Kanye: 'My Glasto headline sent me into a depressed state'

Kanye West admitted in an interview with BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac yesterday that his headline slot at Glastonbury 2016 sent him into a depressed state.

A set that included moments like a shaky Queen cover and comedian Lee Nelson invading the stage at the start of 'Black Skinhead', forcing Kanye to start it again, it was certainly memorable. However, West chose to ignore the presence of the comedian.

He told BBC Radio One's Annie Mac: "It was incredible. I started off the show and I completely messed up the music. And me, as you can imagine by this phone call, I'm a bit of a perfectionist."

“So it really put me into a slightly depressed state, and it put me back in the position of when I was in high school and I got fired from my job, or when I played my music for R Kelly and he told me he was going to sign me, and then three months later I didn't have any money, I couldn't afford a haircut, I couldn't take my girlfriend to the movies and I'm still in my momma's bedroom, working on beats, and I was that close to being signed by R Kelly.

West added: "I don't usually get nervous, I prepare, I get fully prepared. When that music messed up in the beginning, it tapped into my nerves and when you're nervous or vulnerable, something special and something different can happen."
