Somebody get this man a Berghaus jacket! Whiney British grime artist Wiley has launched a Twitter tirade against Glastonbury Festival, the organisers, his manager, and Britain's meteorological conditions.
Seems like someone's having a bad day: rapper Wiley's spit his dummy and begged to be taken off the line-up for the most prestigious festival in the world, Glastonbury. He tweeted organiser Emily Eavis with "please can u take me off the line up I beg ya ." and then the festival with: "tell Michael eavis I dont wanna play please maybe he has the power to throw me off the line up ."
Wiley: Is He Ranting Or Singing?
Seems like the weather is what's sticking in the 'Heatwave' rapper's craw: "Soon as I land ...Rain ffs, " and "Festivals in nice hot places are sick not festivals p*ssing it down with rain ever year," adding "...f*ck a rainy festival on the West Country tbh.." As a stage performer, Wiley wouldn't even have had to sing in the rain (which is a glorious feeling, apparently) and could be ferried around in a little jeep if he wanted. Regardless of the scores of performers who would give their right arm to be invited to play at Glastonbury, 34 year-old Wiley showed he just wasn't going to 'Roll Deep' in the mud and get stuck in with the revellers. Refusing to man up and don an all-weather waterproof/fleece combo he sent out a long tirade of tweets, most of which have now been deleted.
Wiley's Ranty Tweets Have Mostly Been Deleted Now But It Seems He's Left The Festival.
The stubborn star was due to take to the stage for a one-hour DJ set in the Sonic tent tomorrow (June 29) between 4.30pm and 5.30pm, with Wiley initially conceding "Stop moaning anyway cos I am playing ok .....Seccle..." but now it seems he's well and truly given up and left "Ya know what... en route to heathrow realtalk...lol ...." with the sound advice to those brave enough to withstand the elements: "Make sure you go see the Rolling Stones tho ..."
I don't have to play there ...God knows and I know ...all this moaning means nothing to neither me or god ...lol ...— Wiley (@WileyUpdates) June 28, 2013
Will he? Won't he? Does anyone care any longer? And to think, he'd have had access to nice exclusive performer toilets instead of the projectile vomit-inducing toilets every paying punter has to put up with. Don't expect an invite next year, Wiles!
Did Wiley Bail On Glasto?
