Tupac Shakur Coachella
Coachella is a time and place for all sorts of desert wackiness to go down—especially with Snoop Dogg in attendance (just check out his smoke-able book that was released at the fest).  That said, one moment during the headlining Dr. Dre and Snoop performance on Sunday night crossed them realm from wacky and dovetailed into just plain strange, if not tacky and/or kind of offensive.
