Watch Kanye West Prove He’s A Rockstar w/ Epic Glastonbury Performance [Full Video]
Kanye West just silenced all his critics.
I’ve seen Yeezy live once before – at Bonnaroo last year. His set ended basically 30 minutes early and with 80,000 boos as just about the entire crowd walked off, including our group. He just didn’t fully get the surreal vibe there it seemed like. I was really shocked because I was expecting him to be a true rockstar on stage, but was seriously disappointed. Therefore, I wasn’t totally surprised when I heard that nearly 150,000 people signed a petition to ban him from headlining Glastonbury music festival that happened this weekend.
He played everything from Yeezus to Watch The Throne to his new hit “All Day” from forthcoming album SWISH, and even some really old school jams too, including an encore of “Gold Digger” form Late Registration and “All Falls Down” from The College Dropout. You can watch the full set at the bottom of the post.
There were of course… a few instances throughout his set that stood out.
1) Kanye West covered “Bohemian Rhapsody” for a couple of minutes towards the end of his set.
2) And then there was comedian Lee Nelson jumping on stage and Kanye-ing Kanye with an interruption during his “Black Skinhead” performance.

3) THIS HAPPENED (yes, that’s Kim K blowing Ray J on a flag):
4) But perhaps the weirdest thing that’s worth mentioning… is BBC’s failed attempt at subtitles:
