You can’t front on self-awareness. While performing in London at the 02 Arena for a homecoming residence, Adele announced she’d headline the Saturday installment of this summer’s Glastonbury festival in Pilton, England. She wasted no time shooting down the most common source of fuel for her detractor’s: boredom.
“To the people who say I am too boring to headline,” she began, “You’re more fucking boring for moaning about me headlining.” She has a point.
This appearance at the historic festival will be her first. After watching Kanye West’s set, she said the scope of the event was overwhelming. Her attitude has evidently shifted since, so it’ll be interesting to see how she handles the novel environment.
Adele will take over the Pyramid Stage June 25. Coldplay and Muse will also headline.
