Kanye West can't get enough of the UK right now. After debuting "All Day" at the Brit Awards and performing a surprise show in London, 'Ye has been announced as the Saturday headliner for the 2015 Glastonbury Festival. Foo Fighters will headline Friday, and the Sunday headliner has yet to be announced. After all, Glastonbury is known for its diversity of acts—and a lot of people are very happy about this. But as always, someone had to spoil the fun with a petition to cancel Ye's headlining slot and replace him with a rock band instead.
Here's their reasoning:
Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world. We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.
Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music....he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving!
Lets prevent this musical injustice now!
Over 10,000 people have signed the petition so far and plenty have shared their opinions in the comment section, as well:
But perhaps people have forgotten that this isn't the first time a rapper's taken to the Pyramid Stage? Who can forget The Guardian's headline when Noel Gallagher had some choice words for Jay Z back in 2008:
As you can see, we've been here before. Luckily Michael Eavis, who runs Glastonbury, fully supports Ye as a headliner choice.
