It’s definitely been a minute since we’ve seen Selena Gomez perform live. In fact, it’s been about a year. But at this year’s Coachella, the pop star surprised fans by hitting the stage with none other than DJ Snake, Cardi B and Ozuna to perform their hit song, “Taki Taki.”
Yup! The “Back To You” songstress officially made her return to the stage during DJ Snake’s set at the Indio, California festival on Friday, April 12. She wore an all-white ensemble, and of course, fans were ecstatic to see her smiling and performing again — especially since she’s had a notoriously rough year.
This performance was Sel’s first since joining Taylor Swift on stage at the Pasadena, California stop of her Reputation Stadium Tour in May 2018. Then, in October 2018, the 26-year-old checked herself into rehab. Although she never addressed the reason why, the singer has been extremely open about her struggles with anxiety and depression in the past, so fans suspected that was the main cause. Rumors also swirled that her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s marriage to Hailey Baldwin had something to do with it, particularly because earlier in 2018, Jelena seemed to have been thriving for a brief period of time.
Regardless of what she’s been through this past year, though, what’s important is that the “Hands to Myself” singer is back, and the Coachella performance went off without a hitch. Don’t believe us? We’ve got the pics to prove it.
