HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tickets go on sale tomorrow for The Coachella Music Festival. Headliners for this year's massive event have been announced. Last year's no show...Beyonce....because she was pregnant.....is coming this year. Rapper Eminem will be making his first appearance at the festival. Other performers include the Weekend, Cardi B, Migos and more. The multi-day concert is set to run April 13-15 and again April 20-22.
Speaking of Cardi B....the #1 Trending video this morning on YouTube is from our own Bruno Mars....featuring Cardi B. It's the brand new video for the latest hit single from his 24k Magic release. He's not only in the video but he directs it as well. It's already generated over 2,179,000 views in less than 24 hours.
Actor Adam Driver who plays Kylo Ren is shirtless in a scene. Lots of memes immediately popped up online and started the #kylorenchallenge. Men and women wearing above waist high pants with their shirts off. We think singer John Mayer actually started the challenge.... and ended it in one fell swoop... by totally nailing it.
Laura Dern has been on O?ahu; as a matter of fact she posted up a picture of herself on Instagram. That in the background is Maunawili Falls. She?s not here for anything "Jurassic" related; Reel News Hawaii put up a #hawaiianvacation on their repost. Of course she has a little bit of the force with her; she was awesome in "The Last Jedi."
A fashion-first for makeup giant Sephora: Meet Taija Kerr. She's the company's FIRST Afro-Hawaiian campaign star! It's just the latest example of inclusivity in the beauty industry - and she's causing quite a stir. When the 23-year-old became the first Afro-Hawaiian woman to be featured in a major beauty campaign - she hoped to inspire people to broaden their definition of beauty. She's currently a makeup artist at Sephora - and was just named one of the 10 employees selected to represent the brand's holiday campaign. She tells Teen Vogue - quote - "I love the support that I'm getting from the people. But I just don't understand why it took this long." Congrats to her and what a beautiful accomplishment.
