Brace yourselves rock fans, as Rihanna might be the one we'll be seeing among this year's Glastonbury festival headliners. The popular singer is reportedly negotiating a headlining performance at the Pyramid Stage, following the footsteps of Beyonce, who closed the Glastonbury 2011 at the very same stage.
"She is the perfect choice. Beyonce stole the show two years ago and there's no reason why Rihanna can't do the same. She's got a huge back catalogue and is undoubtedly the biggest female artist around at the moment bar Adele", one of the sources tells the Daily Star.
Rihanna seems quite eager to perform at the festival, saying that she could 'rock Glastonbury, no question'. The singer has also discovered that she is actually a big fan of rock music.
"I have heard so many things about what happens there. I love rock music. I love Kings Of Leon and The Prodigy. The music is awesome. I like the more traditional rock bands, too Aerosmith and Bon Jovi. I think I could rock Glastonbury, no question."
"I know Jay-Z played. They are open to a lot more R&B. And Umbrella would be the perfect song for that place, too."
The legendary Rolling Stones are also among the rumored headliners, so it appears that we might hear some good old traditional rock 'n' roll at Glastonbury after all. Despite the ongoing rumors, Daft Punk were officially ruled out for this year's performance.
The entire festival will be streamed live by the BBC for the very first time, using some of the latest digital technology to allow users the choice of viewing simultaneous live broadcasts from various stages.
So do you think Rihanna is the right choice here? And is "Umbrella" really a perfect song for Glastonbury? Let us know in the comments section below.
