Excuse Me……

life on the edge of cool

Beyoncé hotpants and Glastonbury

The hoped-for duet with Jay-Z might not have happened – but Beyoncé blew most of the doubters out of the water last night with her Bootylicious performance to close the Glastonbury Festival last night.
The star was watched by her rapper husband and friend Gwyneth Paltrow as well as 170,000 people on Worthy Farm in Somerset as she tore through an impressive hour and a half set.
Wearing just black hotpants and a gold belted jacket with her hair blowing curly and free in the evening breeze, at times, she appeared overcome with emotion at the reception she was given.

Playing a greatest hits set of mostly her own and Destiny’s Child tunes, she also covered tracks including Etta James’s At Last, Kings Of Leon’s Sex On Fire and Alanis Morrisette’s You Oughta Know.
Bizarrely, she also duetted with Tricky for song Baby Boy, but the Bristol-born rapper looked rather uncomfortable up there with her on the Pyramid Stage.

However, she kept fans happy, kicked off with a firework-punctuated Crazy In Love.
She seemed thrilled to be there, declaring: ‘You are witnessing my dream! Thankyou for having me and my band tonight, I always wanted to be a rock star and tonight we are all rock stars.’
She also included tracks including Single Ladies – which of course she did the dance to, in her sparkly black high heeled ankle boots – If I Were A Boy, Independent Women, Bootylicious and Survivor as well as new single Who Run The World (Girls) before closing with an anthemic Halo.
