While the news isn't entirely surprising — by most estimates, she'll be at least halfway through her pregnancy by the time the Indio, California fest kicks off. (She was scheduled to headline the two Saturdays of the event, April 15 and 22.) There's also the minor detail that she's carrying twins. And we all know Queen B isn't one to half-ass anything. When's the last time you saw her give a low-key performance that didn't include vigorous dancing? She wasn't about to sit on a stool and coo gently.
Anyhow, understandably, people are quite upset. Many are furiously demanding refunds. A great number of fans are depressed. Others seem to be in total disbelief. We can always count on Twitter for hilarious (intentionally or not) reactions to bombshell news items like this. And the GIFs are just everything.
