Kanye West has a pretty healthy ego but even he could be forgiven for feeling a little bit insecure over the backlash following the news that he would headline at Glastonbury Festival this year – and while the petition to change that has now reached 90,000 online signatures, there is one girl who thinks he more than deserves his place there.
We are thrilled to let you know we have the one and only Kanye West headlining Saturday night on the Pyramid stage!

Emily Eavis, who is a festival booker, took to her blog on The Guardian website and made it very clear she felt West’s inclusion at the famous festival was something to be celebrated and people shout do a little bit less criticizing and a little bit more appreciating the musical genius – or so he likes to think.
Both Emily and her dad have thrown their full support behind Kanye and claimed:
‘We think the story this year should not be: ‘Why is Kanye coming?’ but: ‘How amazing is it that Kanye is coming?’
Given the petition is now taking on a life of its own, we don’t think her sentiments will be that successful but Kanye will probably appreciate them at the very least.
