Across the pond, Kanye West’s performance at Glastonbury got crashed by a heckler while Taylor Swift’s UK show featured a surprise appearance from Serena Williams. Get the dish inside…
Kanye West had a weekend of highs and lows as he took his “Yeezus” set overseas to headline the Glastonbury Music Festival. Before Kanye hit the Pyramid Stage, his presence at the festival had already ruffled feathers.
The Daily Mail reports that 134k music lovers signed a petition to hve his headline act cancelled. GASP! Music snobs were apparently upset that hip-hop had taken over the main stage and pushed other genres (the whole point of the festival) to the background. Or it COULD have just been the choice of hip hop act–Kanye himself.
One music fan crashed Kanye West’s Pyramid stage performance! Luckily, security dragged him off stage, but Kanye was visibly annoyed. Shockingly, we’ve learned the stunt was actually premeditated as the heckler, comedian named Lee Nelson, tweeted this pic BEFORE the stunt.
Hmm….maybe celebrities should have their security teams scan social media before their clients hit the stage….just in case.
Kim Kardashian West, who’s pregnant with the couple’s second child, arrived with Kanye via helicopter Saturday afternoon. She enjoyed the concert performance from her own self-contained area near the stage in another super tight dress and heels. She tweeted, “Perfect shoes for Glastonbury! LOL (have my wellies in the car don’t worry).”
Kanye’s headline set was broadcast live on British television. Check out a few clips…
Country/Pop princess Taylor Swift headlined the British Summer Time festival with a special guest….Serena Williams!
The world’s #1 tennis player did an ole nasty catwalk victory strut as she surprised the audience. If you’re wondering why Serena is in the UK, she’s about to start the 2015 Wimbledon tourney. Earlier in the day, she was spotted at Tanner Street Park where she put on a tennis clinic for girls as part of the Nike Court Club. And she also “randomly” ran into her friend Kim K. in the London streets the day before.
Back on stage….Taylor’s milkshake brought several high profile girls to the yard. She and Serena were also joined by Martha Hunt, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne.
And Serena posed it up with her bestie Caroline Wozniaki and Karlie in the crowd. Fun times.
