So if you're a Beyoncé fan, today sucked.
It was announced that the singer will not perform at the 2017 Coachella music festival in April after all, per doctor's orders. Beyoncé revealed on Feb. 1 she is pregnant with twins, a month after it was announced she was set to headline Coachella. It is speculated that she is in her second trimester at least.
Now, while we would never want anything to compromise the singer's health, and while we get that performing in the Southern California desert in the 80-degree heat while carrying even one child would likely be torture, this. Just. Sucks.
Scores of fans bought Coachella tickets just to see Beyoncé perform. She was scheduled to be a headlining act during both of the festival's weekends.

So to those disappointed fans, we offer five ways to cope with her Coachella cancellation:
1. Remember: What's One More Year? While Beyoncé has canceled her performances at the 2017 event, she will take the stage as a Coachella headliner in 2018.
It's cool, Beyoncé giving us time to get our money together for next year's Coachella ??— lil baby?? (@shontiara_x0) February 23, 2017
Beyoncé will be headlining for Coachella in 2018! Let me save dat money now!— Kaiyla Ross (@_kahluh) February 23, 2017
Beyoncé being moved to headline 2018 Coachella is a blessing because now I can get on a payment plan for a ticket ??????.— LaDarian (@theDarian_) February 23, 2017
2. Keep Your Coachella Tickets and Go Anyway: Do you really want to miss headliners Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar, plus the likes of Lorde, New Order, Justice, The XX, Travis Scott, Bon Iver, Future, Gucci Mane and DJ Khaled? Oh, you do? Okay, moving on...

3. Sell Your Coachella Tickets: ...and buy yourself a fabulous outfit. Or two. You may feel like crap, but shopping makes things a little better. And you'll look good.
4. Take This Fan's Advice:
I wanted to go to Coachella for my birthday (just to see Beyoncé) but I've been to plenty of her concerts, I wanna take my son to Disneyland— Tom From Myspace (@theefakemvp) January 17, 2017
One of the employees guiding traffic at Disneyland says "Go like Beyoncé, to the left, to the left" ??— Rudee (@ssJediKnight) February 3, 2017
I'm going to coachella, Disneyland, universal, and Beyonce all in one week. I don't know how to handle this— Bre (@Breezy_C77) April 12, 2016
If you live out-of-state, there's no reason to cancel your plane tickets. There's plenty to do in Southern California.
5. Watch Beyoncé 2017 Grammys Performance Again: You know, you probably haven't watched her incredible set enough. You likely need to watch it again, just to cope with this loss.
