The comments were made during the rapper's Glastonbury headline set
The Chicago star performed a nearly two hour set on the Pyramid Stage, playing tracks from throughout his career as well as a short cover of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
Although the likes of both Paul McCartney and Rihanna had been suggested as possible guests, Vernon was revealed to be providing backing vocals when smoke cleared during ‘Lost In In The World’ and ‘Can’t Hold My Liquor’. Vernon, dressed in black t-shirt and baseball cap with headphones on, was introduced by West as “one of the baddest white boys on the planet.”
Vernon has collaborated with West several times in the past, also appearing on the tracks ‘Monster’, ‘I Am A God’ and ‘I’m In It’. ‘Lost In The World’ is based on Bon Iver’s 2009 song ‘Woods’.
Speaking about ‘Lost In The World’, West added: “When I was working on [2010 album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’] I was trying to explain to this girl how much I loved her. I wrote her an email that said “You’re my heaven, you’re my hell” and she ended up being my wife.” Referencing Kim Kardashian he added “She’s here tonight,” to huge cheers.
West ended his show by proclaiming himself the “greatest living rock star in the world.”
