Coachella 2014 - Day 3
Aaron Paul

We already posted day 1 pictures and day 2 pictures of the first weekend of Coachella 2014, and a set of day 3 is HERE, but here's a separate set of pics of Arcade Fire's headlining set that day. We already talked about their set, including the fact that Blondie singer Debbie Harry joined them for a cover of her own band's "Heart of Glass" and stayed to sing backup on "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)." We also mentioned that Barack Obama bobbleheads and Pope Francis bobbleheads (which debuted in Austin) joined them, but what we didn't know is the actual person wearing the Pope Francis bobblehead was Aaron Paul, aka Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman, who was one of the many celebrities at the festival. That's a picture of Jesse with the Pope bobblehead above, via CoS, via Arcade Fire's manager.

More pictures of Arcade Fire's Coachella set below...

Coachella starts this weekend (April 11 - 13) and amongst the sold-out throngs are a few famous people too. Some because they party while seeing Outkast, Arcade Fire and/or Muse, and some because they're...paid to be there. The Daily News reports that corporations (not the festival itself) are paying huge amounts for celebrities to attend on their behalf (and flash their products). Among them: Glee star Lea Michele reportedly is getting $20,000 from Lacoste to wear its crocodile clothes, and Vanessa Hudgens will receive $15k from McDonalds (will she have to hold a shake the whole time?). Other celebs are, according to the Daily News' source, actively looking for similar deals, like Breaking Bad star music festival regular and Betty Who fan Aaron Paul who, according to the story, is asking for "$15,000 and at least 2 VIP passes" to the fest.

You can coordinate your own VIP experience from the comfort of your home as the first weekend streams on Coachella's YouTube page and the second weekend (April 18 - 20) will air on cable channel AXS TV.

Dance Bitch

Before literally riding off into the desert, Jesse Pinkman (via actor Aaron Paul) uttered his signature one-liner a final time, this time on a dance track. "Dance Bitch," a track produced by Tom Neville and Zen Freeman, featuring the voice of Paul, has become an unlikely underground sensation since its release on Rising Music following the end of "Breaking Bad."

More about the song in the new article in Billboard. The song below...
