'We have to respect each other' says the Glastonbury headliner
Noel Gallagher said Jay-Z and hip-hop was wrong for Glastonbury last month, adding, “I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance”.
The rapper has hit back at the singer/guitarist by backing up his genre, and calling for respect between those who make different types of music.
According to The Sun Jay-Z said: “We don’t play guitars, Noel, but hip-hop has put in its work like any other form of music. This headline show is just a natural progression. Rap music is still evolving.
“We have to respect each others’ genre of music and move forward.”
Jay-Z went on to say that he was looking forward to his headline slot at Glastonbury on June 28, despite the controversy surrounding it. “I’ve never ever had a show that’s caused this much of a stir so I’m really looking forward to it,” he said.
“I’ve never been involved in anything this controversial,” he added. “What’s the big deal about doing a show? I guess it’s heritage and people hold that dear to their heart and see it one way but that’s how the world is.”
