After making history when she was announced as the first black woman to headline the famous festival, Beyonce announces her Coachella Cancellations.
The 22 time Grammy Award winning singer shocked fans today as she announced that she will be unable to perform at Coachella 2017. Following the advice of her doctors, the singer understandably made the announcement to her fans via her Facebook page: Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.’
In general, it’s safe for women to work while they’re pregnant, said Dr. Jonathan Schaffir, an obstetrician/gynecologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “Most women can continue to work right through the end of pregnancy,” Schaffir said
He further explained that even:
If a woman is otherwise healthy, and isn’t at higher risk for complications during pregnancy, she typically isn’t restricted in the types of activity she can do at her job,’ Schaffir said. Although pregnancy isn’t the right time to start a new, vigorous work or exercise regimen, if a woman is conditioned to do a particular job, then she can most likely continue to do the activities of that job.
Unfortunately for those fans who just wanted to see Beyonce will find it hard to be excited for the festival, some fans even took to twitter to showcase their frustration. ‘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.’
Despite this huge cancellation Coachella have announced that Beyonce will be performing in 2018 for the next festival, but they are yet to announce who will be the replacement headliner act for 2017.
