Glastonbury death threats over West

Glastonbury's Emily Eavis has said she received death threats after booking Kanye West (below) as headliner for this year's event.

An online petition attracted more than 133,000 signatures calling for the rapper to be taken off the bill.

"It was not a pleasant world we unwrapped," said Ms Eavis, who organises the line-up with her father, Glastonbury founder Michael.

"I had death threats and stuff. It was just horrible. It was just crazy.

"It was quite upsetting because we were talking about something that was so exciting and interesting and fresh and brilliant for the festival."
