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.
