After he invaded the stage during Kanye West’s Glastonbury performance, Lee Nelson has claimed he did it for Taylor Swift.
The comedian, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, stormed the stage during Kanye’s song ‘Black Skinhead’, but was quickly escorted off by security.
And Nelson has now claimed it was payback for Kanye’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards six years ago.

In 2009, Taylor was accepting the award for best female video when Kanye stormed the stage to say Beyonce should have won instead. He later apologised for the outburst.
So, there you go, Nelson did it for Taylor. Although we expect the free publicity may have been a factor too…
