MUSIC NEWS: Beyonce sets records at Glastonbury, GUSHES about finally feeling like a ROCKSTAR

Bey Week continues! 

Fresh off of breaking BBC2's record by drawing in 2.5 million viewers to their channel and headlining the Glastonbury festival, Beyonce is still floating from the high of her successful performance. She gushed,
"I want you all to know right now you're witnessing my dream. I always wanted to be a rock star and tonight we are all rock stars."
Her sentiments are inspiring as Beyonce is the first African American female to headline the Glastonbury Festival. For those who don't know (I had to Google search this ish myself bc all I remember is Hov performed in previous years), The Glastonbury festival began the day after Jimi Hendrix died, in 1970 and has featured headliners like U2, Stevie Wonder, Sinead O'Connor, Moby and hundreds of others. Over the years, it has grown into a weekend of diverse music, arts and overall fun for festival goers. The scale of entertainment is unmatched by anything else. There are roughly 50 stages and dozens of performances from all genres of music with the attendance numbers reaching the hundreds of thousands. For the past few years, the shows have been selling out  within the first few weeks of going on sale. 

Check out Bey's post performance interview below: 

She even brought Glastonbury to the BET Awards on Sunday as she performed "Best Thing I never Had" and "End of Time" in her sparkly gold glittered ensemble. BTW for those who missed her performance, you can watch some of it below. 

..and of course she performed some of her older hits including one of my favorites Halo.

Gotta love Bey!
