Despite the fact it reaches 100 bajillion degrees in April, the Coachella Festival went on at full force in Palm Springs, California, last weekend. The three day event has become a magnet for celebrities and paparazzi. Last year Scarlett Johannsen sang with the Jesus and Mary Chain, and this year Sean Penn made an appearance while Shia LaBeouf soaked in the sun on the grass.
Penn took the stage at Coachella calling for volunteers to ride with him from Palm Springs to New Orleans to protest the war and build houses for the homeless.
"Um, hello, boss? Yes, I'm going to be out for the next week riding upon a bio-diesel bus with actor Sean Penn, building houses for the homeless. If you need me, I can be reached on my cell in New Orleans. Thanks!"
