The alternate title for this post is “Coachella Be Crazy” because things are insane in the desert. As always, Hot Topics is your best burst of pop culture for the day. Today’s post includes stories on the Drake/Madonna kiss, Justin Bieber being put in a chokehold, and Robert Pattinson dancing like no one is watching. (But people were watching, obviously.)
So, it looks like Drake wasn’t really disgusted with his kiss from Madonna. Not only does Drake refer to the pop legend with her royal title on an Instagram post but he also thanks her for the experience.
Take lessons from Drake on how to treat a true queen.
Oh, Justin Bieber. What are we going to do with you?
The singer was reportedly kicked out of Coachella, which I didn’t know was possible. I saw a video of a guy slinking around on his stomach like a caterpillar, running into strangers and freaking everyone out, and he was not asked to leave.
The Daily Beast has the best explanation (because of the snark in it, of course):
According to the gossip gurus at TMZ, Bieber and his entourage were playing by the rules before things escalated out of control. They were trying to access the artist’s entrance at Drake’s performance, where they were invited and had the proper wristbands to gain entry. Security told them, however, that the area was at capacity and they’d have to watch [Madonna and Drake perform] along with the dusty plebeians.
This rightfully horrified Bieber, who said that if he watched the show with the crowd he’d be bombarded by fans. Security must not have watched the Comedy Central Roast because they were not sympathetic to Bieber’s plight. (They were not aware that the grace of god was on his side.)
In any case, they told him to bugger off. He stood his ground, and was eventually found by a Coachella staffer who promised to take him into the private area. But as he was being led away, security came up from behind and placed him in a chokehold, naturally starting a fight with his security. Bieber was ordered to leave, and sources tell TMZ that he departed voluntarily.
Here’s grainy video of him being carted away.
To see Darren Criss in Hedwig and the Angry Inch is all I’ve ever wanted in life, but I can’t get to New York this summer.
Broadway, why don’t you move on down to the south? Haven’t you had enough of Manhattan?

Kimora Lee Simmons just welcomed her fourth child!
To the people on Facebook who I saw call her a “THOT” when she announced her pregnancy, take a long walk off a short bridge.
She’s a lot of things, like a mother, businesswoman and former supermodel, but a “THOT” isn’t one of them. No woman fits that title, so stop your slut-shaming.
I’m off my soapbox now. Congrats, Kimora!
Since the week’s half over, I’m going to dance like Robert Pattinson did at the Drake concert.
He’s somehow controlled but also flailing. Also, I’m still kind of in love with him.
