Tim Westwood of 1Xtra interviewed Jay-Z backstage at Glastonbury 2008 over the weekend, where they spoke about the controversy surrounding Jay headlining the music festival. “Sometimes remarks are made out of ignorance,” Jay said of Oasis singer Noel Gallagher’s complaints. “If Noel Gallagher had seen me performed and he said that, I’d understand. That’s a personal opinion, and I can’t have no bearing on how he feels. It’s just personal taste. But he’s never seen me perform, I’m sure, or else he wouldn’t say that. We’ll see what happens after tonight though.” He added, “For the most part, everybody’s ready. I thought it would be the old guard vs. the new guard. But it’s really not like that. Right now, every single person I’ve seen has been very excited about the show.” Watch the interview below.
