Following in the footsteps of her husband, rapper Jay-Z, Beyonce is reportedly in talks with Glastonbury officials to headline next year’s festival! The R&B/Pop superstar is said to currently be in negotiations with the festival’s organizer Michael Eavis, according to the UK’s Daily Star.
Jay-Z’s headlining performance at the British festival back in 2008 was met with controversy initially, but in the end everything worked out. A source said:
“After all the furore over Jay-Z playing Glasto, it went off brilliantly and he had a wonderful time. Beyoncé was, of course, in the wings soaking up the atmosphere and told everyone how happy she was at Worthy Farm. Getting her to perform in her own right seems the ideal next step.”
Meanwhile, the Queen of Pop is supposedly gearing up for the release of the debut single from her next album. Just a few weeks ago, one of the producers working on the project hinted via Twitter that her new single would be due within the next month. So we’ll see!!
