Kanye re­ceives Swift jus­tice

Kalgoorlie Miner - - ENTERTAINMENT - Lon­don

The Bri­tish co­me­dian who in­vaded the stage dur­ing Kanye West’s Glastonbury fes­ti­val set has ded­i­cated his ac­tions to Tay­lor Swift.

Si­mon Brod­kin, aka TV fun­ny­man Lee Nel­son, ran on­stage dur­ing Kanye’s Black Skin­head per­for­mance on Satur­day night and jumped around next to the head­liner be­fore he was ap­pre­hended by a se­cu­rity guard.

Brod­kin’s ac­tions proved such a dis­trac­tion to Kanye, the rap­per was forced to restart the track as the comic was led away from the stage.

Brod­kin later took to Twit­ter, post­ing as Lee Nel­son, and stated: “I Kanye’d Kanye. That was for you tay­lor­swift13.”

The rap star in­fa­mously in­vaded the stage at the MTV Video Mu­sic Awards in 2009, when he in­ter­rupted Tay­lor Swift’s Best Fe­male Video ac­cep­tance speech to protest her win over his pal Bey­once.

Brod­kin has a history of pub­lic­ity stunt ar­rests — he took to the field with Manch­ester City play­ers and at­tempted to warm up with them be­fore a soc­cer match against Ever­ton in Liver­pool and he was also de­tained last year at­tempt­ing to board a flight to the World Cup in Brazil with the Eng­land football squad.
