    Default Janelle Monae... "Coachella, meh."

    Janelle Monae says she didnít like the crowd at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

    The singer joined Outkast onstage for their much-hyped reunion at the festival last month.

    Critics say the show fell flat, but Monae blamed the crowd, saying she preferred performing with the hip-hop duo at the CounterPoint Music Festival in Georgia.

    ďI didnít like that Coachella audience,Ē she told Faster Louder.

    ďIím happy I got to CounterPoint [Music Festival] in Georgia, because those were real festival-goers, in my opinion.Ē

    Do you blame her? That crowd for Outkast's WK1 performance was pretty dead for one of that size.

    I would like to see the difference in set lists. Most people were just casual fans waiting to hear the "big" songs. If they had interspersed those big songs throughout the set, people would of been dancing more. But I do agree with her, casual fans waiting to hear the famous songs do not make for a great crowd/audience.

    the counterpoint setlist was the same as the weekend 2 setlist.

    She thought Coachella was fine enough last year during her own set, didn't she? She is too smart to not understand the difference a setlist makes.

    She was incredible at her own set. Can you blame her for thinking Coachella main stage should be a little more lively? I really hope she decides to come back. That girl deserves to headline. Now I feel like they won't bring her and she won't want to.

    I mean...she's basically saying the same thing we all say all the time. The crowd WAS shit. And there WAS a lot of 'fake VIP bullshit' going on. It won't surprise me if artists stop wanting to play.

    That crowd was an absolute joke, but that doesn't give Andre a pass for mailing in his performance weekend one.

    Some might say thay Janelle Monae is simply the wrong element.

    Really though, it was an incredibly underwhelming set save for the first 20 minutes or so. From BoB till Rosa Parks, I was really digging it. Even early on though, that crowd sucked.

    I think that it's not the crowd's responsibility to hype up the performer but vice versa (as I'm sure many people do). However, considering the massive amount of people who like huge amounts of differing music, is it the crowd's fault for not being hyped up for a reunion of OutKast Weekend 1, or is it OutKast's fault for the set list being so-so and Andre 3000 being nervous? Also, it's possible maybe they just chose the wrong festival to reunite at.

    They should have performed a few low key gigs prior to Coachella to work out the setlist, simple as that. It needed some fine tuning as evidenced by the much better received weekend 2 set.

    She performed great in Arizona back in January, and the crowd was mostly white, but enthusiastic. Several ladies came dressed in suits/tuxes.

    Future was really my only issue with the weekend one set. I am looking forward to seeing them again in August especially since they have their setlist and show locked down now.

    When Future took the stage did he even perform a single song?
    I was there and I can't recall anything involving him. Janelle I do remember...and she was garbage,
