David Bowie to play Glastonbury? The bets are on.

By Stefano on June 26th, 2013

Everyone knows that The Rolling Stones are the main attraction at Glastonbury this weekend. However the internet has been awash with rumours that a certain other vintage pop star who is on the comeback trail, might play a secret set at the fest.

Yep William Hill is offering odds of 6/1 on David Bowie playing Glasto with him at 10/1 joining the Stones on stage.

“Every festival around the world this year have been plagued by rumours that Bowie will play a secret set and with odds of 6/1, it looks likely that he may wait for the biggest stage of all, Glastonbury, to do so,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

It couldn’t happen – could it?

Celeb Style: Jay-Z does Geek Chic 2 Months After Matt Damon

By Will Reid on July 3rd, 2008

jayz.jpgLast Friday, Jay-Z turned up on Jonathan Ross and as the guestlist was revealed, I was delighted to see good ol’ Jay-Z rocking the Geek-Chic look. But sadly for Mr. Z (can we call him that?) Matt Damon had tried the look over two months before. Usually an all-round innovator and owner of his own label, I have come to expect more of this man with those infamous 99 problems.

Okay, okay- maybe Im being slightly sarcastic but let’s be honest; that beige jacket is rather horrific. However, I’m liking the ‘Globe-trotter’ scarf tied into the loop of his jeans and with quotes like “home was like the cliché of rough…when I was nine I saw someone shot for the first time” and “my favourite is heartfelt music… I listen to Coldplay, 50 Cent, Kanye West,” what’s not to love?

Jay-Z’s Glastonbury performance gets the Liz Jones treatment

By admin on July 1st, 2008

Jay-Z took to the Pyramid Stage at this year’s Glastonbury wearing a plaid scarf, dark jeans, puffa and shades looking every inch like a piece of hip-hop royalty. Jay won over the crowd, opening with a hammed-up cover of Oasis’ Wonderwall and as he later told MTV Base it was his attempt to poke fun at the whole controversy that has surrounded this Glastonbury: “That’s my sense of humor,” Jay told MTV Base. “I have a sense of humor like a Brit, so I thought people would appreciate that. Noel Gallagher was one of the biggest detractors, so I figured that was a cool way to start the show.”


Liz Jones‘ Glastonbury review
of Jay-Z (I can hear Jones calling him Jay-Zed in my head) is just as funny but for entirely different reasons. See after the jump to continue reading and see Jay-Z’s performance at Glastonbury.
