Kanye to play Glastonbury but not everyone is happy about it

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

Anti-Kanye West petition launched following confirmation of rapper's Glasto headline slot

From SheKnows UK
Kanye West has been confirmed as the headline act on the Saturday night of this year's Glastonbury festival but there's already a petition to oppose his slot on the Pyramid Stage.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis and the rapper himself both shared their excitement on Twitter but clearly not everybody feels the same:

So far 3,433 people have signed the "Cancel Kanye West's headline slot and get a rock band" petition, which reads: "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!"

Somehow we don't think any petition will prevent this from happening. Brace yourselves for the June 2015 leg of the Kanye West/Kim Kardashian world takeover. Wonder if she'll wear wellies?
