In an Instagram Stories update on Tuesday, Latto addressed the claims, saying she “never [P]hotoshopped a crowd.” As previously reported, Latto was among the artists who performed as part of the Sunday lineup of the 2023 edition of the festival’s first weekend.
“Never photoshopped a crowd lmao I expanded it so it would fit in my Instagram swipe without getting cut off but it was clearly [fucked] up so I didn’t end up using it & just posted the wrong version by accident on Twitter babes,” Latto wrote in an Instagram Stories update, as seen below.
Joining Latto on Sunday’s slate of Coachella performers were Frank Ocean, Björk, GloRilla, Kali Uchis, Rae Sremmurd, IDK, Willow, Jackson Wang, Pi’erre Bourne, and more. A few days removed from the first weekend of the annual festival, the bulk of news coverage surrounding this year’s event has centered on Friday’s last-minute return of the classic lineup of preeminent punk band blink-182 and Sunday’s long-awaited headlining set from the oft-elusive and artistically daring Ocean.
For Latto, the first weekend of Coachella arrived following her appearance alongside Yung Miami on the remix to Lola Brooke’s “Don’t Play With It” track. Revisit the collab’s official video here.
Latto’s Coachella performance also saw the rapper preview a new track that many speculated included diss shots aimed at Nicki Minaj.
