Beyoncé Knowles may not be scheduled to perform this year at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, but the 15-year-old desert music spectacular has become an essential place to be seen for Hollywood and music biz celebrities so the “Queen Bee” showed up Saturday and put on a show of her own, with an Instagram post that screamed “Look at me!”
In the post, Beyoncé has apparently just stepped off a private jet and is flashing one if her famous legs on the the airport tarmac.
Here is the Instagram photo with which Beyoncé announced her arrival at the music festival, held every April at the Empire Polo Club in the desert town of Indio, about 130 miles southeast of Los Angeles.
“The ‘Crazy In Love’ hitmaker clutched a black fan-shaped purse in one hand and a bottle of something-that-looked-like-apple-juice-but-probably-wasn’t in the other as she struck her best Christ The Redeemer meets Michael Jackson pose,” wrote Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper describing the arrival of Beyoncé at the southern California airport.
Beyoncé also attended Coachella last year, where she delighted fans by jumping on stage to upstage her own sister, Solange, during a performance at the festival’s Gobi tent. But the sisters appeared to have rehearsed the performance of the tune “Losing You,” which was tightly choreographed.
As soon as the “Single Ladies” songstress posed the photo, her fans went wild — on Twitter.

But will fans just wandering around the desert resort actually be able to catch a glimpse of Beyoncé? That seems doubtful — as evidenced by the fact that she arrived in a private aircraft.
As far as could be determined, Beyoncé arrived at Coachella as a “single lady,” leaving husband Jay-Z behind somewhere, prepared to party it up bachelorette style.
