Kanye West continues to show the United Kingdom love. 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. The Foo Fighters will headline Friday, and the Sunday headliner has yet to be announced. 

Jay Z sparked controversy back in 2008 when he became the first rapper to headline the festival. Oasis' Noel Gallagher criticized Hov for breaking the festival's tradition of "guitar music." Jay Z responded by opening up his set with "Wonderwall" while pretending to play the guitar and on "Jockin' Jay Z" with the line "The bloke from Oasis said I couldn't play guitar/somebody should have told him I'm a fucking rock star."

Should someone criticize Kanye's Glastonbury booking we can't imagine he'd be silent.
