UNLESS YOU’VE BEEN living under a rock you’ll know that Kanye West proclaimed himself to be the biggest rock star on the planet during his headline set at Glastonbury on Saturday night.

Last night, it was The Who’s turn to take on the main set on the Pyramid Stage, and they decided they weren’t going to let him away with it.

Pete Townsend announced to the crowd:

We’re gonna send him home now with a rebellious “oh Ye, who’s the biggest f**king rock star in the world?”

Townsend also got another dig in, suggesting that neither The Who nor Kanye deserved that title…

We can only imagine that Kanye is going to have something to say about this.
