As some of you probably already know, Noel from the group Oasis, had some harsh things to say about Jay-Z headlining this big show in the U.K., which is usually headlined by a rock act. The angry English dude basically blamed Jigga for the lack of ticket sales this year. It’s taken a while for Jay-Z to respond (probably to busy dissing ball players) but here’s what he had to say about the situation.
We donâ€™t play guitars, Noel, but hip-hop has put in its work like any other form of music. This headline show is just a natural progression. We just have to respect each otherâ€™s genre of music and move forward.
Iâ€™ve never ever had a show thatâ€™s caused this much of a stir so Iâ€™m really looking forward to it. Iâ€™ve never been involved in anything this controversial. Whatâ€™s the big deal about doing a show? I guess itâ€™s heritage and people hold that dear to their heart and see it one way but thatâ€™s how the world is. The world has to change. It just canâ€™t be one thing – and thatâ€™s the beautiful thing. Thatâ€™s why people feel so passionate about an event.
And the winner is…
