Kanye West’s headlining performance at Glastonbury 2015 has social media ablaze tonight.
According to Twitter, the recently declared “World’s Most Stylish Man” absolutely killed it, live from the Pyramid Stage – complete with a heckler rushing the stage during Yeezy’s performance of “Black Skinhead” (shown below).
It turns out, that troll was none other than English comedian Simon Brodkin, better known as Lee Nelson. Despite the small hiccup, Yeezy’s performance proved to be a success, even with elitist dickheads who decided to launch a failed petition for the festival to cancel his appearance and replace him with a “rock act.”
Déjà vu, right? Remember at Glastonbury 2008, when Noel Gallagher of Oasis criticized the festival organizers for having JAY Z headline? And Hov being Hov fired back by performing “Wonderwall/99 Problems.” Good times.
Anyway, Ye covered Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” at times struggling with some of the lyrics. He would have been better off covering “We Are The Champions.”
