The stage was set for Katy Perry to have a pretty awesome Coachella weekend, but things didn't exactly go according to plan.
In fact, they didn't even get there before things took a turn for the worse. The pop star and her pals were cruising along in the van and they were ALMOST there when their van decided it needed a nap.
Katy's pal Janelle Shirtcliff Instagrammed this photo, making light of the whole thing...probably figuring a little car trouble wouldn't ruin an otherwise awesome weekend.
A witness told Pret-a-Porter that they saw them "hoofing it" through the desert and Katy was a good sport about the whole thing, not appearing to be bothered by it at all.
When they finally arrived at the festival, Katy went to rest up for the events and this is the bed that was waiting for her. "#CANTChella," Katy captioned the pic.
The good news is that despite the fact that it got off to kind of a bad start, Katy and her friends seemed to still have a really good time.
Katy even ran into an old friend while she was there...
The good news is that Katy and her friends have another chance to have a perfect Coachella weekend if they decide to go back again this week.
