Selena Gomez has stayed out of the public eye for much of the last year, choosing to focus on self-care as she recovers from physical and mental health challenges.
But on the first day of Coachella 2019, Gomez was triumphant as she made an unscheduled appearance on-stage during DJ Snake’s set with Cardi B and Ozuna.
Footage shared on social media shows a radiant Gomez singing along to Taki Taki in a crisp white pant suit, making the festival crowd go wild.

Hailey Baldwin was spotted in the crowd at the festival in the California desert, it’s unclear if husband Justin Bieber, Selena’s former long-time boyfriend, is also there.
In January, Gomez addressed her absence from public life on Instagram, writing:
“Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead.”
You got this, Gomez.
