Kanye West was left “depressed” by Glastonbury 2015 error

Yeezy is talking to Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 tonight (August 1st)
Kanye loves a good chinwag – you may have noticed – so expect gold when a new interview with Mr West is broadcast on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show this evening.

During the chat, Kanye reveals he was “depressed” after messing up and forgetting the words to Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ during his Glastonbury headline set in 2015.

“It was incredible,” he revealed. “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.

“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.”

The full interview is broadcast tonight (August 1st) on BBC Radio 1 between 7pm and 9pm.
