For the eighth year in a row, YouTube will give us exclusive access to Coachella. Starting this Friday, you can stream the first weekend of concerts, featuring performances by Beyonce and Cardi B and The Weeknd. YouTube will offer four live-stream feeds, showcasing different artists simultaneously. You can also create a personalized viewing schedule with the live acts you want to see. When the act you want to watch performs, the live stream will automatically shift over to that show. There’s also going to be video-on-demand featuring some of the weekend’s highlights. Google Home is also teaming up with Coachella for an exclusive experience. You can say, “Hey Google, talk to Coachella,” and you’ll have access to music and interviews and trivia and everything Coachella. And even though Coachella takes place over two weekends, YouTube will only stream the first weekend, which is this weekend.
Things got really scary for Floyd Mayweather and his entourage early Monday morning. Floyd had just left the Medusa nightclub in Atlanta when a car pulled up and fired shots at the lead car in Floyd’s 3-car entourage. According to TMZ, Floyd’s bodyguard was struck in the leg, and as the driver of that car tried to speed away, the shooter’s car gave chase! Floyd’s driver was finally able to shake the shooter’s car and drove straight to the hospital. The bodyguard was treated and released. Police are still looking for the gunman and they want to interview Floyd as soon as possible so they can try to figure out a motive.
