Despite the uproar surrounding Kanye West’s headlining set at this year’s Glastonbury, the Chicago rapper did perform at the festival’s Pyramid stage last night (June 27).
Not long into his set, British comedian Lee Nelson interrupted Kanye’s performance during the rapper’s rendition of “Black Skinhead.” Despite attempts to carry on, Yeezy halted the performance until Nelson was removed from the stage. He then restarted the Yeezus cut and continued.
Not long after the incident had happened, Lee Nelson took to Twitter to explain his reasoning behind the disruption. The comedian claims that he did it for Taylor Swift as a nod to Kanye West’s interruption of her VMA acceptance speech for Best Female Video in 2009.
Some people were saying Kanye shouldn't headline Glastonbury so I thought I'd give him a hand. pic.twitter.com/7KFk2kgjsM
