LATEST: Rapper JAY-Z is ecstatic with the way his performance was received by revellers at English music festival Glastonbury - branding the experience "amazing".
Carter prompted a media furore after it was announced he would headline the event at the festival Pyramid Stage - prompting rocker Noel Gallagher to say: "I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong. Jay-Z's got no chance."
But the negative press he received spurred the hip-hop mogul on to wow the crowd - and he's proud of his on-stage achievements.
He tells MTV News, "It was a historic night for Glastonbury and for myself (as) it's the first time a hip-hop act had headlined."
And the star used Gallagher's hit track Wonderwall to open his Saturday night (28Jun08) set, because he knew the mainly British audience would understand the irony behind the decision.
He says, "That's my sense of humour. I have a sense of humour like a Brit so I thought people would appreciate that. Noel Gallagher was one of the biggest detractors so I figured that was a cool way to start the show.
"I play that song (Wonderwall) a lot at my restaurant on Friday nights - after we've had a few drinks it works really well. That's how I knew it so well."
And when asked if he would play the festival again, the rapper adds, "Of course. It was incredible. I even had wellies in the car but I didn't need them!"
