Well, this is awkward.

While Lady GaGa fans are surely celebrating the news that Mother Monster is now headlining Coachella, they should know this booking almost didn't happen. As you may recall, Beyoncé was initially slated to headline the popular music festival but had to drop out due to her pregnancy.

Thankfully, it didn't take too long for those in charge of the festival to find Queen Bey's replacement. In fact, after the Million Reasons singer SLAYED her performance at the Super Bowl, GaGa seemed like the obvious singer to take over for the pregnant A-lister. Which is why we're shocked to report that the industry vet was the FIFTH artist organizers asked to headline. Ouch.

Reportedly, the festival reached out to Adele, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, and Nine Inch Nails before they asked the American Horror Story alum.

We get the first three, but Nine Inch Nails in place of Bey?? No way.

Nonetheless, we're sure the John Wayne performer is happy the others said no — especially since she has a world tour to promote.

And the hitmaker seems pretty pumped to hit the Coachella stage, as she recently posted on Instagram:

What do YOU think? Are you happy GaGa got the gig or do you wish one of the other artists said yes??
