Coachella was going to be pretty queer this year. Frank Ocean was headlining, as the first queer male in history to headline the event. Pabllo Vittar would become the first drag performer on the lineup to perform their own music. Plus Orville Peck, Lil Nas X, Kim Petras, BROCKHAMPTON and more were on the schedule. Apparently, little did we know, that more was supposed to include Lady Gaga as she revealed in a new message posted to social media.
"First of all, I want to make sure everyone is staying safe and practicing social distancing," she wrote. "Please know that I'm thinking of all of you." Yes, Mother Monster, we are thinking of you too!.
"I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of tough deliberation, I've made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica," she continued. Chromatica was set to be Gaga's sixth studio album, scheduled to be released April 10th. "I will announce a new 2020 release date soon."
The cancellation is one of a slew for Gaga-related ventures. Her Vegas show has also been postponed, though her Chromatica Ball tour, for this summer, is still in place. And apparently, her Coachella set has been impacted.
"I had so many fun things planned for us to celebrate together," she wrote. "I had a secret Coachella set lined up, and a lot of other fun surprises, some of which I'm still planning to share with all of you very soon! Chromatica is still very much on the way and I can't wait."
The star did not share whether or not the Coachella set will still happen with the festival's new dates this fall. We have our fingers crossed!
