience. The reunion was cut short, however, when a tech guy reportedly killed their microphones around 1 a.m. —  meaning they were unable to bring out Killer Mike for their finale of “The Whole World.” The audience was not pleased.

On Saturday night, new mom Gwen Stefani — who just gave birth last month — popped up on stage to join headliner Pharrell Williams for “Hollaback Girl.” Stefani wasn’t the only bold-faced name to join the rapper on stage — Nelly came on for “Hot In Herre,” Busta Rhymes for “Pass The Courvoisier Part 2,” Snoop Dogg for “Drop it like its Hot,” and DJ Diplo for “Aerosol Can.”

Beyonce freaked everyone out when she appeared on stage for her sister Solange’s set on Saturday night, even though she didn’t sing. That same night, Jay Z rapped alongside his former nemesis Nas for a few songs.

OK, enough with the music. Now, it’s time for what Coachella is also known for — straight-up gossip. Hilary Duff showed up at the music festival with her estranged husband Mike Comrie on Friday. Meanwhile, Joe Jonas was seen canoodling with current girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler (that name —please hold me) all weekend, and Selena Gomez was spotted with her new besties, Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

Below is the full OutKast performance, but you can also check out kickass full performances from Lorde, Future Islands, Girl Talk and more.
