It is really Tom.
i get that generating buzz in the hollywood tabloids is cool and everything but this is starting to make the festival look like a joke.

ran into joe from alt j walking out of the main stage VIP section. he was wearing a doom shirt and i saw that first and was going to compliment whoever it was. got close, looked up, oh hey! like 1-2 hours before their set.
Why is KS wearing an artist wristband?
I also wonder who invites someone like Lohan to the festival.
When R. Kelly came out with Phoenix I was looking around and I saw a super hot model standing right by me and then looked next to her and saw some Indian dude and then I looked again and realized it was Aziz Ansari lol. Told my friends and then one of my friends said we should follow him when he leaves and then Aziz left, he was probably afraid of us haha. Kind of funny, because Aziz has a whole standup bit about R. Kelly too ha.
I'm not sure if this counts as a celebrity, but, while waiting for OMD I started talking to this guy, just the general bs, where you from, who'd you see, etc. Come to find out that he's a writer for How I met your Mother. I asked him if he was the one that wrote "Naked Man" and he said no, but that was his story. I have a pic with him, but I won't post it since he said that he didn't tell his wife and son the story. So, I met the original "Naked Man."
martin solveig, lou adler, and the dudes from local natives in the vip viewing area for james blake. weekend 2.
I was constantly seeing Danny Masterson in the VIP at different sets throughout the weekend. Saw Harley from Epic Meal Time during 2chainz and Shaun White in the crowd during Wu Tang. Also saw Jared Leto walking through the crowd during RHCP, begging to be noticed. The guys from Tame Impala sharing a joint in the VIP during Grizzly Bear was a highlight too.
I don't know how you guys see & recognize all these people. In 9 Coachellas these are my only celebrity encounters:
2008 - Parked next to Hasselhoff
2011 - Saw Aziz Ansari in the crowd for DFA 1979 & Kesha looking diseased & glittery before Black Keys
2013 - Saw the singers from every indie band ever at Grinderman & the Make-Up.
Weekend 1, Friday, Mainstage for Yeah Yeah Yeahs. When everyone sitting on the grass waiting for the show to start and I turned around and asked the group of people behind me for a lighter. Turns out it was Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend. I only realized afterwards when my girlfriend told me who they were. And they had a lighter for me to borrow, which was nice of them.
I'll bet that had better stuff they could have shared.
I saw Selena Gomez last year. I told her she was awesome in "Spring Breakers" and she said, "I'm glad you liked it. I was the good girl."
Shaun White in VIP last year, he was behind me in line for pizza.
I saw pro surfer Dane Reynolds with his chick Napkin Apocalypse back in 2011. He was supposed to be at a major surf comp, but was clearly blowing it off for greener pastures. He's a very "Big Deal" in the surf community, but other than that I haven't seen anyone of note
I saw the girl who plays Maybe from Arrested Development in 2011 or 2012. She looked terrible.
I met ChloŽ Sevigny last year...
Ran into a few last year.
Selena Gomez- Casually walking from stage to stage in the same direction as me. Had quick convo, surprisingly nice and down to earth.
RiFF RAFF- The epitome of a tool. He was chasing Diplo all over the grounds.
Robert Delonge- Stood next to him in the crowd for Wu-Tang. He and his girlfriend are awesome.
