The superstar was due to perform previous year but had to postpone because she was pregnant with her twins, Sir and Rumi. Last year, she canceled her set as a headliner at Coachella 2017 due to her pregnancy.
Page Six has learned that the superstar's publicist sent out an e-mail to news outlets Friday asking them not to publish fans' pictures of her hotly anticipated performance at Coachella-and to stick with the approved shots of Saturday's show instead.
"Coachella, thanks for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline", she said.
While Rihanna did not post any photos or videos of the performance, her good friend Melissa Forde, who we can assume was seated beside the singer, gave us a good idea of the very enviable view the two had. Beyonce has more time to blow all our minds again when she returns next week for the second week of Coachella - sorry, Beychella.
Celebrity reviews are pouring in after Beyonce tore it up with a full marching band, brought Destiny's Child back together, nailed a duet with hubby JAY-Z and had an incredible dance-off with sister, Solange Knowles - all in one performance.
The best surprise by far was definitely the Destiny's Child reunion.
Beyoncé acknowledged her historic and creatively impressive show as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined her onstage.
