Selena Gomez & Cardi B Surprise Coachella

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

Festivalgoers have had a pretty awesome start to Coachella this year. On Friday, April 12th, DJ Snake played a set when Cardi B and Selena Gomez made a surprise appearance. Along with Ozuna, the artists performed their song “Taki Taki,” making the entire crowd go wild. The epic performance even included actual glitter cannons making it truly a night to remember.


Selena Gomez has previously attended Coachella as a party-goer, but not as a performing artist. This year marked the first time she took to the Coachella stage and fans couldn’t have been happier. Cardi B performed at last year’s festival.

Selena kept her look carefree in an all-white suit with frilly lace sleeves. Her hair was kept long and wavy with just a small braid on the side of her head. Cardi B wore a floral vest and blue bodysuit, her hair blonde and straight. Basically, iconic.

Coachella has only just begun, and it’s off to a really great start. The schedule is packed with some impressive performances, like headlining act Ariana Grande. Festivalgoers have plenty of more performances to look forward to.
