The performance marks Gomez’s first appearance on stage since she sought mental health treatment last year following a few hospital stays. The singer, who has lupus, revealed last year that she’d undergone a kidney transplant as a result of her diagnosis. The appearance is also her first as a performer at the desert festival.
Cardi B posted a photo of the pair along with DJ Snake on her Instagram story, captioning it, “Coachella and I love them.”
Gomez will appear later this year in Jim Jarmusch’s “The Dead Don’t Die,” which will open Cannes in May, and is slated to voice a role in Universal’s “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle” alongside Robert Downey Jr.

It was what I needed to do for my overall health.”
