Pete already mentioned this in the comments to our previous speculation but I think this deserves a post of it’s own just in case you missed it: Jay-Z definitely confirmed to headline Glastonbury this year.

Says Mr Eavis: “He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that’s a big pull for them,” he said.

“It’s not like the traditional one we do, like Radiohead, Coldplay and Muse and Oasis.”

I dunno, I hear that being a Glastonbury headliner brings LOADS of problems! Like, now Jay-Z will have to worry about Nas giving him hash cookies before his normal cookies before he goes on stage and he’ll end up giggling his way through all the sweary bits!

Note how I subtly avoid mentioning the Neil Diamond issue… pah Anne Diamond would be better… and she no doubt needs the cash far more than rub old Neil.
