Jay-Z shows up knuckle-draggerin' Brit pop

Favorite video of the moment is Jay-Z headlining at the Glastonbury Festival. Originally, some Neanderthals sniffed that a mere 'rapper' shouldn't head a rock fest but honestly... is Jizza just a rapper? The guy's a phenom who should headline anywhere he wants. And not just Aerosmith but the dozens of rock-rap bands who've stormed the charts in the last decade or so should have ideally put an end to such pathetic prejudices. After one of the Gallagher boys in Oasis lent his voice to the backwards cry-babies who don't want their rock fests 'soiled' by rap, JZ had a perfect response as you'll see above. It's a shame that the longer video version with him launching into "99 Problems" right after this has been taken down by YouTube.

My fave performance was Amy Winehouse. She brings so much more to the stage than just singing. Am I right? Then again I also like watching house fires.

Note to Noel: Jay-Z is what a star looks like.
