What entourage? Kanye West is practically taking over Glastonbury for his headline slot
What entourage? Kanye West is practically taking over Glastonbury for his headline slot

It's well known that Kanye West is one of the biggest egomaniac's ever to walk this earth, but the Glastonbury headliner's behaviour has properly hacked off some of the other bands playing the festival.

The US rapper flew to Worthy Farm by helicopter with his reality TV star wife Kim Kardashian earlier today and is bringing an entourage so huge that other acts' guestlists have had to be cut to make space for his hoardes of invitees.

Felix White of indie rock group The Maccabees, who perform on the Other Stage later this evening, told the BBC that band members were allowed "only one guest each this time" as opposed to previous years.

"I've not got that many other friends who want to come but I'm just making a point!" he said. "We were told that this viewing platform's been set up just for Kanye so he's got hundreds and hundreds of guests apparently."

It's just the power of Yeezus, people. Kanye has compared himself to everyone from Steve Jobs to Picasso, Shakespeare to Willy Wonka and most recently Leonardo da Vinci. Oh and God, yes, he's been there and put himself on the same level of superstardom as God before. Roll with it.
