Lindsay Lohan refuses to go to rehab until after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival near Palm Springs, Calif. The concert LiLo attends annually spans two weekends in April this year and features the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Vampire Weekend, and The Lumineers.
The VIP tents at Coachella overflow with celebrities each year, and photos from the concert tell the tale, year-in and year-out. From Emma Roberts wearing the nearly-naked “Coachella uniform” to Rihanna smoking pot on her bodyguard’s shoulders, and Katy Perry macking down with her man du jour, Coachella is a party, plain and simple. Celebs also get access to VIP gift lounges, where they can load up on free swag — and everyone knows LiLo loves her some free swag.
So, Coachella sounds like the just perfect place for a young lady who needs rehab, right? Lohan is scheduled to spend 90 days in a locked rehab facility as part of a plea deal that keeps her out of jail for lying to cops about her involvement in a car accident while on probation. But sources say LiLo’s concert plans were a major factor in the bargain. “Linds refused to sign off on any deal that would have prevented her from going to Coachella, period,” an insider tells Radar.
The report comes on the heels of news that Lohan’s rehab deal may fall apart anyway since there is no such lock-down facility in New York or California. Well, if Lindsay’s headed to jail, at least she’s planning one last blowout first. Coachella or bust! Here’s a look at some more of Lindsay’s past Coachella fashions, just for fun:
