Kanye West got a small taste of his own medicine last night (27 June) when comedian Lee Nelson invaded the stage during his Glastonbury headline set, before being wrestled off by security.

West had just begun performing one of his best songs of recent years, 'Black Skinhead', when Nelson - who is the comedy alter-ego of Simon Brodkin - ran onstage holding a microphone and wearing a 'Leezus' t-shirt. After spotting Nelson behind him, West stopped rapping and threw his arms up in confusion/frustration.

A security guard promptly followed Nelson onto the stage and firmly escorted him away, before West said simply, "Start over" and began the song again.

The comedian's escapade was met with a mixed reaction, to say the least.

West was one of the festival's most controversial headliners of all time (OF ALL TIME), and his 90-minute set was met with a mixed reaction.
