The 2012 Coachella Music Festival is in full swing this weekend in Indio, CA, and by yesterday afternoon, there were quite a few famous faces spotted out and about the various, incredible music acts all over the grounds!
Ch-ch-check out some of the celebrities in attendance this year, including Lindsay Lohan and many more (above and below)!
Looks like it's a bit chilly and rainy this year, but hey!
Small price to pay for an incredible experience - and such RAD music!
Dohn High School in Cincinnatti is pulling out all the stops to get their kids to school.
The attendence and graduation rates for the school are abysmal. Last year only 14 percent of students graduated and most of the students are very poor.
The $40,000 incentive program rewards seniors with $25 Visa gift cards for attending class (on time) and staying out of trouble. Underclassmen get $10 gift cards. Good students also receive $5 in a savings account.
School CEO Ken Furrier brushes criticism aside, believing he and his staff are on the right track:
Our student population is 90 percent poverty. Money is important to them. We can’t teach them if they’re not here.
I think the thing that many parents have to realize is that these kids arev ery poor. They don’t have all the benefits suburban kids have.
The new program has 15 percent spike in attendence but is still classified as an "emergency school."
Do U think this program is a good idea?
After all the goodbyes have been said, Whitney Houston will be laid to rest on Sunday.
She will be buried in a plot adjacent to her late father, John Russell Houston, who died in 2003, at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ.
All of this is happening just one day after Houston's funeral service at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, where Houston grew up singing as a little girl.
Rest in peace, Whitney!

We're glad to hear that they were able to put their differences aside for the sake of this.
Although several of Whitney Houston's family members were opposed to having Bobby Brown at her funeral tomorrow in New Jersey, as many believe him to be responsible for the icon's descent into substance abuse, they've formally invited him to attend at the last minute!
A source explains:
Chris Brown is coming back to the Grammy Awards!
The singer is nominated for Best R&B album, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song, but he hasn't made an appearance at the awards ceremony since he was arrested the night before in 2009, when he viciously assaulted his then-girlfriend, Rihanna!
