Coachella 2009: Lots of Celebrities Trying to Look Cool

The hardcores NOT in the VIP Lounge

The Hoff

I swear to God I never thought I’d have David Effing-Hasselhoff in my blog, but looky who got in. Check out those get-ups. Stragecically torn holes in the jeans, is that is camo jacket? You just know that chick he’s with spent thousands in Beverly Hills to get that hippy-chick look. “Oooooh, I think I’ll tie a knot in my skirt!” Yeeeeesh. Dumbasses.
Jake (I’m not GAY!) and
Reese (“It’s too hot to wear Spanx!”)
I’m positive my grandmother, Babe,
would’ve looked way hotter than
Dita Von Tisse.
Brown socks, sandals and a dress.
Oh, Chloe Sevigne.
Here we go. Coachella, the awesome weekend-long music festival in Indio, California (in the scorching desert!) was a huge success. What effing recession? Seems this year’s festival broke attendance records, which is awesome, if you ask me. I just have to laugh, though, at the mostly dorky “celebrities” who go to this thing and try desperately to “fit in”.
These are the performers you missed, if you were not at Coachella with the heat-index in the mid-thousands:
